Had this beer at Alvinne Craft Beer Festival 2011. Was sitting at a table with 8 other people, not of whom I was acquainted with. Ordered this beer and tasted it. Within 10 minutes everyone at my table had tried it. Says enough donít you think? Very nice strong IPA. Try it!

Unclear orange coloured, medium sized off-white head, fruity jam nose. Moderate malty, very hoppy and fruity with notes of caramel and mild hint of alcohol. Grapefruity hoppy finish and long-lasting aftertaste. Great beer.

Pours a dark, hazy, orange colour with a white head. Aroma of very strong floral hops, caramel and grass. Strong flavour of floral hops, sweet caramel malts, pine needles and grapefruit. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a warming fruity, bitter finish. Awesome.

Clear orange colour with small head. Aroma of fresh and crispy hoppy fruits, lots of them. Flavour has fruits, grass, distant syrup and light malts. Very crisp fruit bomb worth drinking often.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, sampled 16.11.2010) Murky orange with a firm, lacy head. Sweat, birch leaves, citrus and grass in the nose. Strongly aromatic-hoppy flavor with resiny-birchy hoppiness. No hops have been spared, but there is enough malt to balance it - and no cat pee. Also some fruitiness, although there could have been even more for my taste. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste, no signs of alcohol. Quite full-bodied and warming palate. This one has lots of everything, but it remains balanced and enjoyable - even (too) easy to drink. A very successful 10th anniversary brew.
