BBE 01/10/14 - Pours yellowish with a small white head. Aroma of fresh fruity hop pallets, berries, grass, pine, hints of spices. Taste is fruity and salty with notes of toffee, caramel, berries, citrus and spices. Finish is bitter with some fruity hops, salty notes, hints of stingy seabuckthorn notes. Nice, quite unique IPA with some spicy and stingy notes.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2012
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Hazy yellow brown color. Aromas of perfumed sea-buckthorn (or cloudberry) and pepper. Bitter taste with sea-buckthorn, juniper, menthol and biscuity maltiness. Hard long lingering bitterness with juniper. Medium body. Sea-buckthorn fits quite nicely to IPA but finish is quite hard, maybe partly due to juniper.

haukur (1200) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 17, 2012
nice looking ipa, cloudy with a firm head. Very hoppy and fruity aroma. Dryness is a bit over the top with the hop bitterness. Interesting.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2012
Draught at Queens Head, Stockholm. Muddy orange, rich head. Huge aroma of mango-like hops and - is that buckthorn? Fairly sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Massive hop flavour. Resiny and quite aggressive. A rich array of weird interesting flavours. Citric massively bitter finish. A bit sterile, like many beers brewed at deProef.

stefannilssons (1300) - SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2012
Det första som slår mig hur otroligt grumlig ölen är och det känns ju som en bra start. Smaken bär inslag av svart vinbär, mango och sur disktrasa, beskan upplever jag som lite konstig och kroppen är något tunn.

Senka (345) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Bottle from Gambrinus, Tartu. Strong pine aroma, rather hoppy.. Orange, cloudy, medium carbonation. Sea-buckthorn gives that color, and juniper gives specific "pine" aroma. Full bodied beer, creamy, thick texture. This is quite interesting brew. I have not tried similar combination before. If you drink sea-buckthorn juice, than you will find plenty of that in this beer. As for juniper - In case of this beer I possibly would doubled the concentration for next brews. If you see the bottle of it somewhere - get it. Update 16.02.14 - I think it is the third batch, that hit the taps. Much better than 2nd one, and as amazing as first one. Fill a bit thicker this time.

baggio (316) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle@Home Apperance: Hazy yellow with a small, white, head. Aroma: Berries, Hops, Hint of citrus. Taste: Caramel, Peach, Citric notes, Berries, Hint of pine. Palate: Fruit with lots of bitterness. Ends dry. After hearing my friends raving about this one on draught i had high hopes for this beer but i feel i was kind of let down. A tasty ipa but i feel something is missing.

sunevdj (3052) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a very hazy golden with an off-white head. Smells of hops with tiny toothpaste hints. Sweet and quite bitter. Lots of hoppy aromas, especially centennial. Also spicy aromas of mint and black pepper. Medium to full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Long, dry, peppery finish with some residual sugars and hints of mints. Good stuff!
