esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottled. Slightly hazy, pale amber color. Thin creamy head. Floral and citrusy hop nose rich in caramel malts. Some canned peach notes. Malty flavor, but not too sweet. Slightly mineral finish. Bitterness seems a bit low, probably due to age. Round, almost full bodied, slightly flat texture.

GIJOE (1042) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours dark amber with a finger of tan foam that stays long. Nose is bright, floral happiness with a twist of grapefruit. Taste is bitter, but not outrageously so, on a bold malty backbone. Full body, vigorous carbonation. Quite good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BiffNilsson (270) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2014
Mörkgul färg med en vit tunn skumkrona. Doften är liten men god. Doftar av framförallt ananas. Smaken är söt och även här känner jag ananasen. Fyllig och fin men med för liten beska i min smak. Efterbeskan är bra.

Bomber. Citrus, pine, caramel and a bit of pineapple. Light stickiness. Smooth drinking and well balanced. Tasty brew but a bit mild for an IIPA.

zimbo (861) - SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Typical nose for the style but with a tad more sugar and more orange golden colour. Half inch head which is glossy leading to some decent lacing. Fairly gassy start but the body is mainly sappy as well. Not bad buts lacks some definition and individuality.

beertholomeus (1535) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a copper color with a khaki head. Dank hop, caramel, citrus, biscuit, malt and some alcohol aroma. Rich hop, caramel, citrus, pine, biscuit, malt, and alcohol flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a bitter taste. Hoppy finish.

LOVEMESOMEIPA (10) - - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Sublime in San Marcos. The appearance is nice but the aroma had a chemical smell. Not getting the bitter taste of an IPA. I think they need to dry hop this IPA.

VastActiv (4978) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Bottle from local BevMo, Sunnyvale, California. Colour is deep orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, piney, hints of grape, hops and malts. Re-rate Tap at Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki. Colour is deep orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Massive piney, some fruits, caramel, hops and malts. Nice surprise. Points 3.6 -> 3.8. One of those rare beers which are better in Finland than in USA.
