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 Zeland, Check Republic, USA, Germany and Australia. A total of 13 different types of hops. It does not get better than this!

Turboninja (87) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Medium-light aroma with a hint of yeasty bitterness, sweet fruits and apricot. Brown-golden color with hazy liquid and large white head. Strong, very hoppy taste with some bitterness, fruits and a bit of malts and citrus. Averagely balanced. Narrow-medium taste spectrum. Medium-long aftertaste with hops and fruits. Light-medium palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall quite fresh beer that higher carbonation suits. Too much hops when compared to taste.

allmyvinyl (3135) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Batch 996 BBE 12/07/14. Massively over-carbonated. Poured into three separate pint glasses due to excess foaming. Clearest of three three was amber, big white head. Yeasty aromas with a touch of Brett. Pine and tropical fruit from the hops. Taste is bitter and dry. Not there best by some margin.

maneliquor (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2014
A little disappointed with this one. Tasted good enough but was way over carbonated and word is that most of the stock which came into Perth was like this so guessing it didn’t travel too well which is a surprise because Nogne O is almost always in great condition. Loads of pleasing citric zest and floral notes. Very balanced and goes down super easy. The carbonation issue just ruins a solid beer unfortunately

DutchDrebus (3967) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle @ home shared by joes. Hazy yellow to orange colour with a medium sized white head. Smells hops, fresh, fruity, slightly chives, nice. Tastes hops, bitter, fresh, fruity, tropical fruits, pineapple, resin, very nice. Medium body, fizzy carbo, crisp.

BarryKonrad (97) - NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Pours a hazy and light orange colour, with a white, fluffy head. Lots of sediments floating about, and some carbonation as well. Head has some retention. On the nose there is bread and some citrus fruityness. Mouthfeel is medium light. Flavour is pine, grapefruit, hoppy bitterness. Nice bitter finish. Both refreshing and interesting at the same time. A nice session beer.

maekchu (2076) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Serious gusher, with a long slow steady spume crawling out of the botte. Aromas of cookies, yeast, and floor wax. Cloudy orange/amber, with a thick merengue head. Mild citrus/pine hop mix, slightly rough mid palate / overripe dates in finish. Medium body. An infected batch? Not so good. Homebrew-like yeastiness abounds.

KyotoLefty (6318) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle. Gusher with seeming infection. Cloudy orange, huge foamy head. Grassy, tangy nose, acid. Dry flavor under sweetness, caramel, tart. Something wrong here.

KM (329) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Pale brown body, huge white head. Aroma is, of course, hoppy. Citrus, pineapple, sweet candy. Flavour is fruity, but too much carbonation makes it hard to tell what it tastes. Medium to heavy bitter finish. (At home, 02.05.2014)
