UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Tap (Villi Waino, Helsink) (6:4:5:4:12=3.1)
Pretty bold spicy and herbal aroma, some nettles. Sharp in the mouth. Raw, and a bit yeasty. Has some saisony grunge. A bit rough. Medium palate, a little sticky, but with pleasant carbonation. Finish is very herbal, and a bit saisony. Belgian is not a good twist on IPA, IMHO, but it’s perfectly drinkable.
Rerate: Tap (SOPP2013) (7:4:6:4:13=3.4)
Super sharp tyrni aroma, but a decent pale ale backbone behind that. Deep orange, light keggy head. Alas some sour charpness in the taste. But a decent hoppy ale. Plenty of banana and toffee. Lots of different aspects, I really enjoyed this one.

Draught at the SOPP 2013, Helsinki, Finland. Murky brown colour with an average sized off-white head. Berries, spices, mild tartness, malt and some sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is malt, bitterness and some spices. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (9372) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Tap as "Kaksi Kotia Belgian IPA" @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours hazy orange color with a small steady head. Aroma of yeast, mild hops and ripe fruits. Flavour of ripe fruits, grass, caramel, yeast, faint banana esthers and citric fruits. A bit messy and not really anything to do with IPA.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic
Aroma is floury with grassy hops and some ripe fruits - feels a bit like hefeweizen. Flavour is yeasty and floury with some grassy hops, ripe fruits and hints of cardboard. Also hints of spices and gingerbread. A bit messy, like a dunkelweizen with belgian hops.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours a brown copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of spruce, yeast, sweet caramel and earthiness. Flavour of caramel, strong unpleasant yeastiness, grassy bitterness, berries, bread, licorice and some unclean off-flavours. Medium bodied and slick mouthfeel. Finishes berryish and yeasty, which creates a rather unpleasant mixture. Homebrewish and messy.

mjs (6532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 (Re-rate, keg at Oljenkorsi, 20130831) The flavour had not so much seabuckthorn than the previous batch I tried. Therefore the end result was more balanced and cleaner than the previous version.

(Keg at Villi Wäinö, 20130701) The beer poured brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had fruitiness, berries and malts. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, seabuckthorn, Belgian style yeast, sweetness, liquorice and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, spicy and bitter. A messy brew and probably the leftovers of the keg. Old rating: 6-2-5-2-11=2.6

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle from oh6gdx - many thanks, Patrik! The beer pours out in a hazy amber colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of hops, berries and herbs. Taste of fresh hops, mild berries, rye, oats, barley and cake. Citrus finish. Nice one.
