2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours an orange amber with a thin white head. Aroma is piney with a bit of citrus hops. Taste is bitter with a bit of sweetness coming from the malt, a bit of spruce and grapefruit. Nice carbonation, but the taste is a bit underbalanced for me.
Cloudy amber beer with a thin off white head that leaves a little lace. Nose of mandarin orange, pine, and dough. Flavor is actually mild for an IPA with some citrus, resin, and apple cider vinegar over a lightly sweet caramel malt base. The hop flavor subsides fairly rapidly though with not a whole lot of finish. Decent, not great. adamnase (681) - Kronoby, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2017
Draught @Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Amber coloured with a thin, small white head. Nice fruity, hoppy, pineapples. Flavor has sweetness, fruits, grape. Nice and fresh. beer_rookie (566) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Pours an orange color. Pretty cloudy. About one finger frothy white head with big bubbles. Decent retention, odd lacing. The clumpy bubbles cling to the glass. Cool!Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Aroma is caramel. Roasted malts. Very earthy and woodsy. It’s almost like a musk scent. Some citrus zest.
Taste follows the nose. Woodsy, orange zest. Malty, yet leans bitter. A little resin on the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Hops aren’t so much bittering, more so earthy than anything. Does not finish very clean. A little gritty.
Overall, it’s not bad. A little different than your usual IPA, because it is so earthy. The weird lacing last all the way to the finish. I want to love it, but I don’t. It’s a little odd, maybe even experimental. I’d probably recommend it because it is so different. However, I won’t buy it again. The best part about it is the lacing. Seriously, that was cool! Was that unintentional?
Backlog entry: Flight at the brewery. A nice selection, several IPAs. Good all-around. True to style. Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Orange body, white head. Aroma has caramel, citrus fruits, grapefruit. Surprisingly malty taste. Crisp and ok. But nothing more.

Nice and beautiful,amber orange beer with a long lasting cloudy head. Mild aroma has some notes of caramel and wood and maybe a bit herbs. Taste is light bitter. Some grapefruit and citrus, little wood and caramel. Not very fresh or exotic fruity. Little spices on tongue. glennmastrange (2869) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted, caramel and bread for the malt, light to moderate cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with raisin and dried fig in the background. Head is average size, starting fizzy/frothy turning creamy, off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy dark amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation and a dry finish. Not a bad beer, but too malt dominant for my tastes in an IPA. BitchPls (808) - FINLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Light brown beer with a beige foam. Quite nice creamy and fruity aroma. Round and soft bitterness. Some caramel and bread in the flavor. Not a lot of grape fruit or grassy bitterness. Love the mouth feel though. Overall a pleasant experience. hayduke (5205) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Pours a clear orange color with a white head. Good lacing. Nose of fruit and citrus. Medium body. Flavor is light fruit and floral.citrus hops. Bitter finish. Good. Heather_B (256) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Malt bomb. This smells like I’m going to hate it. The malt tastes like old moly leather shoes. Not good. Pour is a cloudy golden. Ugh. Why did I drink such bad beers early in 2014?
