3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Glowing honey orange in color with a small islandy and sidesticking white little top. On the nose it’s not to extreme but hoppy, some citrus, light sticky and malty. Think it a bit too cold. After a while it gets more fruity, red apples and in general more sweet. Loaded with piney hops this. The mouthfeel is thick and powerful while the carbonation is more gentle. Sticky flavors, more sweet red apples, jam, marmalade and a strong hoppy almost stingy aftertaste. Nice juice! 04.05.2013

Bottle from unknown place. Pours brown with a thing brown head. Has some of that spicy on the nose. Rye’s a bit more prominent on the tongue with a bit of hop bitterness on the finsih. Solid but not blowing my socks off.

December 2012. 22 oz. bottle. Fantastic RIPA in any aspect. It doesn’t get much better than this. Big bold flavors, plenty of hops and fruit. Dark amber color with a white head. Bravo!

Bomber. Sure as hell won't confuse this Rye IPA with Alpine Nelson. Rye is fairly faint. Hop profile isn't terrible but fairly subdued.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy reddish orange, thin but dense white head. Clan, fruity aroma, with hints of pepper. Taste is very clean, dry and woody. Some peppery hops, some other spicy notes.

65cl bottle shared @Kaisla, Helsinki. Deep golden in color, smooth, thick white head. Aroma of ripe exotic fruits like kiwi and passionfruit, gooseberries definitely in there as well, coming better through in the flavor. Really interesting hoppy flavors with exotic fruits, gooseberries giving it some spicy notes and punch. Rye rounding it up, making it very smooth. Really lovely IPA, made my day.

Hazy gold pour under a tall, off-white head.
Aroma of juicy malt, citrus and pine hops and a touch of spice.
The flavor is well balanced between the malt sweetness and the hop bitterness.
Some distinct fruitiness going on here too.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber in color with a small head. Very fruity juicy ripe fruits, some passionfruit and kiwifruit. Feels incredibly smooth. Fruity taste, some tropical fruityness and light bitterness. One of the better ipas i tried today. Incredibly easy to drink. Refreshing too.
