Henkk4 (28) - FINLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Hazy copper color. Aroma is citrus, pine and hops. Taste is grass, pine, and tropical fruits with some malty flavors on background. Medium body and light to medium bitterness for this style. Not too sweet but still quite refreshing for this style, which I like!

panzerwolf (258) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Caramel tones, quite a strong taste of alcohol (obviously, seeing the ABV!) coming through so that it’s mostly covered with the bitterness of pines and a very definite taste of hops.

JaroMantic (30) - - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle from Alko. Pours hazy, dark shade of amber. Aroma full of hoppiness, little citrus and pine. In taste the hoppiness is even more intense. Taste also features some earthy, grassy notes combined with sour grape. Palate is rich and lively, also surprisingly smooth, with long and quite bitter finish. The intense hoppiness is too overwhelming and makes this beer a bit unbalanced for my taste.

Marduk (6141) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2015
Tap @Poseidon. Clear amber color. Medium size, yellow head, stays. Sweet, fruity, caramel in aroma. Nice aroma. Sweet, fruity, malty in taste. Fruity and caramelly in aftertaste. Nice medium body. Very drinkable.

Nijstrom (280) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Citrus (grapefruit), tropical fruits, caramel and pine. Moderate bitterness and sweetness. Dry and bitter finish.

gyllenbock (7556) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle, thanks Wolff. Hazy dark golden with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, biscuits and some hay. Similar taste. The finish was bitter. A good one.

SirLimpsalot (3673) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
@ Basunen 15-8-29: Tydlig humle i doften. Smaken är rätt besk men rätt god. Mycket fin balans.

Settle aroma. Nice caramel color. Intense dry hopppiness . Crazy. Maybe too much for me. Roasty. Powerfull beer but only in right context.

anstei (1051) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a nice lacing. Slightly hoppy aroma, some fruit, interesting to explore. Very bitter taste, but suited really well with the rest of the beer. A beer as a good IPA should be!

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Conifers grow through caramel, as candied oranges move into earthy, piney bitterness in this effervescent IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam stays atop the misty amber.
-This tastes like a Corne du Diable from Finland.
-Mouthfeel is quite bubbly for the style.
-A rye-like spiciness is felt; probably my imagination.
-Flavor profile is balanced throughout.

Bottle. Thx Timo!
