COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

3fourths (8555) - 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.

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.
