Vignale (3997) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011
Ljust bärnstensfärgad, medelstort skum, lite dimmig vätska. Frisk doft av grape och tallbarr. Lätt kropp, tydlig grapekaraktär med relativt stor beska. Frisk, stram, fruktig. Som att äta grape minus sötman. Perfekt till husmanskost om man ha något annat än en besk pilsner. Roligt att dricka en single hop på Chinook. anders37 (26987) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2011

Bottled 330ml (BB 05/2011)Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - APR 30, 2011
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Citrus, fresh hay aroma. Light to medium bodied. Grapefruity, sweetish fruity malty flavor. Lingering grapefruity bitterness. Simple.
Clear golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruity hoppy. Flavor is bitter grapefruit a little off balance lacking some malty body. The Chinookhops gets i little to harsh and bitter in this one.

330ml bottle - shared by SaintMatty - thanks! Finland vs. Sweden single-hop face-off!Kavu (5119) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2011
6 Massively hoppy, but this is just pure perfumed soap or air-freshener. No offense to pooftahs, but the aroma is just plain gay.
3 Pale orange, persisastent pale tight head.
7 Caramelly, spicy, and nettly retronasals. Lovely sweet malts, great combination of bitingly bitter and fruity hops.
4 Sweet smoothness, pleasant carbonation. Finish initially sweet and biscuity, but tons of of bitingly bitter hops, some grapefruitiness, but not exclusively that. Almost metallic finish, but not in a bad way, not a metallic taste, a ’biting on foil with fillings’ palate.
14 Slightly emasculated due to being filtered, but full, and lovely. Get the perfume out of the aroma, and this would be a super winner. Oppigords rock; at 4.9% this is just great.
Pours clear golden with a high head. Aroma is fruits and malts. Flavor is very bitter with very little malts and mostly just the hops. Pretty good. Svesse (8767) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2011
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) Golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of lemon, orange peel and grassy, floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus peel, apricots, grapefruit and grassy, floral hops in a finish with a tasty, well balanced bitterness. Medium body, fairly dry. Very tasty and refreshing beer in excellent balance. daje (4535) - NORWAY - APR 13, 2011
Bottle. Pale golden with big white head. Good aroma with citrus, hops and caramel. Refreshing taste of orange and grapefruit, malt and grass. Very good bitterness and it all makes a good refreshing beer Jonte (1496) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy citrus, tropical fruit, pine and grass aroma and flavor. Not much malt going on here. Dry and bitter, but still fresh and easy drinking.
