This American IPA from Cameron’s Brewing Company in Oakville, Ontario pours a hazy, rusty amber colour with a frothy tan head that leaves large streaks of lace and settles as a medium-sized collar and cap. Cameron’s Rye Pale Ale (RPA) has a Thick and grainy rye smell with a sharp, lemony citrus tone and accents of toffee, rain soaked flowers, berries, pepper and alcohol.
There is plenty of rye character to be found in the earthy and grainy taste of Cameron’s RPA. Grapefruit juice and lemon rind flavours contribute to a moderate bitterness that is countered by just enough sweetness from a hearty malt bill. Mild hints of yeast, biscuit and chocolate are also found. This ale is medium-bodied with low carbonation and a thin oiliness. The finish has a bitter bite to it with a strong, warming alcohol note and lingering rye flavour in the aftertaste.
