oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottled (from Prisma, Vaasa). Slightly hazy orangeish golden clour with a small white head. Aroma is bigtime floral and fruity hops with quite much horse blanket to it. Flavour is fruity and floral hops along with some bigtime bitterness as well as mild sappy and wooden notes. A bit soapy notes as well with some slight oily notes in the palate.

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 330ml KKK. Clear golden color, small white head. Light exotic fruity, a bit dusty aroma. Light-bodied. Gooseberry bushes hoppy flavor. Quite typical BD IPA flavor. This is a watered down version of Punk IPA.

bierkoning (10381) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Blonde, hazy. Grapefruit, pineapple and oily hops in the lovely aroma. Thin but well hopped. Grassy slightly herbal citrus flavor. Tasty!

Benzai (8535) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 Bottle [thanks to Hermod / Euro Swap 5] shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Hazy yellow to golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma is superb: loads of hops, grapefruit, citrus and lightly malts. Taste is lightly malty, again with loads of hops, citrus, grapefruit and nicely bitter. A bit thin bodied, suitable carbonation. Nice!

Rune (8189) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2014
330ml bottle, batch 181, many thanks to Finn. Airy white head, remaining, bubbly layer. Misty golden body. Poor lacing. Grapefruit peels on the nose, mid-sweet. Fruity taste of orange, grapefruit and pumpkin. Short, dry bitter ending. Soft on the swallow. Easy to drink. Satisfying and food friendly (Tromsø 05.01.2014).

Scopey (7057) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle at Aberdeen BD tasting Xmas 2013. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is crisp, pine, grapefruit, citrus peel, gooseberry and some lightly sweet pale malt underpinning it. The taste is crisp, bitter, fresh pine, grapefruit, lemon peel, light soap and a bit of underlying sweetness to balance it out. Finishes up dry and lightly bitter. Light-medium body and moderate, fizzy carbonation. Decent and very drinkable, but lacks the kick of regular punk IPA IMO.

rosenbergh (7026) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2013
330 ml bottle. #181. BB 06/08/14. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Very nice fruity hoppy aroma with sweetness and malt. Typical BrewDog flavour with lots of fruitiness, mild bitterness and malty balance. A bit watery. Very drinkable.

lusikka (6343) - 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.

laiti (5755) - 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.
