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).

bhensonb (11263) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours amber with a little beige head. Aroma is strongly malty with a fair amount of hop. Medium body with chewy, creamy carbonation. Flavor is more rye malt than not, and the hop is quite floral and fruit. Rye seems to help cut the malt, and the hop helps there too. Got a good taste in the finish. Dry, astringent, bitter. Very good beer.

alexsdad06 (5587) - Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma has citrus hoppiness, a spicy bite of rye, and some additional floral and resiny hops. The flavor is a fresh green earthy citrus hoppiness, the rye component is stronger mid to late, with moderate bitterness throughout. Medium bodied, smooth, dry finish. This is a nice drinkable IPA.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle courtesy of mibirder. Pours reddish-amber with a thin, but lacy head. Aroma is citrus hops on a characteristic rye backbone. Flavor is much the same with the rye spiciness making itself known in the finish. Good carbonation and a silky body make this amazingly drinkable. Rye definitely enhances the flavor of the already excellent Bitter Woman.

theisti (3259) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2010
12 oz twist off bottle sent to me by my 2009 winter Secret Santa. Pour is orange golden, mostly clear, with a bunch of very fine floaties suspended in the glass. The head is a one inch egg white, and falls with pretty lacing. Aroma of immediate resin hops, a nice caramel malt behind that, followed by the spiciness of the rye in the back. Nice transition and integration of aromas. Taste is bitter resin immediately in the tongue, along with the rye bread and semi sweet caramel notes of the malt. The rye really spices up the back, leading to a dry, crisp finish. The taste is a bit brasher than the nose, and a tick less integrated - though I thought this really help the rye shine. Palate is medium, normal carbonation levels and a really clean unfiltered feel to it. Nice one, thanks Santa.

tomer (1746) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2010
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.

brokensail (11089) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: A 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass reveals a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. S: The smell features a lot of tropical fruit and citrus. There is a fair amount of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. There is also a sweet caramel flavor, along with a mild spiciness on the malt side of things. T: Despite this beer being several months old, there is still a surprising amount of hop character. The flavor has a very nice bitterness and a mild citrus. The rye lends this beer a nice spicy flavor to go along with the bready malt. M: The body is a bit thin, but not terrible. The carbonation is moderate. D: This is one of the better IPAs Iíve had from outside of CA, even at its age. A nice beer that Iím glad I got a chance to try.
