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.

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 (839) - 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 Ive ever tasted. Thank G-d that Sixpoint started canning!

DalzAle (2011) - 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.

Can from Whole Foods, Union Square. Red amber with a hoppy nose. Taste is smooth hops. Quite nice, slightly spicy. Bitter finish.

deyholla (8347) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Can. Pours a near clear brown with a slight amber hue and a white head that laces thickly. Aroma has a really nice citrus hop note backed by some light pine and a nice rye note as well. Flavor begins with a bit of light rye that combines nicely with some citrus and grapefruit and has a bit of pine towards the finish. Really nice beer.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Im a sucker for a beer which delves into rye for some reason and this one has a nice dark sticky malty base to it along with a generous dose of hops which have a wet citrus west coast style profile which accentuates things very well. There is a bit of a dark oil smelling caramel piece which Im not fond of but overall I enjoy it.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Can... Poured dark, reddish with an off-white head. Sweet, slightly bittering tones from the rye. Honey, malt sweetness, and decent punch of earthy, peppery hops for balance. Very clean and a worty finish.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Clear reddish gold with a half inch head that retains very nicely. Aromas of rye, caramel, toast, orange zest, and earthy hops. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter. Like a lot of rye beers, this is pretty well balanced. The sweet rye, honey, and earthy notes are finished nicely by a mild citrus hop kick. Dry finish, not necessarily bitter like an IPA. Solid, semi-light mouthfeel. Not a huge Sixpoint fan, but I love rye beers and 16 oz cans. Well done.

bth122 (1342) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Can, amber color, modest head. Aroma of grainy hop, simular to ipa. Medium bitterness. Med body, Ave carbonation. Earthy, grass bitter pungeant taste with malt tones. Not bad.
