"Brewed Exclusively for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week. We like to experiment. Of course, every experiment needs to be tested, right? So how better to test a beer than to drink it? You’ve got it– there is no better way! Pittsburgh is a great city, and you’re a big market for us. We thought we would thank you by trying out a new recipe for a beer we’ll release this fall. Pittsburgh Left is brewed exclusively for your beer week, and is a double rye ale. At 8.0% abv, we used 2 varieties of hops and 4 types of malts on this one. Expect medium bitterness."

Draft at Bocktown Grill Robinson. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. There’s a few rye notes on the nose. Big, big rye on the tongue with a hint of floral hops. Finishes clean. Nice!

Poured at coles Southern tier tasting at coles. Pours a copper with a light white head with barely any lacing. Smells fruity and hoppy with some pine. Tastes hot with hops, malt, and some pepper heat, rye. Some booze heat in the finish, mild bitter aftertaste.

Growler from brewery, copper orange pour. Light lacing. Citrus hop nose with big dose of caramel maltiness. Citrus bitterness, good flavor. Not overly bitter, malty backbone. Thanks to the Farrels

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a small foamy orange-beige head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy grapefruit and pine. The flavor was bitter and somewhat tangy with moderate grapefruit, light pineapple and pine notes. Medium length tangy grapefruit and pine finish. Moderately full bodied. Tasty.

On tap at Beermuda. Pours a pale orange-red. Thin white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. Leaves a full lacing down the glass. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one poured a lighter brown color with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of rye, and citric and herbal spicey hops, fairly inviting. Flavor was more hoppy and gave me a better thought of the style of rye IPAS overall. Certainly worth trying again.

Draught at Beermuda during PCBW. Poured golden yellow with nice head. Pleasant sweet hoppy aromas. Light grapefruit taste. Quite smooth.
