Bottle from a trade with rosenbergh. Pours unclear amber with a small creamy white head. Aroma of piney and resiny hops, powerful. Taste is well balanced, more shy hops than suggested by the aroma, high carbonated, weak dry mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as a gift from Espoo. BB 03/2015. Hazy darkish amber with white head. Head laces and retains nicely. Nose is sugared and dries pineapples initially, then as it’s stood for a bit, lemon, blood orange and grapefruit; slight spiciness and herbal notes in the background. Taste is beautifully balanced fruity bittersweet with piney and resinous notes, some yeastiness when warmed. APA aroma, IPA taste. Body and carbonation just enough. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, no head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some piney - grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, light caramel and faint fruitiness, piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dry, faint caramel, lots of piney - light citrus hoppyness. No head + hazy = looks like sahti. In the finish hoppyness gets harsh/soapy. Finish totally lacks the fruitiness found in the aroma. There are better ones from Beer Hunter’s.
