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. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2009
Bottle at Chris´grill party. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Smells of hops, alcohol and a bit of rye. Also a bit of dark rye bread as it ages in the glass. Low sweetness with some bitterness. Good loads of hops with touches of rye. Light to medium body with a soft carbonation. Could have a bit more body.

Burnt orange pour with thick white head. Aroma of orange peel, rye, some bread. Flavor is well-balanced between very bitter hops and rye, but no characteristic dominates the beer. Creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, Spicey rye finish. Pretty good beer. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2009
12oz bottle 6/6/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a clear amberish orange with a small tight off white head. Aroma of rye, hops, malt, and grains. Rye, hops, citrus start the flavors off then followed by a bit of malt and it finishes with more rye and a dryness. This medium bodied brew is a different twist but well balanced and another great BGW. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2009
12oz bottle from my Secret Santa - thanks, Santa! Amber pour with a moderate carbonation. Sharp and grassy aromas, with the rye not too detectable in the aroma of sharp hops and bread. Decent mouthfeel and overall a solid IPA, with the rye much more modest than in, e.g., Terrapin. Cool, bitter session beer.

Bottle. Pours light brown/amber with a small ring of tan head. Aroma of citrus, caramel malt, and spicy rye malt. Flavor is initially quite spicy from the rye with a citrus, fruity malt finish. Pleasant and easy drinking! Nice beer.

bottle. pours hazy gold with off white head. nose of lime, citrus, earth, grass. flavor of citrus, grapefruit, earthy with touch of rye in the finish. not worth the price tag. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Suspended particle laden amber with a medium taupe head that slowly fades away and a few light bubbles. Aroma of rye, citrus, malt and some vegetal notes. Taste of rye, mild citrus, caramel and light sulfur. Palate is a bit oily and it finishes up only mildly bitter. For some reason, this one doesn’t seem hoppy enough. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2009

5/26/2009: Tyranena Bitter Woman In The Rye has a big citrus hoppiness in the aroma and tons of hop resin in the flavor. This beer is light on the malt, but the spicy character of the rye definitely comes through. Overall the bitterness level is moderate+ and it finishes dry thanks to the rye. The beer is deep gold in color with a white to off-white head that has a lovely reverse cascading display on the pour and then leaves thick lacing on the glass throughout. This beer is also medium-bodied with a slick, smooth texture. Tasty!
12 fl. oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06. Thanks! Rating #32 for this beer.
12 oz bottle. Clear amber with a thin whitish head. Nose is orange taffy, a bit salty with the rye. Sharp carb with a creamy mouthfeel ending resiny. Taste is tangerine and grilled pineapple with a nice bitter grapefruit bite. Dry finish with lingering zest and rye.
