COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rob so enjoyed the rye component of Dirty Old Man that we decided to brew an IPA with it as well. Weíll be amping up the gravity, as well as the flavoring and aroma hops (relative to Bitter Woman).

This is a perfect brew for my 400th rating! (Awesome brew from my favorite brewery!)Pours a beautiful amber/copperish color with a medium beige head. Wonderful aromas of Hops,citrus and sweet caramel malts. Flavor is of mouth puckering hops that is quickly taken over by a spicey bite of the rye that then falls on to a great caramel malt backing. Wonderful bitter finish. One thing I very much enjoyed about this brew was the velvety smooth mouthfeel.This brew is a great twist on my favorite 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 itís a perfect harmony between Rye and hops. Hoppy and clear from beginning to end. Maybe itís the fog but everything has become so much clearer now...

Bottle. Pours an orangish amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of earthy hops and citrus. Taste is hops, rye and caramel malt. The flavor is nicely balanced and didnít flood by mouth with tons of hop bitterness like many of the over hopped/hyped west coast IPAís. Easy to drink with a smooth pleasant dry finish.

Spicey ,citrusy hopping is dominating fragrance, Cascade is still the main player here,the caramel malting comes through as your nose gets a handle on that initial banzai hop charge,you can feel the strength of the brew in your nose,this will definitely be putting a little weight on Cal. Head is minimal, Kingpin said he had no head at all. The first thing you notice on the taste is the spark of the spicey peppery rye,followed closely by a solid bitter hop and rye tongue lock, Kraft caramel square backing,quite evident despite the apparent 200+ IBUís, mildly carbonated ,almost like a handpull, this mildness of the carbonation lets the oiliness of the hops become more of a manifested factor. The spicey rye bitterness is what is left in your mouth at the finish. Unlike most rye IPAís ,this brew battles your tongue the entire glass. A little to slick to be considered a thirst quencher,not complex enough to be considered uniquely special,it is still an excellent summer IPA and Iíll problay abandon her skinny sister while this is available. Bigger and smoother then Red Rye, but still bitter enough to scare away hopophobics

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2009
On draught at the Tyranena taproom in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with a creamy off-white head that has some nice retention an spotty lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt, a hint of citrus, white pepper, and a touch of fruit. Taste is medium bodied, dry caramel malt flavor with grapefruit, citrus zest and plenty of grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a lingering dry hop aftertaste that lingers after the finish.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle from Samís Wine. Pours a clear ambery-orange with a fizzy head. Nose is pretty spicy and rough with some strong resiny notes jumping through as well. This is a very different beer that is super interesting. On the taste, it carries through with pepper and bitter grain notes, some mild cardamom and a nice dryness. the hops are nearly overshadowed in this one, as you know that it is definitely a Rye beer. Finishes with a pumpernickel bread note and clean bitterness. Very nice.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Caramel apple aroma. Clear amber in color with little head. Soft hops, slight citric, with a nice spicy rye bite. Not a mindblower, but real tasty. Liking it more.

A really smooth beer that ends with the most lovely aftertaste. The hop character was right on target. I bought only a single, but will try and find a four pack if there are any left.

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.

Bottle shared shigadeyo. Poured a clear brown color with an average creamy white head that was mostly lasted and had good lacing. Medium to heavy ciitrus hop and rye aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew and standout for style.
