Bottle 1.0l from brewery. Pours hazy brown with almost no head. Low carbonation. Aroma is malt, slightly fruity, alcohol. Taste is malty, rather low bitterness for an IPA , citrus, grapefruit, caramel. Gets better the longer it stays in the glass. First a bit disappointing but later on I think this is a good balanced bitterness IPA.

1 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Hazy reddish amber color. Strong sweet caramel taste . Sweet dull caramel taste with nuts, toffee, pine and vanilla. Full heavy body. Some hop tannins in the palate but little aroma or taste of hops. Way too caramelly.

1.0l bottle. Tnx Timo. Pours cloudy orange with low head. Aroma is caramel notes, berries, pine. Hops and malts. Flavor is hops, alcohol, malts, syrup and caramel. Some.bread notes. I like this as a beer, not IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (3924) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2014
1000ml bottle. Murky, dark amber colour with small to average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Room filling, citrusy hoppy aroma promises more than you get, as long as you keep distance: orange, blood orange, grapefruit. Turning your beak closer, you still get some blood orange, thereto red berries, and, ironically, a soapy, artificial touch of room spray. Taste is initially minimally tart fruity, hints of blood orange and red berries, immediately followed by plain bitterness, maybe a touch of orange zest, later a dry, slightly roasty malty note comes in, even a nutty touch. Unbalanced, un-American, the berry notes have resemblance to those found in some English Bitters. The best I can say is, this may be kinda starting / focal point / crystal nucleus for a kind of Continental IPA; or better, gives an impression of what a Continental IPA may look / taste like. Rating for today: embryonic.

sample @ home, thanks veliempojot!
Aroma is rather weak with some caramel. Flavour has peppery spices, some grass, fruity hops and caramel. Also some smoky tones and a slight feeling of raw bun dough, which seems often to occur on some smoked beers. A bit medicine-like and odd. Nothing offensive here though.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
1000 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours an amber colour with a small head. Aroma of caramel, herbs and grains. Flavour of grainy malts, mild smoked notes, grassy hops, herbs and some berries. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A weird smoked IPA.

1 l bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany color with a minimal head. Aroma of spices, quite smoky, some fruits, faint hops and caramel. Flavor of caramel malts, some resinous hops and some wood. Not really an IPA. Weird and smoky.

1000ml bottle, thanks Timo A.

Pours dark orange with a bubblly white head. Aroma of smoked malts, caramel, grassy hops, citrus and fruits. Taste is smoked malty, sweet fruity and grassy with some citrus and ash. Finish is smoked, caramely and syrupy with some grassy notes. Quite strange, smoked IPA.
