Aumoe RyePA

Named Aumoe (pronounced “ow moy”) after the Hawaiian word for midnight, this Black Rye IPA combines the subtle spice and body of malted rye with bright pine and resiny centennial hop aroma. We use a malt called Midnight Wheat to provide the dark hue of this beer, but with only the slightest hint of roasted flavors.
