Nice aroma of piney hop - not super strong, just nice. Hazy amber color with a white head that laced a bit on its rapid departure. Starts with pine. Mouthfeel a bit thin. A little malt pops up, and then the piney hop returns to finish. It’s nice. More like an IPA than the typical amber. Could drink this regularly.

On Tap at Flyers. Deep amber beer with a thick off-white head. Sweet citrusy hop aroma, bready malt aroma as well. Flavour is quite sweet, fruity hops and fruity yeastiness as well. Hops are citrusy and slightly tropical with a light resiny note. Tasty brew.

355ml bottle carried all the way from Seattle to Tromsø – courtesy of Elisabeth and Stefan. Bottle conditioned beer, ABV is supposed to be about 6.5%. Cloudy, dark amber content topped by an off-white, low level head. Nice sweet, hoppy aroma with notes of biscuits. Hoppy fruits in flavour, developing in the direction of brittle caramel notes. Bitter finish. Crispy in the mouth. Fairly standard amber [Sampled at a beer session in Tromsø 29.01.2009].
