3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark nut brown color, small and mostly vanishing off-white head. Strong American style hops and yeast in the nose. Quite flat mouthfeel. Nice hoppy bite, which starts slightly sweetish and ryeish but evolves to long bitter finish. Good IPA, I would say that this has some influence from late Stadin Panimo ..

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Hazy dark brown colour, small white head. Aroma of rye bread! A bit watery and too hoppy, lacking balance. Original though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@SOPP, Helsinki) Very murky dark amber-brown with a small, bubbly head. Sweetish, rye-malty aroma with hints of licorice and flowery-aromatic hops. Strongly hoppy (British-style, quite similar to Special London Ale) flavor with ryebready maltiness. Long, bitter and dryish finish. Medium-bodied, bitter palate with medium carbonation. Not quite as refined as the best Nordic brews, but surprisingly pleasant, tasty and balanced for a Finnish one.
