Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Murky orange to brown. Medium amount of white head. Fruit, citrus, pineapple, pine nose. Bitter. Malt, hay, mud, some pineapple flavour. Not pleasant at all. Medium body. Low carbonation. Bad bottle?

Can from Cornelius. Pours cloudy, yellowish, big white foamy head. Loads of grapefruit on the nose, light resin and citrus. Tropical fruit, medium body, lovely balanced bitter finish. Tasty.

Wischylini (120) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark yellow, with a small white head that fades somewhat fast. The aromas are light and fruity, with peach, pineapple and citrus fruits being the most prominent; some lightly toasted grains are noticeable as well. The taste is fairly sweet, and moderately bitter. The mouthfeel is slightly thick, and the carbonation is average.

IPAgutten79 (444) - Skui, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Gylden farge med medium høyde på skummet. Tiltalende aroma av tropisk frukt, spesielt ananas. Ellers furu og noe malt på nesen. I munnen er den ganske fyldig og fylt med fruktige smaker. Mye furu. Litt søt først, før humla tar over og gir en behagelig bitterhet. Spesielt aromaen på denne er finfin.

From a bottle. Pours a very cloudy yellow with lots of sediment, lasting white head, fruity sharpness with a malt smoothness. Give it a go.

AshtonMcCobb (2308) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2014
33cl bottle from Cork and Cask. Appearance - cloudy orange with a nice lacy head. Nose - initially some lavender then dried apricots. Taste - delicious orange and still some of that lavender or pine note with a grapefruit pith on the finish. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long elegant finish. Overall - a really tasty beer. Best I’ve had from this brewer.

330ml bottle - thick white foamy head, fruity beautiful aromas mixed wit a tropical flavour. Hoppy but not too bitter and fruity but not to sweet. Exceptional!
