Picked this up at the beer store at the De Molen Brewery. Slightly hazy copper-amber pour with two finger head, decent retention, and nice lacing. The nose is spot on for an American IPA with lots of citrus, pine, and hops, with a nice solid sweet caramel malt base and just a touch of earthiness. The taste follows suit and is definitely reminiscent of the many great West Coast IPA's. Spicy, resiny, piney hops dominate, with tons of citrus, specifically grapefruit, but a bit of a tropical note as well, with just a touch of rye. The bitterness of the hops is tamed nicely by the sweet caramel malt, making this a pretty well balanced and highly drinkable IPA. The mouthfeel is slightly thick and chewy but very smooth. This is my first ever beer from Beer Here, but I have several more to try and can't wait!

330ml bottle. "Free Hops" clinics, indeed!

This beer pours a clear, medium bronzed amber hue, with a teeming tower of overflowing bullshit head, the kind wholly unnecessary in this quality control world of ours, which eventually leaves some weirdly decent patchy swaths of sudsy lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of peppy grapefruit, blood orange, pineapple, and overripe peach fruit, edgy pine resin notes, a spicy rye and caramel malt collaboration, and further leafy, somewhat perfumed hops. The taste is more sharply bitter grapefruit and generic orange pith, wet leafy pine needles, clammy caramel malt, a spicy, indistinct rye graininess, a touch of warming alcohol, and mild leafy, weedy hops.

The bubbles are rather plain and ineffectual, the body an adequate medium weight, and mostly pithy in its heady attempt at smoothness. It finishes off-dry, barely, the hovering piney, and reduced citrusy hops kind of smothering the lingering caramel malt in its version of an end game.

An agreeable enough RIPA, though the guest malt ingredient doesn't seem to have the normal staying power one might expect from yer average grain. Still, a hoppy affair, that much is true, one who's muddled first impression shouldn't be cause for anything less than an overall rosy appreciation.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy amber colour with a small yet smooth head. Poor head retention.

Malty sweetness with the clear spiciness that comes from rye. Nice piney and citrussy hops. Not bad at all.

Big, powerful hops with a nice dose of the spicy rye presenting as a slightly rough bitterness. Nice citrus.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A decent little beer. I don't mind this one iota though the bitterness is a little rough especially when combined with the flavour of rye.

500 ML bottle poured into a tulip
like a label. Good stuff.

A-- Pours a hazy, murky looking orange amber color. Basically a layer of off white film and ringed collar for head. Aggressive swirling got half a finger and pretty much that was it. Good spotty lacing associated with this. Lots of big carbonation bubbles in the film.

S-- Good malt body, spicy rye, pine, orange and grapefruit. Builds more as it warms and the rye adds a nice dimension to this.

T-- Lacks carbonation. Will say that much. Tastes a lot like hop water. Once again a nice carmel body followed by orange, grapefruit, and spiciness. Just nothing to lift the taste much.

M-- Medium bodied and light to little carbonation. Higher carbonated would really lift this well. A little watery in the front but after that pretty decent. Lots of overripe orange and grapefruit in mid and back. Finishes with bitter orange and grapefruit peel.

O-- Workable, but not as good as other IPA's out there. Carbonation would seriously work with this as would just add life to this. Flavor profile is right but just missing something to make this zing.

Pours a cloudy orange. Good head/lacing.

Smell is so Green Flash Imperial IPA. Is there Nugget in this? Subtle aromatic Thai cuisine spices; possibly bay leaf or curry leaf. Not a whole lot of malt.

Taste is more of that. Almost has a ricey note to go with the Thai spices. Bit salty and dry. I swear they salt this water.

Mouthfeel is nicely carbed and salty.

Thai-hopped, highly carbed seawater. Not bad.

A clouded amber brew, a very high warm off-white head with good lacing and curtains.

Smelling of butter, grass and grape-fruit.

Sweet toffee start, grass, nettles, hay and grape-fruit peel.

Medium high carbonation, small foamy bubbles, soft and oily, a good body and dry finish.

A full crammed hoppy brew, but I wonder if there wasn't British hops as well.

A 4oz sample @ Churchkey goes for $5. American IPA from D6.5% etoh, IBU 80...no wwonder I really like it! Reminds me of lil summpin summpin without the sweet ending. It ends dry. I am sampling this on an empty stomach...should be fun! Wings and mint balls to wash it down!

Danish beer. Love it. I feel my Scandinavian pride welling up. Ok, enough of that. Deep amber (amber, not red) and hazy. Good sign, hazy and hoppy often go hand and hand together. Lovely aroma of pine and citrus and sweet, slightly burnt caramel. Very nice indeed. Great flavour. Sweet and hoppy, not cloying or bitter. Long, smooth Pacific Northwest hop flavour. Bitterness is understated but performs it's task well. Overall a really nice IPA. Would gladly drink again anytime.

A - One finger of creamy, off-white head crowns the murky brown/orange body. Lace rings follow.

S - Interesting for IPA in that the malt character hits first. Toast and caramel. The hops kick in then with pine and grapefruit.

T - Vice versa. American hop flavours of pine and citrus, giving way to sweet malt, caramel and brown sugar.

M - Oily and medium to full bodied, a bit creamy even. Low carbonation. Bitter finish but in no way harsh.

O - A decent, interesting, balanced IPA consisting of US style hops and a strong malt backbone.

