Can pour into tulip glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is cloudy dark orange with lots of colored floaties, fair sparkle, finger-width off-white foamy head which fades quickly to a ring, and copious sudsy and leggy lacing. Aroma is strong tropical fruits, light pine, citrus and grapefruit. Mildly astringent. Taste is not as strong as aroma--still tropical fruits but more malt and more resin bitterness than I was expecting. Light alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, soft-to-average carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, aroma is the standout but still a decent mix of flavors. Color is beautiful; floaties are not.

Medium/strong, sweet and bold aroma with slightly overaged mango. Deeper orange color with medium/small, creamy, light beige head and ultra-hazy liquid. Strong, balanced taste with a carnival of sweet, bold fruits like mango and apricot. Huge amount of hops. No malts detected. Organic with narrow taste spectrum and long fruity and hoppy aftertaste. Medium/strong body with medium carbonation. Overall, great and organic fruit bomb but too simple in its class.
Ester-y nose, pours clear amber, minimal head. Moderately carbonated, piney and grassy hops, very bitter. Solid hop-forward IPA, does not taate nearly as alcoholic as it is (9%). mile (3941) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle. Light amber/golden, cloudy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit/citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light - some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness/citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light citrus hoppyness with light alcohol. Decently hopped sweetish IIPA with caramel. Way too sweet for me. Marstonlad (884) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours slightly hazy amber with a medium-sized frothy head. The aroma contains strong piney and citrusy fruitiness – an American outlook for sure – with some grass, not much else apart from the hops. Taste is light sweet initially, later heavily bitter; strong levels of hop flavour and bitterness. Despite intense taste, a smooth palate; very drinkable. Flavours of pine and spruce rush forward and keep the pole position until the finish; solid malt background but not much malt presence in the flavours – perhaps a touch of fudge initially. Hops also bring citrusy fruitiness and a touch of tropical fruits is apparent as well; grapefruit stays comparatively low in the aftertaste. Delightfully rich set of flavours all in all. The palate is medium to full bodied, low in carbonation. Brilliant.

355ml bottle from Alko. BBE Aug 1st 2017. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of herbal hops, resinous notes, pine, caramel, toffee and grass. Taste is resinous, sweet and piney with some grass, citrus, caramely malts and hints of toffee. Finish is crisp, resinous and piney with some herbal hops and grass. Okay, quite resinous old school DIPA. jookos (6761) - FINLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle. Oarnge hazy. Sweet ripe stone fruity, bit marmelady, pines on nose. Full bldied, well bittered, malty, sweet oranges and pines. Finishes surprisingly clean of any sweet ick, like my tongue is scrubbed clean with a pine branch.
