Introducing the newest beer in our already impressive line up: Through Hiker Double Rye P.A. At a time when most breweries are scaling back hop usage due to price and limited availability, we’ve gone to the complete opposite end of the spectrum with Through Hiker! This unfiltered behemoth is loaded with American Cascade and Centennial hops in the boil and over THREE POUNDS of Cascade in the hop percolator! As if that weren’t enough, we dry-hopped Through Hiker in the fermenter with even more Cascade hops! What does all this mean? 56 IBU’s is what it means. At 13.5 Lovibond, Through Hiker is Amber in color with a slightly reddish hue due to the addition of Crystal malt and the ample addition of Cara-Pils malt. A full 20% of the grain bill consists of Weyermanns Rye malt which adds a spicy, full, viscous mouthfeel to the beer. Our total grain bill weighed out at just over 450 lbs. which adds up to 7.9% abv. so please drink responsibly, lamp shades on the head are SO yesterday...We’ll be rolling out the red carpet for Through Hiker on Monday August 18th and it will only be available on site at the Woodstock Inn, Station and Brewery!

From the bottle. Dec 2014 expiration date. Now in bottle. The pour is a slightly murky looking pale yellow-bronze with a white foamy head that stays around and leaves a lot of lacing. Rye grain, toasted malts, earthy hops and overripe fruit are on the nose. Better than medium body. Same grainy flavor that the nose suggests with a moderately lingering bitterness hanging on at the very end. Topnotch? Not really. But quite drinkable.

MadRobin (2658) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Labeled as "Thru Hiker Rye P.A.." Cloudy, amber-copper with fine 4-finger buff colored head that lingers gracefully and eventually leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, forest duff, rye and malt. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, earthy pine, rye and caramel. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 14, 2009
On cask at the brewpub. Pours reddish copper with a generous tan head. Smells of rye bread, some pepper, light sweet citrus, earthy. Tastes bitter and pepery with an earthy compliment and a semi sweet finish.
