Draught @ Bruuveri as "Brewer’s Special Blue Skies IPA" , 7.0%. Aroma has tropical fruits and malty notes. Flavour has fruits, cereal, minerals and some menthol. Too sweet and stuffy for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy amber with minimal white head.Taste starts with tropical, crisp citrus and sweet exotic fruits, which quickly give way to the hops and strong alcohol. Excellent combination of sweet, sour and strong! Aroma is surprisingly light considering the rich taste, but the same elements are present as well. Some sweet malts also distinct in the backround. Medium body. Long bitter finish.

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)
