lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2012
650 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a white foamy head which collapses quickly. Aroma of strong juicy fruits, floral hops and citrus. Flavour of strong juicy fruits again, lemon, resin, grapefruit, very mellow caramel malts and some herbal notes . Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a warming, long lingering bitter finish. Very good drinkability and overall a nice juicy IPA.

Bottled. Slightly hazy orangeish amber colour with a big foamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is tropical fruits, some floral notes, nectar, mild honey and some caramel and toffee as well. Flavour is rather similar with a nice caramelly and fruity finish. Nice bitterness as well.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy dark amber with a creamy, sand coloured head. The aroma holds grapefruity, mild pine and woodsy hops alongside nutty and cookie-like malt. Undertones of flowers, oranges, caramel, grain, touch of vanilla, a touch of fruit candy, whisper of compost and dried herbs. The flavor is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of robust/nutty/cookie-like malt and grapefruity/grassy/piney/floral hops. The mouthfeel is creamy, round and soft with a near medium carbonation. Grapefruity, woodsy and almond paste. Medium bodied.

BeerBaboon (2021) - FINLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma has plenty of hops in it. Mostly piny hops. Flavour is hoppy, bitter and somewhat sweet. Good beer but lacks something to put it past 40 points.

maekchu (3607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2012
On tap at Tadgs. Great stinky hop aroma. Cloudy orange color. Hops dominate the initial; a mild sweet fruitiness emerges in mid palate; final leaves strong tracks of hop bitterness. Very good.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Release #61: Tangerine/mandarin/tropical citrus aroma and flavor. Stronger fruitiness in aftertaste. Spicy, floral. Some yeasty aroma/flavor. Pretty sweet; but not too much. Firm bitterness. Release #52: Nice citrus hops dominate the aroma. Sweet malt flavor. Hop flavor is citrus-y and spicy, and more nectarine/pineapple in the finish. Strong bitterness; more in aftertaste. Hides the 9.1% ABV really well.

Bottle from circle liquor. Pours hazy orange with a big white head that stays for a while and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is mostly earthy citrus with some light floral notes. Well balanced beer with a hop and citrus sweetness. Easy to drink.
