Draught at Pikkulintu. Orangish amber, quite hazy, with scarsely any head at all. Citrus fruits and flowers in the aroma. Flavour also displays fruity notes, mainly citrus. Carbonation somewhere between light and medium. Quite dry finish.

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a fluffy big off white head. Very flowery hop aroma with a good punch of citrus and pine. Flavour is grape fruit, citrus, orange, caramel and light alcohol. The flowery saaz hop is profound and add an good spicy note to this great DIPA. Long piney flowery hoppy finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small, short off-white head. Lovely boozy hops on the nose, grassy, grapefruity & orange peel aromas. Nice citrus fruit sweetness, lemon sherbet & grapefruit, moving to piney, resiny bitter notes, some spice and a dry, slightly yeasty finish. Medium body and carbonation, a coating mouthfeel ending with a lingering grassy aftertaste. Great balance, doesn’t try too hard with one thing or another. A tasty drinking DIPA.

Bottle, 75cl corked. A hazy, orange beer with a small, off-white to beige head. Resiny nose with fluorine, some beefstock and lots of fruityness, quite a lot of grapefruit. Resiny hops and grapefruit in the flavor with beefstocky malts as a base. Some alcohol giving a nice warmth in the mouth. Full-bodied and almost astringently bitter. Lasting, bitter finish. A well composed beer for the hopheads. 090724

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 From a bottle at SB&WF 2009. Hazy orange golden, almost no head. Fruity and berryish hop aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. Nice lingering bitterness. Rating 8/3/8/4/15->3.8.
New rating, bottle (33 cl) from the Cracked Kettle. Murky orange, rocky off-white head. Strange phenolic aroma with a hint of smoke, some berryish hop aromas beneath. Semi-sweet with medium bitterness. Like a mediocre homebrew.
New rating from the Örepubliken tap takeover. Very nice tropical fruitiness this time, pretty much like the first rating.
Overall rating a mix between the two above: 6/3/7/3/12->3.1

It poured a hazy golden orange liquid with a small foam with big bubbles. Had a round smell of hops but it felt old and not fresh at all. Also felt a hint of toilette, maybe it had started to go bad? It tasted of grassy hops with a low-medium bitterness. Ok beer but a bit boring, I expected some more freshness and taste.
