3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins grow through caramel malts in this simple, bitter IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy pale amber.
-Straightforward barley sugar notes are tasted.
-Carbonation is prickly, which enhances the bitter finish.
-Hop aromas and malt flavors weren’t that well defined.
On tap at Café Tre Bror, Voss.

Drinking from tab.
Peaches, fruity aroma.
It’s a clear, orange beer with a small white head.
Some bitter in the taste, but not that much for an IPA. Not really fruity either. Citrus.

Pours a rust color with a fluffy off white head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is leafy, lightly malty, and lightly sweet... fairly hoppy, generally fine enough.
The flavor has that cool not overly sweet but still has a bunch of honey flavor to it thing. It’s mildly bitter, floral, lightly melony. Overall it seems dominantly a honey forward beer with is sort of delicious, but not really something I wish for in an IPA.

Tap at konttori, tampere. Little hazy deep golden color, white head. Aroma is malty, fresh hops, sweet notes. Malty body, fresh hops, dry end. Little bit too malty, but fresh hops saves a lot.

Tap@ahven. Copper clear. Piney, herby hops with a floral tone, crunchy malty caramels. Some tropicals. Nice full well bitterd body. Piney hops, but quite well balanced. Like it. Not overly hopped, but slightly bready.

Tap (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Nice hoppy aroma, decent IPA. Watery palate, carbonation detectable, not a positive component. Taste follows aroma. Boring, heading to APA mashiness and stickiness. Dull IPA, but niot actually bad.

On tap at Beer Palace, Oslo. A copper colour with a medium sized head. A floral yeast aroma. Flavour has hops, yeast and grapefruit. A fair alcohol burn. This seems more like a trippel than an IPA, but it was very enjoyable nonetheless.
