2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden color. Butter and some hops in the aroma. Oily citric hopbitter but also buttery flavor. Diacetyl all over the place, partly ruining a good IPA. Oily mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (kaisla, Helsinki)
Lovely fruity hop aroma some sweet caramelly malts.. Slightly watery palate, pleasant carbonation. Very nice sweet malty body, some fruity hops, and some nice huskiness. Shame about the lthinness, if this was unfiltered it would be great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Inn Deep, Glasgow. It pours clear golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, soor plooms (boiled sweets), passion fruit, bread/fruit loaf and a touch of spice. The taste is crisp, earth, grass, wood, dough, toasty, light caramel, lemon and some soap with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle pours with a clear gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up some spicy somewhat yeasty notes followed by fruity malt sweetened citrus as well as a mineral note. The taste has a decent load of malt sweetened citrus hops creating a citrus gummy bear to sweet hard candy like sensation. Quickly the hops do get increasing bitter to midway and into the finish to the point of becoming pleasing tart grapefruit notes to a touch of lime. This achieves a tasty citrus hop bitterness with only echoes of the initial sweet citrus hop flavor into the finish. Darn nice IPA.
