@ 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 (1015) - 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 (9191) - 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!

Jon3s (4) - - MAY 20, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2015 IBU 100 and you’ll definitely notice the bitterness. tropical fruits, herbal notes, tar, pine tree and grape fruit. Enjoy with a good goat cheese or old Gouda.

Saeglopur (1633) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 16, 2015
500 ml bottle from my European Local Swap 2/2015 sender VastActiv. Thanks Janne!
Copper, hazy body, with a small, creamy, yellowish head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, stone fruits, pineapple, biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, lemon zest, pine, stone fruits, black tea, biscuit, some honey.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, piney,

Tasty. Pretty strong, with a zesty and piney hop bite, but well balanced by a full malt backbone. Not as easy as other IPAs, pretty filling, but really enjoyable.
