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.

Draft at Burial during RBWG. Pours a clear golden color with orange highlights and a small white head. The aroma and flavor have nice citrus, dank and resiny hops, spicy rye notes, pale toasted malts, this was a solid pale ale that I could drink a bunch of if it were local.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 On draft. Rich ruby color. Tangy grapefruit aroma (maybe -- is really hard to get nose out of a mason jar). Thick, chewy rye flavor with the oak aging coming through at the finish. Superb.

Great rye pale ale. Nice when brewers don’t shy away from the rye as if it is the geeky cousin of wheat that no one wants to hang out with. Pours perfect copper red color with almost no head. It’s a flavor explosion- rye, pine, flowers, citrus, resin, caramel and an overall sweetness to it that is just a hint too much. Hops at a nice bitterness to finish but all sweetness up front. Nice dankness and slick mouthfeel. With the sweetness toned down, would be an almost perfect recipe.

phaleslu (8215) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Draft served in a taster at the brewery. Pours a clear, red-gold color without much of a head. Notes of rye, grass, paper, florals, dust, pine, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Kind of dank, too. Has a dusty, musty nose and a really nice flavor. Good rye pale ale.
