PictureI remember when Fire in the Rye first came out. Double Trouble was insanely proud of it and were showing it off at every craft beer fest they could. I had a lot of it back then, but sadly it was before Toronto Booze Hound existed.

Now we exist though, so we shall talk about it!

I think I was first introduced to it at a Christmas craft beer fest on Queen West. I could be wrong though.

Fire in the Rye is a unique mix of roasted rye with some centennial hops, giving it a very unique combo of flavours.

You can pick up Fire in the Rye at the LCBO for just $2.95 a can, and it sits at 6.1% ABV.

Appearance: Soda like brown colouring with a soft off white head. Filtered.
Aroma: Toasted bread and a hint of tropical fruits.
Taste: Very sweet. Roasted sugar, caramel, vanilla and more.
Aftertaste: Dry and short.
Overall: A unique Ale that I certainly can enjoy.
