3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home- pours hazy pale orange, large off white foamy head. Nose is appetizing, pithy, earthy hops, rye and caramel malts. More of the same flavor profile with a little chewy notes but nice bittering hop bite on finish. Well put together rye ipa

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from Biernavigatie, 2013 version so at least 6 months old, large sample, served in a shaker. Pours a hazy golden to orange color with a big frothy off-white head, leaving some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and a bit onion and garlic from both amarillo and simcoe, a bit soft though, slight grainy rye. It’s easy to recognize the ingredients actually, which is quite a good thing. All nicely balanced, although hoparoma would probably be more intense with a fresher example. Medium bitterness, slight caramelly sweetness, some grainy rye again. Medium carbonation, medium bodied from the rye. Nothing spectacular at the moment, but well balanced and decent craftsmanship. Nice.

Nice rye spice notes in the aroma, blends well with the hops. The flavor also has that characteristic spicy note from the rye, and a great assertive hop character.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle, 7 % abv, served in a tulip shaped glass at Bishops Arms in Luleå. Clear amber coloured body, hazy last pour. Steady, bubbly off-white head. Mixed aroma of bread and citrus. Fresh fruit hoppy flavours with rye malt beneath. Mid-dry bitterness of citrus peels towards the ending. Fine bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Lovely IPA creation (kindly shared by djoeye, 25.05.2014).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 0.65L bottle ABV 7%;
vanilla-fawn dense head, rimmy lacings, clear amber body at first pour,
later pours cloudy.
Fruity aroma, mild citric hops, apple-malts, fruity rhye malts I mean, and strawberries.
Fruity bitter malts in taste, citrus, apple peel, fresh fully taste with some rhye bread.
Nice body in good balance.
Fine lingering finish with dark bread and some fruity bitterness.
This is well brewed, and reminds me that my favourite breads always contain rhye, which makes them fruity and good.
