330ml can from The Beerhive. Big frothy white head goes down quickly and lasts well, great lacing. Slightly hazy golden amber body. Brilliant nose of pine and tropical fruit. Flavour is tropical, citrus, gentle bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy with light carbonation. Beautifully balanced, easy to drink, this is tremendous.

BarryKonrad (98) - NORWAY - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Dombås, Norway. Pours golden hazy, with a small diminishing white head. Nice aroma of pine and dark, unnamed tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is medium. Flavour of sweet malts and pine at first, hoppy and dry bitterness in the finish. All over a nice experience.

LarsEngen (363) - Sandvika, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2014
33 cl bottle from vinmonopolet Asker. Pours hazy golden with a huge light brown creamy head that just stays there. Strong hoppy aroma with pine, grapefruit and some tropical notes. Flavour is pine but suprisingly light with a dry tropical bitterness that comes after 15 secounds. Medium bitterness, medium carbonation, light to medium body. An easy to drink apa

djoeye (1508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2014
Light tan superfoam, different fields inside the mug, hazy deep amber-apricot body. Aroma; citrus, lime, lemon, pine, resin, roasted malts, green grass, hints from old milk, candies and sugar cubes, overwhelmingly inviting aroma. Taste; powerful hops, citrus peels, some peaches, bitter, tanning, leather, roasted malts, ash, wood, soy sauce, dark malted candies. Good body, soft carbonation, oh wonderfully. Finishes with resin, wood oil, owl spit, bittersweet dark candies, urine mist, and greetings from hops -- even in the burp! What a taste bomb! I think this may go along with lots of dishes. [33cl brown btl, 5.4%abv, BB:oct2014, birthday gift from my workmate Lina]

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
330 ml bottle. Unclear orange body with an off-white head. OK fruity aroma with pale malt and moderate caramel. Flavor is sweet malt, refreshing citric fruit and decent bitterness. Medium, but balanced body with a moderate aftertaste, hint of metal. Totally OK APA, still to straight forward to really impress.

HaakonBjerkeli (29) - NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014

AndrewC (323) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Thanks to Harrisoni for this. This is really nice. Seriously, this is really nice. Smells like a DIPA (whatever that is). Has that Über hop resin bite that isn’t so overpowering that it’s unpleasant. Highly drinkable.
