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.

Hazy but oh well, we love it down Calderdale way. Sediment, yep. I’m afraid you’re going to have to leave the bottom, which is usually hard for me to take as someone who wants every last drip out of their bottle. One of the more popular LV brews.

thirstyrabbit (1692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Orange IPA body with a steady medium tall head. Soft hoppy aroma with some red apples and sour citric fruits. Smooth mouthfeel with ripe red apples and orange juice in taste. Pretty sweet and fruity, not piney at all. Finish has a nicely balanced bitterness that doesn’t override the sweet and fruity body. At times it feels like drinking orange juice (in a good way). Rather good, it seems to be underrated here.

Jultsu (594) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2016
0.5l pullo, BBE sep-2017. Tummankuparinen väri, ok vaahtoava joka jää huterasti reunoille. Maltaisen sammunut mutta oudon raikkaahko tuoksu, maku tunkkaisehko, outo, vetisen laimea mutta karvas mallasfiilis. OK, mutta ei mun juttu.

A medium IPA. Not too much IPA in it though. Hop is very vague. Smell too. Also not very bitter compared to most IPAs. Malt profile is missing a little power.

visionthing (4575) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2015
50cl bottle at Viking XPRS in Finnish waters. Pours hazy golden brown with off-white head. Fairly fruity and somewhat malty with notes of canned peaches, hints of citrus, grass and herbs. Medium to moderate sweet with with a certain bitterness. Feels a bit messy, not to interesting, but still fairly drinkable.

Marduk (5848) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Bit hazy dull amber color. Huge size, thick white head, stays. Looks nice. Bit metallic, sweet, malty, papery and cereals in aroma. Sourish, malty, grains, some spicy hops, sweetish in taste. Sharp acidic hops with mashy malts in aftertaste. Crisp palate. Soft bitterness. Messy brew. Not impressing me much.
