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 Malts 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.

Can from Bruisin Ales. Pours hazy Amber/copper. Main aroma note is rye. Med body at least. Its not quite dry, mixed fruits, and a good dose of rye. Like rye. Its pretty bitter. Rye must help with that. Yummy stuff.

onceblind (8436) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Clear deep amber under a foamy sticky ivory head. Grainy doughy and earthy bitter nose with a bright leafy hop background. Big rye and leafy hoppy resiny flavor thats got a load of earthy and leafy American hop bitterness with a stern rye spicy touch and a bready background. Just kinda okay. Definitely not bad, its full and flavorful but its just a bit forgettable and not up my alley.

Can from Michael (misterburd); cheers, buddy! This is exactly what I want in my Rye IPAs -- its spicey, bitter, and with a great balance between the earthiness from the malts and a pine flavor from the hops.
