Tried @ The Bishops Arms Folklungagatan, Stockholm. Slightly unclear dark red color, small to medium sized off-white head that’s gone quickly but leaves a nice lacing. Smell is very fruity, hoppy and bitter. Taste malts, hops, bitter, fruityness, citrus and grapefruit. Medium body, medium carbo. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Draught. Copper colour with a mediumsized off-white head that leaves lace. Head also lasts for pretty much as long it takes to drink the beer. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fudge, mild fruity and nectary notes with a slight spicyness. Flavour is rather similar with some mild toasted maltyness as well. Balanced. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Draught at Kitty’s, Helsinki, Finland.
Clear reddish amber colour with small off-white head.
Aroma is quite uncommon for an IPA. Rosebud, floral hops, biscuits and dryness.
Flavour is more IPA like. Hoppy bitterness, resin, floral notes, malt and some yeast. Drinkable and uncommon.

Draught @ The Rover. Pours tiny hazy amber with a creamy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while clinging to the glass leaving lots of thick sticky lacing. Smell is sweet, malty and fruity with whole grain bread, dark grapes, golden syrup, resinous wood, overripe lemons, dark plums, caramel and subtle hints of moist moss and alcohol. Taste is is slightly sweet, bitter, fruity and malty with dark rye bread, prunes, raisins in rum, resinous wood, moist soil, leather, dark honey, lemon balm, grape juice and straw. Mouthfeel is tiny round, slightly astringent, slightly oily bitter and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter, herbal and fruity with dark bread, lemon balm, honey, prunes, raisins, moist soil and wood. Quite interesting... hlkanga (204) - - AUG 4, 2012

Deep clear amber color, big beige cloudy head, lace. Piney, a bit resiny aroma, slightly yeasty too. Medium-bodied. Piney, pine needles, sweet fruityness in the background (Scottish yeast?). Decent.

Keg at the Craft. Clear bright amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a crisp trailing edge. Creamy and minerally sweet malt with an odd nutty - perfumey thing going on. A little citrus underneath but dominant flavour is this nutty caraway perfume thing. Finishes semi dry. Left field but okay.
Pours a clear, deep amber, with a white head.
Hoppy, spicy aroma, caramel, spruce, apricot, yeast, strawberries, passion fruit.
Off-dry, medium to fll bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2.
Fruity, hoppy taste, spruce, malt, apricot, crushed strawberries (!), passion fruit, yeast, caramel. Feels a bit one dimensional, end quite sticky, with an aggressive bitterness. (2012-07-04) michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of malt, hops, fruit, yeast, and slight pear. Poured orange/copper in color with a large, creamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Lightly hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, malt, fruit, light berries, and a hint of apricot. Medium body. Medium dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, medium bitter, fruit, berry, malt, hop, yeast finish. 7.1%ABV is completely hidden throughout. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2012
Draught @ Naamat, Tampere.
Pours a copper colour with a firm creamy head. Aroma of English hops, floral notes, nuts and some dry maltiness. Flavour of bitter floral hops, grass, biscuity malts, sweet toffee, nuts, metals and sweet berries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, malty and actually quite bitter finish. English-type of an IPA, not my thing.
