Bottle, courtesy of - and shared with - Maltmisjonen. Pours a clear light amber body with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet grainy rye and cereal tones, caramel, hints of bread and pine. Taste is sweet bready tones, caramel, rye, pine and hints of resin in the finish. Medium oily body, soft carbonation. Nice and sweet grainy beer, but IPA? Really?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an amber color. Light lacing. Not much rye on the nose but some floral hops. Not a bad IPA but not much flavor from the rye either. A bit disappointing

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small but thick foamy head that fades normally and leaves some nice lacing. Lots of rye bread in the aroma with some caramel, pine, and citrus. Taste is not as good as the aroma. Decent flavor but very rough. I think it’s just too much rye for me. Very little sweetness and a strong bitterness. Spicy rye finish. Overall, I think the caramel mixed with the rye is weird here. It still does have a great aroma and appearance. I could see some people loving this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with decent near white head. Bottle is a few months past its prime, but still pretty damn solid. Sweet, grapefruity citrus nose and flavor. Some lemongrass bitterness on the tail. The spiciness of the rye has faded, but it is still there. One of the better rye beers i’ve had i would say.
