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 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.

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 (2435) - 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.

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

drpimento (2312) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Not bad, not great. Poured nicely with a fine foamy off white head and good lace. Color is a very slightly hazy medium amber. Aroma is hoppy fruity, citrus, and wet leather. Flavor’s about the same, but a little too fruity sweet for me. Body is decent and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and sweet bitter medium long.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey – thanks Bill! Pours clear light amber with a rocky 2 finger off-white head. The nose is rye upfront with citrus hops and malt. The taste is citrus and pine hops with some rye mixed in. Medium bodied. Good, but I like the regular Bitter Woman better.

msante79 (2212) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2009
12oz bottle from Orland Park Binny’s single rack. Pours clear copper with off-white head. Is mostly floral hops and caramel malt with some rye and a hint of citrus. Flavor is bitter hops, rye, caramel malt, and light citrus. Finishes bitter and has good mouthfeel and carbonation. Rye really brings on bitterness. Another solid IPA.

illidurit (2199) - 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.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Another winner from Tyranena: Pours a clear copper colour with a thin head that leads behind a trail of noticeable layered sticky weblike lacing. Instantly on the nose however is the RYE! Rye is unavoidable and it’s a perfect harmony between Rye and hops. Hoppy and clear from beginning to end. Maybe it’s the fog but everything has become so much clearer now...
