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.

lamas (1425) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Draft at Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza, Friendship Heights, DC location on 03/28/14. Served up a hazy reddish brown with a thin beige head. The aroma featured lots of rye bread, caramel, toffee, grapefruits, and zesty citrus rinds. Went down relatively thin to medium-bodied. The taste started with quite a bit of caramel and a sizable rye breadiness. Grain and herbal qualities were abundant in the spicy middle. Plenty of grapefruits and zesty citrus rinds finished things off with a bitterness that lingered.

Draught @ Open City Café, Washington. Pours black-red with fading white head. Bit malty sweetish nose, but flavour is all business: rye sticky and sticking out, roasted malts, with an almost dry bitter finish. Liking it.
