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.

One of my favorite all day drinking beers. Lots of hops without the bitterness. Tons of malt without the sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Summit not nearly as present as before, but well replaced by Mosaic. Loving this beer as an everyday drinker around 6.5%. Great job. Could use a touch more rye, though it is ever apparent here

Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Massive rye notes on the nose. Massive spicy rye on the tongue combined nicely with some grapefruit style hops which are quite flavorful. Finished clean. Nice example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at the brewery, this pours the deepest amber, with a sudsy head and lacing. The nose is vegetal and savory. Flavors of definitive rye and butter (without diacetyl alcohol), making an almost savory brew that would pair perfectly with burgers. And I mean perfectly. The full body accompanies a complex, substantive palate. Very nice and interesting rye here. You know, after talking to the brewer about all of the unique "takes" on traditional styles they do, I am becoming a real fan.... quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

2014 RBWG At the brewery’s tasting room. Red-tinged body with a white head. Aroma of piney hops. The flavor is moderately bitter. Fruity and citrusy.

Can from Michael (misterburd); cheers, buddy! This is exactly what I want in my Rye IPAs -- it’s spicey, bitter, and with a great balance between the earthiness from the malts and a pine flavor from the hops.
