HARPOON RICH & DAN’S RYE IPA
- Originally released as part of the 1OO Barrel Series to commemorate the brewery’s 25th anniversary, Harpoon is adding this beer to its year-round portfolio. The Rye IPA was brewed using Harpoon’s proprietary yeast, the same yeast strain that has been used at the brewery since the first batch of Harpoon Ale was brewed in 1987. The combination of Pale, Rye, Caramel 6O, Flaked Rye, and Vienna yields a complex malt body that stands up to the spiciness of the rye and the pronounced hop flavor. The rye also adds a reddish hue to the beer. The kettle additions of Centennial, Apollo, and Chinook, and the dry hop addition of Falconer’s Flight add a multidimensional hop character. This beer has a fruity, subtly spicy aroma, a full mouthfeel, and a dry finish. Available in 6-packs and on draft from Harpoon Distributing, Horizon Beverage Company, Atlas Distributing, Merrimack Valley Distributing, and Williams Distributing Corp.
