UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Tap@Bruuveri
Slightly hazy yellow color, good steady white head. Weak aroma has fruityness - lychee, pine. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity flavor ... odd tropical fruits. Grapefruit, ginger, resin. Quite a mess. Perhaps not the best keg? (6/3/6/3/12 3.0)
Clear golden color, small steady head. Ryeish, grapefruity nose. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity bitterness, almost candy-like. Nice strong fruity IPA. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)

Draught at Bruuveri. Cloudy golden body with a small white head. Nice flowery aroma with some sweetness (honey?) and herbs. Extreme hops kick in, and the finish grows on you and becomes extremely bitter!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ the brewpub, Helsinki. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of hay, biscuit, grass and strong grapefruit. Flavour is strong with grapefruit, nettles, grass, caramel malts and some berries. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a crispy, bitter, malty finish with some sweetness. Good stuff, although not as fresh as I was expecting.
