3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a Murky Orange, similar to other single hop ipa’s in this series.
Aroma. Pine needle aroma along with some tropical fruits.
Taste. Similar to aroma, piney taste with some slight tropical flavours and very little bitterness.
Overall. Normally i like a bit more bitterness in an ipa, but the lack of that seems to work in this beer.

Galaxy, galaxy, galaxy. Typical tropical galaxy aroma and flavour, but with the added addition of a good malt base. Nicely balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
