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.

(tap) hazy yellow/orange colour with a small white head; aromas of citrus, tropical fruit; big, wonderfully balanced flavour with a long very strong bitter finish; beats many imperial/double IPAs

Nice bready and hoppy flavor. Drank out of bottle barbecuing. Lots of carbonation and good hops/rye balance.

Bottle. Cloudy appearance, dark orange. Subtle aroma of fruits but very acidic, alcohol tones, but fresh cut grass too. VERY smooth palate, and the taste has great subtle aftertones. This is a winner in my book.

This is a beautiful jungle cat! It has claws and cannot be contained in your fridge. It wants out an is going for your throat! Iím a firm believer that great beer begins with aroma. This beast is marking itís territory! Deep and floral, earthy and so full. Truly a delight. The aromas are so complex that they almost defy description. When I poured this into my over-sized tulip from the bottle and took a whiff I was gobsmacked! Grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, are just some of the hop aromas. The rye and malt are right there ready to pounce. Like stuffing completes your Thanksgiving turkey. There is a bread, caramel, and sweet roll current that is out of this world. Pours with a pitch perfect tiger orange color and creamy tiger eye head. Iím well aware that some hopheads donít like balance but in the case of this beer the point is moot. The sweetness of the malts serve as the canvas for the spicy rye and bursts of hop colors. Donít be fooled..there is palate ripping bitterness throughout, from the first taste, to mid swallow and aftertaste. As this RIPA warms it becomes more aggressive and the alcohol is noticeable. Light this one up with a pepper steak or a saucy smoked pork. This Mama Tiger kills and has young to feed. Beware you unsuspecting villagers!

Clear amber with off white head. Grapefruit and herb on the nose. Taste is grapefruit and bitter hops with an underlying rye bite. Very good beer. Would like to have again, but canít see having more than one in a setting.

On tap at the Great Lakes dinner at the Bethel Rd Winking Lizard on 6/11/09. Iíll be honest, this beer was the whole reason I bought the ticket. Heard good things and really looking forward to trying it. Pours cloudy orange/amber with a medium tan head. Crisp citrus aroma with bready malt notes. Tastes of bread up front, then shifts to sweet malt with a bitter orange finish. Worth it.

The beer pours a cloudy orange with a nice bubbly white head. The aroma is nice with a floral start, some citrus and a touch of rye at the end. The taste is nice citrusy grapefuit with a rye finish. Nice feel and easy drinker.
