Very nice hop/malt balance, with a pronounced hop bitterness at the finish. A new offering in MN. I’ll be having more of this. Reminds me of a dIPA, but it doesn’t pack as much ABV.

Benzai (14075) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle @ home. Not sure why the description says it’s "golden in color", as mine is without a doubt hazy orange to dark orange colored, but whatever. Medium sized beige head. Aroma is of malts and hops, lightly resinous. Taste malts, lightly caramel, hops, resin, resinous bitterness and some malt bitter. Sticky texture, medium body and suitable generous carbonation. Quite pleasant.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Hoppy fruity smell with pine and a caramel maltbase in the background. Similar taste. Medium bitterness. Nice maltbase that lifts the hops. This is probably a bit aged since the hops feels a bit faded. Still a nice beer though. Clean.

VamboladeTolly (1533) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle @ Žmogšala3 festival, Vilnius. Pours amber almost no head. Aroma: caramel, sweetish, hay- feels like old and the hops are dead- didnt saw BB. Taste: same as aroma+ a bit grassy, bitter. Medium body. Bitter finish. Hope I can get it more- maybe it was out of date.
