COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special hoppy flavors and aromas are captured by adding freshly picked, undried hops during the harvest. These wet hops impart a character unlike other brews, that is quite unique and satisfying for those who love hops – the spice of beer. Smell the hop fields, smell the freshness.

Hazy amber beer with a decent off white head. Smooth and slightly soft palate. A little fine carbonation. Light hops, but as the label says - fresh. Pine and mild citrus. Creamy caramel malt underneath with a trace of lactose. Finishes fresh. Really nice light hops. 3.7

Airy and crispy. A little malt cream. Lovely fresh hops - light but full of flavour. Mild grass and a little pine. Subtle tropical fruits. Juicy peach and a little mango. Finishes smooth and semi dry with minty pine. Ridiculously drinkable. The whole 750 vanished!

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus, grapefruit and melon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 13, 2012
22oz bottle from Kentucky. Clear amber with a tiny off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is malty, caramel and a medium to low hop bitterness, no alcohol taste. Medium body with soft carbonation. Very fresh tasting but seems to be lacking on the bitterness, nice malt balance though and really drinkable.

ClubGonzo (4240) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew and Meilby. Dark hazy red-hued orange, small white head. Aroma is fresh herbal grass, water melon, red berries and some sour straw-like tones. Taste is caramel, melon, hints of strawberries and grass. Full body, medium carbonation. OK, but very memorable.

ogreface (1368) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 25, 2012
A kinézete akár a többi dipának, talán egy árnyalattal vörösebb az átlagnál. Édeskés illata van, sok déli gyümölccsel, sárgabarackkal, sárgadinnyével és fenyőgyantával. Ízében is árad a sok édeskés gyümölcs, frissen és kicsit lekvárosan egyaránt, de aztán harap a komló, keserűen, fenyőgyantásan, borókásan. Közepesen testes és bubis. Utóíze keserédes és igen száraz. Rendkívül kiegyensúlyozott dupla ipa, igencsak itatja magát.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a blurry golden-amber beer with a quickly fading and heavy sidesticking just off-white head. Peachy, fruity aroma with some sweetness and melon. Smells really nice. Oily near sticky in texture with a average small bubbly carbonation level. Grassy bitter flavors, and it somehow actually reminds me a bit of a fruity tea! Honey and fruits also in here with a little bit of alcohol in the finish- but still well camouflaged. Good stuff! 27.07.2012

bergstaden (1386) - Rřros, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2012
Dark golden with off white head - Has a very good hop aroma with some flovers and pine, and olso some malt in the back - has a good malt body to support the very good hop flavours and bitterness from fruity / piney hops - dry lingering hop finish - this was very good

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at HaandFestival 2012. A quite pale golden beer, lightly hazy, and topped by a white, finger-thick head. Grassy, piney and citrusy nose with some room left for pale malts. The flavor has grassy and citrusy hops up front, biscuity pale malts as a backdrop, and then there’s bitterness kicking in. It’s quite dry on the palate, more or less full-bodied, and it ends with a fruity, grassy and bitter hoppyness. A nice and tasteful beer I could easily drink often. 120505

Bottle 650ml @ ClubGonzo
Pours cloudy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, watermelon, grassy and some sour notes. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

POLK (2219) - Hřrning, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2012
2012: Fruity, soft, delicious hops. slightly oily. No hop bitterness. Something sweet. A beer you can easily drink a whole bottle of themselves, despite it being a big bottle.
