@ Basunen 15-8-29: Tydlig humle i doften. Smaken är rätt besk men rätt god. Mycket fin balans. belgis (521) - - AUG 26, 2015
Settle aroma. Nice caramel color. Intense dry hopppiness . Crazy. Maybe too much for me. Roasty. Powerfull beer but only in right context. anstei (2246) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a nice lacing. Slightly hoppy aroma, some fruit, interesting to explore. Very bitter taste, but suited really well with the rest of the beer. A beer as a good IPA should be! MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:Hikeg (295) - - MAY 20, 2015
Conifers grow through caramel, as candied oranges move into earthy, piney bitterness in this effervescent IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam stays atop the misty amber.
-This tastes like a Corne du Diable from Finland.
-Mouthfeel is quite bubbly for the style.
-A rye-like spiciness is felt; probably my imagination.
-Flavor profile is balanced throughout.
Bottle. Thx Timo!
Large frothy, off-white long lasting head. Good lacing, medium amber body. Moderate malty aroma with nutty, caramel and hay notes. Heavy hops with grass, resin and grapefruit. Earthy medium yeast with dough. Notes of banana, wood and clove. Medium sweet, heavy bitter with long aftertaste. Medium body with oily texture. Carbonation average. Bitter finish. Batch 8/15

Copper, hazy body, with a small, creamy, yellowish head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, stone fruits, pineapple, biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, lemon zest, pine, stone fruits, black tea, biscuit, some honey.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, piney,
Tasty. Pretty strong, with a zesty and piney hop bite, but well balanced by a full malt backbone. Not as easy as other IPAs, pretty filling, but really enjoyable.
