Towey1989 (2335) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Can at Suds & Soda, Derby. Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of rye, toasted malts, caramel, slight chocolate, pine, orange, some grapefruit, a hint of sarsaparilla and subtle spicy hops. Taste of rye, toasted malts, caramel, chocolate, orange, some resin, slight grapefruit, a little pepper and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A long, dry, toasted, spicy, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A great rye IPA, if you like bitter IPAs this is for you. Big spicy and resinous hops bursting through the smooth, rye and toasted malts with that hint of chocolate.

Oakes (16630) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2017
Dark amber, bubbly head. Very toasty, rye-influenced aroma. Deep rye taste, lots of brutal bittering hops, no compromise here with 80IBUs clubbing you over his head. Still, itís not a bad drink.

olio (9841) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2017
355 ml can @ Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany red color with a small head. Aroma is very resinous hoppy and caramel malty, rye, very subtle cocoa on the background, malts. Flavor is roasted malty, a bit light body, mandarin, dry rye and nutty notes, resinous hops, maybe faint chocolate on the aftertaste. Quite nice and balanced brew.

Heidbummer (474) - SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Keg at Hanging Bat. Pours muddy amber, thin laced tan head. Aroma of toast, slightly singed, some red fruit. Bone dry taste, a little thin and flat (suspect itís better closer to home, and I am off to Seattle next month ....) but nice spicy edge to it. Nearly very good.

AshtonMcCobb (6250) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2017
On keg at the Hanging Bat. Appearance - deep amber to brown with a lovely fluffy head. Nose - honey with some praline edging in there. Taste - more honey, going into caramel with hazelnut. Finishes in a praline note. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - interesting and good. Would I drink 20 pints ? No probably just 3 or 4.
