2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Brown colour, small head. Smells nice - hops with citrus fruits. Taste has, well, lots of hops and some malts. The nice citrus aroma changed into sourness of the extensive amount of hops. At least in my mouth this was very dry. I think it went bit over the top. Nice experiement though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark red hazy body with heavily lacing slightly off-white head. Nose has grapefruit and other citrus fruits, lots of pine and some caramel. Taste is is strobg and sweet at first and then turns quite bitter. The finish is very long and soapy. Carbonation is fairly soft and the palate is rich and syrupy. Overall very nice although it could be a touch less sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brown beer with an off-white soapy head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruity and citric, piney and caramelly or toffeey malty sweet. Taste is slightly fruity, very bitter as well as soapy and piney. Mouthfeel is oily, sticky and little thicker than medium. The finish is warm and smooth, not really intense. A pretty solid West Coast IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours brown with a yellowish tinge, a medium-sized head. Aroma of fruity, slightly piny hoppiness, some exotic fruits appear, especially citrus. Taste is initially fruity - featuring orange and tropical fruits like mango - with a dry and bitter aftertaste appearing later and making the taste quite long. Hoppiness is strong but not over-powering. Smooth, medium bodied palate. Rich hoppiness, nice bitterness, smooth and full enough palate - the standards of a good IPA are more than reached. A great beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish brown, meagre head. Citric and fruity. Medium sweetness in the beginning. Heavy bitterness, that lingers a long time, but stays balanced. Probably the best IPA in Finland, this really is what IPAs can be at their best.
