4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark that orange with a thick white head. Has a strong aroma of pine, hops, malts and caramel. Taste is very malty to start and had citrus hops, pine, and grapefruit. A mix of bitter malt and hop aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Aroma of cantaloupe. Taste is bizarrely and unexpectedly sweet at first taste. Given name leads you to anticipate "lots of hops," taste ends up being kind of offy-sweet.

355ml bottle (Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2014)
Sugary sweet malty aroma, dripping with caramel, sweet fruitiness from the hops. Says "gonna be *way* too sweet" to be honest. Orange, small tight head. In the mouth, it nearly satisfies the prediction from the aroma, but subtly derails it, and sends it in the direction of "yum". Yes, this is super sweet, but the lemony citrus hops keep it sharp. Palate is smooth, but not quite slick, carbonation and bitter bite prevent that. Slips down easily, drinkability amaingly good considering the sweetness. Definitely in the guilty pleasure zone, as this isn’t my style at all. Citrus hops initially the attention-grabbers, but red peppery bitter hops have the last say, there’s a nice little warmth to the finish. For something so far away from the beer styles I like, this has hooked me, and I have to congratulate the brewers - you made a hater like the style briefly.

At first a fruity bittersweet taste, some grape and a bit honey sweet. A loooooong powerful bitter aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a large lasting head.
Nose shows heaps of pine and a fair whack of sweet clean malt. Pretty straightforward but still nice.
Very similar flavours but with some grapefruit and resinous notes along with a hit of booze.
Carbonation feels a bit full on.
