3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured at the Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a nicely golden hue, touch of orange, faint haziness, frothy whitish head atop. Dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are brooding, soapy, touches of spirit, lots of orange rind, fruity peaches, and some citrusy hops, biscuits and bready malts. Some dough, spirit, toffee and lemons. Gentle spice, richer citrus bites. Initial is soapy, oranges, a bit canded. Some bready malts, dough, straw. Gentle spirit. Gentle graininess, toast, and dough. A bit sweet as we move on, candied oranges, bready malts, dough and grass. A bit hot, sweet. Backend is a bit dry, toasty, sticky. Meh. Touches of peach, a bit sweet, mellow bitterness. Not bad. Honor to try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample @ SMÖF 2012. 2006 vintage (yes, they sold a 6 year old iipa). Pours hazy and cloudy golden with a frothy goldenish white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of sticky trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet, malty, tiny fruity and tiny hoppy with crackers, caramel, overripe lemons, leather, dusty dry soil, slightly dry grass, pine, cedar and hints of rubber. Taste is sweet and slightly malty with crackers, white bread, honey, lemon zest, orange zest, leather, dry wood, slightly dry grass, pine and hints of rubber and alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, soft, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and slightly bitter with white bread, crackers, pine, dry wood, leather, grapefruit rinds and honey. A weird one... An aged west coast IIPA. Not barley wine-like at all. It tastes rather good but it’s basically pale malt juice...

Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki
Pours orange with a foamy white head. Aroma has notes of citrusy hops, pine and malts. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of malts and citrusy hops. Finish is slightly bitter, quite refreshing and fruity. Okay IIPA, could’ve used some more hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Akkurat. Slightly hazy yellow-gold body. Bubblegum and agrumey aroma hop in the nose, but pineapple is even more noticable. Peppery taste, aroma hops, fruit, slightly tangy. Dry herbs near the end. Good malt base that’s not asserting itself much. Not entirely extreme but flawless and quite likable.
