Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, bread, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, yeast, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

This beer is intense and complex with a perfect balance. The aroma could have been stronger however.

Lovely aroma of citrus and pine. Pours orange with a tall, solid head that stays. Lovely bitter taste of grapefruit, pine and unripe berries. Lovely and long after taste. Great beer.

Unde (857) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2016
Amazing orange colour with nice head on top which leaves lots of lacing. Aroma has pines, grass and lots of caramel malts. Taste is quite sweet with caramel malts, also pines and grassy bitterness from the hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Piney and malty IPA.

En rigtig fin IPA som smager af humle uden det bliver for meget. Der er masser af aromahumle i den også.

Saeglopur (1665) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 4, 2016
500 ml bottle from Firma Bier, brewed 18-08-15.
Amber, haz body, with a medium, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of citrus, orange, passion fruit, grass, biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, grass, some herbs, orange, some tropical fruits, some earthy pine, biscuit.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, medium dry, zesty, herbal, grassy, piney, slightly alcoholic.

Very nice. Stronger, bitter-herbal and with a quite full malt body. I prefer crisper IPAs less heavy and aggressive, so this isn’t among my favourite ones, but still really enjoyable.

Excellent take on a West Coast IPA, the only thing I’d criticise is the lack of IBU. Could do with a bit more bitterness to help balance the sweetness. Great beer from the Nordic Beasts nonetheless, well done fellas!

Bottle - bright amber with a nice thick, sustainable, beige frothy head. Aroma of grass, coriander seeds and hints of molasses and peaches. Taste of caramel, grass and flowers with a hint of pine in the finish. Harsh, long lasting bitterness to finish. Medium to heavy body, medium carbonation, dry mouthfeel.
