3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse, Tampere.
Pours clear golden-copper color with a small head. Aroma is quite fruity and hoppy, some orange zest and caramel malts also. Flavour is a bit too malty for my taste, caramel, resinous hops and hay, mild nuts and goose berries on the finish. Bitter malty palate. Nice aroma but too malty and nutty taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Hilpea Hauki, Helsinki)
Slightly hazy orange, tight bready head. Huge tropical fruit aroma, peach and melon. some gingery caramel too. Floral body, perfumey retronasals. Quite easy drinker, sweetish malts, tons of tropical fruit. Fades a bit quickly, sweetish malts, but hops disappear quickly, almost no bitterness. A bit too easy, a bit too throwaway.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden colour with frothy head after slightly exploding out of bottle. Immediate aroma of pine and grapefruit and perhaps a slight hint of malt. Pine and grapefruit flavours which lead into a bone dry and bitter mid palate, ending with a very subtle malt back note. Pleasant mouthfeel but a rather hollow flavour profile most probably due to only one hop variety being used. The least enjoyable of the single hop beers but an important part of a very interesting experience.
