Very hop forward nose, lots of pine and spice. Cloudy amber colour. Taste is strong hops, but quite different than the nose suggested. Sweet malt has fruit and citrus followed by more resin hops. Resin remains in the finish. Quite nice drinkable beer.

Spruce! 25.01.2014. 0,33l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Dark orange colour with white head. Aroma dominated by strong hoppy flavours. Spruce and juniperus. Its also kind of oily in the mouth and its dry. Ok body with notes of malt hidden behind the spruce! Fresh and hoppy beer.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Deep orange body, pillowy off white head. Very hoppy aroma of sweet over-ripe fruits. Fruity hoppy palate with lightly sweet malts. Surprisingly low bitterness. An unusual amber that is very hoppy, less caramel-y, and without much bitterness-- it worked for me.

Botella de 33 cl en Cimeria. Marzo de 2013. Muy buena cerveza que con un bajo volumen alcohólico presenta gran sabor, sobre todo bastante seco con algo de fruta al principio y retrogusto seco amargo resinoso bastante bueno. Para repetir sin duda.

Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mildly hazy amber color. Thin white head. Couple bits and ropes of lace. Pretty solid appearance. Good tropical fruity hop flavor, some caramel malt, light toastiness. Light bitterness, moderate sweet. Medium body, smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Solid, easy drinking amber ale. Hoppy, without being too bitter.

Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt, hops and citrus with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.
