Draught @ Black Door
Aroma is fruity and somewhat sweet with peaches and caramel. Also hints of hay. Flavour is hoppy with minerals, fruits, some peaches and distant herbal tones. Foamy and creamy palate. Finishe with a bit unpleasangt lingering hops. Too dry and too low on fruits.

nihtila (2746) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
22.3.2014. Grapefruit, spicy aroma. Balanced IPA. Malts and hops. Not a hop revolution but it is there along with fruits.

Nice IPA, shame it was only a seasonal proto(?). It is already some time ago I had this, but it got me deeper into the IPA beer "scene".

RexTalionis (3475) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014

No words to describe this. Just numbers due to social convention: Bit tight, caramelly.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Tap at Kaisla, based on notes from 042714. Hazy light orange colour, average creamy mostly lasting white head, excellent lacing. Heavily hoppy aroma of resin, lime and grapefruit, moderate grainy, nutty and caramel malts and a bit of leather from yeast. Some sweetness in the taste at first along with bitterness and acidity, turning into a long bitter finish with a heavily astringent/dry feel. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Not a bad IPA, a bit unbalanced maybe and could’ve been maltier, fair bit of yeastiness in the one I had which I didn’t mind.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Draught. Hazy amber color, big and thick head. Citrusy and sweet cantaloupe notes, sugary canned fruits and some pale caramel. Fresh but slightly too "sweet" hop aroma to me. Sweetish, pale caramelly flavor. Level of bitterness is ok but it has rather unpleasantly vegetal and harsh bite. Caramelly, slightly biscuity and harshly resiny finish. Nice body, soft texture, smooth carbonation.

Dalar (21) - FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
Looks nice, hazy amber with foam that stays. Not a lot of aroma. Quite bitter aftertaste, stingy. Not very good IPA, though the malty character is good.

Lambister (436) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Tap at hbf 2014. Clear hazy golden color medium, white head. Aromas are quite light, fruity, malty. Also malty body, quite dry hops, fruity and fresh.
