Ozzak (43) - BERGEN, - AUG 4, 2012
330 ml bottle at home. Clear orange in the glass with dense, off white head that settles quickly. Aroma is heavy with various citrus notes: grapefruit, tangerine and (dried) orange. Maybe some tropical sweetness as well, along with dried grass. The aroma is nice at first, but gets even better and more appealing with warming up in the glass. Nice and complex. Taste is a citrusy bitter, with some fruity sweetness to balance. Good IPA.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein orangegoldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv malzig, fruchtig herb. Geschmack sehr mild fruchtig bitter nach exotischen Früchten.

I had never heard of or tasted this HBC hops and I have never seen it again after this beer. That’s a shame cause it work very well in this single hop issue of Brewdog.

Bottle from Bierzwerg. Batch 071!
Pours amber colored with creamy off-white head. Smells slight fruity, with some peaches and pine woods. Starts very fruity and floral, with peach, orange and apricot. Slight pine woods and caramel in the background. Middle part has sweet fruits, paired with some resin and caramel. Goes into a hoppy-fruity finish with lots of orange, grapefruit and apricot. Very interesting hop!
