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

15th September 2008. Clear brown beeer -sweet spicy start, a spciy mid and a semi dry finish that is very warming. A bit different - this DIPA is more spicy than hoppy. Interesting!

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy, orange body with a small beige head. Really malty and hoppy with sugary and malty sweetness, as well as lots of pine and resin. I’m thinking rye as well, but not sure if that’s because of the beer’s name. Full-bodied, sticky sweet in the mouth with lots of sugary maltyness and enough pine and resin to make it balanced. The alcohol is well hidden, making it a dangerous beer, as it’s quaffable as hell. A beauty of a kind we’re sure missing in Norway. (080626)
