mezr (112) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip. Reddish brown, slightly hazy, with a thick tan head that laces beautifully. Citrusy hop aroma with malt base. Taste starts with malts and then the hops come through with a nice bitter, followed by spiciness of the rye. Full body, thick and almost creamy on the palate. Dry, bitter finish.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - OCT 25, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere color mogano, con riflessi rossicci; la schiuma molto pronunciata, compatta, spumosa, discretamente persistente e di buona allacciatura. Al naso gli si pu attribuire certamente una componente di segale, nonch di malto, insieme a profumi agrumati di pompelmo. Buona quantit aromatica di luppolo, mentre la maggior parte del naso dominato dal malto caramellato. In bocca risulta molto simile: malto caramellato, note agrumate, amaro di luppolo aromatico, punte piccanti di segale. Nel retrogusto la componente amaricante del luppolo pi pronunciata, pur mantenendo la spina dorsale maltata e di segale. Scivola via leggera con una bassa carbonazione, nonostante 8% di ABV ed il corpo medio.

tricksta_p (3756) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is thick rye malt, hops, pine resin, ripe fruits, caramel, soft herbal/spicy notes, hint of toffee. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and bitter. Body is above medium, nice thickness and balance. A prime specimen of rye IPA, bittersweet and rich with a sturdy rye body.

Cerveja com amargor extremamente elevado com leve percepo do lcool. O aroma simples e podia ser melhor trabalhado, mas o paladar compensa.

Very old bottle, maybe 2011. Cloudy dark brown with thick sediment. Caramel, chocolate, coffee, resin, alcohol. Heavy bitter and medium sweet. Low carbonation, probably some lost in cellaring. Long, spicy and bitter finish. Reminds me of mud cake. This is a big, big beer.
