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!

LarsEngen (351) - Sandvika, - MAY 3, 2013
50 cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Batch 943/948A. Pours hazy amber with a medium size, off white creamy head.Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon and some sweet fruits. Nice hoppy flavor with the same notes as the aroma. Medium to heavy bitterness, medium carbonation, long bitter finish. Nice one

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 (402) - 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 (34) - 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.

Uklar kobber med høyt skum som varer. Tykk munnfølelse. Lang og god ettersmak med fine bittertoner.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Very hazy medium gold, fine sediment at the end. Peach and melon, pale malts, moderate bitterness. It does the job.

Wischylini (125) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with barely any head. The aroma is dominated by hops, but the blend of 13 different hops don’t leave room for nuances. Other aromas are hay, resin, yeast, and cookies. Taste is bitter and dry. The mouthfeel is thick, almost syrupy, and the beer is almost flat.
