4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Appearance- golden and clear, plenty of bubbles clinging to the glass, lots of carbonation. 1-2 finger off-white head which settles down. Aroma- lots of it. Pine, grapefruit, loads of hops, peach, apples and lemons, citrussy. Taste- big slap of hop bitterness. Plenty of hop resins, juicy tropical fruits, orange peel, bitter lemon, pine, grapefruit. Still has a slightly creamy maltiness underneath the hops. Pretty full in the mouth, with a long finish. Very nice indeed.

33 cl bottle at Siilinpesä. Hazy yellow orange color with lacing white head. Very bitter taste. Notes of pine,grapefruit, citrus, grass. The intense bitterness smoothens out after awhile. Maybe still abit too bitter for my taste. Needs something to smoothen out the taste. Tasty IPA nevertheless.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cL. 7.2%. An opaque yellow orange beer with a medium white head. Thin bubbles. Medium persistence. Fruity aroma (tropical fruit, blackberry, blackcurrant), herbs, resin. First light sweet, then heavy dry bitter. Medium body and texture. Soft carbonation. Lasting dry bitter finish. Overall, intense fruity and resin aroma. Pleasant for this summer days. Heavy bitter but just 1 level of interpretation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange colour, with a medium yellowish head.
Smell is very aromatic, nice exotic fruits notes. Taste too, very fruity, orange, grapefruit.
The finish is bitter, but not so much as they say, and for me that’s better.
Really a good IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at BrewDog, Camden on 16 Dec 2012. Poured a lightly hazy pale golden, with a dense white head and some lacing. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops, zesty citrus and straw. Really dry on the tongue, with some tropical fruits in the mix and grapefruit. Finish was bitter resin, dry cereal and a small amount of caramel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, Greece.
Pours an orange golden beer, slighty hazy, with a small off-white head, with okay retention, leaving almost non existent lacing on the glass.
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, very appealing.
Great taste, lots of pine, hops, a bit of resin, grapefruit too, very bitter with the bitterness having a really long duration.
Medium body, good carbonation, good dryness on the palate.
Great beer, lots of hops and bitterness, highly drinkable, if I didn’t have to get up early I’d have stayed for another.
