3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki
Pours clear copper colored with a tiny head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, caramely malts and sweet toffee. Taste is sweet and malty with a lot of caramely toffee, floral hops, grass and hints of fruits. Finish has a lot of floral hops, bitterness, grassy notes and sticky malty caramel. Okay, quite sweet and malty IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head, good carbonation. Good aroma of grapefruit and pineapple. Taste of grapefruit, resinous hop, grass and slight caramel. End taste is clean bitter, dry spicy cracker bread and slight pepper. A more traditional styled american IPA that would work well with a spicy meal like a curry.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Visual: Pours marmalade orange with large suspended bits, a very small dissipating head, thin ringed retention with spotty islands, slow sporadic streams.
Nose: super bright orange-grapefruit hop oils (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: thicker-crisp bite
Mid-palate: orange-mango hop oils, controlled zingy alcohol detection, (lvl-6-sweetness), yellow grapefruit, grassy-green hop cones
Finish: tongue numbness, toasty toffee barley malt aftertaste, long bitter hopped finish
Summary: A really, really nice showcase of a quality IPA. Balanced sweet grapefruity malts with a superb smooth-thick mouthfeel, and the hops are bold yet never overbearing. I particularly like the re-emergence of the barley malt at the finish. Very round and profound. Recommended.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours hazy golden with a short-lived white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, blood orange, some peach and loads of hops. Taste starts fruity, ripe orange and quickly gives away to big hoppy bitterness. Average carbonation, long finish, surprisingly drinkable with all the 200 IBUs. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle @ home.
- Aroma: aromas of peach, mango, grapefruit and tropical fruits.
- Appearance: good appearance. Light golden-straw color. Very light hazyness. Average head thickness. White head with good retention, made of quite big and irregular bubbles. Above average retention. Almost no Brussels’ lacing.
- Taste: light sweetness, medium-to-high bitterness, a little bit of sourness (a citric touch).
- Palate: light-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, average carbonation, very long dry finish of hop bitterness and some fruity flavors of peach, mango, grapefruit and tropical fruits.
- Overall: good appearance and good aromas of tropical fruits. Very long dry finish of hop bitterness and fruity flavors (grapefruit, peach, mango). Quite drinkable despite its theoretical above 200 IBUs, which are very good balanced with the malt sweetness. But even with that good balance, it is too much bitterness for my taste. Good Beer.

Så for søren. Her er der humlebitterhed nok til flere øl. Farven er mørk gylden med en hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er citrus, fyr og harpiks. Smagen er ligesådan.

Pours clear, golden, medium brilliant white head. Aroma is pine resin. It is sort of bitter, but not as bitter as one might expect from the description. Medium-full body, a bit sticky on the finish.
