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!

Straw-colour pour, with big white foam. Subtle hoppy aroma, getting some citrus fruits, some pine, and some florals. Taste is fresh and bitter, but bitterness diminishes quite fast.

Hazy golden amber, with a medium white head. Very hoppy, citrus, mango, even some herbs. Taste is sweet, and initially less bitter than expected. But the tail is long, and increasingly bitter. A brew with a purpose.

Fairly hoppy and light body, but as I find with some of the Nogne beers it is just a bit too astringent for my liking. Hop flavors are all over the place, but I thought it had good bitterness and good body to make it a sessionable pale ale, except just a bit too astringent.

Ei mitenkään kummoinen. Bromanin Eerolla juomassa, hyvä aloitus. Kuvauspäivän jälkeinen hässäkkä.

As good as Norwegian supermarket beers get. Great hop aroma of citrus, pine and resin. Nice decent bitterness,medium bodies, not much sweetness. Very good beer considering the ABV. If it had a little less carbonation, it almost compares to a Halcyon.

Flaske 0,5l fra ICA Stakkevollan. Batch 996-C. Drukket hjemme 4 Okt 13. Mørk aprikosfarget. Veldig høyt luftig skum som varer. Mye lacing. Veldig uklar. God fruktaroma. Plommer & fersken. Smaken det samme. Mye frukt. Blir litt tørr i avslutninga. Nok et ypperlig butikkøl.

Murky light brown beer which won’t stop foaming. Foamed out from the bottle for minutes. Not very fruity aroma and neither tastewise. Medium body. Pretty one dimensional considering the variety of hops. A disappointment. Unfortunately it seems that my review wasn’t saved so this is based on my memory.
