andrepintado (1636) - Lisbon, - JUL 11, 2013
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!

Hideipa (4) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015 does not count
De couleur orange-brunâtre et opaque, elle laisse une jolie mousse beige qui colle au verre. On distingue un arôme houblonné floral et résineux ainsi qu’une touche sucrée caramel. En bouche, on retrouve une résine qui donne une amertume bien dosée. Cette amertume est accompagnée par un malt très caramel voire quelques petites notes de torréfactions. Peu de note d’agrume. Finale toute en amertume et en caramel. Corps assez rond (moyen à fort) avec une texture huileuse.

Unde (435) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Muddy brown colour with nice cream colour head and lots of lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, pines, caramel and grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel, then the hops kick in with citrus, grapefruit and pines. Quite bitter ending, this one needed a bit time to appreciate the flavours. Seemed a bit rough with the first couple of sips but then you started to get into it. Quite nice Double IPA.

Bottle from my Secret Santa 2014, many thanks Hermod! Trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit einer schönen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Kaugummi, leicht fruchtig, bitter hopfig, Aprikosen. Geschmack kräftig malzig, gering bitter, trocken fruchtig, Dörrobst.

Tranquillity (1430) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottled. Dark brown and reddish body, skinny white head. The aroma is very hoppy, with some grass and ginger as a bonus. The taste is bitter first, but grows into a more mature flowery fullness. Long bitter and balanced finish.

tlind2 (1191) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. Murky amber color, off-white head. Strong, hoppy aroma. Rich, hoppy flavor with grapefruit and resin. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice.

Toomio (270) - Joensuu, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Salmiakkinen maku. Ei kitkerää humalaa. Paksu olemus ja sisumainen, pastillimainen maku.

0,5 pullo@ koti. Kauniin samea, väri kastanjanruskean ja tumman karamellin väliltä. Tuoksussa selkeästi hedelmäistä humalaa, mallasta. Maussa humalaa, mäntyä, mallasta, karamellia.

Kauge (410) - 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.

Lambister (249) - FINLAND - DEC 1, 2014
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.
