Got this beer in a trade with Rohkey. Thanks Chris for this refresher!

Poured in my Struise glass this beer starts very well. Fluid a bit like darker tea and a nice broken white head with some very nice lacing. Pineapple in the nose, this is one hoppy bastard!

Mouthfeel is Ok but not spectacular. A very well made rye beer!
