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!

Bottle. Cloudy dark orange with semi lasting small head. Very nica aroma of hops and malt, mostly caramalt. Hops turns out like flowers, grass and citrus. The same in the taste. Nice bitterness and even some body witch is not usual in 4,5 beers. A great APA.

Appearance: Batch 1497. Orange golden, hazy. Small white head.
Aroma: Lots of fruit, citrus. Good amount of hops.
Taste: Strong bitterness, overshadowing the fruity elements. Lacks balance. Packs a punch for a 4.5% beer, though.

Michael27 (723) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 8, 2016
In Berlin vom Fass getrunken. Optisch ist das dark red amber eine Klasse für sich. Dafür idt des Hopfens zu viel: 13 Sorten? Wer soll sich da noch zurecht finden?

The heavy mixture of humle made the beer too bitter. The aroma however was inviting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Supermarket Kamppi. Bit hazy orange colour, huge foamy white head, that leaves some lace. Nose has mellow toffee, fruits, floral and grassy notes.. Flavour is floral, fruity, nectary, sweet caramel malts and toffee to it. Really good for low abv.

DraftDodger (1043) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2016
Copenhagen 25/2 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Drawing of old ship partially hidden between big orange Ø. Irritatingly gushy upon opening. Pours hazy orange yellow with huge white head. Settles as 3 cm thick layer of foam. Heavy lacing on the side of the glass. Pronounced aroma of tropical fruit. Passion Fruit and peach. Tart citrus notes. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Aroma is fruity with distinct bitter citric notes. Nice bitterness in the aftertaste as well. Semi dry finish. When you get through being thoroughly irritated by the gushiness and getting beer all over your kitchen table you get a good and solid bitter exerience.

McWorta (1467) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 13, 2016
Golden-orange light opalescent with an off white fine poring head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange, herbal nbotes, some hints of lemon and green mango with a subtle hint of bready-hay touch develops. Fine carbonation, bit slick with a well developped light slender body. Brisk short sweetness with a well pronounced fruity hop bitterness develops. Medium lasting finish. Nice and quaffable yet the hops can overdo it.
