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.

rollinsr (412) - Atlanta, - JUL 12, 2013
Pours clear and brown with two fingers of tan head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus with bitter resin. Flavor begins bitter but then gradually acquires a sweet and nutty character. I can’t help but feel like this beer tastes somewhat watered down. I get several complexities but they are all very faint. The flavors that are there are good, they are just very faint, making this beer too plain for my palate.

Can. Light orange Amber, off white head. Aroma and flavour of sweet caramel, bready, a touch thin. Not getting much rye character here. A bit disappointing.

jflopsu (719) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours a hazy amber-brown. A grainy and rye aroma. Taste is full of malts of grain, rye, and some dark fruits. A dry aftertaste with some spices.

"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.
