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.

Golden color, nice lacing. Spicy, great hop presence. I am a fan of hoppy ryes. One of GLBC?s best beers.

Pour is medium carbonation, off white to creamy head of 3/4in with gentle bubbles in glass. Slight haze and light amber color. Aroma of bread, pineapple, maybe some apricot(?)--could be a blend of the malt sweetness and pineapple combined. Taste is somewhat thin, slight citrus dryness with back of tongue hop bitterness in finish. Rye could be a bit stronger. Overall a smooth beer, needs a little more depth/complexity to be outstanding.

1pintatatime (70) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Amber color with a long-lasting off-white head. Aroma is malt-forward with bread and biscuit ahead of the hops. Taste is initially sweet but thatís quickly followed by pepper, cloves, and maybe even a hint of ginger before the bitterness kicks in. The finish is quite bitter and long. Overall flavor is quite complex. The mouth feel is a little less firm than Iíd prefer, but still tasty, even it itís not an every day beer.

One of my least favorite Great Lakes beers, mostly because of the buttery aftertaste. The peppery spice is nice, though....

ogivlado (5584) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottled 355ml. -Courtesy of MatSciGuy, shared with him and Marko (thanks!). Orange/golden coloured, small off-white head, pleasant hoppy nose. Sweet malty, citric hoppy and light alcoholic with moderate bitterness in the finish. Interesting but somehow pretty ordinary brew.

jflopsu (505) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pours a clear rust orange with white head. Has a grainy and citrus hop aroma. A very earthy and grainy taste with strong malts and hops that linger with a bitter aftertaste.

tmoreau (2324) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served showing a clear, orangey gold color, with a persistent layer of frothy, off white head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was a modest nose of sweet citrus as orange & pulp, and some spiciness. The taste also started sweet, with maltiness, and bitterness that was citrus, rind, & rye. Medium bodied, fairly disguised alcohol, but pretty tasty.

Beerathon (1112) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
One of the few IPAs where the flavor exceeds the aroma. Donít get me wrong, the hops are there in the nose, but tropical fruits and spice come through much more in taste. Yum!

[Bottle] Dark golden pour with a small amount of head on top. Rye malt and earthy hop aromas. Moderately bitter overall. Rye, bread, pine, white pepper, biscuit and some citrus notes in the taste. Nice balance. The flavors come together well here. Lingering sweet and malty finish.

12oz bottle courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Amber pour with thin white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and grass. Tastes are orange rind, tropical fruit, floral and solid rye malty backbone. Good.
