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

Bottled. Excellent east coast IPA. Bright, crunchy body, piney hops, a slightly sweet tang in the finish. Nice even bitterness, perfect body.

The latest release in the Brewers Gone Wild series is a nice twist. Mixing rye with the Bitter Woman results in a Midwestern IPA which is a little different than your usual beer. Pick it up fresh and savor a new experience.

Aroma / Appearance - Opaque bronze fluid swirled around the glass creating a dense sandy head. There was a trace of carbonation keeping it interesting. The aroma is not unlike that of roses growing in a field of wheat. Peach, melon, and iced tea complete the profile. Smooth and sweet it has everything you would want in an IPA.

Flavor / Palate - Toasted rye, peach, and lemon enrich the palate. A honeyish aftertaste and bitter finish wrap up the basics. Easy to drink it would not be hard to finish two or three in an evening, especially on a damp summer day.

5/26/2009: Tyranena Bitter Woman In The Rye has a big citrus hoppiness in the aroma and tons of hop resin in the flavor. This beer is light on the malt, but the spicy character of the rye definitely comes through. Overall the bitterness level is moderate+ and it finishes dry thanks to the rye. The beer is deep gold in color with a white to off-white head that has a lovely reverse cascading display on the pour and then leaves thick lacing on the glass throughout. This beer is also medium-bodied with a slick, smooth texture. Tasty!

12 fl. oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06. Thanks! Rating #32 for this beer.

Bottle - I canít say I was too psyched out this beer since Iím not really a fan of rye, but I decided to give it a try anyways. Itís about what I expected -- a sweet bready smell mixed with generous amounts of both citrusy and bitter hops, as well as the dry, spicy rye in the background. Taste is roughly the same, though itís a bit more caramelly and the citrus hops leave the building. All thatís left is the bitter hops and just a bit of rye. The best part for me was the smooth, creamy, and oily texture -- I love the way it felt. Iíd like to acquire a taste for rye, but after having this and several others, Iím going to say itís not for me.

Bottle from bockyhorsey, another MidWest grab by him for me. Poured similar to the Bitter Woman IPA, amber and fairly clear. Pretty big pfffssst upon bottle opening, some suds jumped out actually. The head was also larger than with the standard Bitter Woman. The aroma was strong bitter and floral hops, canít say I smelled much different, caramel too. The flavor followed, but the bitterness was much longer lingering than with the standard Bitter Woman brew, piney elements along with the floral. This was a nice IPA, good kick in the end. After one more brew tonite, Iíll be ready for bed. Thanks, Bill!

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.

12 oz. bottle, bottled 08MAY09. Whoops, just ícause itís a "Brewers Gone Wild" doesnít mean this is meant for cellaring. Not at 6%. So letís 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.

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.

This beer reminds me of Mark--FirmButtStone--his signature beer. 12oz, no date from Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. Clear orange with a one finger yellowish white creamy head, good retention. The good news is that I had no trouble finding the spicy sweet rye in the aroma. The bad news is that the hops were on par with an APA--only some light citrus hop notes. There is also some caramel malt. The flavor has a slightly brighter citrus hop character, but I stress the word slightly. Needs more aroma hops! Semi-dry with bitterness around a 4. There is still plenty of rye, which does make me happy--unfortunately, it is only half of the equation. Light prickly carbonation with a light to medium body. Pretty good, but lacking the shitload of hops that Markís has, which may be why itís hard for me to see this as an IPA.

tmoreau (2626) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2009
12oz. bottle share at Lunar Brewing. Poured a clear amber with a modest, off white head and spotty lacing. The aroma was citrus, resin, and spice, with some definite acridity and the slight presense of an off, stale hint. The flavor was mainly dry and earthy, yet pleasant notes of sweetness, and caramel came through. A strong hop bitterness lasted through the finish.
