BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall
Massachusetts, United States
harpoonbrewery.com

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Appearance: Light yellow golden color with moderate carbonation rising from the center. The body id clear and the head is an off-white color, thick fluffy and forms a mild ring around the glass.
Smell: mild apples, citrus rinds and grapefruits upfront, the hops smell really good here. Mild bready yeasts and spices also come through.
Taste: Hoppy but not as bitters as I thought, buttery no citrus rinds at all. There’s a good alcohol presence throughout.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied with mild carbonation.
Overall: Pretty good overall, a nice variation on the IPA.

Good copper color beer with a good white head. Very slightly hazy. Lots of rye smell. Like the smell the taste is a lot of rye and hips in the background. The hops have some pine and citrus. Medium body and carbs. It's an alright beer.
