Fixation Brewing Rye IPA

Fixation Brewing Co (Lion/Kirin)

Published September 4, 2018

If you've reached this beer after working your way through some of the paler, lower ABV and more hop forward beers lining The Incubator taps, you could be forgiven for thinking they'd forgotten to add some of the hops to the Rye IPA. With plenty of rye and a fair bit of caramel malt in the mix, your hop-battered olfactory system is likely to be drawn to its rich and smooth caramel and toffee side. But, given time (for the beer to warm a little as well as your senses to recalibrate), the classic US hops, Centennial, Amarillo and Simcoe, rise to the occasion.

They do so by bringing a touch of pine and spice, something a little herbal and maybe even sweetly citrusy to play. That said, they're junior partners here as the rye helps deliver a creaminess, as well as sweetness and spice, to what's a really rather seductive beer.
