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.

From notes, consumed on 5/21/13. Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a golden brown with 4 fingers of fluffy off-white head. Head fades slowly with sticky lacing. Decent carbonation. Aromas of rye, caramel, toasty notes. Tasting notes of rye, grapefruit, tangerine, toasty bread/biscuit, light pine/resin. Medium body with a mostly dry finish.

jgb9348 (4740) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Deep hazy and muddied copper coloured body with tints of orange and bronze and a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rye, alcohol, yeast, bread and more rye - tons of it - and not many hops to smell, either. Medium to Full-bodied; Dense, deep rye flavours with some alcohol and bitterness behind, all with a very nicely laced piney and floral hop flavour showing a ton of hops and a great balance of the rye and hops. Aftertaste shows exclusively floral and piney hops and TONS of rye - easily the most i’ve had in a rye-based beer. Overall, a nice beer - if you like rye, you’ll love this - perhaps a bit strong for some (including myself), but I can appreciate the difference in flavour and respect the beer as it was intended! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Sterling, Virginia on 03-May-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 11-January-2014.

Pour on tap at Town Hall tap, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of rye, earth, nice orange peel and grass into a slight mix of spice, yeast, hints of grapefruit and orange juice itself. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, and slight pine into a nice spice, grass, rye note in there, with a touch of caramel, toffee, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nicely done, the rye is well accentuated.

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Rye, Grainy, Mild Resin T: Grainy, Resin, Rye M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Dry, Semi Bitter Overall, the rye was a little weak because it got overpowered by the grains and hops but still decent.

tillmac62 (196) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Pours a nice amber with a full bodied head which laces nicely. Well carbonated. The nose is of citrus and piney hops with a rye overtone. The rye flavor is more pronounced than Founder’s Red’s Rye. Both have the bitterness of an IPA, as they should. Light/Medium bodied with a pleasant bitter aftertaste with a hint of rye against a solid malt backbone. More balanced than Founders, but both have hop bitterness as the dominant flavor. Finishes cleanly with malt and hop bitterness. My favorite rye IPA, so far.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish gold. I love the particles that you can see through the beer. Left a finger's worth of white head that dissipates quickly, leaving a nice lace. The aroma is heavy of fruits. Pineapple and cherry mostly, like an old school fruit cocktail. The taste is a bit slow developing. There is a hint of the cherry in the beginning, and then the spiciness of the rye finally comes in and takes over. It coats the mouth just long enough, rolling to a delightful dry finish. A solid rye beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle, this one surprised me, poured a light yellow color with aromas of citrus, light rye, and some light zest. Flavors were a citrusy mix with some pine with a touch of spicy rye in the aftertaste, kudos, a solid beer that I could drink over and over again.

Bottle:   Gold, pale haze, large foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft hop nose, citrus peel, pith, a touch of Rye.   Smooth on the tongue, nice bitterness, mild sweetness, citrusy, with some minor pine.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Nice citrus and pine bitterness on the finish.   Nice balance, never comes across as overly bitter, has a good amount of sweetness to balance it out.   Very solid, and better than most.   Thanks Kevin!
