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.

Dogbrick (10752) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Sample at the taproom. Clear copper-gold color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Piney hops, citrus and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, citrus and rye malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops and rye aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Tap. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus and rye aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy rye and herbal hop flavor with a medium rye bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex beer.

Cybercat (4639) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours clear golden with a thin ivory head. Malty aroma has a hoppy overtone. Flavor is hoppy and malty with a hint of rye, not much else. Mouthfeel has average body and fizz. Go ahead, harvest one on a hot day.

Travlr (19567) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at the source. Clear deep golden amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of dusty and lightly spiced pine. Taste is earth pine resin, rye bread. Very tasty.

GTAEgeek (1767) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Sample in a flight at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy brown, with a thin head. Dominant rye bread aroma, with some earthy and pine notes, and an undercurrent of pineapple. Low, citrusy sweetness, and an aggressive, but smooth and pleasant, bitterness. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, sticky, and a little harsh. Overall, this is not the most aromatic beer, but the flavor is fantastic. Strangely sessionable. Wish I’d had a full glass of this.

Sample During RBWG Day 2, Asheville. Light amber pour with a medium off-white head. Melon, yellow apples, strawberry Charleston Chew. Quite sweet. Slightly spicy grain accents. Pepper, dirt. More melon and apple. Sort of oily, medium body.

alexsdad06 (8166) - Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2014
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.
