On tap @ Cardinal, Stavanger, Brewers night. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small creamy head. Aroma is nice and hoppy with apricots and orange peel. Creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter with orange peel, peaches and some tropical notes, as well as a good sweet malt backbone. Lingering citrusy finish.

gunnar (5292) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2014
On tap at Cardinals Brewers Night. Pours hazy orange with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of oranges, tangerine and citrussy hops, lovely. Crisp and fresh clean mouthfeel. Taste is light sweet soft and creamy pale malts, followed by a fresh citrussy hop bomb, lingering bitter herbal and minty finish. Good ++

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
On tap at Cardinal. Misty golden body with a lasting small white head. Pollen, citrus and tropical fruits mix with pine and resin to invite me to taste the beer. Refreshing hop juice rich with fresh hop aromas. Medium bodied. Smooth to drink.

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
On tap at Cardinal’s big Brewers’ Night, Golden colour, moderate white head. Lovely aroma of tropical fruits and citrus. Lovely hops in the flavour too, but the malty base is a tad too sweet for my taste, with the typical American crystal malts / orange marmalade character. Still a fine beer, which I’d be happy to sample again.

Hazy amber. Quickly disappearing off-white head. Wonderful aroma of grape fruit and orange marmelade. Grape fruit in taste as well. Lots of taste as well as good drinkability. Bitter grape fruit seeds in aftertaste.

Strong in hops, but not too bitter. Had this right at Three Floyd’s pub. Loved it.

Fresh from a newly bottled batch this beer has wonderful citrus with an earthy quality. Dry finish which leaves hops on the pallate. Wonderful malt back bone. I've had bottled examples that didn't seem to hold up like the beer I had at the pub. The fresh bottle was wonderful. Straight up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
