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.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. Has a lot of lacing. Has some solid rye notes on the nose. Has some decent citrus on the tongue along with some of that rye spiciness. Finishes clean. Not bad.

haddon90 (1449) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color. Strong hoppy aroma with the rye lingering. Nice, smooth hoppy taste. Good rye bite in the finish. Real solid IPA.

Bottle. Clear amber with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is bitter with notes of apricot and peach. Taste adds some caramel malt, spicy rye and a little alcohol. Rich mouthfeel and moderate carb. Not bad.

scotchzombie (325) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours a hazed butterscotch orange amber with a creamy white head that fades somewhat quickly to a thick rim and light coating. Aroma is semi-sweet caramel malt and rye grains with a touch of mango. Taste is strongly rye malts into grapefruit citrus and bitter floral hops. Aftertaste teases caramel malt but bitterness predominates. Spicy and a bit sticky. A high quality variation of the style.

GIJOE (619) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Amber pour with a creamy, white head. Sparse, but sticky lacing. Nose is malty with a strong citrusy hop component. Taste is moderately bitter. Full-bodied, delicious brew with lively carbonation and a long grapefruit finish. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gsmitty80 (1794) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Good big rye that has nice flavor but it is a very heavy mouth and stickiness. Not much aroma or hopiness but enjoyable for a GL. In line with much of what else they do.

Shot (129) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2014
From a bottle. Pours golden with a two-inch head. Good lacing. Aromas are bitter grapefruit, pine needles, and floral hops. Flavors are bitter citrus, pine, sweet dried apricot, and herbs. Finishes with lemon peel and sweet malt with a lingering hop bite. Smooth, creamy, somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Very nice IPA.

zizzybalubba (1407) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Triangle), Raleigh, NC (best before June 24, 2014). Deep orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with a healthy amount of rye. The rye also is at the forefront of the taste lending plenty in the way of sweetness and nearly overshadowing the grassy and tangerine hops. Medium bodied. A good IPA but a bit sweet for my tastes.

Nice bready and hoppy flavor. Drank out of bottle barbecuing. Lots of carbonation and good hops/rye balance.

redbeard3 (107) - - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle into a shaker pint. Aroma is unique simcoe smell that is hard to describe- piney and resinous citrus rind. Appearance is golden with nice white head. Taste is spicy rye that competes a bit on the palate with the spicy and piney hops.
