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. Itís 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, youíve earned your stripes.

Iím 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.

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 (2065) - 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 Iím rating it*-- Pours a light cloudy golden color with a thick head. Canít 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 hadnít corrupted this beer by drinking a different IPA before it because this seems to be pretty good.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear amber with white. Good lacing. Aroma of pine, some citrus and a little sweet caramel. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice sweet caramel malt backbone. Very well balanced. Not an over powering rye taste like a lot of rye beers. Pine, citrus, caramel flavors. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good rye P A with all the elements intact. In all, itís not that interesting to me--certainly no Hop Rod Rye. serving size: 12oz bottle.

SamP01 (614) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a slowly fading beige head, good lacing. Aroma of rye, grains, some malt. Taste is rye, mild toasted grains, a bit of caramel malt with some floral earthy hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finishes with rye, grains, malt and earthy hops bitterness for balance, slightly dry ending. Overall a very good, balanced and good drinking brew.

brass color with large pillowy white head. aroma biscuit malt, earthy and spicy hop, slight orange, Simcoe. Medium to high carbonation, tastes like it smells, rye is easy to miss if not alerted to its presence

PA_beer (2) - - MAY 3, 2014 does not count
Aroma: floral Appearance: golden....clear.....frothy Taste: medium bitterness Palate: a good balance between the hops and rye Overall: just ok for me, when RYE is the first word in the title, you would think it is what the overall taste is all about. The hops nor the rye wins out.
