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).

Thanks to Ughsmash for sharing this bottle. A solid rye IPA, this one is smoother than your average IPA (as is usual for the style) with that underlying different flavor.

After pouring into a shaker glass, I thought the aroma was rather weak for an IPA. Attractive beer, gold/amber in hue. Not cloudy at all. Taste was excellent. It’s not quite the quality of Founder’s Red Rye, or Bear Rep. Hop Rod Rye, but it isn’t too far behind. Love the hoppy, rye bitterness and active carbonation. Great beer from another Wisconson Micro.

Draft in a pint glass. I expected a hoppier aroma and finish. The rye was not overpowering. I will have to sample this one again.

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.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Got this via trade with wnoble. 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint glass. An aggressive pour yields a reddish-copper with a one-inch head which quickly dissapates into a creamy coating and minimal sticky lacing. Nose reveals the expected rye, some floral and earthy notes as well as some sweeter ones of citrus and brown sugar. The taste is some citrus, spice (peppery), caramel and rye. The finish is dry and mildly bitter but its the rys and pepper that pervades. Mouthfeel is medium, a little slick and oily and with light to medium carbonation. This is a respectable IPA that isn’t like every other, but not one I would fight to get again.

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.
