COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rye IPA, brewed with honey, rye, and caramel malts, combines the spice of a rye with the sweet malt notes of honey. We added heaping amounts of Falconer’s Flight hops during the boil and then dry hopped it to create a citrusy IPA.

I hate to dis this beer, but it wasn’t very good, tasted like someone brewed it at home, and it was like their 2nd try. The pour was odd, overly carbonated, and there was just one thing that was off with the beer, I do think they are one step away from having a good beer, but this is not worht seeking out.

The rye balances this one out nicely. I would rate it as a good IPA for those summer days on the deck.

Bottle at home in CT - picked up at that package store near the Lee exit of the Mass Pike. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a large, frothy white head. Inviting aroma of melon, grapefruit and grass. Light sweet flavor with dry minerals, super dry pale malts, grapefruit pith. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Unsurprisingly this beer is very dry on the finish with further minerals, dried pale mats, straw and pithy citrus fruits. Pretty clean and refreshing thoughnlackingnin flavor somewhat.

Can courtesy of Ernesto! Appearance is badass pug on the blue can. Aroma is grapefruit, flowers, fresh cut grass and oranges. Taste is spicy rye and nice citrus hops. Overall surprisingly good.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2013 Tap offering courtesy toos just meow. Fine soft sweet kiwi fruit and soft rye spice. Super easy drink in. One might think the peculiar sweet fruit and spice combo is paint thinner. But this subtle clean paint thinner note actually drank just fine. This all probably makes no sense offered. But I found myself going back and forth between whether I was smelling or not smelling paint thinner. Ended up not caring as it wasn’t all that bad and was not offered in the taste. The taste was clean. Pallas date convension 2k14 here I com

Hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma floral hops. Medium body, lightly carbonated. Flavor slightly sweet up front, citrus hop finish. Not really getting anything from the rye, comes across as a generic IPA but decent enough.

Growler pour at the Beer Shop, East Longmeadow, MA during a meet the brewer event, 19/05/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is light grapefruit, hops, bitter orange, pine light, grass. Taste comprises orange pith, hops, grass, tropical fruits, citrus, touch of pine, caramel malt. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, crisp and clean in the finish. Good clean drinking IPA - decent.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White meringue head top hats and keeps coming. Tropical fruit, spicy rye and grapefruit aromas. Dry with pumpernickel and honey upfront turning to grapefruit in the lasting finish.
