Eructoblaster (4330) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy amber body with a thin white creamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with pineapple and mango hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its robust, very well balanced hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, and some subtle woody notes. Ends with a long, sharp, moderately warming bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

mikkopen (1192) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
500 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, caramel malt and floral hops. The flavour is malty, with grapefruit and mango, and a dryish, herbal, woody hoppy finish. Very tasty.

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Nice floral and citrus nose on this amber brew. Medium tan head and somewhat clody pour. Surprisingly bitter and woody on the tongue, medium body and smooth. Finishes with a touch of cheese, bitters, and oak. Very complex and tasty.

RexTalionis (3782) - FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Pours hazy golden in color with a whitish head. Grapefruit, pine and bark of spruce in aroma. Bitter grapefruit in taste, no sign of any sweetness at first, some wooden notes too. Harsh mouthfeel with some earthy and green herbal notes. As I was looking forward to something near the standard of their #500, this was a disappointment as it felt too sharp and in a way the bitterness didn’t fit here that well. Feels more like a regular, quite woody bitter IPA.

.5l bottle from Alko Pours murky amber with medium to high head. Aroma is grape fruit, hops and soap. Flavor is alcohol, grape fruit (a lot) and oakwood. Dry palate. Swell!

3.8
TET (3177) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
An orange colour, head is medium and blond. Aroma is tropical and grapefruity, mangos, grapefruits and some pine needles. Fresh and tastefull aroma. Taste is fruitfull and tropical, grapefruits, lots of pine needles, medium and soft bitterness. Nicely balanced with caramelly sweetness and hops. Taste is almost dry, great! The aftertaste is wooden and pine. Medium+ bodied, easy and slippery to drink. Balanced and not too sweet DIPA. More fruits in the taste would be great, now more harsh touch.

jookos (6973) - FINLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. Orange copper hazy, frothy. Very strong grapefruit hoppyness with floral perfumy tones. Clean double malty, some sweetness in there as well. Body is full, quite soft, tasteful. Good bitters, some malty sweetness. Caramelized malt. Long finish with a bit of earthy herby hops, the double, over-cooked, malt. Clean and friendly, good quality as always. Reminds me of brewdogs stuff + a bunch of others with just the same flavor profile.

3.9
