Decent Nøgne Ø quality. My tongue can’t make much difference of the hops from different countries, hops are really fine anyway!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5L brown bottle, 4.5%, b@Eurospar Langnes Tromsø, brewed 14.oct.2013, #1049A.
Off-white head diminishes on an hazy amber/orange body. Few lacings in my mug.
Aroma with bitter, spruce, herbs, a bit citric over it all.
Tastes bitter malts, a drop of orange juice, grains, dark bread in the back.
Herbal spruce to palate, well bodied, but not overwhelming. Ends with malts and bitter in nice balanced combination. Overall a fresh hoppy hoppy ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazed, golden orange beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is very hop forward, as expected, with various influences of grass, peaches, citric and piney hops. Very nicely done. Flavour is fairly bitter, but it’s a bit of a mess. A good tasting mess for sure, but still a bit messy. Too much different kind of hops I guess. Long, bitter and dry finish. Very enjoyable and easy sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange with a huge foamy head. Aroma is hugely fruity hops, peaches and other tropical fruits, hint of metallic side aroma. Taste is hoppy and bitter, a bit stingy with pine needles. Medium body and co2, finishes a bit short. Rather okay, maybe suffers from the low abv.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly murky orange with medium head. Lacing wasn’t noted. Notes are pretty solid for a foreign pale ale: grassy, dank, hoppy brew with some nice diesel tones. Medium body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange with good head
Faint aroma has citrus and mango.
Flavor has same hoppy notes but lacks body and the solid bitter kick I was expecting. Aftertaste brings some bitterness though.
