Nice amber orange color, slightly hazy, with the hugest thick beige mushroom head you could ever get with great retention and leaving good laces.
Citrusy aroma with notes of grapefruit, spices and some caramel malt sweetness. A bit light, but the beer is not that fresh anyway.
Predominant flavor of grapefruit, lots of spices and rye, some toasted malts, caramels and a hint of pine. Dry and bitter aftertaste. It feels somewhat bitter than its 34 ibus
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.1% abv is simply not there.
Spicy, bitter and acid. Very tasty and balanced Rye IPA, rye matched well with its citrusy hop profile.

Teku glass.
A: Light beige, hazy with medium, short-lasting, white head, medium lacing;

S: Very nice medium citurs aroma - freshly squeezed orange juice. Low grasy and floral notes. In the backgrouns low piney character. Some hay, light malts and caramel aroma. It has also some funky character.

T: Taste is complex and really interesting. In the beginning a little bit sour and yeasty. Than some combination of medium bready flavors with medium citrus (orange) notes. The taste is taken over by rye spiceness. You can also taste some soapy character. Medium bitterness. Pretty long lasting, bitter aftertaste.

M: Ligh medium body. Creamy. Semi-dry. Medium carbonation. Very refreshing and quite drinkable. No alcohol warmth.

O: Really nice, malty, refreshing beer with strong hoppy character.

Cloudy copper in color with nice off-white, foamy head.
Very complex smell, with a pungent white grape aroma. Also oranges and figs. Very nice.
Taste follows with those fruity grapes and oranges. You can also taste the spicy rye.
Mouthfeel is great. Medium, soft body with just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall, great IPA. Works great with some Jimi Hendrix in the background.
