COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our "Hi-Fi Rye" is brewed with almost 60% malted rye to give this beer a very rich and intense maltiness. The American hop varieties used impart complex citric, spicy, earthy notes, and combine to amplify the rye character. The tradition of the barley wine-style ale is carried out with this ode in rye. Cheers!

brokensail (11077) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
This rating is from the 2011 batch. A: The pour is a dark amber color with high carbonation and an off-white head. S: Smells barleywine-esque to begin with. Sweet caramel, toffee, and brown sugar aromas. The rye and caraway really provide a lot to the beer and are definitely noticeable. Mild hop aroma of citrus peel and floral notes. T: A mild to moderate bitterness with plenty of toffee, bread, and brown sugar. Spicy rye notes with plenty of caraway providing a really distinctive flavor to this beer. The hop flavor is there, but not the main attraction. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. Maybe a bit high for a barleywine. O: A good barleywine all around. Good aromas and flavors and not harsh or overly boozy.
