Notes/Commercial Description:
There is no doubt variety is the spice of life and we love going off in all kinds of directions looking for new flavors. Like all travel though at some point your heart turns back toward home. Home, robust American ales. This route travels along a path of piney American hops, Simcoe, Cluster, and Horizon their natural course coaxed toward spicy by a touch of rye. Drink Red Rye Returning because home is where the hops is.

On tap @ Barcade Jersey City.

Pours a nice amber color (SRM of 12), with a foam white head. No real nose to speak of, which I've noticed for some reason that some of Carton beers lack. It is listed at 50 IBU,
Hoped with piney simcoe, cluster, and horizon hops, with a spicy touch of rye. Overall a very nice rye ale, comparable to my favorite, Founders Red Rye. A great option for hop heads and I continue to look for more great beers from this local brewery.

32oz growler from Whole Foods. Faceted whiskey glass.

Very slightly hazed, cola brown body. Inch of sunken, off-white head.

Smells of brown bread, alcohol, & rind. Not very attractive so far.

Gritty/chewy, slightly charred malt. More dry then bittersweet. The beer is really dominated by a pithy, herbal bitterness that just lingers. Works better in their IPA then it does here. Toasty, tannic/tea-like finish.

Probably the weakest offering from Carton that I've had so far. Several other awesome beers in their limited portfolio though. I could drink BOAT or Monkey Chase till I vomit down . Just a bump in the road.
