Andy and Nick have also been busy creating some special new beers for Penn’s “Brewmaster’s Choice” series for fall. Andy’s harvest rye IPA is slated to debut on October 2. “Our rye IPA will be brewed with a blend of rye and two-row barley Pilsen malts,” says Andy. “This red ale will feature a malty balance with a pronounced hop bitterness and aroma,” he adds. The limited-edition seasonal ale will be available on draft at Penn Brewery and other select bars and restaurants around town.

ON Tap at 3 Sons. Very nice beer. Wonder why it took Penn so long to make one. Amber color, very nice head, full IPA impact with that spicy effect from Rye.

Reddish brown in the glass. Notes of spicy rye malt and a bright hoppiness. Nice bitterness on the palate with a medium-full body. Good balance overall. Enjoyed this one.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
On tap at Mad Mex, McKnight Rd. Medium hop aroma, herbal, and lightly spicy. Sweet roasted character, light grainy notes but can’t detect a lot of rye in the nose. Deep brown-amber clear with thin creamy lacing off-white head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts with medium roasty sweet flavor with brown sugar, fresh hops, and light rye spiciness. Light bitter character that becomes more pronounced towards the finish. Gets drier, too. Spicy hop notes and dry bitter after.

Bottle courtesy at Andy’s New Years Eve party/tasting/Fluxx tournament. Pours a clear orange tinged dark amber with a medium sized wheat to beige head. Soft hops and earthy rye, light citrus. Medium bodied, earthy rye and grain. Light bitterness on the finish, good malty backbone. Easy drinking.

One of the better rye ipas around. Nice hoppy nose, initial flavor was good it quickly faded. Not too dry.

Dark reddish brown, beige cover. Aroma is lots of C-hops, some spicy, grapefruit tones, then lots of peppery rye malt. Taste is similar, the rye seems to dominate at first, but then the bittering hops power through at the end. In my opinion, it is too much of either the rye or the hops. I would prefer to see one toned back and not clash as much with the other.

"Penn Harvest RyePA" draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie, McMurray, PA on 11/18/11. Came to the table a clear reddish amber color with a thick beige head. A pleasant aroma of spicy rye, pine, grapefruits, caramel, and an ample roasted maltiness. Went down relatively medium-bodied. No surprises taste-wise - lots of caramel and big roasted malty qualities upfront. Spicy rye and grapefruits at the end. Well-balanced, pleasant, and drinkable.

Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lated with fair lacing. Moderate toasted rye and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

First try from Penn Brewing - poured from 22oz bottle - I like beers made with rye and I have tried some good ones--this one is average. Fantastic ruddy appearance; sticky lacing; little on the bitter side. Balanced? Maybe, but I would like a little more malt in there to balance out the rye that can desiccate your mouth. Full, creamy texture. Not bad.
