Bottle. Dark amber body with a ton of bubbles seemingly. Thick offwhite head which doesn’t want to budge. Tight bubbles. Nose is super hoppy, but really pleasant to sniff. Oranges, peaches, sherbert, marmalade, melon, a little grapefruit and lemon, teensy bit of toffee - could sniff it all day, but it was made for drinking so here goes... Oomph! Alcohol hit! It loses a vast amount of that promised fruitiness and goes for an alcohol and malt bite. There’s a hint of ashtray, a little marmalade, a hint of that promised fruitiness... but it all comes down to that alcohol burn and ashtray. A little disappointing after such a sniffable ale - maybe I need this a bit fresher to appreciate?

Brandman (2610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Dirty hazy amber body, white head. Aroma has quite a lot grapefruit, some clear caramel. Surprisingly clear aroma for the looks. Flavour has some harsh bitterness and alcohol. Some yeast. Quite a drop. Unbalanced.

NateSeats (15) - Barlborough (nr Sheffield), Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Wasn’t sure what to expect from an Italian DIPA but I was pleasantly surprised. Strong hop aroma backed up with a good balance of malt, bitterness and back end hop funk. Not as heady as it’s US/UK counterparts but good all the same.

rosenbergh (9667) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2013
Draught at the Viisi Penniä, Helsinki, Finland. Murky amber colour with tiny head. Intense hoppy aroma of mandarin, exotic fruits and sweet strawberries. There's lots of sweet caramel maltiness there too. The flavour is very sweet but nice. There's toffee, strawberry, some berry desert, sweet maltiness, strong hoppiness and mild bitterness in the flavour. Very balanced. Tasty indeed. I'm really surprised that I really can enjoy a sweet IPA with strawberry notes in it. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Tasty as mentioned earlier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jookos (4594) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
Draught. Orange hazy. Nose is nicely fruity hoppy- tangerine, grapefruit, florals - with a bit of bready malts backing. Body is full, well bittered. Hoppyness, but a bit greener than the nose, caramel. Overall a good dipa. Not as clean as some - there’s some raw hop gland flavors, and a bit of yeasty residue, and the body is on the thicker side for the style, but a nice drink anyway.

RexTalionis (3372) - FINLAND - APR 22, 2013
Draught. Pours dirty orange in color with a small whitish head. Butterscotch, some light perfume notes and a bit more sweet toffee like notes in aroma. Wow, mouthfeel is extremely smooth. Some light burnt toffee in taste at first, which turns out to more pure and sweet toffee later on. Light piney bitterness as well in the taste with that light burnt sugary sweetness and ripe wild strawberry fruityness as well. Highly enjoyable dipa.

Tap (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Pleasant fruity hop aroma, classic IPA. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation.Lovely full body, a little sweet, but that helps cover the alcohol. Quite herbal hopping in the mouth but also spicy and zesty, lemony and biting. Gets better with every sip. Classic strong modern hoppy IPA.

Draught@Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, some herbs, fruits, and a nice tropical fruit concentrate tone to it. Flavour is fruity, floral, rather sweet, but well hopped. Nice bitterness with some sweet malts balancing it up.

Draught @ Viisi Penniä. Rated on 19.04.2013
Aroma is sweetish with exotic fruits, caramel and resin. Flavour has much resin, pineapple, fruits and hops. Leathery palate. Gets a bit sticky towards the end of the glass. Nice.
