0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is golden/amber, cloudy and the head is nice. No citrus hops here, just plain old bitter after taste in a big way.

kaserov (215) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2016
Color entre dorado y amarillo pajizo claro, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Aroma fresco, mezcla de lúpulo y malta, pero es como si el olor tuviera que atravesar varios espacios (habitaciones) antes de llegar a ti (no se me ocurre mejor forma de expresarlo, so sorry). También capto algo de cítrico, similar al limón (aunque puedo ser lima, si la descripción lo dice...). En el sabor se mezclan a partes iguales malta y lúpulo, pero lo que verdaderamente importa es el amargor. El amargor no domina el trago, llega lo suficientemente tarde como para hacerte disfrutar de todo lo previo. Y no solo eso, es un amargor seco (muy distinto al de la inmensa mayoría de IPAs; se nota desde el primer sorbo). Invita a dar un trago tras otro. Muy buena.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - OCT 9, 2016
5.7%ABV. IPA. Poured out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose is earthy and smells of mushrooms. I am intrigued almost immediately. Some really nice mildew-like funk. Mouthfeel is soapy. Hops are spicy, minty, cilantro, chervil, fiercely herbceous, aggressively grassy, hint of a slightly rounded broader palate suggesting wild scallion and shallots. Resinous finish with sap and epoxy with a hint of curing silicone. Palate has some salty, bready breadth. Almost gose-like. Finish is brief-medium. Goes on Favorites List!
