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.

Best before 10-15-2012.

A: The body is a slightly hazy dark amber/copper body with a steady stream of carbonation from the nucleation point on my glass. A thin yet dense and creamy light tan head sits on top, not much retention but leaves a dense coating on top.

S: Interesting spicy, bready and citrus aroma hinting at a slight bitterness to this, mildly sweet.

T: Bready malts with rye spice on the intro with hints of caramel, the rye spice continues through to the end underlying the beer, while a spicy pine hop bitterness matches the rye really well. The finish hints at citrus and lingers for a bit of spice and dries out really well. This is a good beer.

M: Medium bodied with crisp carbonation.

O: This is a great addition to their year-round line-up. This is a very solid Rye IPA and the hop choices really do well matching the rye in here.

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2015
EBD 11/15/14. Pours a clear medium amber with a slight hint of garnet. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of pine, citrus and spicy rye over a biscuit and caramel base. Medium body with a slick texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a strong burst in the finish. The flavor profile is intense, moderately complex and well balanced. It begins with a bready rye note that is a bit spicy. The middle brings a mild bitterness that has a bit of rind and pine flavor. As the bitterness fades, a rich malt sweetness comes to the forefront coupled with mango notes from the hops. The finish is a slow fade of rind, caramel and a nice rye bite.

Listigovers (916) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
Hop resin aroma, reddish colour. Not too bitter, some rye afteratse, could be a bit heavier bodied, although it’s medium bodied. Decent I guess.
