TET (2672) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2009
Cloudy, orange beer with medium and white head. Hop.Over.Dose.Ale have hoppy and aromatic aroma with pine needles and some fruits. Flavour is strongly bitter and it is near of overdose of hops in the first mouthfull. But you adjust to strong bitterness quickly and there are also lot of pine needles, grass and maybe some lemon and then flavour turns into long and bitter end. All the flavour seems to become from hops and I would wish also something more than only hops. Quite easy to drink but not watery. I had to wait a long time before I get this beer into my glass, but worth to wait. Strogly bitterness beer, that pleasures hop freeks.

Hermod (6489) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2009
50cl bottle. Golden color with a frothy white head, that lasts. Citrus and lots of hops in aroma. A very dry taste, citrus well hidden, but it is there, more in the aftertaste: Very very dry and bitter, just as it says on the bottle. Think this will be a favourite.

Finwe (434) - Grankulla, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Cask at Black Door. Hazy golden yellow colour with a white head. A fresh, citric aroma. A dry, hoppy taste, the impression of citrus fruits here too. Dry, hoppy bitter aftertaste. A refreshing beer to quench your thirst with.

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2009
Bottled. Hazy golden, small head. Sweaty citric grapefruity aroma. Very dry, almost thin. Slim and drinkable, but mindblowingly bitter. The lightest bready malt has makes no attempt to hold the floodgate of inky bitterness back. Certainly not shooting for balance, but achieving drinkability anyway.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. It’s a hazy, yellow beer with a small, white head. The aroma is hoppy citrusy, with pine cones and some pale malts. Sweet, resiny and citrusy flavor with a nice bitterness. Medium body. Bitter finish. A very quenching and refreshing beer, lacking on balance, but done in this way, it’s perfectly ok. (090514)
