330ml bottle from Summer Wine online. Deep orange-brown amber colour, foam white head leaving alittle lacing and aroma of malt caramel, citrus, spicey hop. Taste is malt caramel with tangy, floral grapefruit, pine and earthy bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry woody earthy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

olio (6396) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Resinous hops first thing on the nose, lots of malts too, some piney notes with some sweet orange. Malty bitter palate, somewhat bready, citric fruits and mild hops on the flavor. A solid IPA leaning slightly towards maltier side, good.

Foffern (1276) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a nice and cloudy orange color, with a small, off-white colored foam head. The aroma is surprisingly sweet how the first thing that strikes me is fruity jelly sweets. Furthermore feels mango, blood orange, pine needles and grass. The hops is more pronounced in the flavor with tones of grass, wood, some cardboard and a lot of resin. The finish is dry. Mouth feel is smooth, and the bitterness felt quite powerful. The aroma was interesting, but the taste feels a little unbalanced. It’s possible that this is not my favorite kind of hops, but I think the hops dominate too much in this beer.

@Indyman - Clear light brown appearance. The aroma and flavour are clean, crisp, fresh and especially hoppy.
