On tap at Cask Bar & Kitchen. Appearance: slightly hazy yellow with little to no head. Aroma: good amount of pine needle hops, citrus rind and mango. Flavour: bitter at first, becomes sweeter, a little pine and citrus, nicely balanced, lovely long hoppy finish. Quite lovely.

Keg in the CBC Clapham. This was a rich amber, slightly hazy beer with a medium white foam head. Nose was citrous punchy with grapefruit dominating and then some light tropical fruit mango and passion fruit. Bit of musty grain in there too and some pine. Taste was grapefruit citrous, lime, mango and some pine, with a bit of subtle caramel malt character. Decent pale ale more along the lines of an American IPA.

Keg in Craft Clapham. Quite light yellowy colour, thin head. Some bitterness from the hops, hints of citrusy grapefruit, slighly sherbety, pine. Somehow a bit clunky, didn’t feel balanced, maybe lacking malt character. Wasn’t unpleasant but I woudn’t have had another.

Flaske fra Meny Skjetten, kjøpt etter gjentatte oppfordringer fra Arne. Klar kobberfarget med hvitt skum. Medium kullsyre. Litt bitter, lukt av grape / sitrus. God syrlig ettersmak, en veldig god butikkøl!

Hazy amber, not much head. At Brasserie Posten, Geiranger.
Light and mellow for APA, the hops are a bit disjointed, but the balance is straight SNPA.

Rigtig dejlig pale ale. Dejlig duft og smag. Skummet er fint og flot. Humlen er en af mine favorittyper. Positivt overrasket. Godt gået, Norge.

330 can in a trade with Gunnar (thanks again man!!). Golden orange, hazy body with a white head that left really fast. Aromas inittialy of lemon, grapefruit and citrus, with some sweet notes of fruits and yeast maybe. Taste was better, with citrus dominate the flavor, sweet fruits backing up and lemon notes finishing the palate. Aftertaste was nearly absent, very slightly there. Light body and light carbonation. A nice beer for the given alcohol, but I wanted a bit more.
