Turtle Anarchy Another Way to Rye
Too sweet. Very malt forward. Really have to search for the rye. Citrus and pine hop. Good head retention. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtle Anarchy Red Ale
Mostly an alright American red, caramel malt underlined by toasted grain followed by an intense piney hop bitterness. The honey seems unnecessary, though, adding a outsized sweet back end, overshadowing the mild berry and citrus notes on the beer’s finish. Clingy IBUs help shore up the honey-lined fade, but I’d love to try this beer without the adjuncts. Decent red pour, giving up a mild head and moderate lace. Creamy texture works, but does nothing to prevent the pint growing cloy as it warms. Okay brew.

Turtle Anarchy Portly Stout
Nice and dry roasty stout, full of bitter unsweetened chocolate and a healthy amount of char. Slight dark fruit notes take hold in the middle, but the finish is a long, java-heavy fade brimming with dark malt and smoke. Pretty brown-black pour with a modest head and minor lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Good texture. Not a bad pint.

Turtle Anarchy Another Way to Rye
Can from Craft Brewed. Pours a deep, clear brown with a soapy head that lingers. Plum, rye bread and piney hops dominate the nose. Very bitter on the palate, with some burnt caramel and more pine. Very dry and bitter finish. Not really my kind of rye ipa.

Turtle Anarchy Another Way to Rye
Can from Casual Pint. Pours out a thick, deep amber with a tall head. Grassy hops are in the aroma with very heavy rye. This is backed up by caramel notes and a distant soapiness. Mouthfeel is medium with pleasant carbonation. Tons of rye gives the flavor a satisfying hearty spice. Combined with the hops, it seems a tad metallic, but not bad. Citrus starts to come out in the finish.

Turtle Anarchy Another Way to Rye
By their very nature, hops can be pretty overwhelming. Sometimes that means that Rye IPA’s end up tasting like regular IPA’s. That’s not the case with Another Way to Rye. This orange-brown beer has a lot of grassy, spicy rye. The hops don’t get outdone by any means, though. There’s a lot of pithy citrus and earth. Long bitter finish. The rye and aggressive hops make this beer intense, but it’s still approachable. This is one of the better Tennessee beers I’ve gotten to try.

Turtle Anarchy Saison
Pint at Hops N Hollers. This is real cloudy for a saison with a cloudy yellow body and big white head. Aromas of pepper, pineapple juice, and grass. It’s on the dry end but lots of texture and body in the mouthfeel. Juicy pineapple and spicy esters throughout the flavor, even a bit of ginger and lemongrass Pretty nice.

Turtle Anarchy Ignorance is Abyss
Growler. Pours deep brown, almost black, with a half inch of spongy foam. Nose is muted a bit by the head, but is a pleasant enough mix of toffee and cocoa with a touch of char. Tastes of caramel, dark chocolate, salt and a hint of berry. Finish has some dark bread, acidic char and piquant green herb. Medium bodied with smooth low-medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Turtle Anarchy Another Way to Rye
Tingly and lingering like a good rye IPA should be, but the sweet malt center might be a little too heavy for its own good. Gets thick in the middle, a tad syrupy with a deep caramel vein, until the piney hop finish rouses all the loafers. Not bad, but could use a little more vitriol.

Turtle Anarchy Portly Stout
On tap at Siglers in Tennessee. Revisited about 9 months later with a 12 oz can. Excellent looking with a black body and a fine tan head. Nice lacing. Plenty of dark roasted grain flavor with a touch of smoke and a hint of black coffee. Lightly sweet up front but good bitter-sweet balance. Very smooth, full body. Medium carbonation.

Turtle Anarchy Hail the Pale
Decent but nondescript. Flat, grainy malts followed by a resinous pinetree hop finish. Not overly bitter, though, and the texture’s off.

Turtle Anarchy Red Ale
Draft. Red/amber pour with an off-white head. Subtle aroma, a bit of spicy hops and toasty malt. The flavor is crisp and hoppy with a bit of dryness in the finish. Good support comes from the malt without making it sweet. Surprisingly good for a style that is often boring and lackluster.
