12oz bottle traded to me by G311. thanks again Vince! drank from my samuel adams perfect pint glass.

A- this one pours out a hazy orange colored body with some serious copper highlights. the head on top is a solid finger and is beige colored. moderate retention and sticky rings get left on the sides of my glass.

S- very heavy on the malted rye. nice and spicy. honey and biscuit malts. citric (grapefruit, orange, and lemon), floral, and spicy hops at the end.

T- the taste starts out with with biscuit and bread like malts. a little bit of caramel malts come through and add in a little sweetness. the spicy rye malts come through strong. decently malty upfront, but dont be fooled. this is a DIPA at heart. very strong on the hops. grapefruit, orange zest, lemon peel, floral, and spicy notes. way more complex than the original rye pale ale.

M- this is a syrupy full bodied ale. the carbonation is moderate. nicely bitter without being overpowering. the alcohol is well hidden.

O- a very enjoyable and pretty large rye IPA. this is something id drink more of if it were available here. terrapin is a solid brewery that needs more attention.

Excellent. Smooth, with a slight citrus presence. “Double the malt, double the hops, and double the flavor of the original Rye Pale Ale recipe. (Hence the name Rye Squared.) With its mammoth hop aroma, bitterness and flavor, this beer is not for the faint at heart. The Rye Squared clocks in at a hefty 8.5% ABV so double your pleasure and double your fun because Terrapin went a little crazy with this one!”

It's a shame they retired this, it was one of my favorites and the best rye I've ever had.
