The harvest lingers on, the blade still sharp. Weathered and beaten through seasons of wear, the Scythe has our trust when the field grows high. The beacon of utility, our rye india pale ale touches across the vital tenets of beer balance not by muting flavors, but by elevating them. A European crystal malt backbone is lifted by the drying herbal pop of Riverbend Malt’s Wrens Abruzzi Rye. “C” hops provide a grapefruit finish that remains curtained by the powerful aroma of blueberry & fresh pineapple, thanks to an exclusive Mosaic dry-hopping. Finish your work, wipe your brow, and reap this delicious reward.

NOTE: All beers labeled as Scythe go under this name.

DrSilverworm (7681) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery during RBWG. Mostly clear amber orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots and bits of lace. Great, smooth, lighter crisp carbonation. Medium body. Lightly click. Nice lightly spicy rye and good bigger citrusy hop. Medium to bigger bitter taste. Fantastic, smooth, easy drinking rye pale ale. Good longer aftertaste. Some caramel malt. Moderate sweet taste.

RBWG14 Trip Rating #80. Draft at the brewery. Thanks to a fellow Ratebeerian for the assist! Pours a hazy copper color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of strong rye and herbal hops. The taste is rye, toasted malts and an herbal hop finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2014
I really liked the contrast between the fruity, citrusy pineapple hops up front and the dry, crisp rye finish. This was right in my wheelhouse as far as session pale ales go. Good Stuff...

3fourths (8343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Draft at the brewery, Mosaic hop edition. Has the unmistakable Mosaic odor of burnt pineapple, pineapple rind and scallions to go with the seed bread and toasted cereal malt. Medium body, frothy carbonation, chewy late. Toasty / seedy malt character, medium to light sweetness, medium bitterness, low acid. A bit crunchy and grainy but overall a solid effort, just boring.

TURDFERGUSON (4002) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
tap at the source. Cool little place with nice people. even picked up a sweet zip up hoodie! This was my favorite beer at Burial. What a shocker than it happened to be an IPA-like beer, though I found all of their beers to be more than solid. Citrusy, tropical fruits abound with a good dose of slightly spicy rye.
