Beertobealive (299) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2013
Good surprise after mitigated tests from the brewery. This beer is the link between IPA and a blond Belgian style. Perfect with mimolette.

Hazy golden body, white head. Aroma is very hoppy, sweet light caramel, some mandarin and bit grassy. Flavour has alcohol and high bitterness. Lots of cookies. Very sharp and strong taste. Quite nice, put hard to categorise. Why would I need to do that?
