4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very hoppy and bitter taste. Plenty of citrus and herbs in aroma. Dark brown color, cloudy, very minimal head. Full body, thick feel, average carbonation, long finish. I liked this one a lot.

Bottle, from Spiegelau IPA glass. Small ochre head, medium lacing. Hazy copper. Big citric hop aroma with grapefruit, grass and spicies. Dry and thick palate, medium bodied. Taste is dominated by grapefruit but has good maltyness and bitterness. Very good IPA. One of my favourites of the style.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 Odotin karvaampaa, mutta humala on pehmeä. Pitäisi olla enemmän happoa. Suomalaiseksi kuitenkin todella mainio. Kylmänä kannattaa juoda.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favourite IPA’s. Full of flavour and aroma, nice appearance. Well balanced even with this much hoppiness: the malty body is still there. This beer is not just hoppy trickery, but a truly nice special IPA.
