Clear orange beer, nice creamy white head, little stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: fruity, caramel malts, gum ball, exotic fruits, sweet mango. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: fuck yes! Very fruity start, bit floral, citrus, exotic fruit explosion, bitter and piny, bit resinous. Aftertaste: fruity, mango, piny, bit of honey, sweet malts, hoppy and bitter finish. Lovely stuff!!

teorn88 (3023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
33cl bottle from the brewery tap room, London. It pours a hazy copper color with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is full of fresh resiny hops, with notes of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, rye bread and candy sugar. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a slight tart dry finish. Notes of caramel malts, citrus peel, light plastic note, tea leaves, grapefruit, hoppy piney bitterness. Medium bodied with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, the taste delivers slightly less than what the aroma anticipates but this remains a very tasty and balanced rye IPA nonetheless.

A great take on the hybrid. I’d prefer a richer, chocolatey body but that’s probably taste.

Draft at the brewery during RBESG 2014. Pours unclear amber with a tight, creamy tan head. The nose has some dry orange, pine and minerals. Light-medium sweet flavor with a clean mineral edge, light oily pine. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice citrusy hop finish with orange, some piney bitterness, some general citrus rind. Good stuff.
