sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2006 (Draught@Pikkulintu) Very hazy amber color with a smallish, tight head and lots of lace. Mild, flowery-hoppy and aromatic nose. Yeasty, crisply aromatic-hoppy, grapefruity flavor with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied, crisp and smooth-carbonated palate. A quite nice, not too sharply hopped IPA. (Draught@Stockholm Beer Festival 2005, was 6-3-6-3-12=3) Hazy amber color with a small head. Aromatic-flowery-hoppy, quite smooth aroma. Aromatic-hoppy, slightly acidic and stingy flavor with a bitter, dryish finish. Medium-bodied, bitter and acidic palate with low carbonation. A quite raw, although pretty hoppy ipa.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2004
Sampled from draught at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#22).
The brewer told me that they tried to make an American style IPA with this! I think they succeed quite well! Unclear amber/orange body with a thick foamy light tan head. Lots of hops in the nice and heavy aroma. Sweet middle with a good bitterness around it. Toffee tones. Flavor is hoppy, nutty and caramelly. Not that full but tasty. Sweet in the end. Another good one from Hantverksbryggeriet!

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2004
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Amber colour. Rich hoppy aroma, flowery and toffee-like. Flavour is not as funky, although I note some homebrew character. Bitter toffee plus a little milky acidic.
