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.

Rich amber color. Has a nice aroma of sweet citrus fruit, and pine. The flavor is a wonderful mix of tangy IPA, sweet citrus, sweet malty caramel, tart fruit, and spicy rye. It has a fantastic balance and is a great beer.

Nice aroma pours an orange hue , smells like orange and rather sweet. Taste is good citrusy and mild rye. Mouthfeel is not very full but would not turn it down. Would like to try it on draft .

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is predominantly a roasted grain and rye with a caramel touch. There?s also a bit of pine and herb in there as well. It pours a clear honey yellow-brown color with a foamy, fluffy, pillowy soft, small-bubbled white head. It retains quite a bit of the head leaving a good medium-thick fluffy ring, an abundant, cloudy surface coverage, and a near sheet-like messy lacing. It?s a highly bitter beer with a mellow, malty, medium sweetness. The soft, creamy carbonation combined with the syrupy smooth texture to give this beer an overall slick and creamy feel. The full body finishes with a dry caramel, roasted grain, and pine with a touch of citrus sweetness.A gritty, resin aftertaste is left behind with additional notes of toasted rye. It?s a strong aftertaste that has a lingering quality.

Huge thanks to MatSciGuy for bringing this! Poured a golden body with a medium sized, lasting white head. Citric hoppy aroma, notes of orange, light alcohol, candyish. Seems it lost some aroma on the trip, but still not that bad. Herbal, strong bitter taste, some melon, light alcohol again (?), orange, slightly sweetish, slightly too thin. Lovely strong bitter aftertaste... interesting beer, hope to try it fresh one day to rearate.

The Rye of the Tiger pours a mostly clear light golden yellow with a foamy beige head that lasts a long while. The aroma is citrus, pine and rye. The flavor is also citrus, pine and rye although the rye shines through a bit more in the flavor. Overall this is a solid brew. I’ll have another please.

OK so the name is cheesy, but this is a solid American IPA. A medium body for an IPA anD plenty of flavor. It stays crisp and hoppy on the front end and fades rather quickly to a crisp finish. This has all the flavor of an imperial IPA but doesn’t linger. Nice touch.
