50cl bottle thanks to Miksu. Dark copper to brown color with no head. Bitterness is quite high, sourness is low. Carbonation is soft. Aroma is caramel, hop, herb, honey, spices and wood. Nice aroma!

Rune (9496) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2015
500ml bottle bought at Alko Arkadia. Pours a two-finger thick head slowly diminishing while leaving lacing rings down the glass. Cloudy dark apricot coloured body. Dried fruity aromas joined by earthy malts. Plums, apricot and mid-sweet malty flavours. Lingering bittersweet ending. Well bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Pleasing, not easy to drink though (hotel room, Helsinki 26.09.2015).

villevav (364) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
[2015-08-14] Tummanruskea, samea, tiheä vaaleanruskea vaahto. Tuoksussa toffeeta, mämmimäistä maltaisuutta ja katkeruutta. Maku on IPA:ksi varsin mieto humalinniltaan. Runko on täyteläisen maltainen, hiilihappoja verrattain miedosti.

Beers0mniac (38) - Joensuu, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Cloudy red-brown color with medium white head. Quite inviting aroma: sweet caramel malts with hint of fruits. Taste is first sweet caramel malts then it turns to a long bitter finish with grapefruits. Overall an awesome beer

stoigniew (88) - Łęczna, POLAND - APR 25, 2015
W aromacie nuty kwaśne, podchodzące pod belgijskie, nachalne, gryzące, zapach włoszczyzny i warzyw. W smaku ewidentny por i natka pietruszki, nie rozpoznaje żadnego chmielu. Nieco plastiku, goryczka jest mocna, solidna i hardkorowa od samego początku. Piwo ma datę do sierpnia wiec jeszcze 4 miechy i nie ma mowy o przeterminowaniu. Nigdy w życiu nie piłem wadliwego Double IPA - to pierwsze IPA, które mnie przeciąża. Ciężko pijalne.

Svesse (7031) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
(Draught at Bryggeri Helsinki, Helsinki, 30 March 2015) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, caramel, orange marmalade, treacle-toffee and resin. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, caramel, resiny hops and a finish with a certain alcohol bite and a generous resiny bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made DIPA. Very nice.

Turboninja (237) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 1, 2015
Tap @ Artturi, Tampere, Finland. Medium, bitter and sour aroma with sweet dark fruits and a hint of butter. Orange/brown color with medium hazy liquid and medium white head. Strong/medium taste with ripe peach and other fruits, some plum. Bitter and bit unbalanced. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with sweet malts and some fruity aromas. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall taste gives better picture than taste, bit raw but individual.
