3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Oak Barrel, Helsinki-V airport. Pours hazy golden with a little white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma displays prominent tropical fruitiness with especially orange and mango present. Taste is dryish, medium bitter initially but building toward finish. Very aromatic American hoppiness; tropical fruits and some grass. The palate is medium bodied, crisp and highly drinkable, moderately carbonated. Excellent fruity and hoppy IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citrusy fruity hops with heavy maltiness of caramel, biscuit, bread, in the nose
Pours a very hazy golden Amber color, didn't realize this was bottle conditioned. Lots of yeast floaters. Small white head
Very well balanced in flavor for an IPA. Betty and citrus hops dominate, but bready and caramel malts have a huge role.
Medium bodied with medium co2, short
Enjoyable IPA. Well balanced. I could drink a few of these without getting palette burnout.

Flaske fra Kihoskh, delt med Ovesen på tappekveld: klar dyp gylden med fint skum. Tropical fruits galore, en fest for nesegrevet og munnen, og drøvelen protesterer heller ikke - dette er elegante saker som glir uanfektet over drøvelen.

Great double IPA - citrus and exotic fruit from the hops with a grapefruit bitterness against a medium bodied bready malt. Lots of punch flavour. A little sweet and a lot bitter.

Pours medium orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, bready malts, and light sweet malts.
