4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with passionfruit, citrus and melon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness and some sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Draught at Örebro Beer&Whisky Festival 2012. Golden beer with an offwhite head. Floral herbal finish, grassy, perfume, citrus, grapefruit, lemon, hay, banana notes, woody, some mint and raisins. Hoppy floral flavor, herbal, earthy, ryebread, woody, dry, hay notes, lemongrass. Not the best from this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, caramel, fruit, light grapefruit, and rye. It’s a transparent amber with a one finger creamy off-white head with decent retention and lots of clumpy lacing. The flavor starts with caramel and fruit. The finish has citrus, rye, and grapefruit. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, rye IPAs always seek okay to me but never great. This falls in that category...probably just personal preference.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mostly clear dark orange-amber color with a small amount of head that quickly faded. Aroma is rye, caramel, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and pineapple. Taste is mildly sweet, lots of fruit and spicy rye. Finish is lingering grapefruit. Mouthfeel is pretty full and a bit oily. I like the overall taste but the beer is very flat. Not sure if it’s an old bottle, can’t find a bottling date.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is a bunch of citrus, mild rye bread, some tropical fruits and a quite nice bready and toffeeish malty base to it. Flavour is rather similar, and though being rather hoppy it’s still very nicely balanced.

Bottled. Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is a bunch of citrus, mild rye bread, some tropical fruits and a quite nice bready and toffeeish malty base to it. Flavour is rather similar, and though being rather hoppy it’s still very nicely balanced. Mild nettle-like notes in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Cloudy deep golden body. Frothy, off-white head, diminishing. Aroma citrus, pine, rye, orange, straw. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean, dry in the finish. Clean and fruity — melon, orange juice, citrus — balanced with nuanced resin, pine hops. Body stands up with toasted grain malts. Finish with some rye twang. Nice IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange pour with a decent head. Aroma was candied hops, a light earthiness and a good bit of caramel. Flavors were sweet and hoppy with a rustic bitter finish. Not too shabby, but not my favorite. Mouthfeel was spot on, I think 7% is perfect for an IPA. Just the right amount for mouthfeel and consistency. Overall this was pretty good, would I buy it again? Probably not.

On tap at Buckeye, nose is wonderful tropical citrus fruits even a sweetness that is all good, too bad it tastes that sweet flavor, like canned fruit cocktail and then cheap childrens medicine, the finish is so medicine laden its hard to drink.. the nose though is amazing.
