Tap at Kaisla, Helsinki. A color of dark reddish amber with a medium-sized frothy head. Aroma of piny, grassy and fruity hoppiness. Tasty is crisp, dry and bitter, hops bite initially with a fruity punch. The finish features dry, bready malty notes, probably from the rye malts. Palate is medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Nice quality IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown coloured beer with medium sized head and lots of lacing. Rye pops up first and then some sweet notes, hops stay back in the aroma. Rye balances the hops making this relatively sweet for IPA. Maybe a bit too thin body and needs a little more hops. Nice experiment with rye malts.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Clear copper-red body. Large well-lasting head with slightly off-white color. Nose is mild with citrus, spices and dark malts. Taste starts with a malty sweetness that is quickly followed by a hoppy bitterness that leaves a surprisingly mild aftertaste.Very soft carbonation and a rich, silky mouthfeel Pretty well balanced and nice to drink, although quite rich for the stylr.
