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

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Wow this was freaking awesome! A deep orange appearance with litte head. A big aroma of oranges, perfume, and citrus. The flavor is rather sweet but not overly so. The flavor is orange peels, grapefruit, caramel, vanilla, tangerines. Extremely complex and I was floored by how good this really was. Terrapin is the East Coasts answer to the big West Coast breweries.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Re Rate - A little too caramel-dominated this time around. Still good, though. Sampled with Jeffin7. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a thick off-white head. Plenty of hops in the nose along with caramel and rye. Flavor has more notes of caramel and rye with grapefruit, pine and resin. Moderately sweet, pleasantly bitter and dry finish. Alcohol content very well-hidden. Medium body with subtle carbonation. Good head retention. Really good stuff, would like to have more of this.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Hand Bottled by Beeryum: Pours redish amber with a medium head that fades to a small bit solid head. Aroma is of citusy and resiny hops, caramel and a slight rye. Flavor is at first a mix of citrus and slight piney hops. Flavor is caramel mixed with slightly biscuit malt with strong but fairly balanced citrus and piney hops, slightly dry slightly spice rye bread . Palate is medium. Drinkable but flavorful IIPA.

Nice looking golden double IPA with heavy hoppy aroma and heavy duty malty flavor. I like the additional flavor the malted rye brings to this double IPA. I sampled the same hand bottled beer as PWalk.

PorterPounder (7330) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Had on tap at 5 Seasons, same recipe as the Rye PA but double fermented. Has a very fresh hoppy, floral, citrusy aroma. Medium copper appearance with a creamy frothy, bubbly head and good, thick lacing. Very crisp clean fruity, hoppy flavor - but not distracting with too much Cascades. Has a touch of caramel in there as well. Very clean, wholesome mouthfeel, wakens your tastebuds.

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Poured a hazy, orange red color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus fruits, sweet toffee malts, maybe even some nuts? Lots of spicy, citrus fruit, some bubblegum, light rye and sweet malts, with bitter grapefruit hops, and alcohol in the finish. Really nice beer!

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Hand bottled sample courtesy hopdog via beeryum:Aroma is that of hops, pine and citrus with a good amout of rye in there as well. Flavor is much the same with more of the malt coming throuhg in the end. Very drinkable beer that hides the alcohol under the blanket well.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Hand bottled sample courtesy of beeryum. Poured a darker reddish/amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus (oranges), light pine, rye and some malts. Tastes of pine, caramel, lime, rye bread and light grapefruit. Definite nice rye presence in the aromas and tastes which is a nice change to the IIPAs I’ve had lately. Nice sweet balance to the hoppy presence. Alcohol content well hidden.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2006 Double yum! Plenty of malt, hops, and rye aroma and flavor. The maltiness reallys adds a n unique flavor to this beer. One of the most unique and best DIPA I’ve ever had.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Tap: Poured a hazy golden orange with minimal off white head. Big hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, and sweet oranges. Sweet malt underneath the hops. Hops carry through to the flavor with some fruit. Finish is sweet with a mild to moderate bitterness. Medium body and warming sensation.
