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!

Kauge (361) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle as a gift from Espoo. BB 03.2015. Pours a very murky non-specific muddy colour... Head is light beige and very big with thick lacing. Nose is very fresh, pungent, musky and sweet hops, proper malt backbone and a caramelly background. Already the first sniff indicates this is going to be a sweet bomb. Taste... yeah... almost unbearably sweet, but with loads of fresh, piney and citrusy hop bitterness to help numb the sweetness, with a hint of alcohol. Body medium, carbonation maybe slightly below average but with certain prickliness, palate soft. Overall - kind of good stuff but the excessive sweetness ruins it for me.

50 cl from Alko, shared. Rich nose with notes citrus fruits and hops. Smooth medium bodied palate with lengthy and tasty finish. Still lacks multi dimensionality and bitterness of IPA.

Tap from villi waino in Helsinki. Dark amber with white-off head that stays an inch thick for about 5 min after pouring. Bit caramelly on the nose but no exotic citrusy fruits. Residual sweetness of toasted malt probably kills the estery/fruity aromas on the nose. Taste dusty, honey, woody no -exotic- fruits really. Overall good double IPA but bit more fruits and less malt sweetness would maybe make better beer. Any idea what hops and how dried hopped was it?

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
Might be the best IPA I had in Finland, and yet again a Dane is involved. Splendid balance between fruity and bitter hops with a good mouthfull of malts. Refreshing but with those interesting and cloudy rougher edges I think make a good IPA. A dirty little beast this!
