mjs (7259) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 (Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, on 2009-06-10) Orange and cloudy. Medium sized and almost white head. Fruity, sweet and hoppy aroma. Full bodied and little bit dry palate with medium carbonation. Fruitiness, yeast, hops, grass, citiricness, light sweetness and bitterness in taste. Fruity and harshly bitter aftertaste. 8-3-8-3-14=3.6

(Re-rate, bottle, 0.355 l, from Alko Arkadia, 20130219) This beer wasn’t cloudy but only a bit hazy. The harsh bitterness wasn’t present - yet. Still not so much better that an increase to the score would feel right.

gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Poured a darker gold. Nose was spicy, floral and citrus hops. Some candy sweetness. Flavor was a strange mix of belgian yeast character and C hops. Nice caramel malt sweetness and a not so overwhelming alcohol presence eventually balanced out the yeast/hop medley. Probably one of the best executions of a style i don’t really care for (belgian IPA).

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2009
(Bottled) Pale copper with a smallish, but firm head. Aroma of some warming alcohol, soft spiciness, some lemon and raisins. Spicy-alcoholic flavor with toffee maltiness and low bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Can’t really get the IPA from this, but nevertheless it’s an ok, spicy tripel with lots of maltiness.

Capa (3295) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Pours a clear golden orange with a large off-white head. A complex aroma of strong citrus hops and pleasant spices. Yeast, caramel malts, grapefruit, pine, and light must round out the aroma. Full bodied. This one is fun. Starts more tripel- with spices, yeast, earth, and that touch of must returns. It then moves to a much more bitter, hoppy flavor. Citrus, grapefruit, some grapefruit, with a caramel backbone. Finish is dry and bitter. Really fun to drink this beer.

3.5
HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a thin off-white head. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is of caramel, yeast, spice, hops, and fruit. The flavor was spicy and yeasty with caramel malt but overall dominated by a sweet fruityness. Medium bodied with a slightly spicy, hoppy finish.
