On tap @ Rotterdam,Hki. Hazy amber, thick frothy head. Sweet, citrusy aroma, berries, hops. Flavor similar with yeasty notes as well. Punk ipa, sweeter, but still recognizable. I like this one. Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - SEP 20, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Alla spina. Limpido e pallido color arancio con un sottile velo di schiuma bianca. Investe subito il naso con aromi fruttati, agrumati, tropicali e delicatamente resinosi e luppolati; gusto amaro e ben bilanciato con note di luppolo, frutta fresca ed un finale erbaceo e persistente. Corpo medio, effervescenza ’’giusta’’ e strutturata a dovere: una versione più secca e aromatica della già ottima Punk. jpkeskinen (515) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Drank as a draught at a bar. Tastes similar as the punk IPA but is a bit sweeter and fresher. Really good! yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2013
On tap at Patricks. An unclear, orange colored beer with a dense finger thick off-white head leaving curtains. The aroma is on the hoppy side, sugary too, with lots of tropical fruits. Some orange peel and a little peppery touch. It’s sweet on the palate, with a balancing bitterness. Orange peel, pine cones and some pale malts. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Long finish. There’s a tad too much yeast flavour here, else it’s a fine one. 130919 FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2013

Pale orange, tiny keggy head. One of the most blackcurrant leafy aromas I’ve ever smelt. Fruity, and clearly with a grungy Belgian tang. Not all the way to saison grunge, but part of the way there. Massively fruity in the mouth, but the raw earthy malts are there too. Palate is sweet and would be smooth if it wasn’t for the quite harsh carbonation. Some sips are quite lovely, worth a 7, but others are quite unpleasant, very dirty, and harshly cat-pissy. Some spicy savoury food aspects, far eastern, or even subcontinental. A tough one to call, could be anything between 2.5 and 3.3.
Draught @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, KristiansandMarstonlad (885) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, pine, citrus, orange and peach. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long piney and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
Tap at WilliamK, Helsinki. A clear color of bronze with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is overall hoppy and very fruity - citrus, orange - with some herbal and sweetish yeasty notes, probably from the Belgian yeasts. Taste is crisp and fresh, easily drinkable. Bitterness is medium; hops bite, but not very deep. Mostly fruitiness and some grassy notes in the taste. Light to medium body with average to lively carbonation. Nice, easy IPA but I prefer a bit stronger and richer ones. tiong (7278) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Draught @ William K Sello, EspooBenzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2013
Pours clear golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of spices, fruity and grassy hops, malts and earthy yeast. Taste is yeasty, fruity and spicy with notes of grassy hops and lemon. Finish is fresh hoppy, grassy and spicy with hints of fruits. Quite tasty and balanced Belgian style IPA.
Draught @ Bishops Arms Gustav Adols Torg Malmö. Slightly unclear orange color, medium sized white head. Aroma is lightly malty, very fruity, hops, orange, mandarin. Taste lightly malts, hops, again very fruity, orange, citrus, lightly grassy, nicely bitter. Don’t really get that Belgian yeast which I think is a good thing. Medium body and carbonation. Good stuff! jookos (6762) - FINLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Light copper coloured, filtered. Fruity hoppy nose- oranges, currants, green berries. A hayish peppery maltyness. Body is dry, medium light bodied, cleansing. Lots of hops, peppery yeasty flavours, a bit of brewdogian ultraclean caramel. I like the fruityness, the slight green hoppyness. And being brewdog&super clean, I find it quite enjoyable. Basically a peppery version of punk ipa.
