3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear orange, very think off white head, head is very dense, it could retain a bit better, laces nicely Aroma: grass, piney, orange, nice but kind of faint Taste: hoppy, grass, piney, bitter, citrus Palate: lively c02 burn, moderately bitter aftertaste Taste: this beer started to overflow with foam as soon as I opened the bottles, a good basic ipa, it’s good but if it lacks anything it’s complexity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled. Golden colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity hops, some flowery notes, mild earthyness as well as grass. Flavour is quite much the same. Not a very powerful or interesting IPA

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange with a white head. Mango, peaches and cloudberry marmelade on the nose. Taste starts with mildly grassy bitterness and builds up to stronger pine needle bitterness. Body is a bit on the watery side but it’s therefore good for thirst. A pretty solid IPA!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Lovely fruity hop aroma, peaches and pineapple in syrup. Simple palate, a little watery, aggressive carbonation. Pleasant sweet biscuity malt body, and the hops are there still. Finish is fizzy, and has a nice gentle bitterness. Rather watery for an IPA, and the carbonation is way too high. but we know that many yanks confuse carbonation for bitterness, so they’re probably exploiting that stupidity. Definitely needs all the crap to be poured in in order to fill out the palate, and give it some fuller candied peel zing in the taste. An adequate IPA.
