@ Bishops GA. Malmö 15-8-6: Ganska potent doft med tydlig alkohol. Smaken är fyllig men med alltför framträdande smak av korn.

This is a sold beer. Aroma was nice. Iced tea, rye and earth. Pour was a nice dark amber/medium brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was very big and full. Strong iced tea flavors with heavy hops and strong burnt malt flavors. I think my taste buds associate rye with iced tea because most rye beers have that flavor to me. Dry earthy finish. Nice carbonation round this beer out.

Listed as an imperial IPA but it is definitely much more on the barleywine side of things. Very dark, rich caramel malt with some rye pepperiness to it. Hops are potent--spicy and vinous, but very much balanced by the malt richness. A good beer, but unexpected richness.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at falling rock tap house in Denver. Definitely eye in the aroma and some hops but subdued for green flash. Very dark for an IPA with a tiny ring of cream colored foam. Tastes slightly spicy, with rye and a good strong malt backbone. Very slight booze burn in the aftertaste. By far the least hoppy beer I have had from green flash but it is a welcome change in this beer. Great palate, thick and easy drinking at the same time. Green flash does so many good IPAs and there are some better than this, but road warrior is still worth a try.

Very much has the rye they mentioned and the color is as perfect. All mineral after taste but I didn’t eat anything and that could change it. Tap

12oz bottle from Good Spirits Co. Muddy brown, reasonable head. Pine caramel aroma. Sweet spicy chocolately malt flavour. Sickly rye alcohol aftertaste. Not for me.

Bottle: Dark gold color with a super hoppy aroma of juniper. Wow - a mouthful of juniper to follow. Awesome. My favorite kind of IPA.
