COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scythe Rye Pale Ale (6.5% ABV): The nose of a traditional IPA, with the incredible malt complexity of a European pale ale. We use a healthy dose of rye and Belgian crystal malts and dry hop with a pound per barrel of our favorite under-appreciated American hop. It’s not overly bitter, but you won’t forget the hops. 7% Hop forward red ale brewed with high percentages of Rye and Belgian Crystal malts and buttloads of Summit, Chinook, Simcoe and Columbus hops. 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

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.
