jookos (2313) - FINLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle. Yellow hazy appearance. Whoa- really strong cat pee-ish gooseberries hoppy whiff. A jammy, green berry, super hoppy nose. Body is lightish. Bitter, dry. Has a bit of grainy maltynesss, Some staleness in there unfortunately. A bit of caramel, but not much. Pretty nice though for the abv. Lacks a good smooth body, but super hoppy at least. Feels like they’re trying to hide the (in craftbeer- standards) shitty body by pumping loads of hop extract into the brew. I love hoppy beer, but only when it’s followed by proper caramelly sweetness. This feels like drinking cologne.

Andy_ (722) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Golden orange clear beer with a nice white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is really nice. Tropical fruits such as mango and peaches and also caramelly sweetness. Taste is fruity and bitter, with little soapiness. Mouthfeel is little thinner than medium with moderate carbonation. Long and smooth finish. Well balanced. I tested this vertically with Punk IPA and didn’t see much difference. Punk IPA is fuller and has a bit more soapiness.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
330 ml bottle. Thanks laiti!
Pours a slightly unclear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of citrus, weak caramel, biscuity malts and grass. Flavour of strong citrusy hops, biscuity malts, grass and grapefruit. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes lingering bitter, citrusy and dry. Drinkability is very high and overall a refreshing brew. Refreshing and as tasty as Punk IPA, when fresh. Great.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
mile (3032) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel, tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some tropical fruitiness and some caramel, some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some tropical fruitiness and light caramel, some grapefruit hoppyness. Fruity and watery pale ale - too much caramel for me.

Hermod (3307) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
33cl bottle, BB 06-08-14. Unclear dark orange, lacing, white head. Aroma has floral, grapefruity and gooseberry notes. Fresh. Flavor has grapefruit, malt, floral notes. Fruity, hoppy bitter finish, long finish. Fresh, really good APA. Light to medium bodied. Best beer you will find in the Finnish supermarkets at the moment? (< 4.7%).

laiti (5753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06.08.2014
Aroma is quite close to Punk IPA with gooseberry bush and fruity notes. Flavour is fruity with some funky and odd note present in the aroma side too. Hay? Biscuit? Also some caramel and distant herbal notes. Refreshing and nice - and does not feel watery.
