Lots of hops shine through, slight sweetness as well. Aroma is mostly hops, some yeast as well I think (fluorine). Colour is a hazy dark amber or copper, head is off-white. (Bottle) Skinnyviking (9669) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2011
Courtesy of the Norwegian witch doctor Rune. Bless him. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing head. Not really clear, but almost, amber body. Lovely aroma of apple pear apricot and lime with a sweet hint. Flavor is also fruit dominated with a mild and yet pleasant hops bitterness. Low carbonation, long aftertaste. Alchol level seems just right. Very well balance and definately a pleasant surprise. cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle, hazy copper with large foam, hops, florals, pine, citrus. Medium body, lovely lacing, bitter. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2011
Unclear orange of color with an orange head. An aroma of hops, grapefruit, fresh and sweet notes. A flavor of malt, hops and grapefruit - a very nice beer. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Medium-sized offwhite head, good retention, settling as a thick film with ’bubble islands’ - quite good-looking. Colour is slightly hazy amber. Aroma of hops, pine, caramel, flowers, soap. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste is well-balanced with a powerful bitterness, discreet sweetness, and fairly astringent finish. Very nice, although the floral aspect is verging on being too dominant.

Slightly hazy, copper body with a large, off-white head that lasts and lasts. Excellent lacing: large patches of foam cling to the glass. Wonderful fruity aroma with grapefruit, peach, hints of sweet pineapple and perfume. Also a malty component, with sweet caramel notes. The taste has surprisingly little sweetness, but instead there’s a lovely medium bitterness that lasts as long as the head. Very fruity flavours that follow the aroma. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. A very nice APA! And very interesting for a newcomer to taste a single hop beer, I need more of those! garza (574) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 25, 2011
[50 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål Stadion, Oslo]
Pours hazy orange with frothy white foam. Hops, yeast, spices and pine notes on the aroma with some fruity notes. Light to medium bitterness, grainy and hopy flavour. Refreshing. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a short dry finish. Ok. esp0r (2928) - NORWAY - SEP 15, 2011

Deep copper hazy red, thick beautyful cream colored head. Smells of ripe fruits, some citric acids and citrus zests. Very clean aromas. Taste has nice distinct malt body with absolutely no sweetness at all. Very interesting. Feel is dry and a bit sticky. Finish has a very nice hop bitterness. Citrus zests and bitter herbs apply here. The herbal parts lasts for minutes. Interesting single hop pale ale.
Thick and creamy foam with a copper body. Aroma of pine needle, herbs, oranges and some caramel. Nice and harmonized hoppyness. Soft mouthfeel. Very good ale! Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a hazy orange body with lots of microscopic sediments and a big white head. Aromas of citrus, fruity hops, cactus, mild wheat and some hints of bread. Lively carbonation, citrus, round bitterness and nice and crisp mouthfeeling. Some sugar/caramel, a bit light bodied and hints of alcohol. Mildly bitter finish. A really nice and easy drikable brev from our friends @ Ægir.
