Tasty and very friendly drinking well under its 6.5%. Not particularly bitter and has a nice caramel layer underpinning the palate. Really very nice board mouthfeel; miles away from bog standard mod IPA and just so much better for it. 3 6 8 5 15

malibrat (207) - Pula, CROATIA - FEB 4, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Vrlo snažna hmeljno-biljna aroma ! Okus je isti takav , samo šta ja tijelo za moj ukus malo 'tanko'. Fali malo sladne punoće koja će se spojiti sa tim jakim hmeljnim okusom koji dugo ostaje u ustima. Sve u svemu, vrlo dobra IPA , pogotovo za one koje vole jaki hmeljni okus a da im je istodobno i pitka.

MarcoDL (5529) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle. Orange golden pour. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, caramel and pineapple. Taste has bitter grapefruit, soft pineapple, peach, caramel, mild pine and malt. Bit too old I think, but still a nice IPA.

luser2000 (220) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2017
Ennek többet kellett volna tudni. Az első pohár teljesen átlagos, friss, halványan citrusos főzet benyomását keltette. Mivel szerintem a cspatban ennél több van, újra kell majd kostoljam, talán akkor megmutatkozik a való értéke.

3.2
Panzerfaust (877) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 1, 2017
330ml bottle from El Irlandés. Pours bright golden color with a big white head that shows medium retention. Aroma of hops with some fruity and caramelly hints. Strong floral notes with side citrus, zest and lime touches. Taste is mildly bitter with pleasant sweetness. A bit underwhelming for a bottle that costs this much. Interesting as something different, but Pohjala seems to be making alesfor beer raters or tickers instead of great ales for regular drinking.
