auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 3, 2013
On tap at Cask Republic - New Haven, CT. Plain, green, planty aroma. The flavor follows through in a lot of bitterness and coppery malt. Clean, but yellow with raw hoppiness. I can’t get into this, it feels like an overly bitter Amber Ale with young flavor hops.

A red amber color with a big white head. Aroma was hoppy and fruity almost bigger than the taste. The flavor is hoppy but balanced out and tempered with some fruit notes, not as big as I was expecting but a very nice, drinkable, recommendable double IPA.

rosenbergh (6087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
12 fl bottle. Malja, Kuopio, Finland. Cloudy reddish amber colour with a tiny white head. Fruity head with alcohol, bitterness and malt in the aroma. Flavour is really strong bitterness... All is grassy hops, malt and mild alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Stinky messy sticky sweaty wrestling mat. Pooey! Tastes of soap. Scrape the tongue! Mellows a bit after a few sips. Levels off at just "a bad hoppy ale". Which is better than the bad hoppy lager I just had.

(Bottle, 0.355 l - bottled on 01/27/14, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20140411) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, malts and mildly mango. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, mango, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A balanced but too mellow brew.
