Fruity, malty taste with citrus, grapefruit, resin, biscuity malt and an impressive piney, citric bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20141129) The beer poured deep amber and a little bit hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts, grass, bread and mildly citricness. Palate was medium bodied and mildly warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, grass, bread and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, fruity and bitter. A double IPA bordering barley wine. Less sweetness would have resulted in better brew.
