Flaska från @Peter_L. Grumlig bärnstensfärgad vätska med stort vitt skum. Humleexplosion med överhängande blommiga toner. Kraftig smak av humle med stor pepprighet. Känner inte av alkoholen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average to huge, creamy, fairly lasting, moderatel lacing, off-white head. Resinous, piney, concentrated, flipping over hoppy aroma, some citrus. Taste is immensely bitter hoppy, pine, resin, caramel malty backbone. Aggressive, concentrated bitterness - too much for a more differentiated development of flavours. Slightly overdone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Old Capitol Brew Works. Dark orange and cloudy appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of floral notes, herbal hops, pine, citrus zest and tropical fruits. Similar flavor, strong, bitter, mostly clean and hoppy with a touch of alcohol and soap. Minimal malt sweetness. Medium to full body. Good for sippin.

bottle - Pours a copper color with an assertive citrus hop aroma. The flavor is of course high on the bitterness. It’s full bodied with notes of citrus and a long, bitter finish. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 2 weeks inside best-before date. Smells really good. Rich tropical notes I find it hard to tease apart. Sweet soft fruits, strawberry, pineapple, guava(?), more. Pale golden orange appearance, not hazy as such but with fine particles suspended. Smallish off-white head dissipated quickly. Very little lacing. Several layers of malty light caramel sweetness, followed by moderate bitterness and some more fruit cocktail from the hops, plus some grassiness. Would love to try this super-fresh; from this bottle I want more bitterness. Pretty full-bodied without being too chewy, lowish carb, decent length of bitter finish but the grassiness keeps on - that green bullet sure is green!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excellent citrus aroma including tropical mango and tangerine. Hazy orange with a clingy foam head. Smooth body and balanced malts make this a nice drinker. Finish leaves me wanting another.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy, medium to pale amber body with a white, long-lived head that laces the glass well. Very strong aroma, quite sweet and definitely hop-driven. Pure hop pellets and pine, grassy notes in the back along with overripe fruity notes, candy like stuff and even a whiff of bubble gum. The malt brings gentle caramel notes, and actually vague hints of chocolate(!). An entertaining aroma! The flavours are strong and pleasant, huge amounts of pine and fruits, but I don’t find the aroma that tropical. Also herbs, anise, grass and alcohol. The taste is moderate sweet and the long-lasting finish is heavy bitter. Close to full body, the texture is oily but with a moderate dry finish, soft carbonation. Solid stuff.
[35.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 weeks before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
