Vinyl Tap is a limited release Rye Pale Ale brewed in honor of National Record Store Day. This unique brew is composed above the foundation of a classic American Pale Ale, with Pale and Munich malts providing the bass and notes of biscuit, honey, and spicy rye malt filling in the harmony. Topped off with the lyrical melody of citrus and pine from a blend of 4 American hop varieties, Vinyl Tap is music to your mouth. This beer also comes with a dose of good Karma, because 10% of all profits from Vinyl Tap will go toward supporting local arts and music in the community. Additionally, Landlocked Music and Upland are partnering up to raise some moolah. 10% of all Vinyl Tap Sales as well as donations received at the RSD parties and part of Landlockedís RSD sales will be given back to support local arts and music in the community. Boom! Canít wait to hear your feedback on the beer and canít wait to see you our supporting your local record stores!

DrSilverworm (8540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at Dutchís. Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Good light piney hop, some citrus, nice biscuity malt, and light rye spiciness. Super smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of crisp. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Flavor is kind of mild, but this is a very easy-drinking rye IPA.

Draft @ Indy location. Very light nondescript malt aroma. Hazy light amber with a moderate off-white head. Musty orange, biscuity caramel malt, and earthy fruity hops flavor. Medium body, soft cabonation.

Block (1706) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2014
Smooth and silky with a great hop and malt balance. Hops in the nose and initial flavor. The beer finishes sweet and smooth. Went down easy after a long bike ride.

Patrickctenchi (4806) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2014
Draft: Slightly cloudy, yellow-orange with a small, off-white head. Tangerine/orange aroma. Taste is orange, grain malt, leafy hops...I didnít really get a sense of the rye, Itís ok, but rather lackluster.

b3shine (6570) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild hops and pale malt with a bit more rye spice. Tastes like it smells, but blander, at least in terms of the hops and rye. Average on palate. Smells better than it tastes.

Draft. Tangerine malt and peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Light - not much rye flavor though.
