COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A ruckus of complex flavor is carried in on the amber glow of torchlight. As tension builds between hop bitterness and the malty tones delivered by locally grown and malted grist, a perfect balance is achieved. The robust texture of rye allies itself with the flavors from specialty malts and hops to rebel against preconceived notions of beer. Unseat the crown. Start a Riot.

dliberto (195) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - SEP 28, 2014
On tap at the 2014 Maryland Microbrewery Festival. Pours a nice reddish brown with a small foamy white head. Smells of citrus, rye, and some pine. Taste is much the same, the brew stays nice and dry throughout while providing focus on the rye. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and has a slight oily mouth feel. Nice Rye-p-a.

Glass at Meridian Pint. Pours a clear red/copper color with a medium white head. A nice fruity nose, grainy. The flavor is fresh fruity hops, a bit of bitter and spicy rye, earthy finish. Clean and nice.

Draught @ Smoke & Barrel, D.C. Clear red-amber, little head. Mildly carbonated. Fairly sweet - rosebud, but rye twange is there. Dry- hopped finish. Syrup character, rye marker. Smells more boozy than it is.

I really enjoyed this. Aromas of citrus hops. Flavor was a hop punch with a nice bitterness in there from the rye. Finished dry. Very enjoyable.

r464 (1944) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Crisp, lightly malty with a nutty base and hints of grain. Light citrus zest, bread, yeast, and a light earthiness. Hops through the finish are light and not overpowering, but just enough bitterness to announce their presence. Smooth and well balanced.
