Well balanced IPA, with a grapefruit hop. Did now wow me, but is a very decent beer for Union Jacks.

Jultsu (358) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Kirkas lagermainen ulkonäkö, reunoille vetäytyvä vaalea vaahto. Raikas tuoksu. Kuohuva hapokas suutuntuma, kirpeähkökin, samettinen, ei järin kuiva mutta purtavan maukas. Ei välttämättä mausteisuutta mutta tiettyä purevuutta. Vallan mainio IPA.

tfontana (202) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle in pint glass from The Drinkery, Londonderry NH. Aroma is surprising amount of bready malt and yeasty dough smell, along with fruit and herbs. Appearance is mildly hazy orange gold with trace sparkle, less than finger-width foamy white head with poor retention and negligible lacing. Taste is balanced fruity sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Palate is light to medium bodied with thick texture and lively carbonation and mixed sweet/bitter and dry finish. Overall, this is a nice beer but I was expecting to be blown away given all the hype surrounding it.

Golden and lightly cloudy with one finger of head. Head lasts long and has good lacing. Strong floral hop aroma and light citrus. Lots of hop character without being very bitter. Lightly sweet with tastes of lemongrass and pine. A good beer if I’m in the mood for a lot of hops.

StueyD (1498) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
A deep golden coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A strong hoppy aroma on opening the can. A huge hop aroma in the glass, grassy and piney, citrus fruit essential oils and just a hint of fresh coriander (cilantro). Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, huge mouth puckering hop flavours, the grass and pine elements lead the way, bringing along the fresh herb, then the citrus fruit comes through, oily orange, grapefruit and tangerine, plus a touch of lime! There is an interesting background bitterness that can only be likened to fresh, pre-roasted cocoa or coffee beans! The finish is long, lingering and bitter with all the elements staying on. Can from Beers of Europe.

Pours clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is grapefruit, ripe pineapple, apricot, pine and caramel. Taste is grapefruit, caramel, huge piney hop bitterness that lingers. A great IPA, a real explosion of flavours that are perfectly balanced.
