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!

DraftDodger (1121) - 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 (1530) - 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.

Gilrond (40) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle 500ml from shop in Norway. Nice pale cloudy color with frothy white head. Aroma citrusy, earthy with caramel tones. Taste full, nice malty, then best citruses and in the end comes nice bitterness. Maybe best beer I’ve drunk.

hawthorne00 (3544) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle, bb 1/16. One inch of beer, 5 of head. Aroma dominated by tropical fruit - mango, passionfruit, guava- also some vague citrus, grass, peppery herbs. Light bodied. Lots of fruit and a slightly harsh, weedy and peppery bitterness. I guess it didn’t travel. Poor.

mariuszek (1164) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Dark golden, hazy, medium head. Fruity citrus aroma, somehow messy. I do not see any sense in adding 13 hops, unless you clean up your store and do not want to waste anything. Fruity taste with buttery notes. Low - medium bitterness, fruity aftertaste leaving oily buttery layer in mouth. No.

kokkenrolv (298) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle @Meny. Aroma of the usual suspects; tropical fruit salad, fruity orange, citrus and orange peel. Golden/amber, hazy, white medium head. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, tastes of citrus, tropical fruits, orange, hints of something piney. Light body, average carbonation, bitter aftertaste. Nice fresh hoppy pale ale!

hazy golden to amber colour with a large white head. Pine, grapefruit and grassy tones in aroma that initially is quite strong but gradually mellows out. Lots of fresh citrus fruits. Mild spiciness in the taste and the bitterness and carbonation is spot on.

Hubster (59) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2015
Igen en virkelig god IPA fra Nøgne Ø!! (eller GPA om man vil). Massere af aroma - der er frugter, blomster, grantræ, korn, vådt træ, blommer, tyggegummi. Global humle, men helt klart et dejligt Westcost-amerikansk eftertryk. Fyldig i munden - men ikke helt så bitter og en lidt kortere eftersmag end Nøgne Ø’s India Pale Ale på 7,5% alkohol. Til gengæld er den frisk og har en meget imponerende fylde med sine beskedne 4,5%!!

MrOrla (2304) - Odense C, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours pale golden, with a white head. Aroma of hops, floral, tropical, light malts, light perfume notes. Taste is foral, hopward, nice malt base, orange peel slighty bitter. Good drinkability. Fresh!
