Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Great lacing. Nose and taste of papaya, mango, citrus, sugared pink grapefruit, caramel malt, pine, dank hops and resin/sap. Balance is incredible. One of the better IIPAs I’ve had in some time.

mcberko (11172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
500mL can, sent from OKBeerFan (thanks a lot, Matt), pours a dark copper with a large beige head. Aroma brings out a great quality of resinous hops, a little wood and some caramel biscuity malt. Flavour is potent and wonderfully balanced, with truckloads of resinous hops, some pine, a little wood, and just enough caramel bready malt. Couldn’t really be better balanced. This is a wonderful top-class IIPA.

rosenbergh (9503) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2013
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.

deyholla (9263) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a grayish off-white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice pine hop note through out with a hint of grapefruit and resin plus a caramel backbone. Flavor has a good amount of pine with a light resinous note backed by a bit of citrus and some sweet grains.

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.

laiti (7789) - 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.

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.
