3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is fresh and sweet with citrus and grapefruit.
Flavor is fruity and sweet but bit thin and doesn’t last very long.
Still, great IPA considering the low ABV.

33cl Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange colour. Aroma is tropical fruits, mango or pineapple, and some caramel-notes. Flavour is medium sweet and very fruity. The tropical fruits keep lingering nicely with a decent bitter finish. Surprised me ’cause didn’t think much of it last time.

Oranssinrusehtava samea olut todella paksulla, höttöisellä valkoisella kivasti pitkiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu makean karamellisen sekä eksoottisen hedelmäinen. Maku karamellisen makea ja jälkipuoleltaan katkeran humaloitu, eksoottisennhedelmäinen ja jopa greippinen. Pitkä katkera jälkimaku.

Very sour. Top is thick and gourgeous. Foam stays long in the glass. Orange and grape fruit aromas. It feels like there is not malts at all. Disappointment. Sourness is overhelming.

Enjoyed it in Lahti Brygga beerbar at the harbour. The color is hazy orange with tall white head. Aroma is some citrus, hops, like an IPA has to be. Taste is also like an IPA, with bitter body and finish, but it needs more"Bulls", like many other finish ipa’s. Maybe because of the low alcohol%. I still enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Helsinki 23/5 2016. 33 cl bottle from S-Market. Very modernistic "M" on the label that only informs you that you are drinking an IPA in addition to this. Very Finnish. Pours hazy golden orange with a very big head. Settles creamy thick crown of foam with impressive lacing. Aroma is fruity with passion fruit, peach and mango. Light citric sour notes. Very low carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor has distinct bitterness and balanced by subdued sweetness. Maybe a little watery. Lingering bitterness in aftertaste. Quite dry finish. Fine and nicely bitter IPA. There is a long way from Finland to India - so you need an extra shot of hops.

Brown, caramel coloured body with a foamy tan head. Slightly hoppy IPA aroma, grass and pine, some metallic tones even though I had a bottle. Bitter taste, although not so strong. Smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Pretty good for a such a low abv.

33cl bottle from S-Market, Helsinki. Pours slightly hazy amber with a lasting, off-white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with citrusy notes, pine, malt and hints of tropical fruits and herbs. Moderate sweet with nice hoppy flavours and a decent bitterness. Surprisingly tasty, nice and bitter and still very sessionable.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle at home. Pours dark amber, with small white head. Carbonation is really soft, too soft for my liking. Its not watery though, probably because of the hoppiness. Aroma has fruit, pine from hops. Light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness.
