COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 7% IPA is brewed with loads of American and New Zealand hops, it has an amazingly fruity aroma and flavour (without the bitterness you may expect for such a heavily hopped beer) and is backed up with a biscuity malt base.

yngwie (14773) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2015
On tap at What’s Brewing. It’s an unclear, orange colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is fruity and piney, with some pale malts and citrus zest. It has a nice bitterness, with flavors of fresh fruits and pine cones. Citrus zest too. Dry, medium to full-bodied and with a lasting bitter finish. Long bitter finish. Nothing wrong with this one, except it fails to thrill me. Drinks easily though. 141101
