612 Brew is a brewery in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 612 is the area code for Minneapolis. This rye India Pale Ale has 6.9% ABV and 80 IBU's. It used to be called Rated R,but apparently the movie picture association responsible for issuing the movie ratings didn't take too kindly to that, and they were forced to rename.
The beer pours a dull, dark amber and copper in color. There is over an inch of off-white head, thick, and somewhat creamy. The aroma is fruity, berries and dark stone fruits, spicy rye, with a touch of pine and Double Bubble gum. The taste follows the aromas, finishing spicy, dry, and bitter. The beer drinks smooth with a tingle of carbonation.
