COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Det frekke ekornet Ratatosk sprang opp og ned i treet Yggdrasil med fornærmingar mellom ormen ved røtene og ørna i toppen. Når ein vanleg dose humle ikkje er heilt nok, har vi dette frekke ølet å tilby: solid bitterheit som balanserar med lett fyldig maltsødme og kraftig humlearoma og smak.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, caramel, and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast, caramel, alcohol, hops, and lemons, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yngwie. Pours a cloudy amber with loads of tiny impurities and an off-white head. Very delicious hop accents of tropical fruits. Solid body, heavy fruitiness with an excessive residual sweetness. And underneath the hops lurk all the way through leaving a bitter finish. 261111

Bottle in our quirky Oslo Hotel. Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Light crisp palate. Very light for it’s abv. Smooth hops but with presence. Sweet grass and pine. Just a trace of tropical fruits. Minerals and creamy malt. Semi dry finish with very mild bitter linger. In a world of big heavy DIPAs this one stands out for it’s lightness, also for hiding the abv. Dangerously drinkable.

saxo (13796) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle @ Early Winter Gathering season 11/12, Ulfborg. Pours cloudy orange with a small lasting white head. Grapefruit, peach and caramel in the nose. Too much sweet malts to be really good.. Full bodied. Bordering to become a B.W. Warmth . .

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 9.0%. Caramelly aroma. The flavour is grainy and teaish, but also with a rough graininess and alcohol note. Cloudy amber colour, small white head. Also quite roasted, but roughly so again.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle, #237. It pours a nice, dense, two-finger off-white head on top of an unclear, dark amber body with lots of micro particles suspended. It’s peachy and lighlty piney and grassy on the nose, malty sweetness and a touch of caramel in the back. It’s full-bodied, smooth and lightly warming on the palate, with a solid bitterness to deal with the malty sweetness. Peaches, pine cones and a grassy touch as well. Overall, a pleasant brew, maybe 3.7 is a bit high. Glad I ordered a few more. 111126

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 500ml Arkadia. Hazy deep amber color, small off-white head. Strong sweet hop-malty aroma. Piney-syrapy. Full-bodied. Sweet, malty, piney-resiny. Alcoholic finish. Too sweet DIPA for my liking, but not a disaster of course. Lacks also depth of its "brother", Nogne #100.
