500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
My god, this is Thornbridge at perfection. Beautiful hoppy aroma. so fruity - touch citrussy, some pineapple, some more exotic fruit like kiwi. Bright gold, sticky white head. SUper body, perfectly attenuated. Dry as you could ever want. Such a pleasant fruitybody, but so beautifully dry too. Love everything about it. Absolutely no sign of 7.4% at all. I could session this.

BeerBaboon (1538) - FINLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Pours golden orange with white head. Aroma is very piny with exotic fruits. Flavour is linering bitter and the fruits are still there. Flavour is medium-malty but the hops are taking over. Not very complex but good nonetheless.

Nijstrom (52) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours hazy golden with a big white rocky foam and medium lacing. A fresh, fruity and very hoppy aroma with notes of grass, pine, malt (mainly caramel). Very bitter taste with medium sweetness. Light/medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. Lingering bitter finish. Very tasty and well balanced beer!

Beerheart65 (978) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2012
Strong sweet aroma is citrus-fruity with pineapple, pine. Malting underneath. Looks nice: hazy honey, big 3 finger head is white and frothy. Taste combines fresh fruity sweetness and hoppy bitterness, medium body, light feel, easy to drink and to enjoy, soft carbonation, dry and bitter long finish. Lots of fresh fruits and nice easy-to-drink -palate, good.

Brandman (2059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Little hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma is really fruity: pineapple, light caramel, toasty malt. Flavour has nice balance with bitterness and malty. Nice ipa, best is the lightness and the absence of caramel malt.

jookos (2003) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle. Light orange, just a touch of haze. Nose has a lot of fruity, perfumy, floral hops. Grapefruit, some tropical tones. Body is medium light. Assertive bitterness, but not too harsh. Very hoppy, some green/grass. Nice apa. Could have more fuller and noticable malts, but ok.
