stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - FEB 4, 2012
Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite/orange head. The aroma is malt and hops with pineapple, mango and tropical fruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional bitterness. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

maneliquor (2786) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2012
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

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - JAN 25, 2012
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 !

gunnar (4867) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2012
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.

Skinnyviking (6383) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2012
Draught. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Hazy orange body. Fruity hoppy aroma and flavor. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2011
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.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2011
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.
