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).

Draft in a pint glass. I expected a hoppier aroma and finish. The rye was not overpowering. I will have to sample this one again.

Twistoff (WACK!!) bottle poured into snifter (thanks Skinnyguy!). Nice copper color with an appealing white head that exhibits nice retention and lacework. Aroma is nice (bitter) hops with a bit of rye malt to balance it out, but not as pungent as I was hoping. The flavor is the same. There is a definite resinous and bitter hop presence, but the malt shines through way more than it should in an IPA. Not enough hop flavor - just dry resinous bitterness, a bitterness that they rye adds to in a way that is is pretty 1D and overwhelming. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: not a bad beer, but a disappointment.

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.

12 oz. bottle, bottled 08MAY09. Whoops, just ’cause it’s a "Brewers Gone Wild" doesn’t mean this is meant for cellaring. Not at 6%. So let’s pop this puppy. Dark amber/orange color, thin head laces up the glass. Smell is a base APA with a bit of Columbia & Cascade. Taste is full of APA action. Plenty of other spices, some of it from rye, but probably just as much from hops. But a great hop bomb, almost sessionable otherwise.

Thanks to mikey711 for this one. Pours an opaque orange-amber with a small off-white head. Nose is caramel, spice, sour citrus, and prickly rye. Flavor is similar with tart citrus and hop punch in front and in back. White grapefruit all over. Medium mouthfeel and bitter-finishing IPA.

BeerandBlues2 (9697) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear amber with an average, rocky off-white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, cereal, meal), heavy hop (flowers, citrus, pine), average yeast (sweat, dough) with notes of alcohol, apple, pear, peach, and pineapple. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

( 12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye, it also happens to have my likeness on it - see my avatar) Pours a rusty orange with nice bubbles. Nose is rye, floral hops. Taste is sweet and malty, some bitter rye on the finish, but quite enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to brian23456 (BA)!
Tepid tan orange, head gone quickly. Nose has cereal and grapefruit. Flavor is heavy sugar, caramel, and orange. Lightly minty finish and probably where the hops are most noticeable, but also heavy burnt sugar. Crisp but rather sticky. IIPA-like with the heavy sweetness and lack of balance.
