22oz bottle poured into a FFF Teku glass. From the most recent December/January 2012/13 release.
Rye'da Tiger pours a lovely bright copper color, hues of orange and gold, somewhat cloudy, lots of sediment floating in the glass with a few bubbles rising up from the bottom. A nice, thick, cloudy, white head rises out of the beer, nearly 2 fingers high, tightly packed bubbles that has great retention and leaves behind a large network of soapy lacing. The aroma is superb, bright citrus with light subtle floral notes, resinous pine and some earthy grass lead to sweet pale grain and a bit of fusel alcohol. Bright citrus hits the tongue, grapefruit with lighter tangerine, lovely floral notes come out with a big burst of sticky, oily pine and bitter, earthy notes of grass and weeds, prickly rye is apparent with some sweet grain and strong astringent alcohol. The body is somewhat oily and soapy, medium carbonation, coats the mouth well and has a slightly dry finish with a touch of alcohol bite.
Verdict: A wonderful Imperial Rye IPA from Three Floyds. The hop profile is so bright and vibrant, really shows off the freshness of the beer, the rye is a subtle touch that adds a nice bit of complexity and while this is certainly a boozy beer, the alcohol is never that much of a distraction, a very worthy IPA for any hop head.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Hazy orange. A few bubbles well up and there are a few wisps on top, but otherwise no real head.
Smell - Big tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma. A touch of malt sweetness. I don't get any rye.
Taste - Strong grassy hop. Grapefruit. Not the sweet tropical and pale malt flavor I expected. Instead the rye cuts the sugars and delivers a bite with hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Bitter and rye finish. Medium carbonation.
Overall - The rye flavor is great. Blends with the bitterness really well.
