3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Black Door, Helsinki. A clear copper color with a little head. Aroma of fresh exotic fruits, peach, citrus, pineapple - very nice. Taste is dry and hoppy, but should maybe be hoppier. Exotic fruity flavours appear but not as much as the aroma suggested. Palate is medium bodied, slicky with low carbonation. Decent but hoppy bite wasn’t sharp enough.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is apricot, tropical fruits, a bit grassy and quite sweet malty. Flavour is similar with a quite big bitter finish. "Quite typical overhopped US IPA imitation".

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki)
Hazy orange, small tight head. Sweet fruity aroma, exotic fruits, even going all the way to lychee. Definitely tasty, but a littel bit over-the-top with the american aroma hops. Not too fruity, per se, but sweeter than I’d normally like, and not quite beery enough for me. Should try the bottled version to compare...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - erä #486, at William K Kurvi, 20130309) The beer poured deep amber and hazy. Tis head was medium sized and white. Aroma had boiled vegetables, hops and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, boiled vegetabless, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. The good flavours tried but failed to cover the bad ones. Not a complete failure but still a disappointing brew.

Fruity and resiny hoppy aroma with tobacco, some cookie sweetness and maltiness. The flavour is sweet malt, mild bitterness and fruity hops. Watery. Too sweet for me.
