Tide (4221) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle at Black Door. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, hops, mango, resin and a bit of caramel. Bitter finish with grapefruit and resin. Good, enjoyable IPA. Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2013
Bit too sweet and malty, decent piney aroma. Dark amber, bit sticky after a while. Quite floral and bitter, not much citrus. grainmerchant (11) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2013
a malt driven IPA that lacks much hop aroma and flavour. It is like it was there and it has been baked out. The only bottles I have had have been fairly oxidised and not the freshest. A IPA that tastes much better than the US aged imports but not Australia’s finest. Malt sweetness, low hop aroma and bitterness prevail jookos (6970) - FINLAND - OCT 2, 2013

Amber clear, chestnut tones. Malty slightly sweet caramel nose with some nuttyness and herbal piney hops. Full flavoured body, dry, well bittered. Not harsh though, feels just powerful, packing a punch. Real nice body and flavours. Good start to these aussie weeks here.

Lovely fruity hoppy aroma. Deep orange, small tight head. Lovely full malty body sweetish malts, sweetish fruity aroma hops. Very nice IPA, great balance.
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Hilpeä Hauki, 20131001) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, fresh grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, pine, malts, hint of caramell and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good hoppy brew. Despite the long trave the beer appeared to be in quite good condition. Svesse (8752) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2013
(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, orange peel, pink grapefruit, lychee, caramel and a touch of ginger. Fruity taste with notes of citrus peel, grapefruit, dried apricots, hints of rye bread, lychee and a finish with a fresh citric, floral bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Lots of taste and fresh hops, still well balanced and highly drinkable. Nice one. gnoff (10858) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2013
