4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a beautiful hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of strong citrusy hops, grapefruit and pine. Heavy flavour of very bitter floral hops, lemon, grapefruit, sweet apricot and caramel. Full bodied and overall very strong but also mellow flavour. Gets more aggressive towards the end with a big, dry, crispy bitter finish. Long lingering bitterness, which fades in 10-15 minutes. Yum yum, this is a perfect treat for a hop head.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20120412) The beer poured golden and a bit hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had citricness, pine and fruitiness. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, pine, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. Well balanced IPA with a bit too much alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Hazy pale yellow with a smallish, but lasting, frothy and lacy head. Aroma is crisp and lemony with a piney twist. Flavor is crisply lemony-hoppy and quite bitter, with a long, bitter and dryish finish. Medium body, soft CO2. A nice IPA for its class, but of course I’d prefer more fruitiness. 3735

On bottle @Domus Birrae. Very bitter and hoppy with a long bitter finish. Golden cloudy colour, with a flat white head. This beer seemed very good to me. Actually as an IPA lover, I like the strong hop taste of this beer. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a big, creamy off-white head. Good lacing. Sweet and slightly tart grape fruit aroma – very nice! Flavour is sweet, fat grape fruit hops with malt in the background. Dry, bitter hoppy finish with a lingering grassy note. Overall not very complex, but really well-made, and those grape fruit notes are just the bomb. 05.04.12.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pale version ROCKS. Very peculiar, personal imprint from the Danish brewery to IPAs, extremely marked with an explicit will to kill (with hops), it pours of a rarely bright golden - nose is totally rich with citrus and tropical tuttifrutti, the malting provides a substantious yet lively body.
