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!

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

Orange color. Aromas of caramel (just a bit), oranges, passion fruit, pineapple. Overall, a very pleasing fruity hop aroma. Starts out just a bit sweet and malty, finishes bitter, but not overly so. Lots of hop flavors in this, everybody seems to come to the table. Fruity, spicy, bit of herbs, touch of pine. Medium body, easy to drink. This should be a mess, but it was handle delicately and ends up being a symphony of hoppy goodness. Easily the best supermarket strength beer in Norway and one of the best of the style as well. Delicious.

Grzesiek79 (3945) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Dry, Dry, Dry, and absolutly Dry Ale. Smells like ten Spirit and other deo body spray.Mnostwo perfum i roznych kwiatow polnych od rumianku, maki po lawende i facelie. Do tego grejfruty i liczi. Piana srednia choć dobrej jakości, średnio trwala. Kolor pomarańczy, silnie mętne, o błotnistej strukturze. Spak totalnie chmielny ze zwala z nog, wytrawny leciutko slodowy ale koncert tu wielki graja różnorodne chmiele. Cudownie wytrawne, dla nie których z pewnoscia nie pijalne a dla mnie bardzo i to bardzo. Piwo dla wytrawnych i doswiadczonych piwoszy. Almost perfect Pale Ale.

Bottle shared by little brother. Thanks. Light golden. White head. Grapefruit, yeasty, malted bread. Medium bitter, fair fizz. Good. A drinker, not one to dwell over.

caesar (6610) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle from Biernavigatie, batch 1570 brewed 02.02.16 BB 02.02.17, large sample. Slight hazy golden to orange color, medium frothy head. Aroma of lots of citrus and grapefruit together with biscuit and cookie from the malt. Medium bitterness in taste, some malty sweetness, citrus. Lovely stuff, would be some serious session material. If only I had more of this.

Brastad (15) - - MAY 13, 2016
Klar lys oransje farge. Lity hvitt skum. Medium kullsyre. Tørr, fruktig og bitter aroma. Citrus. Smak av tropisk frukt og humle. Mye humle, men overskygges noe av bitterhet. Fin, balansert bitter ettersmak. Frisk og god. Ikke bunnfall.

Tap @ Monterey. Pours hazy orange/amber with a white head. Aroma of bright citrus fruits, orange, mango, pineapple, peach and slight juicy. The taste is juicy wit orange, lemon peel, wheat, peach and slight malt in the backbone. Nice IPA.
