3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki. Pours hazy amber with a little white head with good retention. The aroma displays grass, citrus fruits and some pine, seems as varied as the abundant hop selection suggests. Taste is richly fruity with moderate to prominent hop bitterness. The palate is light to medium bodied, slick and drinkable with an average carbonation. Quality APA; low abv but you could not tell from the taste. Regrettably expensive, at least in Finland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A veritable flurry of hoppy tastes interrelate in this brew. Heavily carbonated, a nice head and a strong, full taste makes this beer a winner in the class of aggressively hopped pale ales.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy orange with barely any head. The aroma is dominated by hops, but the blend of 13 different hops don’t leave room for nuances. Other aromas are hay, resin, yeast, and cookies. Taste is bitter and dry. The mouthfeel is thick, almost syrupy, and the beer is almost flat.
