Gramoit (494) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
(Bottle is a year after its Best before date, this is taken under consideration). Quite a malty pale ale with some hoppy flavours. Still quite good and very palatable. Would like to have again from a newer bottle next time. RexTalionis (3797) - FINLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Draught. Cloudy orange, thin whitish head. Fruity, some yeast and sweet malty in aroma. Fairly bitter in taste with some yeasty notes as well. Light spicyness, some orange peel in flavor is detected. Grassy bitterness in finish. Tide (4325) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle at bar. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with caramel, citrus, grapefruit, yeast and pine. Pretty decent body with mostly hops. Nice IPA, not too exciting. VastActiv (7583) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle 0.5l at Kittys, Helsinki. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, grape and hops. Beer5000 (6731) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2013
500 ml bottle. A pretty much clear, dark golden body with a big, foamy off-white head. Aroma is mostly mature fruit and resin with light malt. Flavour is sweet pale malt, general fruity, hint of marmalade and pretty bitter. Fine body and bitter aftertaste. Decent but I miss some depth here, this is mostly a bitter beer with light, sweet malt and almost anonymous fruit. Feels too one-dimensional grassy bitter. Maybe the bottle is too old and has lost its freshness, but BBF date is still a few months ahead.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Lambertseter enjoyed at homeFoffern (1982) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2013
Dark amber red, massive tanned head. Smells of grapefruit, citrus zests, malts and caramel. Medium sweet, good dark malt tones. Heavy bitter, quite heavy on the resins, also some citrus zests. A real nice IPA, quite dry, dominated by the hops for sure through the aroma and finish
Bottle at home. Has a cloudy orange colour with a pretty big light beige creamy head. A nice fruity hoppy touch on the aroma with apricot and some floral and rye. Fruity is also the flavour with resin and lots of pine, and grassy hops rolling over in the end. Has rich and soft mouthfeel, and a heavy bitterness. Has a nice aroma but maybe too much bitterness in the flavour in my opinion, and feels a bit unbalanced. Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 13, 2012
Würzig hopfiger Antrunk, deutlich grasig. Etwas brotig, intensive Bitterkeit. Der Hopfen bleibt intensiv, der Hintergrund ist fast langweilig. Trocken, zum Ende weniger stark hopfig, dafür sehr bitter. 11/11/8/10/8/10 ABS (1108) - Stokke, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2012
Pours very brown. A lot of white, foamy head. Alcohol and hop nose. bitter. dry mouth feel. Fruit, hop, grass and alcohol aroma. A lot of alcohol warmth for a beer with just 5,7% abv. good IPA. wyzzywyz22 (2752) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle, Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Hazy amber pour with a thin, bubbly off white head. Sweet aroma of cat piss, citrus. Some decent fruity hoppage in the flavour. alongside some caramel notes. Well balanced and very drinkable. Steadily building bitter finish. Decent stuff.
