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?

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a light tan head. In the aroma, a mix of pine and citrus hops. In the taste, a small citrus rind and some small pine notes of hops. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus in the aftertaste. Nice malt presence, with some nice mellow hops all the way through.

Brewed July 3, 2012. Not exactly fresh, but apparently it has a two-year out BB date!

Beer pours a cloudy caramel-orange colour, with a small to medium sized white head.

Smell is very nice, and pungent. Bright fruits, a mixture of tropical and citrus, with some caramel malt and a biscuit scent. Also a notable pine scent.

Taste is not as nice as the nose. Malt is strong, a bunch of caramel and biscuit. Pine and some difficult to differentiate fruit flavours- again a mix of tropical and citrus. Relatively bitter.

Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Oily.

Overall, pretty good. Very nice nose, flavour is nice but not great. Probably would not get it again but happy to have it this time.
