3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. BBE 20.03.2013.
Pours a slightly unclear copper orange colour with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, caramel and some alcohol. Flavour of strong floral hops, grains, malts, exotic fruits, weak lemon, grapefruit, very sweet caramel and some solvent-like alcohol. Full bodied, thick and dry mouthfeel. Finishes fruity, floral, very bitter and warming. Not as good as the previous Pikkulintu Triple IPA, which had more citrusy hops and a heavier body. Alcohol was well hidden, but now it comes through. Nonetheless quite a package.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
En trevlig IPA med doft och smak tropisk frukt, mango, honung. Relativt söt men som bryts med en trevlig markant beska. Det som drar ner betyget är att alkoholen slår igenom en aning för mycket.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Fermentoren. Vibrant orange with lots of white lacing. Smells nicely piney and floral. One sip it all it takes to realise the wonderful consistency of this beer. It’s big and thick but goes down super easy and no trace of alcohol. Starts with an initial sweetness with peach, citrus and all manner of sugary goodness mingling on the tongue before unleashing a wonderful wave of bitterness as it finishes. Excellent stuff.
