lusikka (6354) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
650 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper golden colour with a white head. Aroma of rye, bread, biscuity malts and grass. Flavour of rye, biscuity malts, grassy hops, strong citrus, floral notes and some caramel. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sticky, floral, bitter and a bit musty. A bit musty because of rye, but the hop profile is still excellent. Great.

Ktwse (2089) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Bomber from Mikkeller & Friends. Pours pretty much clear light amber with thick white head, nothing special so far. Take a sniff, however, and that changes. Lovely aroma of light pine, floral, heaps of tropical fruit, light caramel. Taste is sweet with a light hoppy bitter backbone. Lingering resin hoppy finish. Body is medium with soft carbonation. Not entirely sold... A very good beer, for sure, but had kind of expected more, especially after having been introduced to Alpha King, Dreadnaught and the brilliant Zombie Dust this weekend.

dmac (4091) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2013
22oz bomber via trade. Poured a solid looking orange body with an average sized full foamy off white head. Aroma of rye spiciness, citrus fruit, bread crusts. Medium to fuller bodied with average carbonation and a long lingering bitter hop finish. Flavor of mango, light rye seeds, pineapple, tropical fruits and dry medium toast. Good stuff.
