Based on the brewery’s Summer ale from 2013 this brew is very similar but with a bit more punch on every aspect. Nice fresh hoppy aroma is dominating but the overall taste is still quite balanced.

oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2014
Draught@HBF2014. Golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is mild tropical fruits along with some bready and grassy notes. Flavour is tropical fruits, nectar, mild sweet malts, some bready notes as well as quite big herbal/grassy bitterness in the finish. Decent although the hopping itself clashes a bit.

laiti (5545) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is hoppy with exotic fruits, some piney tones and caramel - feels like an American IPA. Flavour is hoppy with fruits, caramel, some pineapple, hints of pine needles and resin. Not very typical golden ale; some hops and a grainy feeling from that style is present though. Becomes somewhat sweet at the end of the glass.

(Keg at Bryggeri Helsinki, 20140301) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and it lasted long. Aroma had fruitiness, grass, herbalness and spiciness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, spices, herbalness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A tasty brew and a very different golden ale.
