  • Notes: Rio's lucky release number 13 brings a significant change to the beer: it's hopbacked with whole leaf Mt. Hood hops! Brewmaster Kevin and brewer Kyle decided to try it out and you can immediately taste the wonderful results. This release of Rio's Rompin Rye starts out with a subtle, not overpowering, aroma of orange zest and light pine. The slight bitterness intensifies the rye flavor and lends to a crisp finish. This beer pours thick and murky with a thin white head and nice carbonation.
