COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy red ale brewed with Rye malt. Deep ruby red in color, this hoppy American Red Ale speaks to the adventure drinker. Rye malt lends a subtle earthiness and silky body, which complements the big caramel and chocolate malt flavors. Just enough Pacific Northwest hops are added to balance this bold and beautiful beer.

Hazy copper with tan head. Fantastic lacing. Caramel dominates aroma with earthy hops. Full, chewy yeast and malt follow through with a full caramel and toast flavor.

The_Osprey (6246) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
August 2016 - Bottle share at Chriso’s Sunday Shindig. Thanks! As ’Ale Industries Ryed Piper’. Brown with an orange hue, foamy tan head. Aroma is rye, pine, jammy fruits. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is rye bread, cardboard malts, blackcurrant, tangy fruits, light sherbet and some booze showing up. Very good, I think. (3.8)

sebletitje (9163) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2015
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Cuivrée versant vers l’acajou, col crémeux beige. Arôme au bouquet houblonné agrumes, rétro grains - cara pils, seigle un peu trop en avant. Sorte de rappel thé vert. Palais est épicé, donnant une impression de Black IPA. Note agrumes qui se mêle à un malté centré plus sur le carapils, pâle et Munich. Le seigle perdure sur la fin apportant une fine note épicée, cara léger, herbacé sur la fin avec un léger pamplemousse. Ok mais pas le meilleur exemple du style.

Tap at the Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Poured a hazy medium brown with a thin whispy off white head. The aroma is yeast, light grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big woody hop bitter, light resin palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
