Orange-brown, thick white head. Very much honey in the aroma, some grass. Taste balanced, very bittery, flowery, some soap as well. Long bitter finish. Good but unsurprising.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a hazy orange with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is lightly oxidized, some pine-like and fruity hops prevailing. Low carbonation. flavour is very hoppy and bitter, very dry. Pine hops dominate, but some caramel is to be found as well. The oxidation is very limited (probably due to the large amount of hops in this).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught (SOPP2007, Helsinki)
Clear orangy colour, light head. Hugely hoppy aroma, some creamyness and citrus, a little honey. Extremely bitter taste, al
as dominating the taste, hints of grapefruit. Light maltiness in the finish accompanying the hops saves it from being too 1-dimensional, but it is a bit of a 1-trick pony.
