COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double the malt, double the hops, and double the flavor of the original Rye Pale Ale recipe. (Hence the name Rye Squared.) With its mammoth hop aroma, bitterness and flavor, this beer is not for the faint at heart. The Rye Squared clocks in at a hefty 8.5% ABV so double your pleasure and double your fun because Terrapin went a little crazy with this one! The first keg of Rye Squared went on tap at Tasty World in Athens on Monday April 25th 2005. A special thank you goes out to the newly formed Terrapin Keg Killers. We were told that Tasty World would put the Rye Squared on as soon as they finished off a keg of a "Select" beer they had on tap. When the Terrapin Keg Killers heard about this they went to Tasty world and finished off that other keg in record time. By 10pm on Monday they were enjoying the fruits of their labor when the first ever Rye Squared keg went online. Malt: 2-row pale, Munich, Malted Rye, Bisuit Malt, Honey Malt. Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, East Kent Goldings, Fuggle, Magnum

Aroma of floral and grapefruit peel with just a hint of carroway. Appears dusty and amber. Tastes of Orange peel and alcohol with just a little cream. Delicious and big.

A: Imagine my name is Orange and I only like Red a little. Nice head with a stubborn retention. S: I really like the smell. Iím going to make an attempt at explaining it. Forget the malts. Iíve got hops out the wazoo! To make this short, I can create a case for each of these: herbal, perfumy, spicy, leafy, grassy, floral, piney and citrusy. T: After the smell was so good, this was disappointing. MF: Itís smooth, little bite. Not a lot of carbonation, especially compared to the head...meh... overall: Not quite encountered such a juxtaposed selection of attributes in a beer. I like it, but the taste is quite bland in my opinion.

An insanely delicious Double IPA. Extremely hoppy and slightly spicy in character. Mild alcohol flavor with intensity. But, great hop-malt balance.

That1Guy (1882) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2011
12 oz bottle crushed at the Rendesvous Restaurant & Beer Emporium in St. Augustine, FL. Golden orange pour with a sticky head. Aroma of big hops and rye. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Very hoppy but wonderfully balanced at the same time. A fantastic beer. Loved it.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2011
12 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a mostly clear golden-amber color with a thin off-white head that sticks around for most of the ride. The aroma is really fruity, with notes of melons, mango, berries, citrusy hops, rye, sweet caramel malts, and honey. Flavor of caramel malts, honey, rye, floral and citrusy hops, pine resin, and a lot of tropical fruits. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, almost chewy mouthfeel with a lot of underlying bitterness and rye spiciness. Really neat DIPA.

StefanSD (2068) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 8, 2011
12 oz bottle courtesy of Solan. Pours a translucent copper color with a small off-white head that slowly fades to a fine ring. The aroma is bi and bold with sweet and spicy rye, papaya and some muted grapefruit. The flavor, like the nose, is big and bold with biter fruits, of grapefruit, mango and papaya intermixed with some sweet wheat. Very nice. The palate is full and malty with lively carbonation. The finish is medium in duration with lingering spicy rye. Overall: This is one very nice DIPA.

Awesome IPA. This beer has great fruitiness to it and hits a great hoppy high note.

Trev (1868) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Dark gold pour with a foamy yellowish head. Aroma is piney hop, orange peel over caramel and rye malt. Definitely get that grainy rye in the flav. Bit of a syrupy booze flavor too. Caramel sweetness. And an orangey bitter finish.
