3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Poured dark copper with a thick head, everlasting. Nice lacing. Grapefruit, piney aroma. Flavor does not live up to what the aroma promised, not really in balance. Flavor is very bitter, malty fruity and piney, but not very fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours a dark, hazy reddish brown colour. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits and peach. Flavour of pleasant hops with smooth sweet fruits and caramel malts. Very well balanced. Sweet lingering bitter finish. Tasty IPA.
500 ml bottle, new batch, fresh bottle.
Pours a deep murky amber colour with a white thick head. Aroma of gooseberries, grapefruit, dark mandarin orange, grass and heavy caramel. Flavour of smooth heavy caramel, mandarin orange, kiwi, grapefruit, floral hops, some gooseberries and strong yeast. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and surprisingly low carbonation. Pretty much the same as last time. Lacks carbonation and could use less yeast in the flavour. 7-4-8-4-14 3.7

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Bottle. Dark amber, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel, some tropical fruitiness, citrus - some piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel, light tropical fruitines, lots of citrus - piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Really nice well hopped IPA. In the finish hoppyness gets bit sharp - too much caramel for me.
