A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

500ml bottle. Pours very cloudy amber with a small head that reduces quickly. Good hoppy aroma. Some mild tropical fruit flavours quickly buried under mountains of bitter hops and intense grapefruit. An exceptionally long bitter finish. Refreshing and satisfying. Love it.

Bottle from Gulating Lørenskog enjoyed at home
Golden hazy, massive white head. Smell of citrus, grapefruti, pine, sap and light malts. Moderate sweet, tropical fruits and citrus flavors, resins, hints of soap, distinct hop presence. Heavy bitter, resin tail. Very nice stuff

Wolfbass (1053) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 7, 2016
Torno dopo una cena da amici calabresi, che mi avevano dato di tutto; entro in casa apro il frigo e trovo questa. Devo bere per digerire, e in effetti la top fa bene la sua missione in questo caso, però non mi ha convinto del tutto...

colui72 (488) - HONG KONG - DEC 17, 2015
Hazy golden with a large white, nearly solid, head. Nose is grapefruit and hops. Taste is straight bitter, very IPAish for a golden ale. Grapefruit and strong Chinook hops all over the place. Bitter, refreshing and very smooth. Very enjoyable beer.

ChtiBreizh (387) - Rennes, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy golden with an average frothy head. Loads of fruity hops, grassy, light biscuit. Bitter finish. Some mild sweetness and a big body for this abv make it very round. A winner.

Vighals (2416) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Gulbrun noe tåkete med høyt hvitt skum. Lukter syrlige epler. Også syrlig i smak, men noe fruktsødme er der også. Lett medium lang avslutning.
