Bottle at Pub Winston. Dark amber color, small white head, lace. Strong fruity hoppyness in the nose. Even overriped banana. Medium-bodied. Overriped sweet flavor. Late bitterness. A bit gimmicky with hop flower. Quite sweet dipa.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy copper colour with a scant head and the promised hop cone. Big hop aroma with a sweet malt background. Similar for the taste, a bit sweet and sticky, I suspect this bottle may be past its best as is quite flat.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BB 31/10/2016 - importers sticker, at Kaisla, 20160108) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had tangerine, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were tangerines, fruitiness, resin, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A bit unpleasant hoppy pale ale. Hoppiness lacked balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Poured an orange amber color with a solid frothy head like water over a Wisconsin River dam. Smells like hops,hops, & hops. Citrusy grapefruit/lime. Has a medium/full mouth feel and I think I detect an ever so slight malt presense at the finish.The hop cone in bottle is kinda cool and I like this beer

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent nose and pretty enough, this potentially potent beer hidez its alcohol well. Structurally its a bit flacid but its not bad and that hop cone gimick is hard to resist for any hophead.

Rated ti 22.12.2015.
bottle. Amber clear. Boozy caramelly bit barleywiney nose. Hoppy citrus, some grapefruits. Nuts. Full med bodied. Sweetness, lots of bitters for balance tho, drinks quite well. Bitter piney overcooked caramels, some yeasty dirt dough. A bit,messy, but flavourful, iipa bordering on a barley wine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. BBE 31.10.2016.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Intense hops on the nose as expected, resin and lots of pine, sweet tropical fruits too. Caramel malt flavor, mango, orange and pine, resinous and a bit oily hops. Full-bodied, bitter and oily palate. Intense and tasty, maybe a bit too sweet. Good nonetheless.
