4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A classic India Pale Ale: amber in colour, really strong and malty aroma. intensively bitter at the same time, the bitterness offers some hints of citrus and pine. Long lasting finish! Still it comes well-balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a small, light tan head. Light hoppy aroma with some pine notes. Taste is bitter but not too overpowering, other than that it’s somewhat weak. Mouthfeel is soft, slight carbonation. It lacks a bit as both an IPA and an ale, and as a combination of the two it’s not too impressive. Alright for sure, but nothing to write home about. For the price (3,5eur a bottle) I’d say it’s not worth it.

Nummenrannassa. Good beer, not quite light I have used to know IPA to be, of course this is not supposed to be like that either.
