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.

deyholla (7528) - 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
I’m 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 I’m not fond of but overall I enjoy it.

boFNjackson (4185) - 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.

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.

thornecb (4689) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Pours deep amber into a Shaker. Off-white micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Caramel, pumpernickel and resin aromas. Medium bodied with sweet cinnamon roll upfront turning to pumpernickel before the last rye finish.

dmac (4480) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Served from the new 16oz cans that lists the ABV as only 6.3%. At first glance it appeared as if this beer poured a deep chocolate brown but upon holding it up to the light I can see that is actually more of clear super deep reddish/orange. The head was of average sized but very foamy and of an off white that dropped the appearance down from a 4 to a 3. Aroma has a good dose of rye bread up front followed by chocolate, spiceyness and citrus hops. Fuller bodied with foamy mouthfeel and average carbonation with a good strong lingering aftertaste. Flavor of rye, chocolate, grass, slightly wet leather, a hint of metal. I really like this.
