2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Vieta, Riga)
Thanks dude from Hungaricum for pointing us here! Initially a pleasant aromatic hoppy sweetish IPA aroma, herbal, but it quickly turns to something more dishwatery. Pale orange, small tight head. Fairly pleasant in the mouth, fullish, a little sweet, but still refreshing. Slightly sticky malts, somewhat one-dimensional hoppiness. Slightly boring modern IPA. Has a slight APA-yeast stickiness, that might explain the aroma.

slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny fruity wooden aftertaste with

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to my Summer Secret Santa MisoW for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, very very yeasty, huge head. Starts moldy-malty due to all the yeasty. Hoppy bitter background, some grapefruit notes. Finish could be more balanced, dry and bitter. Not my favourite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 l bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere. Bright deep golden color. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, black pepper and mustard seed. Bitter and tropical taste with grapefruit, cocoa and tangerine. Bitterness is initially smooth but finish is bitterness is fairly vegetal and biting. Low carbonation, more would be better. Fairly fresh and good IPA.
