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.

Pour is a slightly hazy golden orange with a bubbly off white head. Lots of rye spice on the nose, good bit of malt, a touch of dark fruit, some nice floral hoppiness and a bit of citrusy bitterness. Very much a malt forward and spicy ipa on the taste, there’s a good bit of lemon and grapefruit bitterness, kind of a grassy taste too, and a bit of pine. A lot maltier than most IPA’s, still quite tasty.

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 (739) - 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.

Wonderful burnt orange color with a thin cream head. Strong hoppy and grain flavor with a bitter hoppy finish. Really smooth and easy to drink. Had at home out of a bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nuffield (3747) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2015
Not my style. Great aroma with lots of color and floral notes. Intensely dry with a long finish that runs to the astringent end. Bottle at first church men’s grouo of the summer.

BierMeHoos (263) - Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an IPA glass. The aroma is roasted grain and rye with a caramel touch. Appearance is clear honey yellow-brown color with a foamy white head. Taste is highly bitter beer with a mellow, malty, medium sweetness. Palate is full body finish. Strong aftertaste that has a lingering quality. Power house rye.

Lots of different aromas - spruce, honey, that raw/wild rye aroma and even some fruit - maybe mango. Coppery color, mostly clear with an off-white moderate head. Taste is somewhat sweet with plenty of hop bitterness. Medium body,creamy and slightly oily texture. Carbonation just a little lively, which works well with all the strong flavors and a long lively, bitter finish. I like the strong but diverse flavors - lots of hop, wild rye, just the right amount of sweetness and even just a touch of fruit.

This beer has serious hops and gives a real kick in the IPA. It has real complexity. Great label and has some spice to add to the flavor.

A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is cereal and citrus. The flavor is spicy grain and citrus peel.

tectactoe (2937) - Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle: Highly cloudy body, sitting somewhere between amber & orange. Slow forming head that grows huge, three fingers at least with a modest pour; just as slow to recede, nice lacing left behind. Beautiful looking beer. Aroma is LOADED with rye. Very spicy & dry on the nostrils. Toasted grains, leafy, herbal, ashy... Bitter, white pepper covered grapefruit rinds in the background with a charred bread back-end. The first sip isn’t quite a spicy as the nose would indicate, which is good. Still plenty of herbal, peppery bitterness & a bit of spiciness on the tongue from the rye, but it’s manageable. Mild hop bitterness; cut & dry experience. Buried citrus flavors, maybe a hint of grapefruit. The bitter pith, not so much the sweet or acidic flesh. Burnt toast & spicy rye seeds in the finish. Surprisingly creamy body. Generally not a fan of rye beers... This one was decent, but I still didn’t love it.
