COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We utilize two types of American hops in such a way that we put the flavor of these hops center stage and let their bitterness fade into the background. The hop-forward character of this Pale Ale shines through in the unique, tropical fruit flavor of two American hop varieties. Enjoy this offering with a fresh approach to how a Pale Ale expresses its inner hoppiness.

Dunkel gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av malt, frukt og humle. Smak av furu, sitrus og karamell. Bittersøt avslutning.

nilsas (1506) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Duft av citrus og litt honning, ikke mye duft egentlig. Dunkel gulbrun farge. Tynt lag hvitt skum, heng langs kant. Frisk smak av citrus, dog noe vassen ettersmak.

ClubGonzo (4115) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
Can. Pours a clear orange body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, pale malts, toffee, grass, hints of red fruits and berries. Taste is caramel, syrup, nuts, grass, pine, raisin and hints of resin. Light body, medium carbonation. Obviously past its prime, but probably good when fresh.

Embarrassingly terrible beer. Flat head. The hops are nonexistent. Piney notes but horribly executed. The wash down is bitter and cloying. Skip it.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Pretty hoppy for a pale, bordering on iPa style wise. Caramel and biscuity malts in the background behind ample citrus and piney hops. Fairly bitter finish. Above average apa. 2nd time old and boring. Date your bleeping cans."

Boks 355ml anskaffet av djoeye og delt med ham og Rune på pauserommet 27 Aug 14. Gylden aprikosfarget. Uklar. Lavt skum. God aroma av fersken & jordbær. Smaken fortsetter med innslag av mer frukt - dominert av fersken. Direkte godt boksøl.

Rune (8200) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
355ml can kindly shared by djoeye. A patchy layer on top of a cloudy apricot coloured body. Brown malts and dried fruity nose. Nice fruit hoppy taste with caramel malts beneath. Bittersweet citrus peels towards the finish. Well rounded and well bodied. Medium bodied. Tasty with fine session qualities (Session with Finn and djoeye at Bokhuset, Tromsø 10.09.2014)

djoeye (1572) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2014
Slightly stripy light amber hazy body. Warm off white head. The whole pine forest to the nose, apricot, fruits, very fresh fruity inviting scents. Taste; solid pine forest, resin, oil, butter, nuts, hops, bitter bread-juice, lemon, lots of taste aspects. Good body. Finish; roasted malts, resin, citrus peel, good finish. Overall too small can for the arctic trio. Moreish stuff. [355ml can 5.7%abv° BB3KBE-693 T@Session w Finn&Rune]

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Serving: Can. It pours a light amber color. The nose has bits of earthy hops, some cracker, a little caramel malt, and slight florals as it starts to warm. Fairly even balance between hops and malt in this brew, but not as much hoppiness as I was hoping. Flavor follows the nose. Medium finish.
