Beer Style:  Rye IPA, a specialty off-shoot of American IPA, adds a bit of extra intrigue to the malt profile of this otherwise hop dominated beer. This Old Caz recipe goes BIG on aromatic hops.

Dominant Ingredients and Characteristics: Rye malt adds a unique spice-like element while no less than 7 oz of aromatic hops - Citra, Simcoe, Cascade, Amarillo - make a wonderful catastrophe.
