Welcome! Tonight I am drinking another beer from Sixpoint Brewery out of Brooklyn, NY. I'm going to give my thoughts on their Righteous Ale. I first had this beer when Sixpoint first began to can their beers, but I haven't had it since. Sixpoint describes Righteous Ale as being "made with Rye malt to provide a signature and distinct earthy character. Seasoned and dry-hopped with herbal and citrus hops. Truly Righteous."
Righteous Ale pours dark red/brown with around a finger width sized off-white head. The smell of rye immediately jumps out at me as I raise the glass to my nose. The rye is mixed with a sweet caramel aroma. There is also a decent dosing of flowery and citrusy hops. Wow, my first sip from this beer, and I am floored by the rye in the flavor. Rye is the most prevalent flavor, and is backed up by a grapefruit like bitterness. The beer is medium bodied and average carbonation.
Overall: Fantastic beer. The rye in this beer is not subtle at all, and that's just how I like it. The hops add a nice bite, and just leave you wanting more!
Are you a fan of rye beers? What do you think of Sixpoint Righteous Ale? Let me know in the comments!
