CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared by nuplastikk: pours a clear bright golden with a stringy lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and sweet light caramel with lots of fresh hop flavor and resiny bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

lusikka (6874) - 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.

66 cl bottle @ olio
Aroma has fruity hops, peaches, hay and hints of apricot. Flavour has hops, gooseberry bush, fruity notes, some nettles and hints of caramel. Too stuffy but otherwise good.

Shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has big citrus and fruity hops, herbal notes and spicy rye. The combination is very nice. The flavor has citrus and some tropical fruit notes, herbal, spicy rye with some back ground sweet caramel malt character. Medium plus bodied with moderate bitterness. Very solid all around. I want more.

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle and served in tulip: Pours a deep golden hue but with a ton of floaties which was not expected, lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma and lots of rye notes along with resiny, piney, and lightly citric hop esters. Pepper and clove with a touch of caramel and Melanoidin malts. Great nose on this beer. The taste is spruce, pepper, grapefruit, clove and rye bread over a layer of biscuit and aspirin... not sure what to make of it but strangely I like it. The mouth feel is more medicinal and chalky note and a tad boozy. The least favorite part of this brew. I like many things brought to the table but still feel something does not quite mesh together. Muddled and astringent as hell.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery amber, hazy, thin to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Pale sweet citrusy and fruity nose, hoppy too.   Semi-sweet citrus and pith on the tongue.   I thought it would be more floral or fragrant, but seems fairly average.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweet pith and citrus peel on the finish.   Doesn’t seem like an IIPA, perhaps a bigger IPA, but its not overly hopped or on the malty side.   Well crafted, but to me, very much middle of the road.   Thanks to fatknitty for the bottle!

Bomber to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells GOOD; HOPPY!!! Tastes like it smells with that nice rye tingle on the back end of the finish. A first-class DIPA!
