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.

Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Massive rye notes on the nose. Massive spicy rye on the tongue combined nicely with some grapefruit style hops which are quite flavorful. Finished clean. Nice example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cobaink2 (480) - seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Can from tasty beverage Raleigh. Pretty large head when poured. Light copper color. Nice beer but a bit different than expected. More of a melon hop forward taste with just a hint of rye on the very backend. As an IPA it is quite good. Tasted of melon, Meyer lemons and a bit of an herb somewhere in there. Tasty for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
