COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2009
12 ounce bottle shared by CrellMoset. Thanks! Pours an amber color with a thin head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big floral hops with citrus, sweet malts and a lightly peppery finish. Taste is bitter rye notes lending to a peppery, spicy vibe along with citrus and herbal hop notes and light caramel. Fairly dry and spicy. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Steve’s Liquors in Madison, WI. Pours copper in color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy hops. Perhaps the sweetness is from the rye? Good hoppy flavor but no rye detected in the taste. A solid IPA but nothing too exciting.

jake65 (2613) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle - thanks Adam. Dull copper pour with a modest beige head. Aroma is rather rich with citrus and light caramel malt. Very sweet and syrupy. Tastes more floral in hoppiness with light citrus, caramel, and the drier rye element. Good, but had the hops come through as much in the flavor as they did in the nose, this would be excellent.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Thanks to mikey711 for this one. Pours an opaque orange-amber with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, spice, sour citrus, and prickly rye. Flavor is similar with tart citrus and hop punch in front and in back. White grapefruit all over. Medium mouthfeel and bitter-finishing IPA.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours a transparent bright orange amber with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with some dusty rye chracter and grapefruity hop spice. Starts fairly full and sweet with an interesting grainy component and good juicy, resiny hops. Finishes drier, crisp and bittersweet with a lingering hop bite. A pretty good Rye IPA.

rhinobrau (17) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Beautiful amber color with a weak head. Not much aroma, at least for an IPA. Great malt up front, including some spicy rye, followed by decent hop bitterness. Very nice balance.

CanIHave4Beers (3253) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Pours a hazy orange-ish gold color with a nice head with good retention and modest lace. Aroma is grassy and somewhat piney. Flavor had some good grapefruit, some nice rye bitter character, with just a little bit of caramel. Plenty of spiciness is around and it’s pretty dry. I enjoyed this indeed.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2009
12oz bottle served in a shaker. Poured a lightly hazy amber with a short-lived head of thin beige foam. Decent lacing. The aroma had notes of toasted caramel drenched with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor was a blend of crystal malt, caramel and rye spiciness along with oranges, grapefruit, and peach. Moderately sweet with a lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and had light carbonation. Just OK.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 18, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey - Pours a clear copper color with a 1/2 finger thick light tan head. Has a decent amount of spotty lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and esters. The rye is noticeable in the flavor along with some caramel malt, hops (cascade like?) and esters. A lightly carbonated, medium body beer. Nice. Thanks Bill.
