1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Beer has nice color and smell. Taste starts strong but is missing something. Finish is a strong hop and has a lingering bitterness.

Really good beer. Wonderful fragrance. Tastes wonderful too but unfortunately a bit weak. The aftertaste is also good but can not keep still for too long. This beer I would buy again. Would that every one double IPA it would get the highest score.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Järnet, 20120626) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense and white. Aroma had fruitiness and grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, citricness, grain and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, bitter and harsh. Quite mild for an APA but clean. Also the presence of grain in both the taste and the aroma was bit unpleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Nice citrus hop aroma, a touch biscuity in the sweetness. Pale, hint of haze, small loose head. Taste very predictable from the aroma and alcohol percentage. Some doughy and sweet nutty retronasals, some freezer ice too. Simple bready palate, quite grainy, almost nutty, pine nuts too, and with a clear grapefruity hop bitterness. Pine nuts and and aromatic breadiness in the finish. Some milkiness from the light grains, and a nice resiny bitter bite, with a little tingle too, in the late finish. Simple, but full of flavour and enormously drinkable. Deserves a 500ml bottle, not a 330.
