BEER INFO

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

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.

Pours a bright orange color with white head and spotty lacing. The aroma has a good blend of malts and rye grains, some fruity notes from yeast and hops round it out. The taste has mostly rye grain notes and a satisfying spice bite with the hops leaving the palate dry. Each sip leads to a need for another, and this beer was consumed in a matter of fact fashion. Harpoon makes decent, drinkable beers and everything is well in Massachusetts.
