oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2009
Bottled@Konttori, Tampere. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity and grassy in a rather dry and bitter way. Flavour is quite much exactly the same along with earthy dryness. Way too dry.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Bottled. Hazy amber. Massive grapefruit aroma. Sweet and thick, really full bodied. Sufficient malt to carry the massive hoppiness. Easy going for it’s size, yet very aromatic and flavourful. A juicy hop monster with some level of balance, but also rather one dimensional.

Cloudy orange-brown beer. Thick white head. Full on fruity and bitter hops. Marmalade, spicy hop. Lingering bitter orange aftertaste. Very drinkable but perhaps just a tad too bitter.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2009-09-03, draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 10-5-8-5-18=46
Cloudy amber color; small creamy head; end of the keg. Oh Lords of beer, this has a massive hop aroma, citrusy sweaty resiny and fruity; dusty cellar, dry hop leaves. Good body strength, with a rather smooth mouthfeel, even if the hopping is a lacerating experience; toffee flavor; the hop is extremely resiny and a bit fruity (bitter oranges), the bitterness induces headaches. Masochist pleasure.

2009-02-24, bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, 9-5-8-5-17=44
with Tomahawk, Chinook, Athanum hops

Cloudy light amber color. Massive hop aroma, very fruity, grapefruit. Good body, powerful toffee, good residual sweetness, full throttle hop, extreme, fruity, resiny, killing, insane. One of the most extreme experiences.

2006-03-15, bottle, 9-4-8-5-18=44
Hazy amber color. Huge fruity aroma, resiny; aromas like a walk in a forest (freshly cut wood, pines…) very original and pleasant. Sweet, malty, extremely bitter taste: this is very good but more ordinary. The final has still a good share of sweetness, which is positive. Excellent.
