COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Harmonic bitterness. Soft taste. A little touch of citrus at the end. Long lasting bitterness.

Pours golden copper with a modest but creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine, lemon zest, herbs and some apricot. Light to medium body, slick feel, medium carbonation. Taste is refreshing and floral with hops, grapefruit, spices and grass. Dry and bitter finish that lasts quite a while.

JorisPPattyn (8440) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Light gushing to huge yellowish head, fed by lively carbonated yellow-orange beer; lovely lace. Hoppy nose, vegetable, moss or aquatic plants, hopoils, resin - very green. Again hoppy - indeed difficult to say what kind or even classification. Spicy, peppery, long-lasting bitterish flavour. Well-carbonated. Very nice try. Hops are nowhere exaggerated, cancel each others defaults.

SinH4 (1087) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
Pale orange color with huge white head. Grassy hops, fruity: citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Taste is decently earthy, herbal as well as a bit fruity. Bitter dry finish. Easy to drink despite its complexity. A lot of flavours in there.

Skinnyviking (7786) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle at Blå Rock Tromsø. Low but lasting white fluffy head. Hazy amber body. Hoppy fruity aroma and flavor with a relatively high carbonation and a long dry finish.

sharkydodson (631) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 14, 2015
the aroma of pine cones and spicy grasses with some hints of fruits... the taste of tropical fruits and pine needles with shades of grapefruit and some spices... bright hopping... dry and bitter aftertaste...

CacheManyHose (391) - HONG KONG - JAN 14, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Very cloudy amber. Sudsy white head, big bubbles, thick foamy legs. Smells fruity (orange. apple, apricot), lightly spiced malt, musty slightly herbal hop. Taste is less juicy/fruity and more musty. Bitter, quick finish. Body is smooth, crisp, bitter, light spice. Good but I imagine I would rate this more highly if it were fresher (?). Tasted again at the TAP Nøgne O food pairing for Matt's birthday. Had with the triple happiness cheese toastie. Huge architectural foamy head. Smells and tastes quite bitter, somewhat musty-grassy hay. Body is medium but with a lot of sessionable foaminess. Nice that this has so much hop for a session pale ale, but not that much else going on.

HKdIPA (458) - HONG KONG - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy - quite hazy - orange copper. Aroma is good - lots of mingling hop flavors: zesty citrus, lush mango and pineapple, pine, earthy spice. Taste is less exciting, but still good. Very smooth in palate and taste. Hoppiness is more subdued - a bit musty, resinous, some apple. Not too little flavor considering it's a relatively light beer but not as much as I was hoping for. Might not be that fresh though.

Fruit, citrus, is drunk easily. Very decent APA. Excellent hop bitterness on the finish.
