Bottle from Olbutikken. Nice citrussy aroma but not in your face. Clean maltiness with marked bitterness. Nice pine and citrus taste, very much like Sierra Nevadas house style. One of the best hoppy lagers I’ve tried.

This is easily one of the best beers I have ever had. This is up there in my book with elevated ipa. There is just so much going on with this one it’s crazy. First thing you get blasted with in the aroma is huge citrus, dankness and tropical fruit and a nice sweet easy aroma from the lager yeast. I think the lager part of this beer is what makes it so damn good. I cannot even imagine the skill it took to make this beer. Taste is bitter and full of citrus and tropical fruit. It’s so hoppy. I guess it’s clear I loved this one. I’ve gotten bored with a lot of ipa’s now because they all taste the same and all are basically the same beer just packaged different. This one is so refreshing and so delicious it’s made me excited for a craft beer again. I wish I could get it where I am, but I had to go home to Connecticut to grab a bunch of 4 packs which I’ll be savoring. Definitely without a doubt get this if you see it, it’s a really awesome beer and I can’t say enough good things about it. Cheers!!
