rosenbergh (11653) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Gyle 2376. BB Nov 2014. Kaisla, Helsinki, Finland.
Hazy amber colour with small off-white head. Floral hops, fruitiness and maltiness in the aroma. English style floral hoppiness, some bitterness, maltiness and dryness in the flavour. Rather tasty.

3.4
Marstonlad (925) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours hazy bronze with medium-sized dense head. Aroma has floral hoppiness with fresh fruity elements and some maltiness in the background. Taste is bitter and especially in the finish dry. Taste is quite typical for a British IPAs, hop presence isn’t as strong as in American IPAs. Fruity flavours dominate. Palate is medium bodied and slick, very drinkable. This is indeed a British interpretation of IPA, not as robust - or rich - as American ones but more balanced and easier to drink.

3.3
Tide (4058) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle at bar. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, grass, grapefruit and hops. A bit thin body, mostly hops. Nice, experimental IPA.

jamesie1857 (2267) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
500ml Bottle - NIce golden copper body with a medium fluffy white head with a little retention and lacing. Lots of fruit in the aroma: passion fruit, grapefruit, citrus in general. Creamy palate with some noticeable carbonation. The flavour is a repeat of the aroma but with a nice bitter finish and quite prominent alcohol. Quite good.

3.5
danlo (3127) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
500ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine Shop Darlington. Poured a clear golden orange amber colour, frothy fine white head and aroma of spicy citrus. Taste is malt caramel with pine and a citrusy note, through to a slightly woody light dry bitter finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Quite drinkable IPA.

3.9
simonblaine (576) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow/orange with frothy head. A light caramel with an earthy pine needle citrous aroma. Tasty beer, this brewery has yet to dissapoint.

3.4
oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2012
Bottled. Deep goldeny orange colour with a small bubbly/fluffy head which leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, some spruce, sweet fruityness as well as some slight herbal notes. Flavour is rather similar with some resiny and nectary notes as well. Quite rich carbonation.

3.3
berkshirejohn (6585) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Amber with a thin white head; rather muted, gentle aroma, piney, citrus, and spicy; full bodied and hoppy from the start, quite spritzy in the mouth, with a rough, woody flavour; and a rather nettley finish.

3.4

280912. Bottle at salhojankadun pub, tampere. Pours hazy golden with a nice head. Aroma citrusy hops, fruits, spices. Fruity sweet taste. Hoppy for an english beer. Not Bad.
