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.

One of my favorite all day drinking beers. Lots of hops without the bitterness. Tons of malt without the sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Summit not nearly as present as before, but well replaced by Mosaic. Loving this beer as an everyday drinker around 6.5%. Great job. Could use a touch more rye, though it is ever apparent here

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

Can from Bruisin’ Ales. Spicy resin and caramel aroma. Tasty citrus and resin taste with a spicy bitter finish. Very good.

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.

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.

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.

bubbleflubber (2231) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2013
On draught at the brewery, this pours the deepest amber, with a sudsy head and lacing. The nose is vegetal and savory. Flavors of definitive rye and butter (without diacetyl alcohol), making an almost savory brew that would pair perfectly with burgers. And I mean perfectly. The full body accompanies a complex, substantive palate. Very nice and interesting rye here. You know, after talking to the brewer about all of the unique "takes" on traditional styles they do, I am becoming a real fan.... quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tap at the source. Cool little place with nice people. even picked up a sweet zip up hoodie! This was my favorite beer at Burial. What a shocker than it happened to be an IPA-like beer, though I found all of their beers to be more than solid. Citrusy, tropical fruits abound with a good dose of slightly spicy rye.

SpringsLicker (3660) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2014
2014 RBWG At the brewery’s tasting room. Red-tinged body with a white head. Aroma of piney hops. The flavor is moderately bitter. Fruity and citrusy.
