Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is brewed with our proprietary yeast – the same yeast we’ve used since first brewing Harpoon Ale – and some interesting hop varieties. The combination of Pale, Rye, Caramel 60, Flaked Rye, and Vienna yield a complex malt body that stands up to the spiciness of the rye and the pronounced hop flavor. The rye also adds a reddish hue to the beer. The kettle additions of Centennial, Apollo, and Chinook, and the dry hop addition of Falconer’s Flight add a multidimensional hop character.

Serving: On tap at the brew hall, in a sampler
Serving: 6 September 2014

Appearance: Crystal clear beer with good carbonation and a nice soapy white head. Nice deep color. Best looking IPA from Harpoon by far. 3.75/5

Aroma: Nice sweet malts with a strong hint of grapefruit citrusiness from the hops. 4/5

Taste: One of Harpoon's best! Nice maltiness carries assertive citrus hops all the way through the sip. The hops taste clean and fresh for once rather than dank like most hoppy Harpoon beers. Some nice spice on the back end from the rye.

Mouthfeel: Decent carbonation lends the beer some nice body. 3.75/5

Overall: One of Harpoon's best offerings, and doubtlessly their best hoppy beer I've had to date. Would recommend for Harpoon fans. 3.75/5

Wow - this is my favorite Harpoon beer that I have had in a 12 oz bottle. Looking at the picture associated on the website, it started as a 100 barrel series beer. Good choice to bring to a 12 pack.
a. - Orangish in huge with a 1 finger head when poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet glass.
s. Hops, carmel, rye, sweet smell (dry hop??)
t. Outstanding! This is where the beer shines. Rye, some sweet, good hops - great balance.
m. Smooth. A bit dry on the back, but very, very good. Easy to Drink.
o. Boarder-line outstanding beer.
