Aika tiukkaa tavaraa. Hajujen sekametelisoppa. Aivan hyvä jouluolut. Kyllä tätä voi ostaa.

Armadill0 (282) - FINLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. Golden yellow, clear. Medium white head. Aroma has sweet resin, pine and grain. Taste has fruit, orange, honey and some pine. Nothing IPAish in this beer. Alcohol is well hidden. Well rounded yet mild taste.

mjakopa (219) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy darker yellow with lots of head that dissipates after a while. Aroma is fruity, sweet, pineapple, and very fresh. Taste is quite hoppy but not bitter, some citrus notes, with more fresh exotic fruity flavours. Aftertaste is quite dry but not hoppy, just slightly bitter with hints of pine. This is a very balanced, unique and extremely drinkable beer. For fans of hoppy christmas ales!

gegwilson (1269) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle from BeerRitz in Leeds. A beer flavoured with ginger and pine needles didn’t sound very appetising, but this was really good. Poured golden amber with a frothy white head. V ery citrtus hop aroma. Interesting strong flavours with a pineapple finish the most prevelant. There’s caramel and spices in there too. Ginger too, but nicely hidden in the background rather than dominating. The pine notes are in the finish. Good.

Draft at a sampling event. From notes. Citrus and grapefruit with a decent bit of caramel . Loads of holiday baking spices. Pretty good.

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly cloudy orange colour with a big, light beige and creamy head. Has a fruity aroma with mango, pine, some caramel, citrus and fruity hops. The flavour follows up and has a rich and slick mouthfeel. The bitterness is balanced and at a medium level. A nice, tasteful and well-balanced IPA.

onceblind (4286) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Clear golden under a medium foamy white head. Nose is strongly hoppy, with earthy dank hops bringing a piney, floral, and orange zest note on the aroma, with a melon-like sweetness underneath. Flavor is balanced and complex, with lots of notes of fresh floral hops, grapefruit, pine resin, caramel, and leafy fresh hops. Wonderful ipa, seasonal or not.
