The beer is mistakenly named, the IPA stands for Iisalmi Pale Ale, not Indian PA, and a certain thinness of the taste is tied to this. When fresh, the beer is balanced and bright, once aged a bit, the malts come to the fore too much.

The colour is yellow; the liquid got some chill haze. The three finger head is white, uneven and compact and it sinks very slowly leaving thick lacing.

The smell is very light. Some diffuse citric notes, some bitter herbs.

The taste is light and somewhat roasted and bread-like. Ripe fruits and berries, some sandal/cedar wood. Light body. The aftertaste got notes of beef stock, overripe fruits, paper and dough. Low bitterness. The finish is a bit sweeter with notes of wheat dough.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles short-lived. The liquid is light and somewhat smooth.

Lots of off-flavours and signs of age. Not very good.
