Drank side by side with nögne two captains. This was good, yet lags behind on all aspects. As a finnish beer this is smething really different and well balanced, but compared to two captains, well... Sweet aroma of caramel, glue and alcohol. Balanced mouthfeel and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Was expecting a bit more refreshing taste. Good in general, as a finnish beer - excellent.

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 (329) - 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!

Sample from Visionthing , thanks a lot! Golden color, good foam. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, toffee: medium intensity & light hops. Medium / full body & complexity. Some sweetness - well balanced. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
