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).

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.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Steve’s Liquors in Madison, WI. Pours copper in color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy hops. Perhaps the sweetness is from the rye? Good hoppy flavor but no rye detected in the taste. A solid IPA but nothing too exciting.

Bottle pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows caramel, rye, oranges, and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of pine. Overall body is moderate and the finish is dry with a lasting bitterness.

lucent copper, thin white head, highly effervescent.

aroma: caramel, citrus hops.

taste:
T1= caramel, rye.
T2= bitter citrus hops, co2.
T3= bitter hop oil, rye spiciness.

the rye spiciness is good, but leaves me desiring a richer and deeper malt character.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Clear orangish brown pour. Aroma is soapy, citrus, and malty. Flavor is soap, astringent, grass, citrus, and some sweet caramely malts.

tennisjoel (1180) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pour is red amber body with a thin soapy head. Nose is vegetal and fruity hops with some rye and caramel malts. Interesting mouthfeel, somewhat dry finish but the rye kind of slowly sneaks in, giving a interesting kick at the end. Because of its uniqueness, I enjoyed this over the regular Bitter Woman.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 On tap at The Malt House. Not sure if it was the Malt House’s glassware but this beer smelled kinda funky, like a damp basement in a really old house. The hops seemed pretty subdued compared to other beers I recently had. The rye smooths out some of the abrasiveness you find in some IPAs but overall, I just didn’t care for it.

Bottle courtesy The Bearded Brewer. Pours amber orange with little head. Buttery nose, mild hop. Mild bitter, bread, piny hop flavor, dry and clingy. Seems iffy, like diacetyly. eh.

Courtesy fantomas23. Pours a dark amber-orange color with a thick and foamy off white head that shows good retention and leaves sheets of lacing behind. The aroma shows pine and orange citrus hops up front to go with the toasted caramel malt backbone. Hints of rye grains and spiciness are noticeable as well. The flavor follows and is quite bitter from the citrus and pine hops, but the sweet caramel and biscuity malts are there to balance things out. The rye is more pronounced in the flavor adding bold spiciness that seems to enhance the hop bitterness. Full bodied and smooth with good carbonation that leads to a lengthy bitter finish from all the hops. I like the flavor that the rye adds in this beer. Really nicely done ipa.
