Can at Craft Beer Base. Nice C hop aroma, very piney. dark reddish brown. Thin,watery body, light malts, citrus, pine, and grass hops. Decent, but thin and not great. Not really my thing. 7stern (659) - Bromma, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at Sorbon, Bromma. Amber with a lasting thick head. Pine dominates the aroma. A real hop juice, grapefruit, pine, mango and other fruits. Not much malt though. Rather bitter at the end. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2012
12 ounce can pour. Liht orange color with a white head. Pine and citrus. Nice full flavored easy drinking iPa. MadDogMD (215) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Poured into pint glass. Light orange color, good lacing. Aromas of pine, citrus fruits. Flavor mostly follows the nose, adding a hint of caramel malt. Very enjoyable, easy-drinking IPA. Hermod (8347) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2012
355ml can @Ahven, Helsinki. Poured hazy orange with a lacing white head. Very fruity hoppy aroma, intense, grapefruit. Flavor has pine, grapefruit and some caramel notes. Very bitter, mouthdrying. Solid IPA.

Rock solid, clean, juicy IPA. Clean malt, pine, citurs on the nose. Pine needles and citrus rind held together by a medium full body. Clean, dry finish. Lots of aftertaste. Excellent. Wonderful lacing too. NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2012
Kopparfärgad öl med lätt vitt skum. Gräs, maltsötma och en aning tallbarr i doften. Inget av den populära fruktiga, citrushummelsorterna som man är van vid från jänkarna. Gör detta till en lite annorlunda IPA.

From a can to a duvel tulip. Pours an amber orange with a light tan/off white 2 finger head that shrinks to a pinkey and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is strong pine. There’s something sweet there too. Taste is very bitter. Pine resin, grapefruit, and sweet caramel. Thin mouthfeel but the bitterness hangs on the back of the mouth. Not too bad and pretty sessionable. jookos (7041) - FINLAND - MAY 23, 2012
12oz can @kampela. Amber, white frothy head. Very woodsly piney, hop coney, aroma with a strong citrus backing. Quite bitter, dry. Really an alpha lover’s beer, the aroma is so intense and the bitterness just scorches your gums. After the initial hop overdose: warm, biscuity malts. A nice drink. Typical US over the top though, so might not please everyone. The finish is like i’ve been brushing my teeth with hop pellets.brokephibroke (315) - Mead, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2012

Can. Very floral aroma, can smell i5 across the room! Piney hops, sweet backbone and a nice bitter linger. If you can find it, buy it and enjoy!
