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).

Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice copper color. Lots of citrus, rye, and caramel. Great hop notes all around. The taste is a bit of bread and spicy rye. All this underneath a very nice citrus hop presence. Good body with some zest. With this and others, I’m really disappointed I left Chicago right as Tyranena was coming in.

Bottled. Poured clear, brighter orange with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was bright and assertive with orange zest and floral hoppage first and foremost joined by dirty, dusty, spicy rye.. soft, supple caramel supported. The flavor had caramel and lighter fruits at the core supporting juicy oranges, pine, and peppery rye around.. heavy, lingering bitterness and a splash of warmth on the finish. Medium-bodied in ideally carbonated on the palate with excellent balance.. sweetened up as it warmed.. very good offering!

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2009
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 (3989) - 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.

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.

Bottle, pours a pale orange-brown body with off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and floral hops, lemon citrus, caramel malts, and sugar. Flavor is similar with the rye coming near the mid-palate. Medium-bodied; slightly sticky and oily on the palate. Bitter grapefruit and hop resin finish.

A far cry and a vast improvement over the regular Tyranena Bitter Woman IPA. This beer is quite a bit bigger (although still has a reasonable ABV) and lacks the watery approachability of the original. Floral and bitter, I liked it a great deal. It poured a cherry-wood color into my glass with very little head. Aroma is faint, floral, and perfume-y; pretty mild for an IPA, but the proof is in the taste. Flavor is a lot of dry bitterness that sort of slapped me across the face. The bitterness lacked citrus/grass/pine complexity, and wasn’t exactly the essence of hoppiness, but I was still pretty satisfied with it. Mouthfeel was pretty light for IPA, but in no way watery. Pretty good - I’d have it again, but it wasn’t as pungent as the other Brewer’s Gone Wild series. Ah, makes me sad to not live in WI anymore....wondering if the OH State Fair has a craft beer tent... This bottle was a gift from Surly Sober.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2009
After pouring into a shaker glass, I thought the aroma was rather weak for an IPA. Attractive beer, gold/amber in hue. Not cloudy at all. Taste was excellent. It’s not quite the quality of Founder’s Red Rye, or Bear Rep. Hop Rod Rye, but it isn’t too far behind. Love the hoppy, rye bitterness and active carbonation. Great beer from another Wisconson Micro.
