"Bound to satisfy".
Current description: Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!
Previous description: Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added.

gunnar (8002) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2013
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear straw coloured with no head at al. Aroma of light struck hops, far from delicious. Taste is mild with a strange artificial bitterness.

Holmen1 (4892) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2013
Kveldens første på mandag i annen 25.feb-12: ABV på 4.4%, og som bitterhumle er brukt First Gold. Aromahumler er EKG og Cascade. Klar gylden med hvitt skum. Lite aroma og daff ettersmak. Medium munnfylde. En ok og ganske frisk golden ale, hvis du liker stilen (noe Egil ikke gjør - han synes det er pingleøl).

vipinvelp (3886) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2013
Clear light orange, darker yellow with pure white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is quite unique, hoppy, some yeast. Taste is also unique, bitter but in a different way, have to get used to this beer. Dry aftertaste. (Moscow 201302)

Bright clear gold - amber beer, tiny white head. Crisp palate. Fresh lagerish malt. Reasonable hops - trace of orange. Quite a carbonated sting in the finish. Fairly malty aftertaste. Mild bitter linger. Not bad, pretty drinkable.

Beerheart65 (1417) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2012
Light amber with one finger head. Hoppy aroma has citrus mixed with exotic fruits, bit caramel malting. Nicely round bit oily feel, medium body, quite soft carbonation but not flat, bitterness balances sweetness, finish is bitter and fruity, taste has more evident malting that is nuanced also nicely: nuts, bread, caramel. Bit butter here also and slight spicyness. Nice and balanced, good flavors.
