Tap at Hadanka, Helsinki. Pours dark brown with a medium sized head. Aroma is heavily malty with a solid element of rye in it - could not guess that this is an IPA from the aroma. Taste is very roasty and only light bitter, bready and ryeish flavours feature. Hoppiness rises towards the dry finish but is still fairly light. Palate is light to medium bodied, slick. Overall there was simply too much rye and too little bitterness for me. VastActiv (7749) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2013

(Keg at Kitty’s, 20131019) The beer poured mahogany coloured and quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, bread, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A decent but too sweet brew. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013

Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours dark reddish brown with an off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with clear rye notes. Bitter flavour with pine-like resiny tone and some sweet malt. A decent beer, but might have profited from a bit more aroma hops.
