COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double the malt, double the hops, and double the flavor of the original Rye Pale Ale recipe. (Hence the name Rye Squared.) With its mammoth hop aroma, bitterness and flavor, this beer is not for the faint at heart. The Rye Squared clocks in at a hefty 8.5% ABV so double your pleasure and double your fun because Terrapin went a little crazy with this one! The first keg of Rye Squared went on tap at Tasty World in Athens on Monday April 25th 2005. A special thank you goes out to the newly formed Terrapin Keg Killers. We were told that Tasty World would put the Rye Squared on as soon as they finished off a keg of a "Select" beer they had on tap. When the Terrapin Keg Killers heard about this they went to Tasty world and finished off that other keg in record time. By 10pm on Monday they were enjoying the fruits of their labor when the first ever Rye Squared keg went online. Malt: 2-row pale, Munich, Malted Rye, Bisuit Malt, Honey Malt. Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, East Kent Goldings, Fuggle, Magnum

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 I really want to get laid tonight so I’m gonna run to the bar. the bar is far, I love vag. EDIT: Heavy rye flavors here, unfortunately I was "slightly" drunk, fortunately the evening was a success, the only failure really is the improper rating of this beer. Will have to retry to be fair.

12 oz bottle from smith4498. Pours a clear bronze with a thin white head. Aroma is loads of rye and caramel. Very sweet smelling, somewhat earthy with a note of floral hops and honey. Taste is sweet at first, but has a pronounced hop kick. Sweet honey, rye, caramel, toffee, bread, followed by floral and slightly citrusy hops. The rye leaves an almost spicy aftertaste. Alcohol is not at all noticeable. Mouthfeel is sturdy, and perfectly carbonated. Fantastic. I love rye beers. Not quite as hoppy as Hop Rod Rye, but definitely in the same league as far has imperial rye ales go. Thanks Jason.

Pours amber into the glass, with a spotty head that leaves webbed lacing. The nose is of floral notes and candied citrus. The flavors are lots of candied oranges, huge caramel malts, some rind/peel notes and citrus. The finish is a tad alcoholic, with peppering bitters, dry rye notes, citrus zest and some alcohol burn. Good Impy IPA, but a bit less rye and bitters than I was expecting, based on "double" the feel of the original. Still, not a bad IIPA at all. Complex, with a slick, oily mouthfeel that contains a substantial palate. Nice offering for a nightcap here.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 18, 2011
THOUGHTS: Not overly bitter. Very easy to drink. Hid alcohol fairly well. Very smooth. Lots of hop flavor without being overly bitter. Probably more sweet than bitter, but definitely well made. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured clear, light to medium amber with an small to average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy caramel and candy; moderate to heavy resin and orange hops; alcohol; spicy rye; and tropical fruit. The initial flavor was rather sweet and moderately bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, spicy rye, pine hops, a little tropical fruit, orange hops, candy, sugar, toffee, brown sugar and alcohol. The medium to full body was fairly oily, but sticky on the lips and then a little dry with soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish.

Bottle. Poured a copper color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was a strong maltly one, with citrus hops. Flavor was citrus hops, rye with solid malt backing. Alcohol is covered up real well.

3.1
bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle. Hazy copper with small white head. Aromas of caramel, herbs, toast, citrus. Flavors of caramel, biscuit, cherry, herbs. Alcoholic and medicinal finish. Sweet, cloying finish. Full body with sticky mouthfeel and moderate-low carbonation. Too sweet and no dry, spicy rye character.
