4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice big imperial IPA. Sweeter than expected at first with some spicey and herb-like tones.
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2017 Guest tap at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours hazy amber with a little white head. The aroma features sweet maltiness and piney hoppiness; very hoppy, but displays also maltiness. Taste starts light to medium sweet but is on the whole predominantly bitter; very fresh and crisp hoppy bite. Pine, resin and caramel with a touch fruitiness appear. The palate is medium to full bodied, average in carbonation. Very good. FatPhil (16647) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 7, 2017

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2017 Draught @ William K Kurvi. Pours dark orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of caramely malts, pine, citrus, grass and herbal notes. Taste is sweetish, caramely malty and grassy with some fruits, pine, citrus and resin. Finish is sweet, malty and caramely with some pine, resin, fruits and citrus. Sweet and caramely malty DIPA, doesn’t feel very fresh. JorgeLee (2167) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Slightly hazy a ber, thick white foam. The hop cone is an unusual gimmick. Quite a big IPA, very hoppy in the sense of grassy, oily texture, dank, rather than citrus or pine or whatever. Long bitter finish. I quite liked it, even if it didn’t display huge nuances of flavour. Drake (14036) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2016
