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.

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.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting - Pours hazy golden with an aroma of citrus and mild malt. The flavor has good bitterness overlaying rye. Itís medium bodied and ends with a dry, crisp, bitter finish. Good.

The first beer I tasted at the brewery, the rye for me over powered the beer, leaving a notable hop finish.

Golden amber color with a thin off white head. Huge hop aroma that came right out of the bottle when openned. Nose of candied grapefruit rind and hop resin. This is a sweet IPA with pineapple, peach, grapefruit juice and a strong grain flavor. Long bitter finish. Big hop head beer.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Had on tap in a pint glass. Arrived with a thick, creamy two finger head and a slightly hazy light brown body. Aroma of piny hops with a little bit of caramel. Some rye spiciness was present as well. Floral and piny hops were up front in the taste along with some yeast. Spiciness was not as predominant as I was expecting. A little bit of pipe tobacco on the finish with a moderate to high bitterness. Mouthfeel was full and creamy. Being that I tend to love rye beers I was a little let down. Way too much yeast and not enough rye characteristics. Just an ok beer.

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.
