COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Perhaps you heard of a worldwide beer-movement that tributes favorite hipster neighbourhoods across the globe. First came Istedgade, Copenhagen then Södermalm, Stockholm followed by Williamsburg, New York and Shoreditch, London accompanied by Trastevere, Rome & last El Raval, Barcelona. If you feel excluded because you’re hip but your city is not, this cutting-edge, ‘hip without borders’ pale ale is an homage to you – the global hipster. Cheers!

AWISLguy (1418) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Can from Breeze Thru. Clear pale orange pour. Perfect concentric lacing. Citrus and pine lead the hoppy aroma with a light spicy tang. Flavor has more of a pine/caramel mix, with some grapefruit. LIght to medium bodied. Finishes more bitter than sweet on the bitter-sweet scale. Decent pale, an easy drinker that would have again, but would not go out of my way for. 13.8

Hermod (3449) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Can from Alko. Amber colored, thick white head. Aroma has sweet oranges, marmelade, caramel, hops. Nice. Flavor has similar things going on, oranges, pine, resin and some caramel. Aggressive bitterness that is growing and growing. Kind of like these hop bombs.

Marduk (2969) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2014
330ml can. Hazy orange color. Medium size, white head, stays. Grainy, fart, apples, jam, marmalade in aroma. Sweet, malty, hop extract? in taste. As it warms up things get nasty. So drink it ice cold! Less pain. Medium bitterness.

Can @ home. Color: clear blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: hops and cereal notes well balanced. Taste: nice malt and hoppy taste with floral notes and good bitterness. Aftertaste: really nice bitterness and caramel notes.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
355 ml can. Pours a cloudy orange golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is fruits, grapefruit, bitterness. Flavor is fruity as hell, orange, mango, passionfruit, pepper. Finish is grapefruit, lime, good bitter punch! Lingering fruits...light to medium body, smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very solid pale ale.

drsandman (392) - New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a hazy pale orange, white head. Aroma is stale hop, bread, grass, earth, musty citrus. Flavor is pretty bitter and earthy. Mediocre

Love the aroma, citrus with some balance of onion maybe? Wonderful head, sticks around for awhile. Straw appearance. Quite bitter without really being hoppy which seems weird. If you want the definition of funk, this is it.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2014
330ml can (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Stinky stanky aroma, ugh, pungent, onion and other savoury aspects. The full APA experience cranked up to brewing-flaws-11. Hazy orange, small head. Yuck, it’s even worse in the mouth but that’s because in close up there’s even more onion in the aroma. Full palate, but there’s a horrible artificial-sweeterner chemical bitterness. Tongue-scrapingly unpleasant. Possibly one of the most unpleasant APAs I’ve ever experienced.

Turboninja (96) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Medium aroma with tropical fruits and hint of malts. Pale golden/yellow with lightly hazy liquid. Small/medium, white head. Medium taste with fruits, pine and lot of hops. Some bitterness. Not so balanced. Medium/narrow taste spectrum and long fruity and hoppy aftertaste. Light/medium palate with medium/high carbonation. Overall like hipster: something fresh but after all a bit lame.
