3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours blonde with a hint of a haze and a nice lacy head. The nose has lemon and oatmeal. The taste has more lemon and oatmeal. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a nicely balanced finished. Overall, this is not what I would call an IPA but it’s quite a good session blonde. It grows.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours (pale) golden with a white head. Malty and slightly hoppy aroma with citrus and hints of caramel and pine. Medium sweet with caramel and citrus and a slightly spicy finish with a fairly decent bitterness. Ok beer, but not my favourite kind of IPA, a bit too much on the sweet side and not enough hops.
