A very bitter brew!
Golden color, a bitter scent and a bitter taste.
Hantverksbryggeriet has found the balance from the American hops and the malt.

Hazy copper color, fluffy tan head. Fresh bitter, herbal hoppy taste with sweet caramel malty notes as well. Fresh hoppy delicious scent. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Wasn’tsure this did belong among my top beers, but now I am sure once more.
Tried again, though not with notes.(Bottled at SMÖF-08)

Slight bit hazy copper color, big fluffy orange head. Fresh hoppy scent, herbal, carmelly malty. Hoppy, bitter, dry malty taste. Bitter aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness.
I’m sorry to say though still nice, the quality of all the HVB beers seems to have dropped, so this is dropped from my top 10 :(
