4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 500 ml bottle. Rated @ 25.11.2009.
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a beautiful frothy white head. Loads and loads of hops and citrus on the nose. Similar flavour with some caramel malts to balance the taste. It doesn’t compromise the hoppiness too much. Medium bodied with a very dry mouthfeel. Lovely hop overdose. Kudos for the low ABV. 8-4-8-4-16
500 ml bottle. Rated @ 1.8.2011.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a large, frothy, chunky head which leaves a nice lacing. Aroma of sweet fruits and crispy floral hops. Lovely bitter flavour of crispy hops, pine needles, pale malts and not much fruitiness. Long and bitter finish of hops and some pine needles. Mouthdrying. Straight to the point IPA, one of my favourites from Finland. 9-4-8-4-16

50cl bottle. Golden color with a frothy white head, that lasts. Citrus and lots of hops in aroma. A very dry taste, citrus well hidden, but it is there, more in the aftertaste: Very very dry and bitter, just as it says on the bottle. Think this will be a favourite.

Cask@Black Door. Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour with small white head. Aroma is fruity and grassy and fruity hops along with some wooden notes. Flavour is bigtime grassyness along with some flowery and fruity hops as well as some mild wooden hints. A pleasant hoppy brew which leaves a long grassy and flowery aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy golden, small head. Sweaty citric grapefruity aroma. Very dry, almost thin. Slim and drinkable, but mindblowingly bitter. The lightest bready malt has makes no attempt to hold the floodgate of inky bitterness back. Certainly not shooting for balance, but achieving drinkability anyway.

500ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki
Pours light yellow with a small head. Nice citrusy and hoppy aroma. Taste has a light body and a massive overload of hops. Palate is long and nicely bitter. Awesome beer for such a low ABV.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, orange beer with medium and white head. Hop.Over.Dose.Ale have hoppy and aromatic aroma with pine needles and some fruits. Flavour is strongly bitter and it is near of overdose of hops in the first mouthfull. But you adjust to strong bitterness quickly and there are also lot of pine needles, grass and maybe some lemon and then flavour turns into long and bitter end. All the flavour seems to become from hops and I would wish also something more than only hops. Quite easy to drink but not watery. I had to wait a long time before I get this beer into my glass, but worth to wait. Strogly bitterness beer, that pleasures hop freeks.
