omhper (20328) - 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 (14628) - 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)

SaulusHumulus (47) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2009
Bottled. Pours golden, somewhat hazy with a big, fluffy head. Aroma is hoppy, hoppy and hoppy, though grapefruit is present too. Flavor is totally dominated by hops, bitter ones. Bitterness lasts from sniff to the next sip.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Looks great in the glass, big head, hazy golden color. Aroma is quite fruity, whereas the taste is completely dominated by bitter hops. Very drinkable though, perhaps due to the quite low alcohol level. Good work.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2008
A 0.5L bottle from K-market. Pale lacy head. Mild nose. Hazy pale yellow colour. Strong hoppiness. Moutfull of hops. Not my favourite beer.

rosenbergh (7628) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2008
UPDATED: APR 16, 2010 500 ml bottle. Finland.
Hazy golden colour with small white head. Fruity, piney and extremely bitter hoppiness in aroma. Dry highly bitter hoppy flavour with citrus, pine and resin. Long-lasting bitter aftertaste. What else could you expect from 100 EBU Ale. Great beer for a 3.9%.
