Bottled 330ml@VWPBF, tnx bierkoning!
Hazy amber color, beige creamy head. Peach, berries in the aroma. Light to medium bodied. A bit tartish, some glue, resin, some spices. Kind of odd.

(Bottle). Nicely sweet scent with soft tangy tones. Interesting contrasts between sweet and acidic in the form of aromas of raisins and brown sugar mixed with tangy fruit juice. The taste is tangy but smooth with hints of fruit and slightly bitter yeast. Unfortunately, the yeast also has a peculiar taste of plastic that is not pleasant. This lowers the overall grade. A tip for anyone trying this beer is that DO NOT pour in the sediment in the glass, for therein is much of the plastic taste.

Leighton (18720) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at Borefts 2012 - Bodegraven. Pours hazy amber with a fine white foam head. Ripe orange in the aroma, some toasty bread, light caramel. Medium sweet flavor with lots of caramel, tons of bready malts, ripe citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Toasty sugary malt finish with sweet bread, a bit more ripe citrus. Simple but OK.

olio (9376) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
33 cl bottle @ wPBF’13.
Pours hazy golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma of hops, some sour fruits, yeast and spices. Flavor of apricot, yeast, spices, sourish citrus fruits and goose berries. Reminds me of a great finnish home brewer with the yeast profile and sour fruity notes. Definitely not an IPA but seems to be an accidentally nice sour brew. Nice.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
33 cl bottle (7%) @ wPBF. Bottled 03.10.2012.
Aroma has hops, soapy notes, citrus and biscuits. Flavour is rather tart with citrus and spicy notes. Also some vanilla and berries. Quite odd stuff, quite far from IPA. Closer to a sour ale.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
330 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma of dried apricot, mango, horse maneuver and sourness. Flavour of sweetish malts, sour berries, lemon juice, floral notes and some mango. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Quite messy.

Bottle at Monks Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden/amber beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy caramel aroma, fruity grapes, pine apples, floral, some leather notes. Fruity sugary flavor, sweetish cloying, grassy notes. Sweetish fruity finish, a lot like a ton of fruit cocktail.
