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).

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2010
At a tasting, thanks David, small staying head, a little hazy medium orange colour, aroma of rose petals, mandarine, orange marmalade, flavopurs of orange, melon, herbs and biscuit, coupled with with a strong lasting bitterness, medium sweet bitter aftertase. A good but not overbearing IPA.

cbkschubert (2901) - 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.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Notes of skunk, pine, citrus, sweat, earth, and peas. Medium mouthfeel and finish.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 16, 2009
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 Mark’s has, which may be why it’s hard for me to see this as an IPA.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle cortesy of mother in law. Spicy and somewhat floral aroma. Copper body with cramy head. Flavor was of sweet malt and some rye bitterness. Medium bodied brew an ipa? Easy on the palate. Had a Bells pale ale before this one thought this was more like an APA.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 31, 2010
12oz bottle thanks to Diomede. Hazy gold orange with a small head. Crystal malt and light hops in the aroma. Bitter, with some spicy malt flavors and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Has definitely gone off a bit since bottling. Hops mostyle manifest with a string bitterness in the finish, with aroma being a bit muted. Not an IPA that I would reach for over many others, but drinkable.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a glowing clear amber with a nice thick frothy peachy head. Aroma is strong but interesting, pungent, lots of bitter piney hops, resin, a nice whiff of lovely rye, however, some funky cheese/feet smell that is mucking it up. Flavor is quite sweet, very chewy, lots of bitter resiny hops, quite earthy, toffee maybe diacytel, spicy rye, a bit too sweet, caramel. Nice medium body with a full sticky glassy hard-candyish mouth feel.

Lovely golden orange color. Hop aroma is gentle. Interesting mix of pepper and bitter hops. It works for me because the pepper fades off nicely.

illidurit (2284) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle courtesy Diomede, I think. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma of old hops, grapefruity but dusty. Caramel and crystal malt flavor with a little bit of rye spiciness and a tart citrus character coming through. Medium body and good carbonation. Needs a fresh rerate.

portableparty (2281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2010
12 oz. bottle to tulip glass. Pour is copper orange which appears cloudy and a nice head. Aroma is strong rye and hops which is very nice. Taste is hoppy grapfruit and rye with cinnamon too. Palate is sticky and dry finish. Overall I really enjoy Bitter Old Woman and this one is that much better.
