3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark gold. Peach aroma. Sweet fruit, over-ripe oragnes. Dryness in the finish, but the sugar also lingers. Full flavour, but this is a hop to use in moderation.

Sampled as part of a hop education class. Very mild hop flavor, with mild bitterness. The beer itself has a nice malt backbone.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fra flaske på Humle i annen, den andre av de i alt nitten vi prøvde: vanilje og karamell i aroma. Forholdsvis lite smak og ettersmak, men det kommer seg når temperaturen i glasset steg litt. Dog ingen højdare. IBU 35.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz bottle. Murky, floaty filled amber-orange body. Steady beige head. Sandy, woody, oceanside citrus bitterness in the aroma. Holds up OK, but once again the body really detracts from the experience, the yeasty thick malt tones dominate and overwhelm the hops. Ends up feeling a little oily, resinous..not in a good way. Not really an enjoyable beer, especially for the price.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy tan with minimal head. Smells of grass with hints of metallic notes. A bit of caramel as well. The tase is bitter with soft carbonation and finishes weakly and a bit oily. Not too complex considering the single variety present.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Showcasing the Willamette variety, this beer has a cloudy, murky appearance with a bright orange color and a cream-colored head. Its aroma is spicy, gently subduing caramel malts. The flavor is spicy and fruity as well, clean and light on the palate. The finish is slightly on the bitter side of the tracks, taking the stage over the grain and crystal characteristics with herbal graininess.
