COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with three varieties of hops and a generous amount of specialty malts, Rowdy offers a complex flavor and aroma that is both aggressive and fun. The addition of malted rye to the grain bill lends a peppery and distinct character to the beer which complements the bitterness and floral notes of brewhouse hop additions. Finally, this copper-hued ale receives a liberal addition of dry hops in the fermenting vessel, imparting citrus aromas and a crisp, clean finish.

floydslip (232) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Dark mahogany beer with a medium foamy light beige head. Somewhat unusual nose for the style with light citrus hops, a bit of pepper, and subtle cereal grains. The flavor provides more sweet malt that forms a base for a few other flavors, such as earthy spice, wood, and even a bit of smoke. This is then finished with an astringent bitterness that coats the tongue. Good beer.
