Rob so enjoyed the rye component of Dirty Old Man that we decided to brew an IPA with it as well. We’ll be amping up the gravity, as well as the flavoring and aroma hops (relative to Bitter Woman).

Bottle courtesy of mibirder. Pours reddish-amber with a thin, but lacy head. Aroma is citrus hops on a characteristic rye backbone. Flavor is much the same with the rye spiciness making itself known in the finish. Good carbonation and a silky body make this amazingly drinkable. Rye definitely enhances the flavor of the already excellent Bitter Woman.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma has citrus hoppiness, a spicy bite of rye, and some additional floral and resiny hops. The flavor is a fresh green earthy citrus hoppiness, the rye component is stronger mid to late, with moderate bitterness throughout. Medium bodied, smooth, dry finish. This is a nice drinkable IPA.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Floral hop aroma with just a hint of rye spicing. Flavor is pretty dominated by hops on the entry, nice malts in the middle, then more solid hop bitterness with a little more of that spicy rye in the finish and aftertaste. Very nice.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle… October ’09 O-Town Throwdown... Clear yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma presents black tea, caramel, resin and spicy rye. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor tilts toward the bitter side of balance, but provides nice malty, grainy essences of caramel and rye. Bittersweet, dry finish. Bottle provided by juiceisloose

tennisjoel (1374) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pour is red amber body with a thin soapy head. Nose is vegetal and fruity hops with some rye and caramel malts. Interesting mouthfeel, somewhat dry finish but the rye kind of slowly sneaks in, giving a interesting kick at the end. Because of its uniqueness, I enjoyed this over the regular Bitter Woman.

DrnkMcDermott (3007) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2009
12 oz. bottle, bottled 08MAY09. Whoops, just ’cause it’s a "Brewers Gone Wild" doesn’t mean this is meant for cellaring. Not at 6%. So let’s pop this puppy. Dark amber/orange color, thin head laces up the glass. Smell is a base APA with a bit of Columbia & Cascade. Taste is full of APA action. Plenty of other spices, some of it from rye, but probably just as much from hops. But a great hop bomb, almost sessionable otherwise.

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours amber with a little beige head. Aroma is strongly malty with a fair amount of hop. Medium body with chewy, creamy carbonation. Flavor is more rye malt than not, and the hop is quite floral and fruit. Rye seems to help cut the malt, and the hop helps there too. Got a good taste in the finish. Dry, astringent, bitter. Very good beer.
