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.

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.

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.

ContemplateBeer (1496) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Aroma: Mango hits you first, but is quickly followed by a moderate rye presence that is semi-sweet. Appearance: Nice, rich copper color with a bone colored head that settles into a bubbly ring, carbonation looks spot-on. Flavor: Rye/a little grapefruit up front with the grapefruit biting a bit more than the rye; not as much mango/tropical fruit noticeable as in the nose- maybe a touch toward the finish, if any. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A very well-made beer in the GL vein, but never went to the next level for me.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear orange amber, thick white head cover, lots of lace streaks. Taste is marvelous: caramel malt that allows pronounced citrus hops to enter early and share the stage. Both sides sashay 50-50 to a smooth lingering finish. What I imagine any good IPA ought to be. Good stuff.

brigg (499) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, light amber body, small off-white head, slow stream of rising bubbles. Aroma of hop, grain, tropical fruit, earthy malt. Medium body, sticky. Moderate bitterness and sweetness; bread, citrus, light spice. Very drinkable.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
I’m liking the rye-PA trend more and more. I think the grain really works well for the style - the intense grain aromas of the rye work well to counterbalance the intense hops for style. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Smells citrusy and has a good rye malt backbone. Finishes medium bitter with some citrus sourness. Tap at Circa.

BREWMUSKCLES (2192) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2014
funky broom straw type balance to this otherwise bright and powerful enough ipa with flowery citrus sufficiently harsh and finishing in an aggressive enough rye. a bit of sweetness as appropriate to make that brightness and bring out a bit of tangerine.

Bacterial (1376) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Golden amber pour with a white head, white lacing. Nose is bright and floral hops. Taste is clean, lots of hops with a strong hop bitterness in the finish. Solid.

Bottle into a DFH Ale IPA glass -- *Disclaimer- I accidently opened this up when I reached for a different IPA that I had been drinking. Its my only one so I’m rating it*-- Pours a light cloudy golden color with a thick head. Can’t place the aroma, some say spicy, maybe. Head seems to stick around. Taste follows aroma whatever it was. There is some hoppyness but overall it seems pretty smooth. Not a whole lot of bitterness until the aftertaste and that is minimal. I wish I hadn’t corrupted this beer by drinking a different IPA before it because this seems to be pretty good.
