Bottle at euston tap. Not much aroma not much taste and no hoppiness. Super disappointed after I read other reviews. Maybe this batch is off. Batch 649 bb 24/06/14

Reilusti ja kestävästi vaahtoava ja runsaasti pitsiä jättävä olut on väriltään samean tumman oranssinen. Tuoksu on trooppisen hedelmäinen, greippinen ja mandariininen, ruohoinen ja havuinen sekä makean karamellinen. Suutuntumaltaan täyteläinen ja pehmeä olut maistuu trooppisen hedelmäiselle, varsinkin mandariinille ja loppupuolella katkeramman greippiselle. Lisäksi maussa selkeää karamellista makeutta, jopa hunajaa. Pitkä greippinen jälkimaku, joka on kuitenkin mukavan pehmeä. Onhan tämä vaan laadukkaimpia ellei jopa laadukkain maistamani ipa. Täyteläinen, mutta mukavasti hiilihappoinen runko. Maussa pehmeä karamellinen pohja, jonka päällä eksoottista hedelmää, havuisuutta ja katkeraa greippisyyttä. Raikas, maukas ja täyteläisen pehmeä.

NORSAND (73) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2016
Amber colour. Nose: Grass, pine, some grapefruit, Taste: In the arrival pine, sweet citrus and some honey like sweetness. Slightly nutty. Medium to medium rich body. The exit has a nice, hoppy bitterness combined with a smoky element (hints of cigar). The aftertaste is mainly bitter grapefruit, lingering for a while but lasting less than a minute. Tasted alongside 7Fjell’s Ulriken IPA which is quite similar but drier, spicier and slightly fruitier than Nøgne Ø.

Looks like a proper IPA with a nice foam. Aroma is a little earthy with citrus. Taste is also quite earthy, very bitter with grape fruit and dried peaches, Full bodied. Quite thick, very much like a double IPA. Very good.

Turboninja (468) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle@home, from Alko Anttila, Tampere, Finland. Medium/strong aroma/taste product with balanced and soft nuances of bit sour fruits like overaged mango and green apple. Medium/low carbonation. Overall, distinctive, strong, bit too sour. Still high quality.
