Crafty Brewing Irish IPA Review

The Rye River Brewery

The Rye River Brewing Company began back in 2013 and is based in Celbridge, Kildare. Working with Lidl supermarket to bring out the supermarket branded craft beers.

 The Irish IPA is a hazy, slightly cloudy beer. Has an aroma of grassy hops, combining with hints of peach, apricot and citrus flavours coming through

Medium body, which combines with a slightly creamy texture to mask the strength of this brew. Clear head, this looks a clean beer.

What’s In It

Water, barley malt, glucose syrup, wheat malt, spice flavourings, aromatic citrus, hop extract

Tastes Like

Light, hoppy, fruity. Citrus comes through in leaps and bounds. Possibly peach and mango in there too, which adds that little bit of sweetness.

The Data

    • Bottle size: 500 ml
    • Alcohol content: 6.0 %

Beer Enjoyment Score Total

A very pleasant drink, ideal for a summer day sat out in the beer garden or at home with a BBQ on the go. An impressive 6.0% provides that bit of a kick, but it’s subtle so doesn’t leap out at you.

For an IPA this has a lot going for it. This ale has the ability to lure you into a false sense of security, the taste is subtle but the underlying strength is one to watch out for.
