3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle @ William K Kurvi, Helsinki
Pours dark reddish with a small white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, floral notes, berries and maltiness. Taste is smooth, slightly metallic and ripe fruity with hints of berries and floral notes. Finish is smooth and bitter with some stingy fruitness, floral and herbal notes. Quite untypical hop profile, not your typical IPA.

330ml bottle from Redmonds. Copper coloured, frothy off white head, doesnt last. Sweet fruity resiny hops in the aroma. Flavour follows closely, sugray sweet maltiness followed by some middling hop bitterness, Light bodied, a little overly fizzy. Finish is more sweet than bitter. A bit homebrewish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a nonick pint glass. Copper color, small white head, almost no lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, caramel malts, some bread. Taste is similar with an odd lemon character, not off putting just odd. Nice finish. Overall a hoppier English IPA, but very reminiscent of a traditional brewer trying to break into the craft scene.
