Tan/amber appearance, nice but nothing remarkable. Faint aroma of rye, citrus and hops. Taste is balanced.. not a ton of rye, but it’s there.. citrus hops. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2016

Bue en mars 2014. Bon goût houblonné et subtilement poivré venant du seigle. Amertume sèche et douce. Bien balancé. colui72 (977) - HONG KONG - SEP 20, 2015

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber with medium white head. Aroma of hops, grass and freshness. Taste was bitter with a bitter finish. Hopmaestro (1625) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: Nice aroma of caramels and resin, whole pine cones and a sweeter kind of peach. Taste is full bodied with malt, bitter orange, harsh rye and sharp bitterness. I love it. Homer321 (5000) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft. A very pepper and spicy forward nose hits me up front. Followed by a toasty bready crusty malt. Crackery. Almost sweet caramel. Taste is more toasty and caramel with a hint of burnt bread. Decent but overall a tad lacking in hops for my taste. Sigmund (7389) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2015
355 ml bottle, vintage 2013, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. BB date 31.05.2014. Amber colour, moderate off-white head. Aroma of fruity and piney hops, rye bread and pepper. Hoppy and peppery flavour, grapefruity notes, but also sufficient malts, again with hints of rye bread. Good now, but probably even better when fresh. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle: Deep copper, slight hues of red-orange with decent clarity all around. Small bits of sediment hanging in suspension, capped with a creamy eggshell froth. Aroma is super dank. Heavy pine, hop oil, skunky reefer, bitter tangerine citrus, a small touch of toast. Flavor has a larger rye presence; more toasted, spicy, & drying. Still full of oily, resinous hop juice, dank hemp, white pepper, herbal & musty earthiness, a small touch of bitter citrus rind & lemon peel in the finish. A bit of caramel maltiness lingers with the spicy rye aftertaste. Good stuff.
