COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops- the best there is in this world! Well, almost. This is a hop driven beer. A beer where it is all about hops. But what kind of hops? We just couldn’t decide which, and used hops from all over the world; England, Slovenia, New Zealand, Czech Republic, USA, Germany and Australia. A total of 13 different types of hops. It does not get better than this!

Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin white head, decent amount of lacing. Light orange and grapefruit aromas with a bit of caramel. Taste is sweetish caramel, orange, pine, grassy, medium bitterness on the finish.

Burk från Kiwi, Volda. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, citrus, apelsin med toner av aprikos. Lagom sötma, rund och len, fruktig, lätt kropp, fin beska med toner av citrus.

Nose revolving around flowers and pine. Big big attack, heavy bubbles filling the mouth and a very strong / not pleasant greeny bitterness that stays for a long time. Medium body. This beer is pretty austere, except the nose. Really about boldness/bitterness and big bubbles, but totally missing flavors. It’s surprisingly solid for a 4.5% beer though, if that’s what you’re after.

I can sense a fine, albeit a little weak, aromas of orange peel and citrus from this Global Pale Ale. Global Pale Ale is brewed with a total of 13 different types of hops from around the world and this makes it unfortunately impossible to differentiate between. The taste is at first a fine light caramel malt which quickly goes over to hoppy taste where a true cascade of hops notes hits the taste buds. I tastes most orange peel and grapefruit, but also slightly sweet mandarin. IBU is 40 and it is equivalent to a moderate amount of alpha acid as well may cause the bitter taste in a pale ale depending on the type of hops. But with 13 different types of hops there is not really anything major theme in hops profile and it’s actually a little sorry for the beer has otherwise a very fine and delicate composition where a more uniform and cooperative hops had probably given it a greater flavor spectrum. But then i would not have been global anymore, so if Nøgne Ø’s intention has been to blend the world together in several hops, so they managed fine. I miss maybe just a hoppy identity and uniqueness becomes more visible.

Canned @ Kafe Derat. 33cl sample. The aroma has citrus, biscuit, oranges. Bit hazy, orange coloured beer with a medium head. The taste is light bitter and has citrus, light malts. Quite thin bodied even for its abv.

Hazy blond colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have a real mix of hop notes. Initially some mandarin and grapefruit. It gets a bit more pney and skunky in the finish.

Bottle. Very nice and bitter. Could be a little richer and round but it is very fruity.

From a can on a crowded train. Aroma is pineapple and mango. Taste leads with sweet tropical fruit with a moderately bitter finish. Drinkable but forgettable.
