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.

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

50cl bottle, shares. Gift from Finnish friends. Red/Amber color, cloudy. Big, off white head, uneven, good retention. Aroma’s: resinous, sweet fruit. Retronasal: sweet&sour fruit, karamel, hoppy acidity, apple. Flavor is rather bitter, light sweet, caramel. Medium bodied. Taste develops slowly towards a firm earthy, long lasting bitterness.

stoigniew (87) - 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 (6967) - 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 (225) - 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.
