Smooth balanced IPA. The rye gives a decent light spicy taste, the bitterness is in the finish. Above average mouthfeel.Very drinkable and recommended to seek out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Hazy, dull copper color with a huge khaki head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of pine, rye, caramel and mild light fruit.
Taste of pine, caramel, rye and light fruit.
Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization.
Despite the name, this is not a particularly hoppy or bitter beer. To me, it resembles a rye-based barleywine except without the big alcohol.

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.
