Bottle. Sweet, nectarine aroma. Tanned head, no lacing. Caramel colour. Mid taste bitter notes, finishing with a watery taste. Bit of spiciness both from the carbonation and hops. Definitely a mild IPA, a great gateway beer.

330ml bottle (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki)
Pleasant grainy aroma, some aromatic hops too. Rich orange, tiny head. Sharp palate, a little fizzy. Sour taste, this is not so good, somethingís spoilt. Soapiness remains in the retronasals and finish.Probably pretty OK how itís supposed to be, but this is not how itís supposed to be. Didnít throw it, itís not that off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
No BB on bottle. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a two- to three-finger off-white foamy head that collapsed fairly quickly and although left a suds ring it did not lace at all well. Yeast sludge settled out and this detracted from the beerís appearance. Light to moderate carbonation with small to medium sized bubbles forming trails. Aroma of fruity hops and moderately sweet malt Ė quite pleasant and the hops is not over-powering. Taste of sweet malt and a mild floral fruity hops bitterness Ė not as bitter as I was expecting from an IPA. Light body, bordering on watery. Light, soft, dry mildly bitter finish. Mellow for an IPA.

Deep gold cloudy ale with low gas slight head. Great fruit nose, fresh and light palate with fresh fruit notes too. Yum like a fruity Saazs hopped golden.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice golden with a finger of white frothy head.
Nose is interesting. Itís got a mild grapefruit character, melon and peach and just a hint of malt sweetness.
Taste is quite different too. Thereís a bit of citrus in there, a slight amount of melon and peach. The hop flavour is in an interesting combination, but ultimately thereís not enough of it.
This is a bit of a cliff beer. It has a very fizzy mouthfeel and the finish is slightly watery. Thereís just a hint of melon flavour after youíve swallowed, but generally the taste is gone quite quickly.
Slightly disappointing, and Iím hoping I can find some other beers with Summer in them soon.

330ml bottle. Orange amber colour, foamy off-white head and aroma of malt caramel, melon, citrus, spice. Taste is malt caramel with melon, peach, earthy woody pine and light citrus grapefruit bitterness, plus some biscuity notes. Soapy mouthfeel, light bodied, well carbonated, dry bitter finish. Quite OK IPA.
