34,1 cl bottle (9%) @ lusikka, bottled 05/2012
Aroma is sweet with exotic fruits, gooseberry bush and fruit sugar. Flavour is sweet with exotic fruits, some fruit sugar, caramel malt and hints of alcohol. Rather typical American‐style DIPA Ė and too sweet for me.

[1420-20080530] Tap. Ginger spice cookie dough aroma. Slightly hazy, brown amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Yeasty plant material flavour seems like seaweed or flower notes. Medium body. Weird flavour, reminds me of something akin to rotting lettuce.

341 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of gooseberry bush, nettle and some sweetness. Flavour of strong bready maltiness, gooseberries, strong hops, spruce and sweet caramel. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes sweet, malty and bitter. Too sweet and malty for an DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is a sweet citrus and floral hop note, some toasted malts. The flavor is smooth and tasty without being overly bitter or aggressive; dry, sweet fruity malts, light pine. Enjoyable, something herbal as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy copper bronze with a well lacing off-white head. Dry, grainy, lightly toasted and hoppy aroma. Body is lightly sweet and caramely with some sticky toffee and a good, but not very potent hoppy balance. Not quite as extreme as some American versions, but a very drinkable double pale ale.

Draught, RBSG 2005.
Body is hazy medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (apricot, resin, grapefruit).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Not a lot of oomph or pizazz to be found here, but itís pleasant enough.

Slightly hazy amber, neat, fine crown. Soft , smooth ale , strong but silky hop accent , woody malt and well refined alcohol . Judging on aroma alone Brewmaster done solid job maturing this ale . Medium bodied , medium /fine carbonation . Bitter hops are very well blended with smooth alcohol. Very approachable beer despite its potency.
