Although I do miss some bitterness, there is a nice ready backbone, english yeast and citric aroma. Pretty good.

mt_hall (153) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottled. A slightly hazy, gold/amber colour with a small off-white head. A good, fresh hoppy aroma, with some fruit and some resin. Big body in the mouth. Lots of dry, hoppy resin flavours, with a slightly earthy, bitter finish. Well balanced, clean, with nice warmth from the alcohol. Very good.

Bottled. as Bear State. 25cl sample. The aroma has big citrus, some pine, hint of biscuit. Clear, golden coloured beer with a medium, slight off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, has citrus, bit biscuit, some pine. Dry finish. Goes down pretty easy. Very nice and clean IPA, aroma might be a bit more explosive though.

TET (1994) - FINLAND - MAY 19, 2015
A golden beer, a head is blond and medium. Aroma has tropical mangos and grapefruits, hint of papaiyas, sensitive. If the aroma was even cautious, then a taste has more rough notes. Citrusfruits and strong pine needles, hint of tropical fruits, a bitterness is strong and dominating, the body is quite dry but it’s not only a role of assistant. The bitterness is piney with some resin in the end. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Roughly hopped. Good and fresh IPA.
