It’s back to work for me today. I’m hoping vacation offered some time to relax before I get into the grind of work again. I also hope that I got to try some really good beers while I was up there as well. This beer is one that I’ve seen on a couple of beer blogs, especially in the New York area. They don’t distribute to New Jersey yet, so I picked this one up last time I went to Half Time. There were only a few left on the shelves. Let’s see how it went.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery, “With the addition of Rye Malt from Hillrock Farm Distillery, this balanced Rye India Pale Ale was born in Columbia County. Taste what this county has to offer!”
Random: I can’t wait until football starts. I have been in withdrawal.
The beer poured with a one finger, cream colored head that dissipated quickly and left lots of lacing on the pint glass. The body was lightly cloudy and a mahogany color with light carbonation. The nose had some spicy rye and floral hops. The taste had a bit more body with the same grassy and floral hops. There was also spiciness from the rye and some light sweetness from the malt. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. It had a long finish with rye spice and flowers. This was $2.50 for the tallboy can ($.16 per ounce). This was a really nice beer and I really enjoyed the spiciness that the rye offered.
