Tap at Schouskjelleren, february 8th 2013. Light brown body, with a white head. Fruity aroma, grapefruit, orange and light cat pee, taste of caramel, light sweetness, tropical fruits and biscuit. Sharp and nice bitterness. Lasting hoppy aftertaste. Felt stupid when asking about the name, should have catched the word play on hops. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2013

Medium beige head. Hazy reddish amber body with strong carbonation. Resiny gooseberry catnip aroma with blackberry and oranges notes. Dry-sweetish orangey resiny taste with gooseberry and mango notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish papery blackberry aftertaste with orangey resiny dusty notes. Finish actually has a flavour similar to the aftertaste of durian flesh. A bit harsh, but still nice. Complex aroma. (0.4l draft at brewpub.)
