UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Every India Pale Ale lover should drink this beer. One of the best I?ve ever tasted. Wonderful, resin, floral, citrus aroma and a great full body. Masterpiece

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 (450) - 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.

minihame2 (402) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Hazy, orange/brown colour and a small, white head. Surprisingly malty aroma, sweet brown sugar, caramel, orange. Seems to be missing most of the IPA characteristics altogether? Taste on the other hand is more familiar, really hoppy right in the beginning but it’s not that sharp. Dry hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, really foamy and rich body. Very good IPA although it seems more like double IPA at some areas. Nevertheless, highly recommended!

A pleasant hoppy pale ale. Pours well with a decent head. Enjoyed from the bottle at a Norwegian hotel bar. Quite a strong taste of hops, nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MelvinKalksma (738) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2016

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 and intense and complex with a perfect balance. The aroma could have been heavier however.
