A murky honey colored beer with a smallish white head, some lacing. Very nice aroma: new leather shoes, dried orange zest, old grocery bags with green topped onions stored in them, that finishes with a mild pine. Taste is surprising in the lack of a hop bite. The mouthfeel is satisfactory with a pine aftertaste that turns plastic as it warms… the Achilles of most IIPA type beers. BenH (3436) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks Stu. Slightly hazy amber with big white head. Slightly dusty resinous aroma, grapefruit and orange. Taste of grapefruit, orange and pine. Quite fizzy, bitterand refreshing. Nice. dasdan (235) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2013

From a bottle. Hazy deep orange pour, with a beige head. Grapefruit and tropical fruits overlie a distinctly earthy malt note -- that’s definitely the rye. The rye really gives it a weightier flavor -- there’s some funk and a lot of character in here, and it finishes on an acerbic note, moving through tropical fruits to a super-bitter pine/grapefruit. Packs a huge flavor punch for being 7%. Quite interesting, and definitely tasty.

Pours hazy orange with low white head
Aromas are flowery, apricots, peach, resin, caramel malts
Hmmm. Interesting. Medium bodied, bitter and sweet. It has a caramel sweetness that is hard to explain. Pine notes and peaches. Nice! thomat (4090) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2013

22oz bottle picked up at Grassroots during RBWG weekend yngwie (17176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Appearance: Pours cloudy golden with a big off-white head and lots of sticky lacing
Aroma: Rye, spicy and grapefruit
Taste: Mild toasted malts, rye, citrus and some bitterness in the finish
A very nice IPA, tasty
Bottle, 22oz. A big, off-white head forms over an unclear, hazy dark golden to amber body. The aroma is resiny and citrusy with some maltyness. Bubble gum hints, lemon and a faint peppery hint. It could use a tad more bitterness, as the malty sweetness has too much room. Lemon, resins and some bubble gum and pepper hints. Full body, a tad too sweetish and carbonated, but very silky on the palate. Lasting finish with citrus peel and pine cones. A nice one indeed, although a tad too sweet. 130222 Meilby (11641) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
