_angst_ (4342) - Göteborg, - DEC 22, 2012
355 ml bottle courtesy of my secret santa joeneugs. Pours hazy amber with a rather small offwhite head that leaves lots of sticky trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty, fruity, floral and hoppy with caramel, oily pine, resinous wood, grapefruit juice, nougat, toffee, alcohol, unripe tropical fruits, lemon zest, orange zest, crackers, black currant tea, cedar, dried apricots and hints of raisins in brandy. Taste is tiny sweet and bitter with caramel, oily pine, grapefruit juice, orange peal, resinous wood, biscuits, unripe tropical fruits, alcohol, bread, black currant tea, lemon zest, dried apricots and hints of minerals. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter, slightly astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter with bread, grapefruit rinds, oily pine, resinous wood, dried apricots, unripe pineapple, unripe mango, black currant jam and orange peal. Very smooth and balanced. A great beer!

Flarra Ölbaren Växjö. Mycket Rye Malt doft. Smakar krämigt Maltigt och perfekt jävla beska. Mycket lättdrucken balanserad med lite klassisk Rye kärvhet. Fin Maltig Dipa som påminner om Lervig Rye.

M4grem (12) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Very hop flavor. Good palate and linger. Rye helps with that of course. And that makes it pretty dry. Balance, for that reason is a little wicked, but that's IPAs these days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
