Blue Point RastafaRye Ale

Blue Point Brewing Company

USA

I LOVE rye ales, but I was underwhelmed by this one, particularly due to the cost versus what I got (came in a 22oz bomber). It was a cloudy orange poured into the glass, and it was more malty than hoppy. Rye ales are great when loaded with aromatic hops, but this came in at 48 IBU. Overall flavor was good, but I would've enjoyed more of a citrus background to couple with the rye, similar to Terrapin's rye pale ale. However, with that said, proceeds from this beer go to supporting orphanages in the Caribbean, so the cause is a good one.
