FatPhil (8581) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2013
Tap (Kitty’s, Helsinki )
Pale orange, tiny keggy head. One of the most blackcurrant leafy aromas I’ve ever smelt. Fruity, and clearly with a grungy Belgian tang. Not all the way to saison grunge, but part of the way there. Massively fruity in the mouth, but the raw earthy malts are there too. Palate is sweet and would be smooth if it wasn’t for the quite harsh carbonation. Some sips are quite lovely, worth a 7, but others are quite unpleasant, very dirty, and harshly cat-pissy. Some spicy savoury food aspects, far eastern, or even subcontinental. A tough one to call, could be anything between 2.5 and 3.3.

Meilby (6361) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2013
Draught @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, pine, citrus, orange and peach. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long piney and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Marstonlad (330) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Tap at WilliamK, Helsinki. A clear color of bronze with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is overall hoppy and very fruity - citrus, orange - with some herbal and sweetish yeasty notes, probably from the Belgian yeasts. Taste is crisp and fresh, easily drinkable. Bitterness is medium; hops bite, but not very deep. Mostly fruitiness and some grassy notes in the taste. Light to medium body with average to lively carbonation. Nice, easy IPA but I prefer a bit stronger and richer ones.

tiong (3069) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Draught @ William K Sello, Espoo

Pours clear golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of spices, fruity and grassy hops, malts and earthy yeast. Taste is yeasty, fruity and spicy with notes of grassy hops and lemon. Finish is fresh hoppy, grassy and spicy with hints of fruits. Quite tasty and balanced Belgian style IPA.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2013
Draught @ Bishops Arms Gustav Adols Torg Malmö. Slightly unclear orange color, medium sized white head. Aroma is lightly malty, very fruity, hops, orange, mandarin. Taste lightly malts, hops, again very fruity, orange, citrus, lightly grassy, nicely bitter. Don’t really get that Belgian yeast which I think is a good thing. Medium body and carbonation. Good stuff!

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Draught@kittys. Light copper coloured, filtered. Fruity hoppy nose- oranges, currants, green berries. A hayish peppery maltyness. Body is dry, medium light bodied, cleansing. Lots of hops, peppery yeasty flavours, a bit of brewdogian ultraclean caramel. I like the fruityness, the slight green hoppyness. And being brewdog&super clean, I find it quite enjoyable. Basically a peppery version of punk ipa.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
(Keg at Kitty’s, 20130831) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had black currant leaves, fruitiness, caramell and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, cough mixture, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy and bitter. The aroma promised more but the taste was quite displeasing.

rlgk (9430) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2013
Draught at De Klomp, Linköping. Clear golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Yeasty spicy aroma, grassy, citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, some pine. Yeasty flavor, hop, grassy, herbal, spicy, earthy notes, grapefruit, citrus, some rubber notes. Decent, but I prefer the original Punk IPA.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Keg at BD Shoreditch. It pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is complex, grassy, piney, oranges, light grapefruit and a slight yeasty touch. Mild carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour is hoppy, dry, bitter. Especially grassy and a bit piney. The Belgian yeast strain lends the beer some softness and a light fruitiness. Quite enjoyable.
