3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into snifter glass. Hazy yellow-ish copper color with white head. Aroma of fruity/piney hops, caramel malt and rye spiciness. Taste for me really brings out hop flavors (vs just bitterness), the rye either enhances it or just plays a minimal role. Medium body, average carbonation, balanced, only slightly bitter with dry finish. Great rye IPA, I want more.

Outstanding combination of rye spiciness, malty sweetness, and hoppy aroma and flavor. Just the right amount of bite that made me pleasantly pucker just a bit. Well done.

Rated under duress via sloth...you whip crackin’ displaced Acadienne! Bottle from Half time. Rye supplements and builds the sturdy body but does not come through as an individual ingredient. Hops abound and overshadow rye to some extent. A medium brown that glows. Thicker head that lingers long. Strong hop nose. Bert, this ones right up your hop loving alley.

This is a beautiful jungle cat! It has claws and cannot be contained in your fridge. It wants out an is going for your throat! I’m a firm believer that great beer begins with aroma. This beast is marking it’s territory! Deep and floral, earthy and so full. Truly a delight. The aromas are so complex that they almost defy description. When I poured this into my over-sized tulip from the bottle and took a whiff I was gobsmacked! Grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, are just some of the hop aromas. The rye and malt are right there ready to pounce. Like stuffing completes your Thanksgiving turkey. There is a bread, caramel, and sweet roll current that is out of this world. Pours with a pitch perfect tiger orange color and creamy tiger eye head. I’m well aware that some hopheads don’t like balance but in the case of this beer the point is moot. The sweetness of the malts serve as the canvas for the spicy rye and bursts of hop colors. Don’t be fooled..there is palate ripping bitterness throughout, from the first taste, to mid swallow and aftertaste. As this RIPA warms it becomes more aggressive and the alcohol is noticeable. Light this one up with a pepper steak or a saucy smoked pork. This Mama Tiger kills and has young to feed. Beware you unsuspecting villagers!
