COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This kitty has claws. Named for its one-two punch of fierce hops and sharp rye content,our Rye of the Tiger India Pale Ale is a thrilling ale with bite, handcrafted for the fighter in all of us. Like tigers creeping through tall grass, hopheads will stalk this majestic golden brew, rising to the challenge of its bold flavor attack. Full-bodied and loaded with hops, our Rye of the Tiger IPA is brewed with rye malt, adding a spicy complexity to every sip. It’s an ale meant to inspire feats of strength and skill, a worthy contender in the bout against the flavorless. If you can step into the ring with this hopped-up cat, you’ve earned your stripes.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney and citric hops, a bit stale, with some rye spiciness and a bit of malt. Flavor has some chewy malt, sweetish and a bit caramelly, fruity notes, strong bitterness with piney and slightly grapefruity hops, a bit stale, and some spicy rye notes. Medium-bodied. Decent, but past its prime.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium sized white head. Aroma of sweet malts and a very slight amount of rye. Flavor of citrus and herbal hops with a fair amount of rye and bread.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JUL 27, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Slightly hazy amber color with a decent white head. Aroma of honey and stale hops, beer is obviously too old with only faint citrus and piney aromas. Citrus peel flavor, some juicy light caramel malts, marmalade, faint spicy rye and hi bitterness. Medium bodied, pretty quaffable, but lacks freshness. Could be great when fresh.

blankboy (6400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is bready, hoppy and herbal along with some rye, fruit, light vegetal notes and Flavour is also bready and hoppy with some rye coming through, some grain, citrus, a touch of alcohol and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Enjoyable stuff.

j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Before I even open this and pour it, it picks up an extra +1 to overall solely for the name being awesome. Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a thin white head. Malty and sweet, a bit of rye with some slow citrus hops and caramel. Medium bodied, spicy citrus. Big grapefruit and pungent quinine and earthiness on the finish. Didn’t quite live up to the great name it has, but still a decent enough rye ipa.

Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Fruity hops, light rye malts, toffee, and citrus. Solid bright hoppy finish. Good stuff.

dmac (4431) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2013
12oz bottle (one month past the best by date to the day) from Canal’s Fire Rd. Poured a hazy honey orange body with a frothy smaller mostly white head. Aroma of bready sweetness, rye notes, citrusy, orange slices, sweet grains some molasses as well. Nice body that finishes slightly dry with a touch of spice and bitterness. Flavor of dry hop cones, rye toast, some dough sweetness and a bitter citrus rind finish.

A mild ryePA. Nothing here is big - not the hops, not the rye - but it comes together nicely enough. Far from best in class though.

In short: A caramelized rye beer with a good citrusy hopping. Very good.
How: A few 12oz bottles shared by friends at a tasting, probably fresh.
The look: Clear darfk golden body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is clean and bright rye and citrus fruits. Taste has a good fresh rye presence with its usual intrinsic spiciness. Some caramel. A generous hopping that is predominantly citrus fruits. Obviously plays in the same territory as the classic Founders Red Rye, a little less rye-forward and less hop-forward as the Red Rye, kind of a lower intensity version of the Red Rye. I liked it a lot. Another rating, and I have become so proficient with this whole ratebeer thing that I am now riding my bike with no hands while using my smartphone to upload this rat

Bottle @ home, courtesy of my Secret Santa. Thanks! Best by 6/18/13. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a khaki head. Slightly spicy, a bit bready, herbal, lightly fruity flavor. Mild grapefruit citrusy, chewy bready, lightly toasted malty, slightly spicy flavor. Definitely a bit old.
