4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bit of a lingering mettalic bitterness to the finish though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
