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.

Kinz (3361) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at Great Lakes Brewing in the Cleveland Airport. Poured a medium amber, hint of orange, clear, good head. Aroma was slightly spicy peppery and citric hops. Flavor had a decent malt backbone, lightly caramel, some peppery notes presumably from the rye, and then a nicely balanced hop finish that was citric and pine oriented. Good stuff.

GreatDane1632 (561) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Got in a trade from Local beer swap. Pours a nice copper with small head. Slight malty flavor, spritzy malt/hop combination that is slightly weird.

ICEatALAMO (990) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a bright orange, not too hazy. The aroma is only slightly hoppy, more rye overall. The taste is fairly mild. Vastly different from an ipa, especially since I just had one before this. Was expecting more hops for sure. Only so slightly bitter.

BMMillsy (1512) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2014
On draft at Diamond Market. Pours to the pint glass clear golden orange with a small creamy white head on top. Aroma is sweet malts, orange rinds, honey. Flavor is orange rinds, light hop grapefruit bitter, tiny hints of rye spice, and a very sweet sweet malt presence that dominates. Medium plus mouthfeel, slick, nearly syrupy, with medium low carbonation. Decent beer but disappointing by GL standards. Wonder if this is an old keg.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade and caramel malt. Body is full and crisp. Citrusy hops dominate the palate, while caramel malt and ripe fruit provide some support. Finish is long, dry and spicy. Excellent brew.

My favorite beer of all time. I love Rye and along with a strong complex, hop flavor it has everything I want in a beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3524) - Lewisburg, 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 (1490) - 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.

conway (1621) - - MAY 25, 2014
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 (364) - 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.
