4/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
S - I don't know what this smell is but I like it. I can't put my finger on it but it's earthy. I guess it's a sort of yeast smell intertwined with the hops. It's also sort of that higher alcohol smell.
Bitterness - I had Nogne O's pale ale last night and it left too bitter a taste in my mouth after each sip. And that one was only 40 IBU. Yet at 100 IBU, this one somehow gives me less of a bitter taste. It's like they accidentally swapped labels. So full credit to Nogne O for balance on this one.
T - Well I've gone and gotten a little too buzzy to do this part right. Should have done this part first. There's a booziness going on here, with a certain sweetness that gets sliced off by a bitterness that doesn't punish my tongue. I do get a little tingle at the end, but it's a friendly one.
Overall - When I first tried this I did not like bitter, hoppy beers. Yet even then I liked this one and would have ordered a second glass. That's saying something. This brewery is awesome. More like Nogne OHH amirite?

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Nice and classic Nogne bottle art. Pours a clear light orange color forming a huge and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Strong fruity and citrus notes. Grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Sweet pale grains. Flowery hops
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very citrus notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a strong and pleasant hops bitterness. Well hidden 8.5% ABV
M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, citrus and piny aftertaste
O: Great drinkability. Another Nogne classic
