3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazed pale orange with a 2 finger white head which recedes leaving sheets of lace. Lots of rye on the aroma, but the first scent you get is citrus hops. Sweet and spicy flavor. More rye with hop bitterness. Moderate bodied with a sharp, crisp palate. Bitter finish. Very nice, different.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is surprisingly mild, with hints of rye and citrusy floral hops. Flavor has a bit more punch, with some good hoppy bitterness and a much more present rye character. Lighter in body with a lingering rye dryness and a mild bitterness in the finish. Good beer, but I was expecting a little better for some reason.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with an opaque coppery to orange body that supports a nice looking light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up citrus, some lime, mango, lemon grass, a rye bread twang and a touch of peat. The taste is similar with grapefruit, tangelo and mango fruity hoppiness mixing with pine and a yeasty sort of faint peat note. It has a nice juicy hop fruity flavor sensation that quickly becomes overshadowed by firm hop bitterness to resiny hops as well as some mineral notes and a bit of biscuit like malts. Nice hoppy brew. It reminds me of some of the European IPA or IIPA I’ve had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Poured clear medium orange with a sticky off-white head.. looked great. The aroma picked up lots of spicy rye plus fresh pine and citrusy hoppage over soft biscuity malts.. very assertive, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found almost syrupy honey and biscuity malt at the core, with peppery rye, pine, and grassy bitterness around.. finished peppery and a little hot. Medium-bodied with high-ish carbonation on the palate.. only flowed decently.. aiight.

Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Låg doft av mango, ananas och citrus. Avtonad sötma och beska med ett rivigt avslut. Troligen kommer det från rågkornen

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber with an insanely massive white foam head that settles very very slowly. Big, bold, assertive tropical fruit flavors assault the nose: peach most of all, but there’s grapefruit there along with kiwi, bananas and lemon. Tasting it reveals the same sort of tropical fruit, but somewhat more subdued but very well balanced. Peach dominate, but lemon, apricot, grapefruit and kiwi vye for attention. Hay and dew grass can be found as well. Aftertaste is nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness, tropical fruit and some lemon rinds. Quite good.
