COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the upcoming nuptials of a Tröegs employee, Scratch #77 begins with the courtship of spicy rye malt and zesty Galaxy hops, then bonds the two in holy matrimony. This marriage of bold flavors captures the essence of a traditional IPA and the crisp, dry characteristics of rye. You’ll love and cherish every moment of this Rye IPA and make a vow to drink more. So raise a glass and make a toast to Scratch #77. “Here’s to hoping the honeymoon ain’t over anytime soon!”

orangesol (692) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Served on-tap at the Brewery. A - Pours slightly hazed copper orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty rings of lace down parts of the glass. S - Smells of juicy citric hops, spicy rye, bready malt, pine resin and some light tropical fruit. The fresh, fruity character goes a little dull toward the end of the glass, otherwise a really nice nose. T - Starts off with a big citric hop bite that never really fades away. Some chewy / spicy rye comes in mid palate; combining with hints of pine, fresh citric rind and some lightly toasted caramel malt; to help rein in the intense hops. Finish is quite hoppy with some light chewiness, lingering on the palate long after the finish. M - Medium-Full body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, slightly chewy feel with a ton of hop bite from start to finish. O - I am not the biggest fan of these rye hybrid beers but this one worked really well. The rye offers a nice break from the intense hop bitterness and helps keep things balanced. I am glad I got to try this one before it disappeared.
