3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle into snifter glass, cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma of funky floral/fruity hops and slight pine note too. Taste is much more welcoming, very tropical fruit leaning (mango, pineapple) and some honey. Medium body, low carbonation, soft, cream, slick with smooth hoppy finish. I’ll admit the aroma was somewhat offputting with the funk but this IIPA more then makes up for it in taste, palate and finish. Great stuff.
Big Hops. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, floral hops, resin, mango and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, resin, mango, grass and pine. Very nice imperial IPA. rosenbergh (11661) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2017

Hazy, marmalade color, with white head. Aroma is spicy, with notes of melon rind, alcohol, and fermented pineapple. Taste is booze, biscuit, and a bit of bitter pith. Not the best presentation from these hops.

Backlog. Hazy golden with white head. Grapefruit, dough, grass and onion in both aroma and taste. A bit biscuity. Probably better fresh. mjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2017

Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours hazy golden with a medium-sized, well lasting head. The aroma is richly hoppy. Citrusy and tropical fruitiness flourish; grapefruit, mango, orange. Taste is heavily bitter; no initial or later malt sweetness, this is pretty much just about the hops. The tropical aspect is fairly prominent. Long slide toward a grapefruit-flavoured, dryish finish. The palate is medium to full bodied and very smooth. Solid DIPA. anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2017

Flaska. Disig orange med ett gulvitt skum. Dofter av tropisk frukt, blomster och karamell. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, apelsinskal, mango, gräs och tall. Oljig munkänsla. jinroh (2006) - ESTONIA - JUN 28, 2017
Pours light golden, not so much foam there. Nose is peachy, some tropical fruits, nice hops. Tastes also fruity, biscuity malt base. In general light feel to it but full of hops. Incredible how light one 9% beer can actually taste!
