Draught @ Pikkulintu, HelsinkiRexTalionis (3825) - FINLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of ripe fruity hops, grass, resin and caramely malts. Taste is malty, caramely and sweetish with notes of resin and ripe fruity hops. Finish is malty and sweet. Quite malty and full bodied IPA.
Draught. Pours hazy dark orange in color with a small off-white head. Pine, bready malty notes and light grassy notes. Fairly bitter in taste, some pine here as well. Some sweeter notes too in aftertaste. A bit smoother and this could pass as a double ipa. Tide (4566) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Draught at Pikkulintu. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with caramel, hops, tropical fruits, a bit of alcohol and resin. Bitter finish with grapefruit and caramel. Good IPA. ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Light copper-hued body, small white head. Nose is nutty malts, red berries and hints of oranges and grass. Taste is sweet nuts, caramel, almonds, grains, grass, hints of peaches and resin. Low on bitter/sweetness integration; the two feels as if standing side by side rather than being integrated features of the beer. Also, it does taste a bit...strange, in search of a better term. Full body, medium carbonation. OK, but far from the best Närke can do.

On tap at Bishops ARms in Örebro. Fruity and yeasty smell, feels belgo. A note of smoke. Sweet taste with quite a high residual sweetness, also caramel. Hard to put a type on this beer, doesn’t feel like an IPA, more like a dark belgian. Not quite a bruin either. daje (4548) - NORWAY - JUL 7, 2013
Tap at Haand Festival 2013. Ligh amber body, white head. Aroma of toffee, flowery hops, citrus. Taste of caramel, citrus fruits, prunes. robust bitterness, lasting bittersweet finish. Nice one. Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This one pours a blurry deep wood golden body and it has a small quickly sidesticking light beige top. Nice sweet on the nose. Lots of caramelized caramel, lots of honey melon, some zesty fruity thing and some subtle grassy hops. It’s really sweet this! Loaded with malty sweetness it’s definitely on the sweet side of the scale. Really sticky on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft prickling. Lots if raisin sweetness also here. By all means it liking it, but it feels way to sweet for a ipa. Light mouthdrying finish and aftertaste. 25.05.2013 larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2013
Small offwhite head. Clear amber body. Fruity resiny earthy aroma with caramelly notes. Dry-sweet earthy lemon sherbet taste with sugary toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral perfumy resiny aftertaste with orangey spicy notes. Slightly oily. Nice and drinkable. Surprisingly sweet. (0.15l draft at Haand Festival 2013.)
