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.
Aivan liian kitkerä omaan makuun. Haju ja pullo kyllä hyvin miellyttäviä, mutta --> Ei jatkoon! Theydon_Bois (21482) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015

Bottle shared in Bermondsey - big thanks to TBone for this highly rated treat. Pours unclear amber with with a frothy off-white head. The nose has a lot of pine, some toasty leaves, grain, bread, orange rind. Medium sweet flavor with oily pine, bitter grass, grainy bread. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Strong grassy bitterness, more pine, some gooey resin. Nice beer.

Tuhti humalan aromi, sitrusta, greippiä, aavistus mäntyä. Vaahto kaunis mutta lyhytikäinen. Tyylikkään punertavan kuparinen väri, hieman samea mutta läpi näkyvä. Centennial maussa vahvasti läsnä, kiperän katkeroitu. Tasapainoinen maku, kihelmöi kielellä ja suun reunoilla. Pitkä jälkimaku, herättää janon. Laatua Porista.

10.6.2014. Fruity, pine a bit sweet taste, plenty of fruity hops. A bit sweeter side but perfectly balanced for my taste. Unfortunately later batches have been worse. jukkar (132) - FINLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Very hoppy and bitter taste. Plenty of citrus and herbs in aroma. Dark brown color, cloudy, very minimal head. Full body, thick feel, average carbonation, long finish. I liked this one a lot. mtu71 (363) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle, from Spiegelau IPA glass. Small ochre head, medium lacing. Hazy copper. Big citric hop aroma with grapefruit, grass and spicies. Dry and thick palate, medium bodied. Taste is dominated by grapefruit but has good maltyness and bitterness. Very good IPA. One of my favourites of the style.
