In bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of rye, caramel, lime, and melon. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark orange coloured and unclear. Has a white head, mostly lasting, looking good. Heavy hoppy aroma, spicy, almond, fruity too. Flavor starts sweet, finish heavy bitter, a bit unharmonic. Dry, creamy texture and soft carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Fish & Beer. Not really meeting my expectations thinking that it’s a cooperation between BeerHere and Brewfist. The smell doesn’t reveal any of the hops from New Zealand that it proclaims to contain and the taste is good, but weak. There are hints of citrus and a smooth bitterness. Foam fades away quickly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and orange peel with a touch of pine and a floral, maybe elderflower, note. Dry and hoppy flavour with some bready malt, and fruity and resinous hops. Bitter like an IPA. Undeniable family ties to the Christian Skovdal rye IPAs, which is definitely a good thing. Great hoppy beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Tap @ Oluthuone Leskinen, Oulu 16/10/12. Pours a slightly dark yellow with a large white head. Aroma is strongly of grapefruit and pine, some berriness there as well. Taste is strongly grapefruit and pine as well, some caramel to balance it. Superbly fresh and refreshing. Palate is perfectly stingy, medium, quite carbonated. Amazing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Oluthuone Leskinen, Oulu. Hazy orange beer with white, lacy/creamy head. The aroma starts intensly lemony/orangey, floral, perfumy and slightly resiny but it somehow loses some of this hop freshness quite soon. Still, aroma remains tempting. Flavor is bitter, but also quite heavy on pale caramel sweetness. It finishes bitter, but mostly in a herbal way. Maltiness is too caramelly and lacks bready/biscut notes and cripiness. Medium body, smooth and fresh texture with light carbonation.