500ml bottle purchased from Slowbeer and poured into a 16oz schooner glass.

Pours a deep copper colour with a hint of ruby and a solid glow to it. It has a beige head of foam with a hint of yellow and manages some good streaky lacing with good head retention.

Smell is interesting, ever changing and diverse. Rye is the first hit, turning to passionfruit with a touch of fruit salad along with pine resin and then caramel.

Taste doesn't really match up what comes before. Pine resin is first, rye comes late and a distant second.

Mouthfeel is quite unique from what i have come across. The pine resin in the flavour provides some decent upfront bitterness. This is then wiped completely away in the mid and back end with an almost surreal smoothness. It reminds me a touch of real ale as while there is visible carbonation the feel is as though the carbonation is absent. Quite different, cool and intriguing. Is it what to expect and judge a Rye IPA on?

Overall a beer that isn't really the sum of all its parts. A real odd fit. Worth trying to see what you make of it. I'm still surprised at how this all works.

Another brew from this brewery with an interesting label and to be honest they are brilliantly done and definately eyecatching and the brew pours a deep ginger,orange murky non see through hue which has beautiful carbonation that leaves a thick creamy two finger that stays and leaves heaps of lacing everywhere,the smell is basically resin coated piney hops with a slight tinge of caramel and barley,it has a medium bodied well carbonated mouthfeel which suits and makes for easy drinking and allows the tastes of obviously piney hops,passionfruit,grapefruit,a tinge of light toffee to all make themselves known before being overwhelmed by that piney hop bitterness that really is the backbone of this drop which is noticeable from start to finish and for a hophead like me thats a good thing,overall this brew really showcases the hop without being totally overpowering and i could drink all night really nice cheers.

This is a great session beer - bitterness balanced by mouthfeel and flavour - (described by others). Not overpowering, well balanced. More on the piney flavour side. Very similar to Nogne Two Captains, actually. A good beer - recomended! (at Au$14.90 a bottle, locally, believe me, it's good - not great - but worth while.)

Pours a hazy honey brown with a fantastic dense creamy off-white head that falls slowly leaving very healthy amounts of lace. Doesn't get much better than this.

Pine branches and mint, with a touch of passionfruit and pineapple. Tangy butterscotch malts really prominent. Not overly complex but such an inviting mix.

Blunt and oh so dominant earthy pine and citrus rind, with moderate undertones of toothpaste and mouthwash freshness. I don't know whether it's the rye that lobotomises all the other flavours promised by the smell, but it's a serious coup. I'm quite disappointed actually.

In an almost ironic contrast, that is if my suspicions about the impact of the rye on the flavour profile are correct, it's effect on the mouthfeel is terrific. Whatever is responsible, the mouthfeel is viscous and luscious, with perfect carbonation. Mellows the bitter assault of pine and citrus beautifully.

How do I give this an overall score? So much promise from the appearance and aroma but I absolutely can't forgive the butchering of the flavour profile.

On tap at Plan B in Copenhagen. From notes.

A - Hazy dark brown with orange notes. One finger tan, fluffy head. No visible carbonation. Head remains with a great creamy cap and tons of lacing.

S - Juicy hops. Great fruity tropical sort of notes. Very interesting note I had trouble figuring out...possibly egg? Makes it interesting.

T - Same sort of character as the aroma. Eggy note comes out again with that great fruity hop character. Balanced with a generous amount of maltiness which I like.

M - Nice tingly carbonation. Slightly chewy. Medium to full body. Nice bitter finish. More body than I would expect for the ABV.

D - Not to shabby an IPA. That egg note is inoffensive but probaby a flaw technically. I did not mind drinking this and would probably seek it out again. Not over the top good, but good for the style.

Pours deep amber with a small head.
Nose shows loads of piney resin and marmalade along with masses of caramel and toasty malt.
Very similar flavours, very sweet with loads of caramel and piney resin. An assertive bitterness does a good job of keeping the malt in check.
Carbonation could be a bit higher. Very slick mouthfeel.

A: Deep golden colour, nice head (but not huge) and sticky lacing.

N: Sweet medium heavy tropical characteristics.

T: Sweet sticky bitter pineapple - quite enjoyable but a bit too one note.

M: Perhaps the best thing about this beer, allow bitterness to move around the palate well.

Not highly drinkable as a session beer but good for winter evenings.

Pours a burnished amber colour with dense beige head, modest size with really nice webs of lacing clinging to the glass. Slow bead won't revive the steadily-sinking head that is now a nice creamy crown. Pretty good. Everything's where it should be.

Smells interesting. Quite dry and fruity but somehow lacking. A weak fruit flavour with some blackberry and apple notes, slight mustiness and some cakey malt on the back. But yeah, pleasant as it is I find it a bit lacking.

Taste is quite malty, a lot of deep caramel notes with English toffee and a slight tartness on the mid, slight fruit notes with some tart apple and then a slightly metallic hop bitterness that isn't particularly strong and is actually met again by malty sweetness on the finish. Has a slight boozey character late, but I find the whole palate still falls a bit short; there's almost a hole in the midst of the palate, even though there's flavour all the way through. A bit of a tang on there, but it lacks boldness, and courage. Courage tastes good.

Yeah, nice swilly texture, pretty full with nice viscosity. Probably the best part of this beer is the mouthfeel.

But it's good drinking. It's lacking heart, and falls a bit short on flavour but certainly smooth and sessionable.
