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.

A different IPA. Aroma was OK. Slightly lemony with hints of grains. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger off white head and plenty of rising bubbles. Taste was very dry and bitter. Light pilsner malt and strong biting hops attacking the top of the mouth. A little hot with good carbonation. No rye detectable in this beer, but good for what it is. Slightly thin mouth feel.

Lots going on with this one. Good carbonation with a light amber color. Bready-spice aromas. Flavor is complex, almost peppery. Smoothness. Good malty balance. Light citrus finish. Not bad at all.

rougeau13 (2215) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Amber, mostly clear, with a pillow of cream colored head. Thereís a good bit of lacing in there. Aroma, a health dose of pine and citrus, with caramel malt and rye. The rye comes out more in the taste. Mild malt profile, and a solid bitterness, but a bit lacking in depth. Medium bodied, quite dry, and smoothly carbonated, with a long bitter finish. I donít think the taste compliments the aroma very well, but itís a pretty good beer. Especially compared to most Harpoon brews that Iíve tried.

Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a rimmed white head. Aroma of hops, rye, caramel, and pine. Flavor of rye, caramel, pine, and a subtle hop bitter ending. Really nice beer!

Quevillon (2674) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
660 ml bottle purchased at a liquor store in Windsor, Vermont, on July 28, 2011. Honey blonde hazy, small head. Aroma of rye very dominant, with notes of raw barley, slightly hoppy. Taste of dry rye, slightly hoppy with hints of herbs and citrus, aftertaste of bitter cereal. A intense and enjoyable cereal IPA!

boto (1966) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Draught: This one poured a darker golden color with a bit of an amber hue. There was a good sized off-white head on it, that left a good deal of lacing. Grapefruit nose with a bit of pine. Some rye also. The taste is good. This one is fairly bitter, with grapefruit and pine hop tastes most prevalent. Some rye taste coming through also. Not a bad beer!
