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!

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle shared by BrewEngingeer at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Pours a clear plum color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of rye, toffee and an earthy finish. The taste is sweet toffee notes, bitter rye and a faintly hoppy finish. Medium-full bodied. One of the hits of the tasting for me, easily. Damn good beer. Thanks James!

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle… Farewell to ibrew2or3… Clear, dirty orange ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aromatic highlights are spicy rye malt, sweet-rich caramel malt and citrus-fruity hops. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor furnishes a boatload of hop and rye spiciness, lupulin bitterness and plenty of caramel malt sweetness to balance things out a touch. This one still leans toward the bitter side when all is said and done. Lengthy, bittersweet finish… the bitterness lingers a long, long time.

Bottle in Chicago with TheAlum. Thanks Adam! 2011 vintage. Pours a murky dark orange appearance with little head. Fairly spicy, caramel, a bit oxidized, a touch fruity aroma. Fairly rich spicy rye, light toffee, mild molasses, a bit fruity, herbal flavor. Very smooth for the abv.

Pour big thanks to maximum12/Craig for the pour! Nice clear red pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of caramel, toffee, some spice, nice rye notes in there, touch of vanilla, slight cherry notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of caramel and toffee, some vanilla, caraway and rye spice, hints of sweet slight oxidized cherry, finishes fairly dry. Pretty nicely done, a bit one dimensional overall but good.

BMan1113VR (7895) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle thanks to BA billshmeinke. Pours with a clear bronze-copper body with a small tan head that shrinks but stays. Aromas are hoppy, sweet, citrus, pine, rye, bready, crisp, light chocolate and rose water. Very much an American Style Barley Wine. Flavors are sweet, rye, strong bitterness, caramel, pine, hops, marzipan, alcohol and burnt toffee. Medium bubbles, some warmth. Strong lingering bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 Bottle thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum! Thank alot, this was a mothers day gift for my mom who loves rye beers. She was nice enough to give me a 4 oz. pour. She said it was a 5/5, no hesitation. Now for my take. Pours a clear caramel brown with an off-white head. Aroma is full of sweet caramel, rye and an undertone of caraway. Flavor is nice caramel with a nice spice and rye undertone. Quite delicious.
