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.

Can from wine warehouse. Pours brown with an inch of white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Slight notes of rye on the nose. A bit of citrus hops to blend with the rye flavor but it seems rather faint. Maybe it would be bolder on tap.

Pretty we’ll drinkable and great balance for a session ale. Pours hazy dark brown with great head and lacing. Finishes with medium bitterness. Some citrus. Can.

Can from Wine Emporium December 2013. A bit too grainy for me with grain aroma and sweet light malt flavour.

"this was a nice, hoppy brew, but didn’t have nearly as much uniqueness or rye influence as i expected. Pretty nice, though, as a functional ipa (better than their standard ipa easily)."

Thanks to whoever brought this one to our IPA day celebration.

A - Pours amber brown with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small wisps of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of tons of spicy rye, buiscuity malt, pepper, dulled fruit, and just the faintest hint of citric hops.

T - Starts off with plenty of rye spiciness slowly giving way to a mix of chewy caramel malt, peppery spice, and some nice citric hop bitterness. The finish is a mix of chewy grains and some dulled hop bitterness, lingering for a short period of time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy, spicy, feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.

O - Not too bad. This was one of the spiciest rye beers I have ever had yet I still enjoyed it. Thanks again to whoever brought it to the party.

Transfer from BA review on 3-19-13- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a brown colored brew with a one finger off white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a bready nature with tons of rye and a wheat smell. Mixed with these more malty aromas is a good sweet caramel smell as well as a moderate presence of some citrus an earthy hop smells. Taste – The taste begins with a nice rye flavor which creates a base for the other flavors of the brew. Mixed with the rye upfront, there is a rather nice mix of hop flavors- some earthy, grapefruit citrus, and herbal tastes. The flavor sweetens ever so slightly with a caramel flavor coming to the tongue at the middle of the taste. This fades more toward the end where more bitter citrus hop of grapefruit, some lemongrass, and grassy flavors become even more pronounced. The hop never becomes too potent but provides a nice balance to the rye malt flavors of the brew to, in the end, leave a pleasant lightly hopped rye flavor on the tongue.. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is average to just above average. Both make for a rather crisp feel on the tongue and are rather nice for the mix of hop and rye that are present in the brew. Overall – This is a great, rather rye potent brew, with a nice hop profile and balance for the more malty and rye flavors of the brew. Quite tasty and a good drinker.

NikkTwist (1746) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2014
This was a staple for me back in the (now long gone) Sugarmoms days. Now having for the first time in two years at Khyber Pass (August 2014). Clear medium copper pour with a good amount of froth on top. Very nice spicy rye flavors. Blood oranges. Dark toasted grains. Burnt caramel. Kumquats. Purple passionfruit. Juicy black plums. Chipoltes. Burnt grains. Peppercorns. Deep interesting stuff going on here. Not refined - but mind you still one of the best rye beers out there!

May not be giving it it’s due. Drinking from can and smoking a Rocky Patel Edge Lite Toro. Lighter in body than I would have expected and less Rye character than I wanted. A bit sour, but not the Rye sour. Stays true to Six Point’s resiny leanings. I could really see this as a hot day quencher if it was in the 4-5 range of ABV. All that said, I do like this beer and would definitely recommend. And I am becoming a fan of the can.

Pours a nice clear amber color with off-white head. Spice, rye, caramel malt, roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little rye spice. Very nice.
