chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2010
on tap at grunerlkka brygghus pours pale golden, white foamy head, nose is straight up soco and lime. Unmistakable. It is so intensely soco and lime I can not think of anything else. Taste is sort of fruitloopy breakfast cereal taste, it is definitely a one of a kind hop. Really intriguing but not one you can drink so much of. In my opinion. A bit flat in the mouthfeel and a bit of a yeasty bite.

gunnar (8881) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle courtesy of OleR-thanks. Pours hazy orange with a big off-white head. Aroma of pine and fruity hops, even some equalyptus/mint. Taste is on the bitter side, with a good amount of these nice NZ hops, fruity and resiny with a fizzy mouthfeel. Nice IPA

Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 Tap @ Baran, Bergen. Quite excited to try this actually, it pours a unclear orange body with a side-hanging white head. Nose is mostly pine, fruity orange and hops. Medium carbonation with hops and quite a lot of fruits in the mouth. Peppery, hopy and almost papery-bitter finish. Nice one from Haandbryggeriet!

Sigmund (7315) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle, kindly shared by gunnar, courtesy of OleR. ABV 6%. Cloudy orange colour, big white head. Strong aroma of piney and resinous hops, a hint of camphorwood, also tropical fruits / passion fruit - excellent! High level of carbonation. Hoppy and peppery flavour, fairly bitter aftertaste. New Zealand hops rule!
