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!

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a small white frothy head that dissipated to the edges, while the body is a cloudy, sediment-filled orange body. Nose of composted blood oranges, somewhat musky and hosting an Irish Red malt background. Flavour is rather tart, front of marmalade, citrus rind and a dirty finish. There’s a ton of flavour packed into this 4.5% beer. Good. Purchased at Metro Liquors in Saanich for ~$7.60 per bottle.

Schłodzone piwo, a mimo to wystąpił gushing, piwo przegazowane, trzeba było odczekiwać na zejście piany w szkle. Aromat chmielowy bogaty, ale układający się w całość, smak z cytrusowy, owoce egzotyczne, wyraźna goryczka.

sebletitje (9553) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Boutielle 50cl, batch#1148, BB 21/03/2015, bottled 21/03/2014. Light gusher. Dorée, col épais crémeux beige très dense et continuant de s’écouler une fois la bouteille ouverte. Arôme offre un agréable bouquet fruité tirant pas mal sur l’exotique et des pointes e citronnelle. Palais est délicieux avec un savant mariage des houblons, en principe des notes tropicales mais une bonne balance des houblons noble et plus neutre - pelure citron. Amertume fine et fleurie avec un fini entre mangue et goyave. Le caractère malté reste présent mais en retrait pour donner sa place aux houblons.

aleksander9 (1416) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014
Unclear orange with fluffy tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit, strawberry jam, citrus, caramel and floral. Very complex aroma for this ABV. Palate is round and fruity. Aftertaste is dry, fruity, grassy, dank and lingering fresh hop bitterness. Overall: Excellent. Probably the best supermarket beer in Norway. Very impressive considering the amount of different hops. Nøgne Ø clearly knows how to create great beers.

Bottle. Opaque, deep golden color, lasting white head. Dry, slightly metallic hoppy aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavor with resin and grapefruit. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Bit too hoppy for my taste, but a quality product considering the ABV.
