Aroma: Floral, spicy, slight citrus.
Appearance: Medium amber with nice tan head.
Taste: Nicely balanced peppery spicyness with some caramel and citrus. Less overpowering than some others with the rye.
Palate: Medium-light body with medium carbonation and an interesting finish that leaves a little pepper on the tongue.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Dimmig bärnstensfärgad vätska med lågt vitt skum. Doftar söta frukter, jordgubbar. Kåda och pepprig smak med en sötma som väger upp. Beskan hänger med länge.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber colored beer with big white head leaving lacing. Aroma has rye, pine, resin and peat. Flavor is piney and herbal bitter and creamy rye bready sweet. Palate is quite thick with quite soft carbonation and feel of bitterness. Finish is strong with heavy bitterness. Aftertaste is dry, grapefruity and rye bready, a bit soapy and acidic. I would like some fruityness – perhaps it’s left to the other side of the Atlantic.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep copper with a decent foamy off-white head that stays for a bit. Nice lacing. Aroma of pine resin, hay and grainy malt. The rye gives it an earthy taste with a bit of sweet spice. It also balances nicely with the hops. It’s bitter, but not overly so. It does give a nice tingle to the tongue. Medium mouth without a lot of carbonation. Definitely a solid beer as you would expect from SN.

Very nice clear amber pour with a sizeable off white head. Great combination of spicy rye notes and citrus on the nose. The flavor follows suit with great balance. Slight bread notes emerge as it warms. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of citrus, weak coffee, nail varnish and a hint of vomit. Flavour of wood, grapefruit and green leafy hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Easy drinking but a bit dull - strange aroma, too...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice golden and slightly reddish color. Very thick white head. The aroma is ipa-ish. The taste also lacks the typical bitterness. Still quite a bitter aftertaste. Surprisingly flat palate for the foam it produced in the beginning. Overall I would say a good neutral IPA with something specific in the taste that i have difficult to describe but i quite like.
