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.

kathouse (1642) - Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Deep Amber and a cream colored foam. Rye in this beer is very aggressive. Spice is overpowering and throws off balance. Not a favorite.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2015
In the can @ home, thanks to jcnielsen for sending! Pours a touch hazy, burnt orange appearance with a big cream colored head. The aroma is herbal, spicy, has some grapefruit and some dankness. A little bit of candy and tropical fruit in the nose. Medium body. Fairly low sweetness. Moderately low bitterness. Quite spicy from the rye and hops. Dank and peppery. Clean and easy to drink. Solid brew.

Dogbrick (11614) - 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.

Cybercat (5171) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2016 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. Trying again from a can that I brought from Asheville. Aroma has more rye to it, and as much resiny hops. It pours dark, hazy copper with a thick and frothy buff head. Maybe they revised the formula, or the process, or both?Flavor presents hoppy and lively rye notes, better than last time. Glad I decided to give it a second chance! Mouthfeel still has average body, but fizz is better and finish delivers plenty of bready rye. Take another swing at it.

GTAEgeek (1971) - 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.
