On tap @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Hazy pale golden color with creamy head. Fresh aromas from the hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Great smooth body! The oats gives a really pleasant rich body, but not too much. It’s no doubt that the hops are the focus, and the nelson and citra goes really well together. To bad it’s a limited brew.

Sampled @ Lervig. Golden color and a creamy head. Distinct notes of tropical fruits derived from Nelson Sauvin, really showcasing the hop . A velvety smooth body despite not having any crystal malts in it. This ale is all about the hops and the oats! Each sip invites another. Could drink this all night.

On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar. Golden colour, creamy white head. Distinct hoppy aroma, notes of pine neeedles, tropical fruits, citrus and crushed gooseberries, a hint of tomcat. Fairly light bodied for its strength. The flavour is full of luscious hops throughout, notes of pine needles and grapefruit. The bitterness is solid, but the oats still lend a touch of smoothness to the beer. Definitely moreish! *Correction to description: Might also be made available at Henrik Øl & Vinstove in Bergen.
