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!

Maakun (836) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Light amber with big fluffy unstable off white head. Massive hops with tropical fruits, tangerine, lime, flowery and light resin. Then a light malty body with a touch of nuts and caramel, but the whole ale is quite thin and dry and the malt backbone takes a backseat. Therefore mainly bitter and slight tartness and the sweetness is very light. Light to medium bodied with quite a lot of carbonation. Pretty nice stuff for the abv.

50 cl. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! Average creamy off-white head. Good lacing, lightly cloudy amber. Nose is typical pine resin & grapefruit peel hops mixed with some herbal notes (les usual) touch more malt presence, cereal. Taste is touch sugar, bread, cereal + 50/50 herbal + pine & grapefruit peel hops, herbal lingers more in the finish, faint vanilla upfront. Medium body, touch malt feel, good carbonation. Standard fare but well-done and definitely satisfactory.

Aroma: citric, resin, wood, flowers; Appearance: pale urine, minimal head; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness; Palate: astringent finish, soft carbonation, slick texture, medium body Atypical Pale Ale, without typical alcohol content it still tastes good though different :-)

dnicolaescu (947) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 8, 2014
BOTTLE 50CL from Cunningham. Thanks, Henrik. Look: hazy amber, light tan frothy head. Aroma: delicate hops, not too intense, tropical fruit, flowers, no resin, a touch of citrus. Taste: a strange acidic bite at the start, despite the low carbonation, tropical, fruit, low-to-moderate bitter finish. medium body. Nice, but not earth shattering.

Bottle at home (batch nr 1035, bottled 19-09-13). Pours a hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is floral, fruity hops, some malts. Fruity hoppy taste, peach, grapefruit, malts, bitter hoppy aftertaste. Very nice.

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
500mL bottle batch 1066-A best before 06-11-14. Guess I should've paid attention to the date (that isn't always on bottles) before buying it at Sherbrooke AFTER the best before date. Cloudy orange with a bunch of suspended particles. Still a good amount of tropical fruit, pine, and citrus aroma. Taste is sweet with a hearty bitterness. A bit watery.

ERB92 (403) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Fruits, citrus, grass, and a hint of caramel and pine. Amber with a off white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a really nice APA, refreshing and easy drinkable.

Marstonlad (474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki. Pours hazy amber with a little white head with good retention. The aroma displays grass, citrus fruits and some pine, seems as varied as the abundant hop selection suggests. Taste is richly fruity with moderate to prominent hop bitterness. The palate is light to medium bodied, slick and drinkable with an average carbonation. Quality APA; low abv but you could not tell from the taste. Regrettably expensive, at least in Finland.

bbertels (126) - NORWAY - JUL 27, 2014
A veritable flurry of hoppy tastes interrelate in this brew. Heavily carbonated, a nice head and a strong, full taste makes this beer a winner in the class of aggressively hopped pale ales.

A nice hoppy APA. Light amber body, white head. Complex bouquet of a variety of hops. Nice beer.
