2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer has been named after fellow beer blogger Ari "Arde" Juntunen. Not a Ratebeerian but the beer hunter like we are.
Slightly hazy golden color, small white head. Light fruity aroma, hints of pear. Medium-bodied. Sweetish fruity, slightly grainy flavor. Some late bitterness and alcohol sweetness. Short bitter finish. Not their best IPA, tacky flavor or then this was not the best keg.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Bruuveri, Helsinki
Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Mild aroma of dark fruits, grassy hops, malts and hints of caramel and berries. Taste is quite sweet and malty with notes of bitter English hops, caramel and hints of fruity hops too. Long lasting bitter and sticky finish with hints of sweet fruits and caramel. Okay, quite hoppy but a bit onedimensional IPA.
