3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint bottle. A soapy white head that leaves cool lacing. I rolled the bottle and dislodged a good amount of yeast. The result was a cloudy golden brown beer. A really tart bitter citrus beginning. So much tropical fruit. Pineapples almost drip. Peaches sneak in, too. This European version kicked the butt of a lot of American versions.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Olympen in Oslo. Raw citra / mosaic orange and pine resin and onion and garlic and such... urinal cake bathroom cleaning supplies. The worst part the is apparent fire-y alcohol notes on a sub-5 beer so... Higher alcohols present? This is just sloppy. This is what the PNW brewers are doing with session IPA thing and it’s an absolute mess in the nose like most of their examples. Medium light body, raw grain and raw hop oils, crude bitterness, fried breading malt (french fries and chicken wings).
