This beer is brewed with our proprietary yeast – the same yeast we’ve used since first brewing Harpoon Ale – and some interesting hop varieties. The combination of Pale, Rye, Caramel 60, Flaked Rye, and Vienna yield a complex malt body that stands up to the spiciness of the rye and the pronounced hop flavor. The rye also adds a reddish hue to the beer. The kettle additions of Centennial, Apollo, and Chinook, and the dry hop addition of Falconer’s Flight add a multidimensional hop character.
Huge hop aroma came billowing from the bottle upon cracking it open. Beautiful orange color with 2 finger head and lacing. Fantastic rye spicy taste along with the floral/citrus hops. A bit bitey, but amazing. It shocked me just how great this beer is.
