look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color and has some fine particulates floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a film of bubbles on the surface, a patch of bubbles in the center, a thin collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy hops.
T: The taste starts out with initial flavors of citrusy hops, which are quickly followed by notes of caramel malts. Spicy rye begins to kick in towards the back of the taste and lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the taste of this beer to have a really nice balance between the caramel malts, citrusy hops, and spicy rye. Each of these seemed to be blended in perfect proportions.

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light spicy rye notes with some nice citrus hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by citrus hoppy notes with well-balanced bitterness and some light spicy and peppery notes from the rye malt. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation. Very enjoyable beer that I wouldn’t mind drinking on a regular basis.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Pours murky beautiful orange with a medium large off-white airy, but still a bit compact head that leaves rather nice lacings.

S: American bitter but even more floral hops brings grapefruits and oranges and in the back pine. Dryness from the rye, kind of bready.

T: Rich floral hops gives this a tropical-fruit-salad-vibe - really nice; pineapple, grapefruits, ripe oranges, peaches. Bitter hops together with the bready rye balances and makes this pretty awesome.

M: Long bitter tropical-fruity aftertaste. Body is medium but bone-dry. Carbonation is held to a very low level.

O: This is a fantastic example of floral hops galore, balanced by rye and bitter hops.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The colour is amber (23 EBC), the liquid is hazy. The low off-white head sinks quickly into a thin ring. No lacing.

The smell is raw and hoppy with some citric flavours (grape fruit), dried exotic fruits. Some tart chemical flavours. Rye bread and dough. Rubber and plastic in the background. Hints of alcohol.

The taste is bitter. Some exotic fruits (lychee, orange, pineapple) and citric notes of grapefruit. The sweet flavours fades quickly., giving room for tart notes of lime. Quite a lot of alcohol, with slight hints of solvents. Medium body. The aftertaste got notes of dark bread, bitter hops, green bananas and sour candy. The long finish is bitter.

The carbonation is strong with lots of medium sized short-lived sharp bubbles. The liquid is semi-smooth and a bit dry.

A rye that focus on the bitter hops only. More lika a DIPA.

33cl bottle. Pours a dark amber, with a tan head that gives way to a sticky lacing. Smells of caramel and dark fruit. Tastes sweet and malty, with a thin hop-bitter component underneath.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy and golden with lots of soda like carbonation. Topped with two fingers of glassy off white head containing foamy bubbles.



S: Tropical fruit, pine, red peppers, onions, dank, papayas and mangos.



T: Orange candy, tropical fruit, cereal malt, hot peppers, big bitterness lingers on the tongue. Evergreen forest.



M: Medium resinous body, soda like carbonation that finishes like foam. Relatively dry overall.



O: Got this at Beer Box in Chiang Mai, drank in Kunming, China on April 6th, 2015. Alcohol is really well hidden, relatively dry and smooth with a big amount of spiciness and bitterness.

The beer is hazy copper amber, has a bubbly off-white head, leaving much lacing and has good curtains.

Smelling mainly sweet fructose citric, grape-fruit, lemon, but also hoppy pine resin nuances. And some cheese.

Starting sweet toffee and rye bread, grape-fruit peel, pine needle tea.

Medium low carbonation, oily and slick, a big body, a warm dry finish.

Extremely hoppy but not extremely bitter. A very balanced and good American IPA (on the border of DIPA), not as sweet as most. That is good in my book.

This IPA has a bronze/copper color with a slight haze and a white dense head. Looks inviting in the glass and has medium carbonation.

The aroma reveals the heavy hoppiness of the beer and seems a bit sour.

It has a good malt body feel but the hops gives it a not so pleasent dry impact.

The taste itself are of heavy fruity hop character and a tremendous bitterness. This feature I think best balanced with some finger food. The full malt taste ads to the complexity of the beer and makes it more interesting.

Overall a beer with a lot of taste, but not so tasty.
