Pours clear orange with white head, aroma has notes of some pine, grass, biscuit and a touch of caramel. Taste is similar, a little weak on the hop front but has some slight biscuit and caramel to balance the grassy notes. Overall ok, but a bit weak in flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy honey-hued body, medium creamy white head, leaving laces on the sides of the glass. Nose is pale malts and grassy hops, with hints of cloudberry and caramel. Taste is mild and fresh grassy hop tones with some mellow malty tones. A nice APA, all in all, which seems a bit underrated IMO. Either the competition is crazy among the APAs, or I am missing something. Or the whole world is just WRONG, of course. I sometimes get that feeling and take comfort in the security of not at all being a narcissist.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Henrik, Bergen. This one pours a light cloudy golden body with a small creamy and sidesticking off-white head. Aroma is fruit-yeasty, some grapefruit, citrus, ripe strawberries, some nice sweet caramel and hints of some light watery hops. Itís lively to aggressive carbonated, has a oily to watery mouthfeel and itís medium to light-bodied. Tastes fizzing and a bit sharp. Thereís some fruity yeast in here, malts and some sharp hops. Ends nice bitter with a mild dry aftertaste. Not to exciting, but easy and light drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very clear amber with about a half of a finger of stark white head. A faint sweet aroma. The flavor is pretty muted, with just a bit of a hoppy bitterness at the end. Itís only okay.
