Hops- the best there is in this world! Well, almost. This is a hop driven beer. A beer where it is all about hops. But what kind of hops? We just couldn’t decide which, and used hops from all over the world; England, Slovenia, New Zealand, Czech Republic, USA, Germany and Australia. A total of 13 different types of hops. It does not get better than this!

Litt uklar oransje farge med et hvit skum, skummet hang godt i glassveggen. Aroma av malt, gress, sitrus og furunål. Smaken følger aroma, men her fremhever grapefrukten seg. Fin munnfølelse og en fin bitterhet i avslutningen.

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit and coniferous resins thrive in this lean and prickly New World Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam laces all the way down the misty orange-hued blond.
-Mouthfeel is slender enough to enhance drinkability.
-Cereals clearly appear under the hoppy festivities.
-Carbonation feels artificial but still works with the refreshing flavor profile.
-Resinous bitterness is salient.

Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok on the tap takeover/meet the brewer evening. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is tropical fruit citrus malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a light dry spicy pepper hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

500ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy, citrus and pine with some herbal notes. Taste is a lemony sourness with a grainy malt sweetness. Not up to standards, Let’s go hard core!

Turboninja (452) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Medium-light aroma with a hint of yeasty bitterness, sweet fruits and apricot. Brown-golden color with hazy liquid and large white head. Strong, very hoppy taste with some bitterness, fruits and a bit of malts and citrus. Averagely balanced. Narrow-medium taste spectrum. Medium-long aftertaste with hops and fruits. Light-medium palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall quite fresh beer that higher carbonation suits. Too much hops when compared to taste.

allmyvinyl (9052) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Batch 996 BBE 12/07/14. Massively over-carbonated. Poured into three separate pint glasses due to excess foaming. Clearest of three three was amber, big white head. Yeasty aromas with a touch of Brett. Pine and tropical fruit from the hops. Taste is bitter and dry. Not there best by some margin.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2014
A little disappointed with this one. Tasted good enough but was way over carbonated and word is that most of the stock which came into Perth was like this so guessing it didn’t travel too well which is a surprise because Nogne O is almost always in great condition. Loads of pleasing citric zest and floral notes. Very balanced and goes down super easy. The carbonation issue just ruins a solid beer unfortunately
