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!

MarkoNm (2306) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - OCT 20, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange/golden color, topped with a decent beige head - very decent retention. A pleasantly mild but obvious fruity aroma. The taste starts sweet and fruity, following the nose, finishing with a decent, but not too strong bitterness. Very drinkable. Like it.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Golden brown, opaque with nice white foam. Well aromatic, although the smell is that of a typical pale ale. The taste is also very pure cultivated PA. No surprises, but good at what it does.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a small white frothy head that dissipated to the edges, while the body is a cloudy, sediment-filled orange body. Nose of composted blood oranges, somewhat musky and hosting an Irish Red malt background. Flavour is rather tart, front of marmalade, citrus rind and a dirty finish. There’s a ton of flavour packed into this 4.5% beer. Good. Purchased at Metro Liquors in Saanich for ~$7.60 per bottle.

The Etruscan (627) - Tuscany, ITALY - OCT 4, 2014
Off white foamy full lasting head. Amber colour. Aroma is hoppy with light apple and apricot notes. Flavor is hoppy with apricot and light plumes tones, ending in an hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied.

Schłodzone piwo, a mimo to wystąpił gushing, piwo przegazowane, trzeba było odczekiwać na zejście piany w szkle. Aromat chmielowy bogaty, ale układający się w całość, smak z cytrusowy, owoce egzotyczne, wyraźna goryczka.

rouhlas (2675) - GREECE - SEP 12, 2014
From tap at The Hoppy pub Thessaloniki. Hazy golden color with nice white head. Aroma is mostly hoppy, grassy, floral and citrusy, slightly malty. Taste is sweet and hoppy (like the aroma) bitter. Medium body, oily feel, average carbonation .

sebletitje (9089) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Boutielle 50cl, batch#1148, BB 21/03/2015, bottled 21/03/2014. Light gusher. Dorée, col épais crémeux beige très dense et continuant de s’écouler une fois la bouteille ouverte. Arôme offre un agréable bouquet fruité tirant pas mal sur l’exotique et des pointes e citronnelle. Palais est délicieux avec un savant mariage des houblons, en principe des notes tropicales mais une bonne balance des houblons noble et plus neutre - pelure citron. Amertume fine et fleurie avec un fini entre mangue et goyave. Le caractère malté reste présent mais en retrait pour donner sa place aux houblons.

aleksander9 (1343) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014
Unclear orange with fluffy tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit, strawberry jam, citrus, caramel and floral. Very complex aroma for this ABV. Palate is round and fruity. Aftertaste is dry, fruity, grassy, dank and lingering fresh hop bitterness. Overall: Excellent. Probably the best supermarket beer in Norway. Very impressive considering the amount of different hops. Nøgne Ø clearly knows how to create great beers.

tlind2 (1577) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Opaque, deep golden color, lasting white head. Dry, slightly metallic hoppy aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavor with resin and grapefruit. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Bit too hoppy for my taste, but a quality product considering the ABV.
