This rye pa pours a deep amber hue with a small off white head that leaves a nice lacing. The nose is a pure hop bomb reminiscent of great lakes other great ipas. Lots of grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruits. There is a little spice due to the rye but it is minimal and overwhelmed by the hops. The mouthfeel is sticky and coating in that awesome dipa way. The flavor is pure hop bomb. Virtually no rye flavors in the palate just hoppy bitter goodness. This is a great beer for those that love hops. Try it now before you have to wait til next year.

Rye Of The Tiger IPA 6pk bottles $8.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. As always freshness date clearly marked.

Pours a nice gold color with a very subtle haze. A three finger head lasts for a while. Giving way to Soap bubble like lacing all over the glass.

The aroma is what a quality IPA should be. Strong grapefruits. Strong Citrus notes. With a nice piney surrounding.

Taste follows the nose. A blast of hops. Strong citrus notes and an excellent finish with pine. Smooth from start to finish. not very bitter at all for 92 IBU's.

Mouth feel is great. A full bodied IPA that leaves many tastes clinging to your palate. Great carbonation. Not bitter for an IPA at 92 IBU's

Overall this is another great brew from Great Lakes Brewery In Cleveland Ohio. Great IPA but I think its seasonal. First time I have seen it in over a year.
