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!

Caramel color. Small white head. Spicy rye and toffee aroma. Flavor is nice, spicy rye, some toffee. Drinks like a young barleywine even though its a few years old. Good but not great.

22oz, yellow waxed bottle courtesy of drunkenpolack. thanks, dave! pours a hazy, reddish mahagony with a thick, rocky, beige head and nice lacing. aroma is great with sweet, perfumy hops, caraway seeds, rye crusts, and raw pine backed by hints of dry earth, berries, and orange zest. flavor is damn nice as well with spicy, toasted rye, heavy pine esters, and slightly sweet citrus hop notes backed by light caramel malts and a touch of vinous fruit. palate is full bodied, sticky, and crisp on the palate with a light, herbal, toasted finish. overall, a damn nice barley wine and i’ve got to get my hands on the barrel-aged version.

22oz bottle. Pours brown with a small tan had. Aroma is of rye, malt, dark fruit, sugar, and caramel. Taste is actually pretty big on the rye. There is also lots of dark fruit, sugar, spice, and caramel. Very dry malt base evens the beer out. As it warms, more raisin starts to come through. Lingering taste of rye and dark fruit. Very light, creamy mouthfeel. It’s boozy, but not in a bad way. I really liked this beer.
