Not in your face hops, faded or this is it as should have been recent batch. Still nicely drinkable, thanks StephanSD.

mcberko (9566) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out a big caramel malt backbone, resinous hops, and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out some notes of yeast, resinous hops, some bready malts, and some dry caramel malts. There are some sweet fruity notes that kick in later. Finishes malty sweet, with a bit of dark fruits. Not the hoppiest IIPA out there by any means - overtaken by the sweeter malt profile on this. Drinkable in smaller amounts - I wouldn’t want a pint of this. Decent.

olio (7840) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2014
65 cl bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a large white head. Hops and tropical fruits on the nose, orange peel, some pine needles and lots of caramel malts. Sweetish orange, mango, some apricot, caramel malts and resinous hops. Full-bodied, bitter fruity palate, lingering sweetish caramel finish. Nice balance and alcohol is well hidden. On a side note, goes well with spicy food.

laiti (7525) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home, BBE 10/2015?
Aroma is sweet and heavy with pineapple juice and exotic fruits. Also caramel. Flavour has exotic fruits, hops, grapefruit, some gooseberry bush and sweetish caramel malt tones. Quite typical sweet American DIPA. But still rather drinkable.

lusikka (7378) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a white firm foamy head. Aroma of spicy hops, floral notes, lemon zest and some sweet notes. Rich flavour of citrusy bitterness, earth, mango, fair amount of alcohol and some graininess. Medium bodied and a long, warming, bitter finish. Alcohol comes through a bit too much. Other than that quite nice.
