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!

ACD (634) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 31, 2013
50cl bottle. Murky orange. Loads of great mango, tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. Juicy orange and sugary pineapple in the taste, herbal bitterness, lots of thick sprucey notes, cake dough and caramel. Well balanced. Juicy orange finish alongside bitter herbal zing. Really good - chocked full of flavour. Cracking session ale.

Pours murky dark orange marmalade. Citrus pine aroma. Flavour is mild sweet citrus with sharp bitterness. Nice

ciaranc (875) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 30, 2013
500ml bottle. Orange pour, thin white head. Resin, pine, tropical fruits nose. Very bitter in the flavour, backed by some sweet malt. Decent body. Quite forward carbonation, long bitter finish.

ElDesmadre (1553) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle. Citrus and resin in the sweet aroma, with negligible hints of mango and white grapes. Dry, light tart, quite bitter taste. Nice, thick carbo, accounting for a splendid head and a soft mouthfeel. Not near as complex as I expected it to be. Something’s lacking in this surprisingly boring beer.

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 27, 2013
Orange/brown hazy pour with a frothy white head. Citrus, toffee, mandarin, slight banana peel, malts, slight biscuit. Medium carbonation and slightly dry. Another very good beer from an awesome brewery and a great session beer.

oh6gdx (20313) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottled (thanks laiti!). Slightly hazy orange colour, huge foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is mellow toffee, fruits, floral and grassy notes along with some slight nectar and honey as well. Flavour is floral, fruity, nectary, sweet caramel malts and toffee to it. Mellow and pleasant.

BillHick420 (426) - North Dakota, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2013
Pours copper with a white frothy head. Sweet passion fruit and floral hops on the nose, some resin. Aroma of sweet fruits, cereal malts, and a nice balance coming from the hops. This sets the standard fro american pale ale!

Idiosynkrasie (3798) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear copper-ish dark amber colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Piney hop aroma, a dry zesty touch, some citrus fruity notes, hints of grass, caramel malty background. Taste is dry, slightly grassy hoppy, cautious and mild malty basis, hints of nut parings; dry, narrow finish.

Unde (358) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Cloudy orange-to-brown colour with delicate small head but lots of lacing. Aroma is really awesome, there is zesty citrus fruits, sweet tropical fruits, some spices and sweet berries as well. Taste has sweet tropical fruits, pines, spices and citrus with notable bitter ending. Lots of flavors from hops, with medium body and nicely carbonated. Hops rule this pale ale.

Hop_Hedonist (246) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2013
Not convincing - thin bodied - malt dominant not enough hops - way over carbonated - I think Nogne suffered from too much indecision as taste is confused and two dimensional.
