Turtle Anarchy Another Way to Rye
By their very nature, hops can be pretty overwhelming. Sometimes that means that Rye IPAís end up tasting like regular IPAís. Thatís not the case with Another Way to Rye. This orange-brown beer has a lot of grassy, spicy rye. The hops donít get outdone by any means, though. Thereís a lot of pithy citrus and earth. Long bitter finish. The rye and aggressive hops make this beer intense, but itís still approachable. This is one of the better Tennessee beers Iíve 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. Itís 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 Hail the Pale
Decent but nondescript. Flat, grainy malts followed by a resinous pinetree hop finish. Not overly bitter, though, and the textureís 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.

>> Deep red to black color with healthy foam and lace. Nose is pretty nice wet tobacco and sharper roasted malt. Flavor has some of that roasted malt derived acidity, grilled lemon, solid body with great balance. Dry and nicely bitter. Overall solid.

Turtle Anarchy Portly Stout
Turtle Anarchy's flagship brew lies somewhere between a porter and a stout (the name makes sense). Rich, porter flavors with a bit of a stout-like mouth feel. The aroma is welcoming, and a bit warming. Nice brownish head and good lacing. All in all a very nice beer.
