3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought @ systembolaget. Pours cloudy reddish golden with a huge frothy offwhite head that leaves lots of thick soapy lacing on the glass while slowly dissipating. Smell is fruity, malty and tiny spicy with sweet rye bread, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, black pepper corns, overripe tropical fruits and subtle hints of popcorn. Taste is bitter, tiny fruity and tiny spicy with pumpernickel bread, grapefruit juice, pine needles, resinous wood, black pepper corns, freshly cut grass, unripe mango, brewers yeast and hints of roasted malts. Mouthfeel is tiny round, tiny watery, slightly astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with pumpernickel bread, grapefruit juice, unripe mango, pine needles, freshly cut grass and resinous wood. Quite good in this state, a very solid rye IPA fresh I’d imagine.

Quite honestly, I was caught off guard with this one. Pours a murky orange with a brown tint. Smell is big candied oranges, grapefruit, hint of tropical fruits, decent malt backing but not to take away from the juicy hops, slight spiciness. Taste is a bit more subdued. Still bright citrus hops, with a sweet malt backing and just enough spiciness to let you know that rye is in there. Then the spiciness and bittterness linger for a bit. As I said I was caught off guard. This is nice. Real nice.

Bottle from SBL (SP): Poured a hazy golden liquid topped with a thick lather of foam cap head. Aroma is musky with a smell of sweaty stenchy hops and a minimal balancing of bready malts that reminds me of Fat Tire. The beer is weak with puny hops barely nibbling on the bitter taste buds of my tongue while a delicate presence of rye malts carries the character of this beer through. Certainly a baby rhino.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bombers from Capone’s, Whole Foods PM, and Blue Dog. Pours turbid orangy with 2-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is big bready rye malt, spicy floral peppery hops. Tastes rye malty, spicy in a black peppery sense, with notes of coriander, bread, and hops. This one would go well with rye bread and a wedge of Vermont white cheddar.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, tropisk frukt, citrus. Frisk, sträv men ändå rund och len med tylig beska med smak av örter, grapefrukt och maskrosstjälkar. Gott.
