COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed with our proprietary yeast – the same yeast we’ve used since first brewing Harpoon Ale – and some interesting hop varieties. The combination of Pale, Rye, Caramel 60, Flaked Rye, and Vienna yield a complex malt body that stands up to the spiciness of the rye and the pronounced hop flavor. The rye also adds a reddish hue to the beer. The kettle additions of Centennial, Apollo, and Chinook, and the dry hop addition of Falconer’s Flight add a multidimensional hop character.

From the 12 fl oz. bottled version rather than the big bottle as it was first released. Best By 8/15/12. The pour is an amber-copper tone with a quick fizzy head that dissolves as quickly as it rises. Outstanding floral and piney hops on the nose and a bit of grain but little else. The body is medium and smooth. The taste is also highly hopped with a biting kind of bitterness that cuts through the back of my throat. A great beer for hopheads.

Clear amber pour, leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is very perfumey hops, spicy, caraway, pumpernickel bread. Bitter and hop forward, great spice from the rye, citrus, woody, my kind of IPA. The finish is floral with notes of juicy orange and piney hops. The palate is just slightly too thin. Rye IPAs are hot now, and this is a great example. Complex yet could easily knock back a few.

draft at Harpoon. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. notes of orange and lemon on the nose. The citrus on the tongue also has some pine sol notes. finish lingers a bit. Solid but not spectacular.

Beer pours dark honey color with a big, totally retained off white head. Aroma is predominately hoppy with big citrus and floral notes. Yum. The rye is buried under the hop aroma but is there somewhere. Flavor is pretty straightforwardly bitter with just a touch of rye sweetness. I am a sucker for rye IPAs and I really like this one!!!

12 oz. Bottle. I believe this is a new format for this beer. Pours a beautiful dark orangey color with some mild head. Tastes very balanced of hops and citrus but not over bearing...Now I know why they made this in 6-packs...awesome beer
