mikkos (306) - - JUN 14, 2013
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.

minihame2 (327) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2015
Murky dark brown colour, small tan head with some bubbles. Strong and smooth malty aroma, some caramel and raisins. Malty bitter taste but not overpoweringly so. Soft, oily mouthfeel, light carbonation. Nice earthy double IPA.

TEJA (1930) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle from Alko Finland. Big and lasting beige head. Clear deap golden amber color. Initial orange aroma that goes away to become cheesy and intence. Big hard bitterness and huge concetrated fruit taste. Big body.

Finn (5580) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2015
Flaske 500ml fra Alko Muonio. Drukket på Nerstranda 26 Okt 15 som belønning for at ratingene fra i vår/sommer/høst er kladdet! Mørk gyldenbrun. Lavt litt farget skum. Flotte filigranser. Behagelig - litt tung fruktig - aroma. Myk munnfølelse. God fylde. Godt moden frukt med et vinøst preg - på grensen til at alkoholen skinner gjennom.

adamnase (293) - Kronoby, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle from Alko. Pours hazy deep amber color, with a small to medium white head, lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, fruity hops. Sweet malty body, not strong hops but nice fruity touch, hint of alcohol. sweetish. but nice!

Rune (10011) - 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 (377) - 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 (80) - 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

PotjeBier (2278) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2015
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 (96) - 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.
