COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They should be good men; their affairs as righteous: But all hoods make not monks. Beneath a deep blanket of snow there is a cereal grain that can survive the harsh winters and acidic soils - RYE. Like a draped hood over a monk, it is the righteousness inside that shines.

ladnewton (1569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2011
On tap at Brinkley’s, Manhattan NY on 19th July 2011. Copper with offwhite head. Aroma of fruit grain and spice - beautifully fragrant. Main taste of liquid is rich, pungently fragrant earth, herbs spice and berry fruit. Very bitter and herby finish. Thick, full-mouth engaging texture, zingy feel. Great.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
16oz can. Pours dark red and orange and amber with a large, creamy beige head that leaves sticky lacing. Aromas are sweet, with slightly tangy lemonpeel and doughy malt. The flavor is bitter initially, with citrus and slight pine, offset mildly with some sweet malts. Medium carbonation and body. Alright, but I guess I’m missing what other people are getting here.

pours deep burnt red with a thin white head and nice lacing. aroma is fresh crisp and acidic. taste is dominated by hops but there is a healthy amount of cranberry juice and even lime with a peppery quality balancing the whole thing out. finish bitter but with slight a fruity sweetness. interesting.

BrewBoxer (2366) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Can. Deep brown colorw. No head. Moderate lacing. Smalls of pine, hops, bread and dough. Taste is hoppy like an ipa with a sligjtly malty backlbone and spucey finish. Possibly rye. Not bad. Really good compared to a lot of ryes out there...and its in a can!

bhensonb (12040) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Can from Half Time. Pours dark ruddy amber with a creamy beige head. Nose is largely citrus hop over roasty malt. Med + body. Flavor is rye but there’s an large amount of hop. Floral and citrus hop with a little pine(maybe that’s rye?). Quite tasty, and it is NW hoppy.

superspak (3161) - Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2011
16 ounce can, best by Sept. 29, 2011. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a dense 2 finger off white head with great retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts. Some decent lacing is left on the glass as well. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, spicy rye, pine, and citrus. A lot of interesting aromas going on here, great stuff. Taste of caramel, rye, chocolate, pine, bread, nuttiness, and some citrus. Mostly malty sweetness on the front with a decent amount of bitterness on the finish that lingers for a bit with caramel, chocolate, bread, and pine. Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. No alcohol noticed in the taste or finish. Decent amount of creaminess in the mouthfeel as well. Nice balance as well between sweetness and bitterness, with the sweetness being slightly stronger. Overall, an excellent rye ale, highly enjoyable and very drinkable stuff.

Pour is a deep brown color with a reddish hue with a light manilla head. Nose is of grains and citrus. Taste is very similar with a hint of hop in the finish with a nice leading grain note.

dagimp (786) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2011
From a tallboy into a snifter. Pours a really cool reddish brown... or dirt brown, depending on your perspective. Plenty of thick head on this one but little lacing and a whisp o’ lacing on the top of the brew. Aroma is of cinnamon, pine, watermelon and hops. Mouthfeel is tangy but thick, not too thick though. Taste is of pine, dough, lemon rind, pepper, and some unidentified sourness. Overall a really good beer. I am partial to rye beers and this one holds its own against any one I’ve ever tasted. Thank G-d that Sixpoint started canning!

DalzAle (2002) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Can. Clear medium brown pour and a slowly dissipating head which left some nice lacing. Aroma is also really nice, very peppery/spicy hop nose. Flavor is light on malt, heavy on the rye which seemed to make it seem very dry while drinking the entire pint. Flavor was also nicely balanced with some nice hot hops which lingered long after the beer was swallowed. These Sixpoint cans are pretty solid, I need to get some more of these.
