4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Drinking date: 18 February 2014) The beer looks delicious: hazy amber/orange colour with a thin layer of foam. The aroma is even more delicious: a bit sweet, very fresh, fruity, especially pineapple, strawberry and a bit of lemon. The taste is bitter and sweet, pretty sweet. You also taste/feel the warmth of the alcohol. It tastes really good. The taste is also bitter enough to compensate the sweetness. It leaves a nice bitter aftertaste, with a warm feeling of the alcohol. With some IPA’s the beer is good but it leaves a nasty bitter aftertaste, but with this beer that is not the case. This beer leaves a pleasent bitterness in your mouth. The mouthfeel is also really good, a bit thick, so not too watery, which is good. The carbonation could have been a little bit more, but that doesn’t really matter. Overall I am really enjoying this beer, and it is one of the best IPA’s I have ever had. That’s why I give it the total score of 4.3! :)

Grunge-etiketti. vahva bittermäisyys ei ole niin paha. Ihan juotavaa tavaraa tämä on. Uusi lasi ja yh-iskänä 4 päivää.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From notes: November 7, 2013.
A: Grapefruit, pine, a bit earthy and some other tropical aromas happening as well... fairly certain I recognize the simcoe hop presence as well.
A: Pours a clear deep amber color with a off-white head that thinned to a ring.
T: Alcohol is overwhelming, drowning out the simcoe hops and everything else. Subtle malts try to present themselves, but just get muted.
M: Medium bodied, smooth and warming.
O: Alcohol was overwhelming.

(Backlog) Light golden in color with an average white head. Aroma is of citrus, floral and light herbs. Taste quite bitter with heavy floral notes, some citrus and light notes of cleaning fliuds.

Golden, slightly hazy, with decent foam. Fruity aroma and taste. The alcohol level can be noticed, but is well balanced by the full taste and moderate bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Such a great beer, big step-up compared to its little sister from Brewdog. Loads of hops, although not overpowering, and not too much of that bitterness that sometimes spoils some of the other simple or double IPA. Definitely a house favorite.
