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.

12oz bottle, best by 4/15/15, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a clear deep-golden color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a film that stays on top long after the pour, a bit of lacing left behind

S- earthy/dank aromas noticed up front, mixing with some peppery rye spice & some bready sweet malt. The hop aroma consists of tropical mango/passionfruit, with hints of citrus and grass

T- quite malty up front with toasted grains & bread crust, the hops take over mid-palate with some notes of citrus, fresh pine & mango, spicy rye finish with more sweet malt on the linger

M- medium-viscous body with moderate carbonation leads to a big creamy mouthfeel that continues into a smooth finish

O- well balanced with just enough spice from the rye, a good deal for the price and one that I would try again

Definitely one of my favorite Rye IPA's. Golden hue with a slight tint of red. Beautiful nose with plenty of spices and earthy notes. The most remarkable thing about this beer is the balance of all the different hops. Tastes of grapefruit, pine and a wonderful array of spiciness. Dry across the tounge. Give this a try. Doubt you will be disappointed.

Can't rave enough. My favorite go-to beer. Balanced in all aspects, nothing that overpowers the rest. Simply perfect.

A nice IPA. Nothing great and certainly nothing wrong. At this price point it is very good. Not a lot of rye presence. Bought in a mix pack.

A: Pours a nice clear amber orange color, very active head.

S: The aroma is floral and piney, clean and pleasant.

T: The hops are bold enough, and that same piney spice is present. There is a fresh citrus note that gets bitter on the finish.

F: Light and fluffy, we'll carbonated. Refreshing.

O: A well rounded, properly balanced IPA. Well worth trying, another strong offering from Harpoon.
