Light brown IPA.Powerful floral, minty and grassy aroma with a straw like colour and long bitter finish. Original IPA (stronger and very hoppy). This beer will easily survive a long journey to India.

0.5 bottle. Hazy, dark amber color and a medium, thick, off-white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops, loads of honey, and some mild malty notes. Taste is typically bitter due to strong hop presence but has some malty notes like hay and caramel as well. Medium body, oily texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and also features malty caramel and hay aside from typical hops. Overall the beer is pretty good, doesn’t live an astringent aftertaste like many IPAs do, also the uncanny maltiness is subdued with time by stronger hoppy flavors.

fantti (773) - FINLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin 2,5 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla jättäen hyvää solukkomaista pitsiä. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on kitkerä hedelmäisyys ja ruohoisuus (jopa kissanpissamaisuus), jota tukee lievä keksisyys. Maku jatkaa samaa linjaa, sitä leimaa kitkerä ruohoisuus ja puumaisuus, sitruksisuudella ryyditettynä. Paljon muuta ei ole havaittavissa, joskin lievä diasetyyli tulee mieleen. Suutuntuma on kitkerä ja melko pahvinen, runko ja humalointi ei kohtaa. Melkoinen pettymys, melko raskaasti juotavaa tavaraa. Kitkerä ja tasapainoton IPA.

mikkopen (914) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2014
500 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, thick white head. Malty aroma with floral hops and notes of citrus fruits. Sweetish malty flavour, with fruity notes and a moderately bitter floral finish. OK, but a bit too sweet and not bitter enough for my taste.

Beerheart65 (1116) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Hazy brownish ochre with one finger bubbly head, bit lacing. Very mild malty aroma, grass, floral notes. Medium body, crisp feel, grapefruit, bit pine, bready malt, dry and medium bitter lasting to medium long finish. Was bit in flu but this was mild in aroma and flavors.

500ml bottle at Stu’s. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Strong aromas of floral hops, caramel. Good bitterness, in a grassy, British hop way. Bitter finish. Good.

As beautiful as it is, it’s just another average IPA. Doesn’t stray too far to one side or the nother, but the malty sweetness are actually up front, then the bitterness hits you at the back of the tongue, just like it should. Personally I prefer my IPA’s a little more "dangerous", but overall a decent brew.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle at home. Murky orange gold with a thick bright white head. Aroma of citrus hops yeast lemon fudge. Flavour is caramel malts, light floral notes. Not great in a style I like a lot, quite enjoyed this beer though.

Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Smooth malt base, whisper of cream but it’s not too sweet. Citric peel hops, notbtoo aggrrssive. Finishes smooth. Quite a tasty and drinkable IPA.

beerfest5 (1206) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 8, 2014
In the crowded world of IPA’s these days, its tough to come out in the middle ground because most people have tasted an IPA that they love, either traditional English variety, or an American hop bomb, this was neither and really didn’t come out well. Bready malt character like an English IPA mixed with apple juice which is way too sweet and annoying. The hops bring a distinctive citrus note to the flavor, but again, combined with this weird apple taste becomes very unappetizing.
