Bottled. Rather heavy on the hops with an unusual and interesting fruitiness.Quite comlex, intersting and all round nice beer, oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orangeish colour with white mediumsized head. Hops, fruit and honey in aroma. Mildly malty flavour with flowerish hops dominating. Nice hoppiness makes this a good one. Good beer to have with friends while being social at a pub. Nothing you would drink lots of though... sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2005

(Bottled) Hazy, pale golden color with a large, white and lacy head. Lemony-flowery-hoppy, slightly acidic and dryish aroma. Dry-lemony-hay-hoppy, mildly acidic flavor with smoky-ashy hints, and a dry, lemony-bitter finish. Slightly harsh in its dry hoppiness, but on the other hand, you can almost taste the raw hop pellets. Light to medium-bodied, dry palate with smooth carbonation. Definitely more character than in the cask version I’ve had earlier. Still a bit too raw and unrefined to be enjoyable - needs more malt.

Door, Helsinki, rated Oct 10, 2005, was 4-3-4-3-8=2.2) Paleish, hazy golden color with a small head. Mild, british-hoppy aroma (can’t recall the hop type). Acidic, mildly malty flavor with sourish vegetable hints. Some crisp hoppiness is left, though. Light to medium-bodied palate with low carbonation. A very modest real ale, most probably not at its best. Quite a disappointment.
Bottled (does not look bottle conditioned)leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
A bit hazy golden color, white head. Full aroma of honey, pine wood, hops and caramel. Malty, a bit hard and watery mouthfeel. Mild flowery hoppy. Good session beer but nothing more.
Bottle. Light gold with a small white head. Aromas are toffee with lots of pine and spices with hints of lemon. Flavours are equally hoppy with perhaps a touch more sweetness. Pine is still prevalent as is pepper. Dry and bitter on the finish. Very nice.

Poured from the bottle (self titled WOPPA), a very clear straw yellow with a medium frothy head. Aroma very hoppy and citrussy. Bitter hops come through on the palate, with citrus again in the flavour. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2005

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 In my experience there’s a huge difference between the cask version and the bottle conditioned version of this beer. The grades are for the cask version. [Cask] A dark yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, but also with notes of yeast. The flavor is again very hoppy, but also with notes of oranges, grass, and oil, leading to a dry hoppy end. [Bottle Conditioned] A hazy yellow beer with a beutiful off-white head. The aroma is very sharp with grassy and hoppy notes. The flavor is very hoppy with a dry finish. A boring flavor combined with a thin body.
