This is by far the most hop forward beer we have ever produced. Heavily late and dry hopped, this Hopslinger version really packs a punch.

Very hazy dark amber beer with a tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and and a little dry with fine carbonation. Mild creamy malt, semi dry. Trace of toffee. Dry citrus - lemony with lesser generic fruits. Minerally dry finish. Satisfying if a bit dry and heavy on the malt.

oh6gdx (20330) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Bottled (from AbM). Deep orangeish/pale amber colour with a big white foamy head. Aroma is tropical fruits, some zest, floral notes as well as some caramel and mild spicyness. Flavour is tropical fruit juice, some caramel, mild yeast and a bit resiny and sprucelike notes in the finish. Nice IPA, without overdoing it.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

BBE 30.10.2013 - Pours dark orange with a large white head. Aroma of exotic fruity hops, hints of lemon, sweet citrusy and caramely notes. Taste is sweet, juicy, caramely and slightly hoppy with some notes of exotic fruits. Finish is dry and a bit harsh with juicy hops, some resinous and fruity notes. Quite juicy and fruity, but slightly unbalanced IPA.

olio (6174) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
33 cl bottle. BBE 30.10.2013.
Pours dark amber-copper color with a large frothy head. Aroma of pine needles, some resiny hops, pale malts, caramel and fruits. Flavor is rather harsh bitter with malts and fruits, some hops and goose berries linger on the aftertaste, faint nutty notes also. A tad too malty and harsh, otherwise decent.

Idiosynkrasie (3806) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark orangey golden to amber colour, some chunks floating around, with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Cautious piney and herbal hop aroma. Taste is cautiously herbal hoppy, in the finish bitter, minimally soapy and with a sulphuric onion touch. Not so good.

Hermod (3169) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 1, 2013
33cl bottle, BB 30-10-2013. Poured hazy dark amber with a thick white head. Mango, orange, very fruity hoppy aroma, toffee in the back. Flavor has grapefruit, kiwi, pine and spicy notes. Very bitter hoppy finish with a lingering fruityness. Medium bodied. Great brew, refreshing and tasty. And only 5.6 abv. Well done!

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a orange copper colour with a white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy hops, herbs and grass. Flavour of strong citrusy bitterness, floral notes, biscuity malts, dried apricot, pine and some salty licorice-like notes(!). Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, floral and rather refreshing finish. Good drinkability and very refreshing. Great stuff.
