50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.04.2009
Aroma is rather hoppy with hay, some fruity and dfloral notes. Flavour has hops, grapefruit, hay, some biscuits, fruits and distant floral notes. The hops feel a bit stinging and palate is somewhat watery. Not much of an IPA, more like overhopped golden ale or pale ale.

Can thanx by benzai. Golden color and clear. Smells and tastes malty, caramel and a bit hoppy. Not bad.

Benzai (7340) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
50cl can [thanks to Rosenbergh] shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah @ weekly tasting. Clear golden color, small white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell malts, lightly hops, but also a little bit herbal, or plant-like I’d say. Taste malts, hayish hops, lightly bitter, straw. Average body, soft carbonation. An English style IPA imo. Not bad at all.

DutchDrebus (3890) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
Can @ benzai. Clear yellow colour with a medium sized white head. Smells slightly hoppy but not the fruity kind, grassy. Tastes hops, grassy, fresh, crisp, malts. Decent English style IPA. Thinnish body, nice crisp carbo.

SperkeleForce (516) - FINLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Can 50 CL. Pours golden with medium head. Notes of vegetables, citrus. Not really an ipa, or an good IPA needs more taste, fruityness, bitterness, more hops. Still better then lager tho. Inget och hänga i julgranen endå.

BitchPls (539) - FINLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Clear copper/gold color, medium white head. Sweet and soapy, hoppy aroma. Quite thin body, but good drinkability. Good bitter grassy hops. A bit sweet and buttery. Very good thirst killer with good hops. I like this one.

Armadill0 (264) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Can. Faint aroma with flowers and some malt. Taste is light. Somewhat hoppy and bitter. Somewhat metallic. A bit malty on the aftertaste. Watery. There is some character on the background but it never really comes through. Disappointing, but beats your run of the mill lager.

Braastad (385) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Darkish golden with lacing head. Aroma has very faint citrusy hops and starchy malts. Taste has bready malts, weird bitter hops and sugar. Not very well balanced.
