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.

Pours a clear, dark golden color with a finger and a half length head that leaves decent lacing. Strong citrus and pine aromas, with a bit of the rye slipping through. Taste is bitter all the way through. Not a big malt backbone on this one, but the rye makes up for this quite a bit. Good beer, an easy to drink one for hop heads.

Bottle at Square in Chicago. Spicy rye aroma. Full bodied and very malty sweet underneath. Huge rye spiciness, fruity hoppage. Bold dry finish.

On tap at Progressive Field. A favourite style of mine, and this one doesnít disappoint. Gold-amber with a nice white head. Citrus and caramel in the nose. The flavour is more complex, with lemon and pineapple from the hops joined by peppery rye malt. Nice bitterness level.

pinkzambia (1682) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle: Clear gold with a frothy head. Dry rubber aroma of rye followed by a well balanced hop flavor. Many times, the rye is too strong but this is just right.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a thin white head. Dry rye in the aroma with a pronounced hop bitterness. Bitter and dry throughout with a nice dry rye flavor near the middle. Bitter bite lasts at the finish.

Pours an orange marmalade color with minimal head, great color. Lemongrass, resin, caramel make up the aromas. Flavors of orange peel, caramel, corriander, and rye malts. Beer is heavy on the palate medium high carbonation, hoppy dry finish.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy copper, Two finger off white creamy head, decent lacing, filmy retention. Aroma of rye bread and citrus. Taste is wonderfully balanced sweet peppery malts, bright herbal/citrus hop bitterness. Body is full, moderate carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finish lingers, Tasting notes of pepper, cherry, tangerine, light pine, caramel and herbs. This kitty is a winner

williamherbert (1384) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Lovely SRM 13-15 golden color, absolutely glows, and has a finger of puffy white head. Aroma is spicy rye malts, like a pumpernickel bread. There is a touch of broccoli sulfuric. I had always thought I was imagining this in the past but at least a year later Iím getting the same thing. It overpowers the hop, which is oily, resinous hops. The flavor has less of that broccoli stuff, and is very spicy and well-balanced. The spice of the malts and the spice of the hops are a great combination on the palate. The feel is rough and sandpapery. Iím not advocating to drink this one out of the bottle directly, but itís okay to drink it out of a narrow-rimmed glass. Itís a very solid IPA that could be better if they could figure out that one off-flavor.
