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.

Bottle from Heinens. Gold with small head and some lace. Fruity hop aroma of citrus rind tangerine and a hint of herbs. Medium sweet honey mango fruitiness with assertive lingering herbal orange rind hop bitterness and mild lingering sweetness. Medium body. Very good.

Delicious. Just the right amount of Rye. Not too bitter. Would do it again.

fraternie (842) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2014
Perhaps the most true to the rye style as I’ve tasted, with loads upon loads of rye malt and grapefruit initially on the palate, leading into a blast of floral hops that show a prickly edge, and finishing with more...rye. Alcohol is present but covered well. Smooth, lacking the medicinal finish that plagues their Commodore Perry IPA, and a bit less aggressive then Sierra Nevada’s rugged Ruthless offering. A beer for spring.

Golden-amber, creamy white head, and great lacing. Floral, caramel, lemon, sweet fruit and mild biscuit aroma. Full bodied, candy-caramel sweet, floral hop notes, and mild lemon-grapefruit. Decent balance, medium, lemon- bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bomber into snifter a light orange with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus some pine. Flavor is sweet resin somewhat malty yet a dry finish. All over the board with this brew but not in a bad way. Moderate carbonation. A solid GL seasonal especially if you are it ryes.

12 ounce bottle poured in a snifter glass. Given the expiration date that’s 3 months from now, my guess is that it was bottled within the last month and that would explain how fresh it smells and tastes. The aroma was big and sweet - melon, pineapple and tangerine. It had an orange appearance and a moderate amount of foam with moderate carbonation. The flavor was similar to the aroma but a little scaled back...sweet tropical fruit and fresh hops. Very nice stuff! I didn’t pick up on the rye aspects much but I still enjoyed it as a straight forward ipa. Medium bodied and refreshing. Overall very tasty and a great value at under $2/bottle.

Refrigerated brown 12 oz. bottle, best by June 28, 2014, poured into a snifter. Pours clear light orange with small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is grapefruit, medium body, low carbonation, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is grapefruit, pine, and dry bitter finish.
