Pours a nice brown with tan head. Aroma of spice and dough. Flavor matches with more rye in the flavor than in the aroma.

Deep copper/amber color with light tan head. Aroma hit me the instant the top was popped. Intense floral hop aroma. Smooth malty flavor. Good...a keeper.

On tap at Lord Hobo. Amber pour with an off white head. Piney hop bouquet. The taste follows suit. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

Vaiz (3986) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine, Summerlin. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramel malts, rye, quite floral, slightly sweaty and some pine. Flavor is quite bitter, floral and well balanced with a very full body. Very nice brew.

Poured from 45d bottle into Dogfish IPA glass. Translucent mahogany amber color with a foamy off-white head that hung around. Spicy malt aromas blend with citrusy and piney hops; I get a bit of apple note mixing with the sweet caramel resin. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation goes down easy and smooth. The bitterness lingers but in a pleasant way. Drank this one day after Green Flash's Road Warrior. Both are pretty stellar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fruity, flowery aroma. Pours a reddish brown with off-white head. Medium body with plenty of hops and malt character. Noticeable spicy contribution by the rye. Overall, a very enjoyable brew.

Well balanced hops. Spicy rye on the nose with deep, ruby/amber color. Fresh, grassy but chewy when it hits the mouth then quickly smacks you with the earthy Rye although I wish the Rye was a bit stronger. Overall great beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Beautiful copper-orange color with a medium beige head that lingers and laces the glass. Average carbonation. Aroma of floral, citrus, and pine. Taste of mango, pine, citrus, rye with bready malt arriving later in the taste to balance out the hops. Spicy. Medium body with only a slightly bitter finish for a beer with such high IBU. Looking forward to drinking this beer again.
