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.

Draft at Maria’s. Pours a golden with good clarity. Nose is very grainy with some low butterscotch notes. Unpleasant caramel and odd vegetal hops. On tasting, harsh bitterness with some astringency. The rye is clashing and more butterscotch. Not good.

jhp40219 (350) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a nice large white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma and taste is citrus hops, spicy rye, malt, caramel, and wheat. Strong malty backbone balances well with the citrus hops and rye. Tastes more like an IIPA. Medium body, sticky texture, high carbonation. Nice long malty finish. Really good.

TheSilentSaint (77) - Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours golden orange with small head. Smells hops. Mouthfeel is medium thick with light carbonation. Tastes hops and pines and of course particular dry bitterness of rye. What is little disappointing is more than hint of malt. But overall a good IPA. Summer IPA!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with Parksy. Orange amber, lasting white head. Big citrus hop character, moderately sweet, subtley spicy, assertive bitterness. Very tasty.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 Not my favorite style but not bad. Pours dark straw color with a white head. Aromas of, citrus lemon lime mostly. Some, spruce and herbs. Taste mostly the same. A little more subdued than the aroma. Light to medium mouth feel. Overall nit to bad. Very hoppy.

bigda83 (343) - Jamestown, New York, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a hazy orange with a thin sudsy white head. Aroma of rye, malts, spices, and floral. Flavor follows suit with tons of rye, but not much floral is as present as it was with the nose. I’m just not a fan of rye beers. Medium bitterness to it and a dry finish.

bigtaster (752) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2015
From bottle into snifter. Pours a light clear orange red color with big tan head. Nose is tropical hops, peach, oranges, lemon, lime, some spice. Medium body, medium to light sweetness, medium bitterness, high carbonation. The rye spice shows up in the finish, with some pine and grapefruit hop bitterness. Nice beer.
