3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from icehawk. Thanks! This pours a hazy gold color out of the can with a thin eggshell head. Minimal lacing. A fresh citrus and floral scent has me looking forward to drinking this. Thereís tangerine, grapefruit, mango fruit noted. Light lemongrass and biscuity malt. Going down this is rather light and clean. Some gentle bitterness strikes the palate and a touch dry in the finish. Mostly citrusy hops here, as noted in the aroma, with subtle notes of grass, biscuit, and rye. Honestly, the rye could be missed if not for the name of the beer. This is one of those hoppy refreshing beers that can probably be consumed in fairly large quantities, which is okay by me.

Keg @ Closed For Business. Hazy deep gold with an eggshell white head. The nose is really bright. Loads of lemon and fresh citrus fruits. Mild underarm, gym locker. Somewhat chalky lemon poppyseed cake. Earthy grain. A touch spicy. Light carb, medium body. Pleasing stuff.

Slightly hazy orange-yellow, frothy white head. Somewhat subdued aroma of citrus, grapefruit, peach, pale malt, and hay. Mild sweetness rounded with a smidgen of orange peel bitterness in the back. Crisp, smooth, and light-bodied. Very well done.

Can at White Horse Parsons Green. Hazy amber lasting white head. Lots of hops on the aroma. Still some toffee oxidisation. Hard to do this fresh. But still the hop finish is stunning. Just kicks ass. Sherberty spritzy just alive finish. Lovely grapefruit aroma. Funny. Itís still not fresh fresh but itís still pretty good.

Iím a big fan of hoppy ales, with that being said, this rye pale ale is absolutely delicious! Citrusy, grape fruity and the palate feel is superb.

0.355l bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Itís really cloudy this! The color of the claw is deep and almost brownish orange, it also has a small but nicely lacing white top. Just love the fruity nose here! Itís just amazing how fresh and hoppy this smells. Iím actually sitting here laughing Iím enjoying it so much. Peachy citrus and a overall lovely sweetness. Havenít nosed anything like this in a long long while, and Iím just stunned over how much Iím enjoying it. The taste has to be a bit of a letdown compared, and it unfortunately is. In the mouth it feels light oily while the carbonation is just above average. Itís nice and fruity, but it doesnít have that freshness that just kicked me in the teeth when smelling it. Mild peaches, a good amount of grassy bitterness with ripe fruits in the back. Ends kinda minerallish and lingering grassy bitter. All in all its not bad at all, and that aroma was just magic! 16.01.2014
