LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, - MAR 16, 2013
50 cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Batch 574. Pours very hazy yellow to golden with a onefinger creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, pine and some notes of sweet fruits and spices. Crisp bitter mouthfeel that turns into light sweetness and nice fruity flavour. Long hoppy finish. This a great beer to relax in the sun with.

Vielen Dank an Erzengel! Das Bier hat eine trübe goldgelbe Farbe und eine mittelgroße weiße Schaumkrone. Der Geruch ist sehr hopfig, viel Citrusfrüchte, frisch, grasig. Der Geschmack ist aromatisch hopfig bitter, grasig, floral, leichter schlanker Körper, süffig, sehr gut!

Many thanks to Cunningham! More foam than beer in the glass - but not a gushing bottle! Great and extremely intense fresh floral hops in the nose. The beer starts not as intense as the nose is. Great floral piney hops, exotic fruits, but a bit grainy malty body. Fresh, smooth grainy-floral aftertaste with grassy hops and lots of pine. Not much bitterness in the aftertaste, grain, hints of sweetness, round and nice.

ogniskowicz (465) - POLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Niedostatki aromatu (głównie trawiastość) i wyglądu (tryliar paprochów unoszących się w całej szklance - nadrabia niebywałą wręcz pijalnością. Średnio niskie wysycenie, mocna, ale króciutka goryczka i wytrawność robią swoje. Najszybciej wypite przeciętne piwo w życiu.

Barwa ciemnozlota, srednia, drobnopecherzykowa piana, bardzo ladny lacing. Aromat swiezy, tropikalnych owocow. Smak lekki z wyczuwalnymi cytrusami, owocami tropikalnymi, niska ale wyczuwalna goryczka. Bardzo pijalne i sesyjne.

A very hooped beer, and a bit overhooped for my style. The beer is well made, but the hops makes it a bit unbalanced

500ml bottle (Zmogsala2015, Vilnius)
Nice citrussy hop aroma. Slightly watery palate, but the hops are very bitter, and it doesn’t seem weak. Considering the strength, I’d almost say it was trying to be full. Finish has plenty of malty grains. Nice quaffable brew.

tbonde (192) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2015
25 cl from tap@Oslo Bar@approx 7 degrees C. Pours a hazy golden/yellow color with a generous white head with good retention. Clear, fresh citrussy hop aoma. Very well balanced flavour of plenty of American citrus fresh hops and a slightly sweet maltiness. Long lasting aftertaste pleasantly bitter without becoming like biting grapefruitpips. The right carbonation and a slightly creamy palate add to a very favourable impression of this brew.
