4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is a bit thin, some floral notes and caramel sweetness. Colour is very orange, quite clear and the foam is thick and creamy. I must say I really enjoyed the look of this beer. Taste is extremely bitter, mouth-twistingly bitter both on the onset and in the aftertaste. Very pleasant beer to enjoy slowly.

Draught at SBWF 2010 (Snickeriet - Oppigårds). It poured a clear yellow liquid with a small white head. Flavour of grassy hops. Mild flavour and light body. Easy to drink but felt one-sided. Similar to their Hoppy Saaz.

(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden colour with lasting, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, grapefruit and fresh floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus (grapefruit, lemon) and hints of pine needles. The finish is fairly bitter and quite dry. Medium body. Possibly a bit weak in the malt department, but really impressive hop character. Very nice.
