This beer is brewed with our proprietary yeast Ė the same yeast weíve used since first brewing Harpoon Ale Ė 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 Falconerís Flight add a multidimensional hop character.

~6 oz sampler at the Harpoon taproom in Boston Logan airport. The pour is mostly clear copper orange, with a small off white head. The aroma is light citrus hop, along with rye grain - nice interplay, though both aromas are pretty faint. The taste picks up on the spicy Rye, and then leads to resinous and the citrus orange fruit hop. Nice balance of flavors. The palate is medium bodied, low carbonation level, and a clean finish. Nice one.

12oz into a bulbous wheat glass. Pours a rich and dark amber brown with an orange backbone. Head is solid and omits a level 2cm ring around the brew throughout. Taste is bitter, hoppy, grapefruit, sour melon, and tart. Aroma is dry hops, refreshing rye, and a cascade of orange and biscutty malt. A very fluid and sippable rye, while not too bitter it withstands the squinced eyelids that some ryes may omit.

Aroma is rye, spices, yeast and hops. The flavor is rye, malts, citrus and a dry/bitter finish. Probably the best Harpoon brew Iíve had.

rye is apparent with a spicy graininess in aroma, but hoppiness is more resin and pine and thereís a bit too much sweetness / caramel. flavor is sweet in front and slightly harsh and bitter in back. could really use some fruity hoppiness, but itís interesting and tasty. medium body, quite a dry finish.

First and foremost this is my favorite style of beer...secondly this is a great beer... Aroma is well balanced hops are present and bright but the spiciness from the right malt is there Flavor showcases the spice and is matched nicely with the floral bitr from the hops this beer was a pleasant surprise
