Poured into a pint glass a cloudy orange with a foamy head. Lots of lacing. Smells of citrus with a hint of hops. Grapefruit and pine hit the tongue first with a bit of a bitter finish. Medium mouth that’s a bit oily. This is a nice beer. Not my favorite, but something I would enjoy from time to time.

750 ml bottle. From a trade with deyholla. A big thank you!
Hazy orange colour with a small white head. Fruits, freshness, sweetness, some hoppy bitterness and malt in a balanced aroma. Moderate bitterness, fresh fruitiness, malt and mild sweetness in a very balanced flavour. Tasty. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
75 cl bottle @ Tampella
Aroma is rather sweet with exotic fruits and hops. Feels quite like fruit juice. Flavour is fruity and sweet with mango, passionfruit, and some minerals. Lots of lingering hops. A bit too sweet and sticky but good anyway.

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
750 ml bottle, thanks rosenbergh. Pours a cloudy amber orange colour with a small head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, gooseberry bush, mango and kiwi. Rich flavour of sweet caramel, mango, rich floral bitterness, grapefruit, herbal notes and some alcohol. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a sweet, herbal and very, very bitter. Lingering bitterness just keeps on going. Highly enjoyable.

750ml bottle, thanks rosenbergh!

Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of fresh exotic fruits, caramely malts, mango, citrus, sweetish notes and pine. Taste is malty, fruity and hoppy with loads of caramel, citrus, exotic fruits, pine and grass. Finish is heavily hopped, bitter, dry, sweetish and malty with loads of caramel, grass and pine. Sweet and malty DIPA with a long lasting bitterness.

75 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a minimal head. Aroma is very hoppy and fresh with exotic fruits, passion fruit, resin and pine needles, some grass and malts also. Flavor is somewhat sweet with caramel malts, exotic fruits, resinous hops, some goose berries and grass. Very refreshing, though a bit sweet. Very good.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a deep golden /amber color. The aroma was strong with grapefruit / citrus smell. The taste was medium body and a clean finish for a 10 abv double. Overall a good DIPA.

Big bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and lightly piney hops plus a nice caramel and pale maltiness. Flavor a good balance of everything with the strong hops standing out. Average to smooth texture. A good beer.

750mL from SoonerChamps, this is a big boy beer in a big boy bottle, nice orange hue from it, medium 3 finger head, nose is big amounts of hop but there definitely is a strong malt backbone, more than I’d like but its a balanced IIPA. Good local stuff.

Bomber to snifter. Big, hoppy nose; gorgeous pour. Terrific balance. Nice hop profile. Easy to drink. A bit pricey, but worth it. Well done, Roughtail.
