3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at Standard Market. Certainly a big smack of hop in the nose and on the tongue, even in my little sample. A little estery for a big IPA, which gives it a fruity note playing off the hops. Bitterness seems only lightly piney and more juicy than citrusy. That may be because I was sampling wines before turning to Standard Market’s amazing tap list.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Pub Kultainen Apina.
Pours clear orange color with a small lasting head, leaves a nice lacing. Lots of tropical fruits on the nose, resinous hops, pine, subtle malts and sweet caramel. Flavor is sweet with mango, orange and some passion fruits, resinous hoppy bitterness, malty, very subtle hints of licorice on the aftertaste. Hop-oily mouthfeel. Alcohol warms a bit on the finish at first, starts to push through more towards the end. Balanced and quite deceptive fruity DIPA. Good.

Fine white head. Solid golden color. Dominating hop aroma in large amounts that is a little bit too much. Large hop taste with loads of caramell and firm body and bitterness.
