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.

bottle. pretty surprised to see this scored this highly on here. i didnít find the hop character to be all that big in the nose and flavor and certainly was no match for the rather sweet malt base, pretty high on the crystal usage here, fairly boring malt base, some spiciness from the rye. fairly fruity and floral hop character that seemed a bit generic and uninteresting. body was a bit too big and lacked a crisp mouth feel, rather sticky mouth feel. sweet finish. I feel like this beer is caught in between IPA and IIPA and canít pull it off. Malt base seemed closer to a IIPA being rather sweet while the hops just couldnít cut it. Lower the crystal and increase some late and/or dry hops and this could be really solid. Itíll do if thereís nothing else fresh around but there has to be nowadays right?

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2014
(Rating #8,500) Bottle... Clear orange pour with a small, fluffy, white head. Good retention. The aromatic standouts are tropical fruits and melons. Medium to full-bodied and heavily creamy with stinging carbonation. Crunchy honey and biscuit malts are overwhelmed by spicy, tannic and acrid hops in both the flavor and the astringent, bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

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 (4859) - 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 iíve had in a rye-based beer. Overall, a nice beer - if you like rye, youíll 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 Wegmanís 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.

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 Founderís Redís 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
