330ml bottle (Kitty’s, Helsinki)k0mpsa (2964) - Tuusula, FINLAND - APR 5, 2013
Adequate hopple sweet APA aroma. A touch cleanery, a dull piney citrus. Sticky palate, crisp carbonation. Retronasals quite zesty. An OK pale orange, and a brief tight white head. Typical brewdog sticky mashy malts, but less offensive than normal. The hops are pleasantly bitter, quite herbal. Finish is resiny and dry. Late finish even a bit nutty. Pretty good for things classified as APA.
Bottle at o’haras, tampere. Hazy deep golden color, small white head. Lovely hoppy fruity aroma. Malty body on the back, hops and fruits, medium body, dry finish. Nice summer beer. Beerhammaren (1793) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
.33l bottle @ Vihreä Haltiatar
Pours light copper with low head. Aroma is hops, citrus fruits. Some roasted malts. Flavor is hops and citrus. Dry palate, a bit watery. RexTalionis (3747) - FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 11/02/2014. Pours amber in color with a foamy whitish head. Grapefruit and forrest pine in aroma. Bready malty and quite dry doughy elements in taste, perhaps that’s what the rye contributes here. But the grassy piney notes takes over after a while. Something herbal is in taste as well but that note is quite subtle. Grassy bitter with light fruityness in finish. I’m missing the juicyness in this one.

Aroma is rather hoppy with fruits and gooseberry bush. Flavour has hops, gooseberry bush, some fruitiness and hints of nettles. Too much gooseberry bush here, but decent anyway.

Poured clear golden with a small froathy white head. Typical "brewdog" aroma with grape, pine and resin, some moderated malt. So a light body, easy drinkable one with a hop dominated profile. Resin, grape and simcoe;-) cheers!
