4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010, courtesy of Håge, thank you sir! This one was hand pulled through a hoppinator, which contained 300 grams of fresh Cascade hops - insane! This gave it a fresh citrus, grass and meadow aroma, meanwhile the malts were decent, and the result was very pleasant. I tried this one very early in the festival.

On tap @ 2nd BBF with fresh hops added. The aroma is as expected quite hoppy and has citrus, grass and pine. Slightly hazy, orange coloured beer with an off-white lace. The taste is bitter and has great pines and citrus and some herbal tones. Light bodied. Nice starter.

On tap @ 2nd BBF. The aroma is very hoppy, bit herbal/flowery and gives me the impression of juniper. Hazy, orange coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is slightly bitter, grassy hoppy and refreshing. Light bodied, easy drinking beer. Good.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 Cask @ BBF 2010. Tapped through heaps of hops (hoppinator), giving the beer a huge but adorable leafy citric hoparoma. Medium bodied. Malty. Leafy very fresh herbal and citric hops in the flavor, lingering on in the long aftertaste. The "hoppination" brings a world of goodness to this beer.
without a Hoppinator......
Keg @ 2nd BBF. Orange color, hazy. Peach and confit fruit in the aroma. Strong cellar flavor, earthy with lots of hops. Totally unbalanced, alas...
