Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Dark amber color, steady beige head. Fruity, woody aroma, evident Galaxy. Light to medium bodied. Citrusy, fruity, but a bit dry flavor. Slightly one-dimensional (as it is a single hop beer!) but decent drink.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown sugar and tropical fruit aroma. Not much head out of the bottle. I like the lightness of the fruit characters but a bit too sweet of a malt body. Not enough lingering bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - Single Hop Series - 4.8 % ABV, at Punavuoren Ahven, 20131025) The beer poured amber and quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, spices, mild herbalness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, spices, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. A balanced but a bit musty beer.

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.
