UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 On tap at HaandBryggeriet, Beer Festival, Drammen. Deep orange to amber colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate aroma of fruity hops, hints of flowers and honey. The flavour is first sweet malts, then distinct hops with fruity notes and a bitter finish. Decent beer, but a bit too much sweetness overall.

Draught at Malmø Brygghus Festival for small independent Swedish breweries. Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty, hoppy aroma - floral, fruity, tutti frutti, some exotic fruits in the nose. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Presented as a "random IPA", I like that. Dry bitter finish, well balanced.
