COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earthy rye and piny hop flavor and aroma meet spicy, funky characteristics from our farmhouse yeast in this American-inspired farmhouse ale.

Note: This Farmhouse version replaced the original Wytchmaker Rye IPA when Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all beers. The original bottles feature a small Jester King sticker on the neck; newer bottles do not have this sticker and say "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

I preface this review by saying bottle is nearly 2yrs old. Aged 1 year by me and 1 year by erzbierschof. Aroma is strong yeast and piney herbal hops. Yeast aroma fades quickly and rye earthy gains notes come through. Pours hazy golden color with lots of head. Taste is well balanced first piney hops then complex grains followed by funky yeast. Not at all traditional but A really interesting complex ipa!

Serving: Bottle. Amber orange pour with a thin white head. Nice yeast, barnyard, and citrus notes in the nose. Zesty flavor with a nice bit of funk, a little citrus, and light spiciness. The rye adds a nice touch.

On tap at brewery. The bartender said this keg was pulled from 2012 stock, so I am hoping I am rating this under the correct place. Cool beer all around. Hazy orange color. Nose had funk and hops and rye in almost equally parts…extremely well balance I thought. Taste was more of the same with just slight tartness. Cool hybrid!

hazy golden with a white head - Good aroma of malts and hops that givers fruits - Good malt to support a very good hop profile with fruits and citrus , and good bitterness to follow - Lasting hop bitter finish - This was good

Pours a nice cloudy amber color with off-white head. Citrus, pine, barnyard funk, spice, and grassy notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with funky grassy pine. Nice rye IPA.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 7.3%. Batch #7. Mild citric aroma, sweet malt and hay. Cloudy golden colour. Very big stable white head. The flavour has some vanilla at first, then comes sweetness, bitter alcohol and a rough bitterness. There is also citrus, sort of Bretty but not especially funky. High carbonation. Very slow gusher, but also very persistent.

Bottle. Pours hazy straw with abundant and stable white head. Clear aroma of hops, fruit, and citrus. Bitter and citric aroma of hops, yeast and citrus fruit. Lingering, bitter and sour-sweet afteraste. Nice.
