COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The harvest lingers on, the blade still sharp. Weathered and beaten through seasons of wear, the Scythe has our trust when the field grows high. The beacon of utility, our rye india pale ale touches across the vital tenets of beer balance not by muting flavors, but by elevating them. A European crystal malt backbone is lifted by the drying herbal pop of Riverbend Malt’s Wrens Abruzzi Rye. “C” hops provide a grapefruit finish that remains curtained by the powerful aroma of blueberry & fresh pineapple, thanks to an exclusive Mosaic dry-hopping. Finish your work, wipe your brow, and reap this delicious reward.

NOTE: All beers labeled as Scythe go under this name.

On tap at Underground. Pours a hazed amber with some darkened orange tones and a medium sized white head. Spicy rye on the nose, a bit of greenness, melon and citrus. Medium bodied, quite green, bordering on vegetal and onion tones. Green follows through into the finish, lingering onion tones.

Lightly hazy copper pour with an off white head and tons of sticky lacing. Strong pineapple, rye, and citrus aroma. Taste is citrus rind, pineapple, spicy rye, pine, and toffee. Mild lingering bitterness. Finishes dry. Medium body. Really nice rye IPA.

About as heavy on the rye as a rye IPA can be. Nose is a mixture of dry rye spiciness and an underlying earthy hop base. Lovely pour, coming out a hazy orange-brown with a moderate beige head and ample lace. Taste combines rye, orange, berry, caramel, rye, toasted grain, tropical fruits, rye, black pepper, rye, pine, rye, and rye. Finish is both earthy and spicy, with a grainy undertone that pads the moderate IBUs on the fade. Complexity keeps blossoming as the pint warms, and the texture is pitch-perfect for an IPA, creamy yet boisterous enough to keep the bitterness from growing dominant. The more I drink, the higher my rating gets. Could be the alcohol. Could be this is a great IPA. Yum.

Draft at source. Lightly hoppy, caramel, and pepper dominate the aromas and flavors. Semisweet mouthfeel. Aight

Type: 16-oz. can Glass: Clear 16.5-oz. Belgian ale tulip From: My friend, Jay Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received March 10, 2017 Consumed: March 18, 2017 Reviewed as: American IPA Misc.: Canned on Feb. 23, 2017 Thanks, Jay! Was lucky enough to receive this as part of a 10-beer package sent by Jay. I believe I had heard of this brewery before, but not 100 percent sure. Usually hit and miss on rye IPAs, hoping this one is a hit. Poured a copper amber clear color with five fingers of rocky khaki head. Just a few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, like 1-or-2 few. Excellent spiderweb foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled that rye spice up front, along with Mosaic, Citra, red grapefruit, pineapple, dry orange peel, toasty grain, caramel and lightly roasted nuts. Getting that rye spice lingering on the nose, making me thing there were more hops. Leaning toward Chinook or Simcoe, and maybe even Centennial. Will try to narrow it down on the taste. Really nice mix of hops and spices. (Smell - 4.00) Taste followed the nose, getting the mix of hops up front and rye spices at the end. Specifically got Mosaic, Citra, sharp grapefruit, pineapple, orange pulp, blueberry, floral, spicy hops (still leaning toward Chinook or Simcoe, but not Amarillo), lightly toasted grain, caramel malts, herbal, hints of green vegetables and bitter earthy notes. (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, spicy finish. (Feel - 4.00) Just a very good rye IPA. Would recommend it for sure. (Overall - 4.00) 4.02 90 A-

bhensonb (15500) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Can from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours hazy Amber/copper. Main aroma note is rye. Med body at least. It’s not quite dry, mixed fruits, and a good dose of rye. Like rye. It’s pretty bitter. Rye must help with that. Yummy stuff.

Can shared by bhensonb. Pours amber with a thick beige head and a fruity rye aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a bitter earthy finish. Nicely constructed.
