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.

Leighton (22836) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear orange-gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds citrus fruits and dried bread. Medium sweet flavor with notes of orange, grainy bread, light sticky pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately resinous on the finish, with notes of sweet bready malts, rye grains, pine and ripe orange. Good one.

DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2015
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

jhliesen (836) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Can--pours a deep amber color with a medium, off white, frothy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma mostly of wet pine with lemon, the aroma was fresh like you would find in a brewery. The taste starts with the hops and follows with malt and some spice on the end. Moderate bitterness on the finish. Bruisin Ales

cobaink2 (847) - 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
