COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earthy rye and piny hop flavor and aroma meet spicy, funky characteristics from our farmhouse yeast in this American-inspired farmhouse ale.

Note: This Farmhouse version replaced the original Wytchmaker Rye IPA when Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all beers. The original bottles feature a small Jester King sticker on the neck; newer bottles do not have this sticker and say "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

Bottle poured a clear deep golden hue w/ large rocky lasting white head and sticky lacing. Moderate farmhouse and floral aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold biter finish. Tastes are peppery rye, light horse blanket, piney hop, and faint apricot. Light bodied and lively carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2015 bottle. Pours a very slightly dark orange color with a light amount of carbonation. Aroma is sweet hops, floral in nature with a touch of rye notes. Aroma also has a sweet/sour quality with a bit of the farmhouse scent. Flavor is sweet, floral notes, candy sugar, and a bit of wildflower finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I preface this review by saying bottle is nearly 2yrs old. Aged 1 year by me and 1 year by erzbierschof. Aroma is strong yeast and piney herbal hops. Yeast aroma fades quickly and rye earthy gains notes come through. Pours hazy golden color with lots of head. Taste is well balanced first piney hops then complex grains followed by funky yeast. Not at all traditional but A really interesting complex ipa!

Serving: Bottle. Amber orange pour with a thin white head. Nice yeast, barnyard, and citrus notes in the nose. Zesty flavor with a nice bit of funk, a little citrus, and light spiciness. The rye adds a nice touch.

On tap at brewery. The bartender said this keg was pulled from 2012 stock, so I am hoping I am rating this under the correct place. Cool beer all around. Hazy orange color. Nose had funk and hops and rye in almost equally parts…extremely well balance I thought. Taste was more of the same with just slight tartness. Cool hybrid!
