Bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks! Poured a clear orange-yellow color with a small, wispy head. Aroma was some tropical fruits, solid malt backing to this one. Flavor was notes of toffee, malt, resin hop character.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lightly hazy, orange gold color with a small, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange, citrus fruits, pine, light tropical fruits. Seemingly typical 3F aroma that I hadn’t had in a while. Taste of citrus, pine resin, tropical and some citrus fruits, with orange, and grapefruit bitterness in the finish. My only complaint is that I wish it were fresher. Still, very nice.

Bottle sample at the beer vs. wine tasting at Aficionado’s on 2/23/13. Pours a clear, yet chunky gold to amber color with a thin off-white head. Malty sweet nose with notes of spicy rye and hop. Malty flavor with spicy rye character and oniony hops in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a darker orange to red color with a beige head. Aroma was fruity tropical hops, and rye, booze and caramel. Flavor was much the same, good balance of fruity hops and malt, not over the top bitter, booze is a little hotter than I would have liked but still a pretty solid beer.

Thx to kermis @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 65 cl. Bottle sampled. Bright amber orange, big fluffy white head. Wonderful full pine nose, light caramel and spices, great hops, nicely sticky resin,… Taste is very juice grapefruit, some pine, almost soap, great hop profile, very light caramel, touch citrus, rye, bitter spices in the back, bitter zesty soapy pine,… Oily body, very easy to drink, nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated hazy orange colored body. The strong aroma was rye and malty. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of rye. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

22oz bottle. Lived up to the hype and then some. Brighter in color than I would’ve thought. Sweet great merge between an IIPA and a Rye. Really clean golden malt actually, not so thick on the caramel and chocolate which usually accompany the style. Big citrus balance. Awesome, a true Rye IIPA, not a hoppy Rye.

Pours hazy golden-yellow with a short white head.
Aroma of rye, grapefruit peel.
Taste is a rye malt, citrus hops.
Deep, rich rye flavour over a well balanced hoppiness.

22 ounce bottle. Lots of carbonation in pour. Urine like aroma. Big bitterness and high alpha hops. Pretty intense and bold. Slight malty character.
