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).

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.

From bottle courtesy of dpjuart. Hoppy nose, herbal with pine resin, caramel, buttery. A little oxidized? Diacetyl. Deep golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with apple, butter, and light oxidation notes. Can’t detect any rye, however. Not bad, but not that special. I was expecting more. Bitter finish and after.

On tap at The Malt House. This was a bit of a disappointment, it didn’t seem much different from the standard Bitter Woman, with very little, if any, rye characteristics. Pours a dark golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is resinous hops and caramel malts, with small hints of Rye. Meh.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Light orange on the pour. Some amounts of hops on the aroma. There might be flavors of hops as well present. Proud to say I have shared a beer with the guy who’s likeness is on this label.

Copper color with a thin head. Strong, spicy rye aroma. While you can certainly pick up the citrusy hops in the flavor, the rye is more than a little overpowering. While a spiffy idea to mix rye and IPA, the result tasted like a compost heap for flowers. Not kosher.
