COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

Appearance: Pale and golden - but not too pale as to look like lager.
Nose: Lemony citrus hops with a hint of grapefruit and spicy, peppery goldings.
Palate: Full on hops – styrian goldings to the fore, goldings giving a balanced middle and finally the rich malty fullness of maris otter as a backbone. The finish is refreshing with hops that become dryer if the cask lasts long enough!
Summary: A modern IPA, not overly bitter but still nicely ‘hoppy’ and at 4.8%, just about a session IPA for a sensible night’s drinking. The hop profile is nothing short of stunning.

Psytron (2710) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2018
Smell of hops. Hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of malt, some hops, a bit of grass. Mostly a pale ale if you ask me, not IPA or APA. Mildly bitter. Half flat carbon. Quite unimpressive.

Turboninja (1017) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2018
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Nicely combines malty and fruity characters with average hops. Averagely balanced. Medium taste spectrum. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, bit simple but malty base product. 6 3 7 3 14

Tap at Oluthuone Leskinen, Oulu. Color is slightly cloudy orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, lemon, some citrus, hops and malts. Pretty useless and boring.

Piepenhenrich (1376) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2017
Handpulled in the Ferry Inn, Stromness, Orkney, Scotland. Pours golden with creamy head. Has a nice balance of light malty fruity and hoppy flavors. Hops is not that much in focus like I would expect from an IPA. It's more like a reasonably hoppy, easy to drink ale. Good, though.

Holmen2 (4487) - NORWAY - SEP 16, 2017
From bottle at OSB påslutning at TO's 16.09.17. Clear orange golden. Off-white head. Aroma of fruits and pale malt. Similar taste, with evident hops and bitterness. More like a golden ale than an IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 Cask @ Ferry Inn, Stromness. Kecsesen könnyed IPA a Swannay szortimentből...

Derbeth (1213) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle. Golden colour, cloudy, minimal head. Aroma is mostly herbal hops, also some pine and citrus - definitely an English, not American character. Medium bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Good.
