Had on tap at Rogue brewery in Portland. Light brown color with small head. Piney hop aroma. Very good carbonation. Lots of hops, very bitter finish. This was very hoppy for a pale ale. I thought it was a triple IPA at first. Svesse (8776) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2009

Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, crystal malt and fresh, piney hops in the finish. A certain bitterness comes through the aroma hops as well.

Pours orange/amber with a very nicely packed off white head, looks great! Nose has a heap of resiny, grassy hops with citrus and caramel malt supporting. Palate translates well, caramel/toffee malt shows early (not overly sweet) before hops take charge, driving a long finish with med/high bitterness. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
Bottle at The Rover, Göteborg. Hazy orange color, lasting beige head. Fruity citrus aroma, grass, hay, apricot notes and some cream. Hoppy, grassy flavor, citrus and grass.
