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 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.

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.

Six pack from Oliverís in Albany. Pours out a murky golden amber with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Herbal-citrus-malty aromas and flavor profile. Lingering light spicy bitterness. Solid IPA

Thechasm442 (400) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2015
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Beer pours a hazy copper with a thick white head that leaves nice lacing as it shrinks. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, orange, some breads and spice. On to taste. The beer has a pine resin, citrus hop flavor right off the bat. It is met with a nice caramel malt back and some spices from the rye. The beer is quenching and finishes somewhat dry. Great rye IPA.

Bottle to pilsner glass. Clear Yellow. Big white head. Aroma is mostly grassy, some hoppiness and citrus. Taste: rye is forthright, some acetone in the finish. Feel is fairly smooth,medium carbonation. The little bite in the finish is smoothed out by a creamyness, but it almost tastes soapy at that point. Not too shabby. Rocky......WIN!!!!�
