The reaper's harvest was decent. It poured a clear copper with white head and no lace. The scent and taste were bitter...not much in the form of pine or citrus. The taste was balanced enught to make it drinkable. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was ok.

On tap at The Abbey on Butler St in Pittsburgh, PA.

This one pours a clear dark copper brown, with a small white head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like rye, spicy hops, grapefruit, a little bit of orange, and sweet caramel malt.

This is pretty solid, but not great. This nails both the earthy spiciness of the rye, and the hoppy spiciness of wet-hopped beers pretty well. It's a quite malty IPA, with lots of bready and caramel malt character, but the hop character is still significant, and rises above that. I get some light fruitiness- grapefruit and orange, with lots of spicy pine and grassiness.

This is medium bodied, and pretty drinkable, with a good level of carbonation.

This is my first beer from Helltown, and I'm fairly impressed. Pretty tasty stuff.
