330ml bottle from Ales By Mail. Muddy amber brown, reasonable head. Tar resin hop aroma. Apricot, wood, biscuit resin hop flavour. Sharp with sweet hoppy aftertaste. Quite a complex IPA. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2013
330 ml bottle. Bottled 08/10/13. BB 08/02/14. 6.9%. From alesbymail.co.uk.olio (10169) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Amber golden colour with a small frothy white head.
Sweaty socks, pine and fruity hops, mild bitterness and rye malt in the aroma.
The flavour is super dry... there’s dry grainy malt, resiny hops, moderate bitterness and... the yeast brings on the another world... it smooths the aroma and the flavour but also turns it more unimaginable. Tasty it is.

Pours hazy orange color with a large white head. Aroma is florally hoppy and somewhat sweetish with fruits, some orange zest, pine needles and goose berry bush makes the aroma crispier. Flavor of orange, goose berries, caramel malts and some grapes. Fruity and crisp but something is lacking.
Bottle, October 2nd bottling date - thanks Ben! Drank on 11/26. Pours hazy amber with a medium tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is dank, pine, leaves, citrus, but a bit stale. Flavor doesnt live up to the aroma, mostly just light sweet, medium bitter, piney. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, tastes old despite the bottling date.
