Hazy reddish brown color, tan head. Pineapple, grape, hoppy scent. Mostly bitter, also a bit sweet taste. HUGE bitter aftertaste, after 40 seconds or so. Warming alcohol kick in the stomach. Smooth mouthfeel, very high bitterness.

ekstedt (5405) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2009
Sample (10 cl) from a big bottle at Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy mahogny, medium creamy beige head. Enormously strong & fresh hop aroma with notes of pine needles, citrus, and dark berries. Medium bodied and smooth. Insanely bitter. Nice but a bit gimmicky with the huge bitterness.

Rune (7992) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2009
During six days in Copenhagen I enjoyed this delicious brew on tap at CBF 09, Lord Nelson and Plan B. Attractive deep, russet coloured body. Minimal head. Smell of grapes and citrus peels. Dry hopped taste profile with pine needles, dark fruits and caramel sweetness. Long lasting bittersweet aftertaste. Massive and heavy and a joy to the senses (mid-May 09).

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Tap at Plan B. Brown color, off-white head. Aroma has very nice hops and fruit. Flavor is very hoppy with a malty background. Very bitter finish. A bit extreme hop-bomb - not very balanced, but very drinkable.
