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 (2131) - 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.

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...

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Floral hop aroma with just a hint of rye spicing. Flavor is pretty dominated by hops on the entry, nice malts in the middle, then more solid hop bitterness with a little more of that spicy rye in the finish and aftertaste. Very nice.

portableparty (2019) - 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.

Trev (1996) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Pours dark gold with reddish tinge and a thin o/w head. Aroma is dusty caramel maltiness, rye breadiness and some resiny hop. Flavour is nice herbal bitter, with a grainy sourness. Medium malt and smooth body. Bit of a lingering mettalic bitterness to the finish though.

hombrepalo (1929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Archer Liquors. Not a bad Rye IPA. Bottle. Pours light brown/amber with a small ring of tan head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, and spicy rye malt. Flavor is initially quite spicy from the rye with a citrus, fruity malt finish. Pleasant and easy drinking! Nice beer.

RSRIZZO (1896) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Color is a nice golden brown with light carbonation and a small head. Aroma is a rich floral hop scent. Taste rich, hoppy and bitter. Starting with a bolder medium body it goes down with a rich feel. Finish comes in malty then a big floral hop taste, a touch of hay and bold bitterness. After taste is dry and bitter. This is a very good IPA with an extra bitter kick.

GranvilleTim (1778) - Granville, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Golden amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma of rye and hops. Rye flavor is dominent-especially at the end. Nice hop flavor accompanies the rye and the malt. Aroma of hops gets better as itwarms- nice smell as you tip back the pint glass. Some lacing on the glass.

Outstanding rye IPA. Great interplay and balance between the rye and pine/citrus hops with a soft caramel malt backing.
