50 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori, #350: BBE 04/2012
Fresh and sweetish aroma with hops, vanilla and fruits, especially pineapple. Refreshing flavour is hoppy with fruitiness and pineapple. Hops do not linger in the aftertaste, which is quite light actually. Good IPA, but a bit short-tasted and slightly thin for a 7.2% abv beer.

On tab. This was a very smooth ride all the way. Large creamy head that mostly lasted. Great golden color beer with good display of lacework. Aroma was really pleasant with notes of citrus, light fruity hint of passion fruit, grapefruit and a solid base of malt, caramel and light toffee. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat dry texture. Well balanced bitter and sweet flavor. Somewhat oily and yet dry bitter floral hoppy finish. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 Bottle, 50 cl. Pours cloudy orange, nice white head. Aroma is pungent hops, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, really heavy and thick ’syrupy’ hoppiness which reminds me a bit of the Mongo IPA. Hints of malts and a bit of vegetal notes which is a bit weird. Taste is massive hop profile, fresh pineapple, orange and tangerine fruitiness, quite a big body for an IPA, some maltiness and a really outstanding balance in the taste. Tastes better than it smells.
