jmgreenuk (5236) - Kuala Lumpur, - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Cloudy brown pour and weak aroma. Lots of chewy sediment. Not the best beer I've tasted. Something not quite right IMO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy, straw-coloured, with fluffy head. Aroma is slightly mentoly, taste has nice bitterness but with some disturbing soapiness. Crisp and refreshing though.

A british ipa, more like a bitter really. Dry, crisp, hoppy, but not really fruity. Decent, but far from a real ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a bottle. Nice and fresh ipa. It’s a bit basic though. Looks nice and hazy.

olio (6799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
50 cl bottle.
Pours orange color with a large head. Mandarin and faint hops on the nose, gooseberry bush and some faint grass too. Lots of gooseberries on the flavor, dry hay, malts, nutty notes, mandarin and mild wooden notes on the finish. Way too nutty, malty and "english" for me, too much gooseberries too. Not liking it.

Zarkam (507) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2014
500ml bottle, hazy orange colour, medium frothy white head, excellent lacing. Moderately malty aroma of nuts and hay with moderate to heavy herbal, earthy and citric hops and some buttery yeast esters. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet turning into a long quite bitter finish with a moderately astringent feel. Full body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite pleasant and somewhat complex yet balanced.

sk75 (32) - Ballyshannon, IRELAND - DEC 24, 2014
It pours a light brown colour with a decent white head that lasts and leaves lacing. It has a floral grassy aroma, the taste is sweet with a hoppy dry finish, the mouth feel is full and the carbonation is lively.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour. Aroma and taste is of malts. Little hops to note - citrus, mild carbonation. Easy to drink.

Erasmus_ro (1578) - Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of TM, 27/11/14. Pours orange with a good, white head. Aroma is somewhat gluey, hard fruit drops, some citrus, maybe orange. Taste is a bit gluey, some flower, some caramel. Fairly full, medium carbonation. Not that pleasant.

Pyöräkadulla 11/2014. Quite moderate hoppiness, quite far from IPA I think.

Sumuinen olemus. Keskitasaverto maku. Ei IPA ollenkaan. Kummallinen on tämäkin. Ihme juttu.
