Draught at Oluthuone Leskinen, Oulu. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours are citrus, pine, fruits, grape, yeast and hops. One of my favorite beers.

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!

edsspoon (826) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
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.

alkolas510 (1025) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad grumlig med mycket jäst i flaskan. Doftar och smakar tropisk humle, citrus, apelsin med lite pepprig avslutning. Fyllig och ganska bra

Tellement bien équilibrée entre le gout de pamplemousse, de fuits exotiques et d’amertume! Un régal total que cette belle biére avec ces couleurs orangées profondes.

Nonshaugen (266) - Fetsund, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2015
50 cl, bottle conditioned, batch #1489C, brewed Aug 5th. Hazy, dark orange, one finger white head, not much carbonation, some sediments floating slowly. Aroma is citrusy, grassy and piny, with hints of grapefruit. Smooth mouthfeel at the beginning, then hop bitterness and dryness comes through. Taste is definately all american hops along with the malty notes. Not the most sensational of IPA’s, but well balanced.

Aroma: pine, grass, citrus Great taste of hops mix: pine and grass from the start, some honey with malty background is followed by citrus sour-bittersweet aftertaste. Finally: bitter explosion

Rewelacyjna IPA. Szacun za wygląd. Świetna barwa, mętne, lekki osad drożdżowy i nieśmiertelna piana. Aromat fajny, ale nikły - mógłby być wyraźniejszy. W smaku bardzo przyjemnie, choć goryczka mogłaby być wyższa. Mimo wszystko piwo jest rewelacyjne. Polecam!

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Rating #1173 - 11.7.2014 - Bottle from CBI. Clear golden pour. Aroma of toasty Maris otter, and a ton of grapefruity citrus aromatics from the Cascade. Palate is bold - 7.5% - medium-high alcohol - light toffee, roast notes, hint of smoke - hop notes of grapefruit - loads of bitterness. This may be the best IPA I’ve ever tasted.
