Profile: Red Rye Ale fermented with a strain of Brettanomyces which creates clean tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Hopped with Amarillo and Galaxy hops,  which add flavors of tangerine, citrus, and tropical fruit. Mild spice and grain notes from the rye malt. Dry finish with moderate hop bitterness and light tartness.
