Pale orange color with huge white head. Grassy hops, fruity: citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Taste is decently earthy, herbal as well as a bit fruity. Bitter dry finish. Easy to drink despite its complexity. A lot of flavours in there. Florya (2023) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2015

Bottle at Blå Rock Tromsø. Low but lasting white fluffy head. Hazy amber body. Hoppy fruity aroma and flavor with a relatively high carbonation and a long dry finish. sharkydodson (1614) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 14, 2015
the aroma of pine cones and spicy grasses with some hints of fruits... the taste of tropical fruits and pine needles with shades of grapefruit and some spices... bright hopping... dry and bitter aftertaste... CacheManyHose (725) - HONG KONG - JAN 14, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Very cloudy amber. Sudsy white head, big bubbles, thick foamy legs. Smells fruity (orange. apple, apricot), lightly spiced malt, musty slightly herbal hop. Taste is less juicy/fruity and more musty. Bitter, quick finish. Body is smooth, crisp, bitter, light spice. Good but I imagine I would rate this more highly if it were fresher (?).
Tasted again at the TAP Nøgne O food pairing for Matt's birthday. Had with the triple happiness cheese toastie. Huge architectural foamy head. Smells and tastes quite bitter, somewhat musty-grassy hay. Body is medium but with a lot of sessionable foaminess. Nice that this has so much hop for a session pale ale, but not that much else going on.

Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy - quite hazy - orange copper. Aroma is good - lots of mingling hop flavors: zesty citrus, lush mango and pineapple, pine, earthy spice. Taste is less exciting, but still good. Very smooth in palate and taste. Hoppiness is more subdued - a bit musty, resinous, some apple. Not too little flavor considering it's a relatively light beer but not as much as I was hoping for. Might not be that fresh though. Rammer (397) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 28, 2014
Fruit, citrus, is drunk easily. Very decent APA. Excellent hop bitterness on the finish. Cruzer (103) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Quite enjoyed this one, packed a lot of hops for only 4.5% ABV. Sweet citrus and malty aroma, with a flavour of strong bitter hops but with hints of grapefruit and orange. LomYst (880) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Citrus and strawberry.. great.. bitter yet sweet with quite some carbs and a long fruity hoppy finish

Blonde orangée, légèrement voilée. Grosse mousse blanche persistante, beaux lacings.
Aromatique très houblonnée, sur le pin... puis côté tropical, avec léger côté agrumes (plutôt orange). Maltage caramel décelable. Très portée sur l’houblon, mais nez très balancé avec les différents houblons.
En bouche plutôt fruitée on peut ressentir un côté herbeux et résineux qu’on a moins au nez. Une amertume s’affirmant d’entrée, mais restant très balancée tout le long. Forte sécheresse. Très bonne APA, avec une frontière de plus en plus fine avec les IPA. Et on aime ça!
