Kaksi kapteenia kaatuu lasiin kuparisen oranssisena nesteenä muodostaen vaalean ja kestävän vaahdon. Tuoksusta pistää ensimmäisenä esiin eksoottinen hedelmäisyys ja aromaattinen humalointi. Ainakin greippi ja veriappelsiini tulevat mieleen hedelmistä. Alta pilkistää karamellinen maltaisuus ja Sellainen on tuoksusta vastaava kapteeni. Mausta vastaava kapteeni taasen on katkeran, mutta kuitenkin hillityn humaloitu (tai humalassa?). Greippinen hedelmäisyys melkein muistuttaa saman panimon perusipaa, joka onkin tyylinsä parhaimmistoa varsinkin tuoreena. Alta pilkistää taas karamellisuutta. Ei ollenkaan ällömakea tuplaipa. Kapteenien ulkonäköä en viitsi tässä sen kummemmin kehuskella, mutta suussa he tuntuvat varsin runsailta ja jollottelevat merimieslaulujaan varsin iloisesti. Varsin onnistunut tuplaipa, joka ei kuitenkaan mitenkään erityisesti erotu massasta.

Hazy red/orange colour with a thin white head. Quite a bit of sediment- maybe I was too cavalier when pouring... Aroma of toffee, caramel, malt, some hops, alcohol. Taste is sweet with a long duration. Thick oily texture, light carbonation. Ok.

thearmi (31) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 21, 2013
A rather mild double IPA with a smooth and mildly bitter taste and a nice, bitter finish. It has a full body as the finnish stays long in your mouth. A really enjoyable beer for a night.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Hazy yellow-amber beer with a thinnish white head. Hoppy nose with notes of citrus, pollen, resins, sugary canned fruits, fruitcake and berryish yeast. Malty and slightly sweet/bready flavor with balanced caramel sweetness. Blanced bitterness. In the finish it tasty, dryish maltiness, berryish English yeast character together with juicy and slightly spicy and piney hop bitterness. It also has slightly mineral, almost salty aftertaste. Medium to full body, smooth and very drinkable texture. Well balanced DIPA with great drinkability.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 6, 2013
Amber/caramel pour with a frothy off-white head. Lots of flecks of sediment bouncing around the glass. Toffee malts, grapefruit, tangerine peel, pine, passion fruit. Good carbonation starting sweet finishing with strong hoppy bitterness. Delicious.

S_Side_Smitty (744) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a hazy light brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is a nice blend of tropical fruits and malts (there’s some caramel in there somewhere, too). Taste is sweet, creamy malts (almost like milk chocolate) up front and gradually mellowing for an easy finish. The hops are very mild in this one. Different, but very, very good.
