4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This is a weird hop. Nose is very green. Granny Smith apples and green capsicums with a strong lemon zest and grassy tone on the nose. Works very well, although a tad unbalanced. Lemon zest is hugely at the forefront while the granny smith apples slowly work their way through to the finish. Spritzy and soft carbonation, although a slightly quick finish. Damn weird and damn good

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very strange nose !
Smoked ham and cooked vegetable ...
I don’t really know if Apollo hop variety gave this profile to the beer or if this is a reduction note linked to a fermentation issue. Anyway, that’s interesting for tasting, not really for drinking ... maybe served with a Sauerkraut ... nothing else !

On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours hazy dark golden with a small white head.
Strong citrus and flowery hop aroma. Taste of really fresh hops, fruity with a herbal touch of mint at the end. Not bad at all. Dry mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Apollo reminds me a bit about Sorachi Ace, but the dill aroma isn’t as agressive. Nice to try a new kind of hops, but I don’t think I will be using this one in one of my own brews.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
29-DEC-2011, bottle @home, from "Kihoskh".
Amber/golden with lasting beige head.
Nose is grape fruit, resin, and grass. Also a slight skunky note is there.
Taste is grape fruit, iron, grass, earth, and a bit more skunk.
Ends bitter and long, but not in a superfruity pleasant hoppy way.
Malty notes in this brew as well, but i sort of concentrate on the hop variety. Not a favorite hop.
