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.

The appearance had a hazy copper colored body giving a one finger white foamy speckled head that lasted for a good minute before it concaved into the body lightly and slowly. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell had rye malts up front with some light hoppy notes giving a wonderful spicy scent. The taste brought these flavorings back boldly with some light caramel undertones. The palate had a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, just an overall great feel. Overall, I really liked this beer and would have it again.

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.
