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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. A color of reddish copper, little white head. The aroma contains citrus fruitiness, some floral elements and exotic notes and a fairly noticeable malt background. Taste is initially very light sweet, later bitter and drier. Aromatic, citrus and grapefruit-flavoured hoppiness is prominent but also malts feature with a hint of caramel. The palate is delightfully smooth, medium bodied and perfectly balanced. Very rich, balanced and drinkable APA from Beer Hunter’s.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, many thanks to Finn for this beer gift. A rocky off-white head that receded steadily over an unclear orange coloured body. Good lacework to the glassware. Fruity nose, mandarin and pale malts. Flavour of tropical fruits leading to a dry bitter ending with citrus peels. Natural soft carbonated. Smooth in the mouth. Pleasant to drink (Tromsø 02.08.2014).
