Draught@Rotterdam, Helsinki
Clear amber color, nice creamy off-white head, some lace. Hayish flowery-hoppy nose with clovers and honey. It is claimed to be American style IPA - I find it more like English as flavor has lots of fresh cut grass and clover hoppyness, nicely lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. When it warms, taste becomes ashier - propably rye starts to dominate the flavor. As far as I remember Severin IPA was similar, just a rye here makes a difference.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Keg (Kurvi, Helsinki) (6:3:8:3:14=3.4)
Creamy, hoppy but well balanced. Full in the mouth.
rerate of Keg (Kitty’s, Helsinki) (6-3-7-3-13=3.2)
Orange, thin tight head. Herby bitter nose. Resiny sticky taste, fills the mouth completely. Leaves a long resiny hoppy aftertaste. Some ginger tones to the taste.
Later rerate: Cask (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (7:4:7:4:14=3.5)
Lovely floral aroma, a touch perfumey. Lightish in the mouth, less heavy than the keg versions. Nice brown with a frothy loose head - looks like a proper beer! Slightly floral, but very perfumey taste. Nice gentle barley malt backbone, some gentle spicyness and hints of husks. Maybe a little watery in the palate, but it comes over as being thirst quenching. No sign of 5.9%, seems more like 4.5%. Didn’t have enough to judge big volume drinkability, but the first impressions are positive.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2011 Draught at Plevna, Tampere, Finland.
Dark brown colour. Bitter hoppy and fruity aroma. Same with the flavour. Rye makes it milder in bitterness but also smoother. Enjoyable.

olio (7424) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Draught @ brewpub.
Pours clear, dark copper color with a small head. Aroma of hops, grass, mild caramel, some floral notes and citrus fruits. Flavour of hoppy citrus fruits, grass, some mild malts and buttery notes. Bitter and dry fruity palate. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013
Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 02.05.2009
Aroma has some slightly aged fruits and bready malt. Flavour has exotic fruits and grape with some bready malt. This used to be much more hoppy, refreshing and radical. I wonder what has happened?
8+3+7+3+13 = 3.4

Cask @ Pikkulintu
Pours a big-bubbled head(!). Aroma is odd with caramel and some fruits. Flavour has resiny notes, strawberries, some vanilla tones and hints of toffee. Also some woody and hay tones. Harsh bitterness with herbs in the finish after some sips. Feels messy and does even get some vegetable and herbal tones at the middle of the glass. Perhaps not at its prime, but not too far from it.
7+2+7+3+14 = 3.3

lusikka (7038) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Tap @ Plevna. Rated @ 24.6.2009.
Pours an amber colour with a frothy white head which lasts nicely. Fruity on the nose with a great amount of hops, nuts and rye. Fruity and hoppy flavoured with a nice addition of rye which creates a strong body. Notes of pine needles and caramel. Medium/full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very similar to Severin Extra IPA, but this one has more character. 8-4-8-4-16 4.0

Draught @ the brewpub.
Very similar than the previous rating. However, not nearly as malty as I remembered, low hoppiness as well and has some vegetable notes as well. Severin is better and this is not excellent anymore. 7-4-7-3-15
