3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6.0%. Mild hoppy aroma, more like mango than lemon peel or pine needles. Cloudy orange colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour has a good hoppiness, but once again not that piney. There is a refreshing pine note, but no more than the soft fruit notes. Medium to high bitterness, very clean.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a big cloudy off-white head. Stunning looks. The aroma does not disappoint, either: mild pine, peaches, rose water and hints of pale malts, earthy leaves and citrus in a very elegant mix. Taste is mild piney tones, earthy leaves, peaches and citric peel with hints of grapefruit and dry grass. Bitter finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Although this is definitely bordering on IPA territory, both hop-wise and regarding the ABV, this is a refreshing and powerful APA from To Øl.
