We took a small portion of our regular Husker Red Rye and boiled the heck out of it and added more hops.  The result is a high-gravity Imperial Red Rye – nice spicy undertones from the 30% rye and loads of hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma from generous use of Centennial, Falconer’s Flight, and Zythos hops.  This one will sneak up on you, so beware!

Comes out of the tap a barely translucent mahogany with a thick and fine-bubbled pale wheat head. Malty aroma has some hoppy, rye and fruity hints. Flavor has a strong rye note plus fruity (mainly apple, some pear), woody hops and horehound notes. Smooth, fizzy texture leaves a sweet, malty and woody finish. This brewski is rye-ght on!

A furious pour leaves a rather attractive ale, clear dark copper with a lovelly eggshell/creme head thats large and creamy. very spicy hop aromas, with a good hint of fruitiness mmm tasty beer, its fully hopped ,yet very good malting mellows the raging hop a bit and leaves a nice fruity ,sweet beer, bitter finish. Very nice and smooth mouthfeel, makes avery drinkable ale for its strength. I liked this beer a lot

On tap at the brewpub for the anniversary. Much darker pour and a tan head. Full bodied kind of sweet. Hops ar a little more muted but still working a touch with grassiness on the finish. I think the regular version of this is a little better actually.
