This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A special rye beer brewed in collaboration with our friends at Reckless Records. Brewed with American 2-row barley & rye medium bodied ale has a sweet caramel biscuit body and a deep golden color. A special blend of hops gives this rye ale an aroma of resiny tangerines & blood fruit. Cheer!

Tanks merc for sharing

The beer pours a clear amber with a thin off-white head that laces. The nose is citrusy hoppy with a touch of rye spice and malt. The taste is relatively underwhelming with an expected amount of citrus hoppiness and touch rye spice. I could imagine this taste popping with a fresh bottle. The mouthfeel is almost syrupy sweet with a lingering spiciness. Good beer that'd be made great with freshness.
