3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Viisi Penniä, Helsinki
Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of sweetish floral hops, caramel and hay notes. Taste is smooth, stingy and caramely with dry bitterness and hints of floral hops. Finish is smooth and sweetish with surprisingly smooth hop bite. Quite nicely hopped, but a bit light bodied IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Reddish almost. Nose has piny hops, red berries (slightly candy-like), caramel. Body is quite dry and bitter, but doesn’t feel harsh, quite filling actually. Pine needles, some earthyness, dark caramel. Berries in finish. Quite an alright IPA, lots of flavour. Is a bit rough around the edges, some leafyness in the hops. But easily drunk nontheless.

Draught. Pours amber in color with a thick and creamy head, leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Fruity, some pine and a bit nutty in aroma. Smooth. Some pine and a bit of toffee like sweetness in taste. A bit nutty with some lemon notes in aftertaste and has some sweetness in finish.

Thankfully i opened this over the sink, which is actually very rare - exploded. Tons of foamy head but it sand and laced very nicely. Lacked a strong aroma, didn’t even really pick up the simcoe. Taste is pretty nice of sweet caramel and grassy hops. Some graininess, and some orange citrus. Not bad by any means, not very stand out either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky dark orange with mountains of pillowy head. Hop heavy aroma, with citrus/resin/grass leading the way, along with mild paint thinner. Flavor is oddly lacking, may not be entirely fresh. Bit muddled.
