India Pale Ale brewed with nearly three pounds of hops per barrel and 15% malted rye. Dry, flavorful, drinkable beer with vibrant notes of citrus, tropical fruit and pine.

Note: This entry is the original Wytchmaker. Beginning around the time of their first anniversary, Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all of their beers. All ratings after this switch should be entered under the Farmhouse Wytchmaker Rye IPA entry. The original Wytchmaker bottles feature a small Jester King sticker on the neck; the Farmhouse Wytchmaker bottles have the word "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

Bottled. Pours a hazy orange with a good lasting head. Aroma of peaches and alfalfa hay. Moderately sweet with a little musty and earthy, with the rye accenting the dry finish.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours a clear amber with tons of white head. Aroma is strangely soapy, barnyard, not hoppy at all. Taste is very tart, crisp, and dry. Not much malt coming through. Some hop stickiness is present. I believe this has some Brett in it, but i’m not downgrading a beer with Brett that is called "wytchmaker".

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It’s an unclear, golden orange beer, with a dense, creamy and large off-white head. Hints of lemon in the aroma, very fruity and piney, with some faint resiny hints. Not much maltyness going on. The flavor too is on the hoppy side, some maltyness as a foundation for the fruityness, pine cones and bitterness. A bit too effervescent on the palate, but I sort of like it. Full body, and a bitter finish with lemon peel. A really tasteful and pleasant beer. 120525

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark red-amber beer with a persistent beige foam; nice lacework; hoppy aroma of mango and elderflowers; overcarbonated, medium-bodied, some smoothiness and a corny tartness; fairly bitter, fizzy and hoppy fruity finish with some residual sugars

Slight haze on this amber beer. Massive off white head. Palate is airy and crispy. Smooth hops - a little minty, pine too. Mild tropical fruits. A little rye spice. Good stuff.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2013
From 0.75l bottle @ Borefts 2012. This is a hazy dark heather-honey colored one with a small sidesticking off-white head. Classic American on the nose fruity, hoppy, peaches and a sweet malty background. A bit + sweet perhaps? Nice. It has a soft to average carbonation level and a gliding oily mouthfeel. Great piney bitterness, kinda concentrated and sweet. Caramel and dried caramelized fruits. A nice one! 28.09.2012
