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

This bottle is around ten months old. The age helps. Not the prettiest beer, but the aroma is heavy on the rye and malt, sweet yet giving off a few alcohol fumes as well. Tastes pretty darn good, full of orange and honeybun, yet with a rye tang that keeps things interesting, plus a strong hop finish that prevents the brew from growing too sweet. The heat rears its head as the beer warms, meaning that, while Rye Squared is tasty, it’s best enjoyed in small doses. (2/27/09)

Hops and lots of malt. This is a big beer with burnt caramel and sugar flavors.

Hops, rich bread malt, spice and citrus aroma on this hazy orange brew with a white head. Starts subtle and then hits you with tons of bitterness from a great deal of hops. Slight sweetness at the end and then the bitter lingers. I prefer the square root of this.

Bottle. Pours brown with an off-white head that does not fade. Aroma is floral/citrus hops, rye, resin. Flavor is slightly bitter with a big malty finish. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Really easy drinking DIPA.

GTAEgeek (2284) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at the Nook. The pour is dark orange with a large foamy, off-white head. The aroma is apples, citrus hops, some light resin and pine, and syrup. The flavor is intense, but pleasant bitterness, with a nice malt backbone. The palate is heavy, thick and creamy. Overall, a big, smooth and surprisingly drinkable IPA.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2011
Aroma of floral and grapefruit peel with just a hint of carroway. Appears dusty and amber. Tastes of Orange peel and alcohol with just a little cream. Delicious and big.

16 oz pours a orange amber color with a small white head. Aromas of rye, hops and citrus. Sticky mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish

phylomatic (3) - Trussville, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2011 does not count
A: Imagine my name is Orange and I only like Red a little. Nice head with a stubborn retention. S: I really like the smell. I’m going to make an attempt at explaining it. Forget the malts. I’ve got hops out the wazoo! To make this short, I can create a case for each of these: herbal, perfumy, spicy, leafy, grassy, floral, piney and citrusy. T: After the smell was so good, this was disappointing. MF: It’s smooth, little bite. Not a lot of carbonation, especially compared to the head...meh... overall: Not quite encountered such a juxtaposed selection of attributes in a beer. I like it, but the taste is quite bland in my opinion.

An insanely delicious Double IPA. Extremely hoppy and slightly spicy in character. Mild alcohol flavor with intensity. But, great hop-malt balance.

That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2011
12 oz bottle crushed at the Rendesvous Restaurant & Beer Emporium in St. Augustine, FL. Golden orange pour with a sticky head. Aroma of big hops and rye. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Very hoppy but wonderfully balanced at the same time. A fantastic beer. Loved it.
