12 fl. oz. bottle, at Olympen, Oslo. ABV is 6.5%. Deep golden colour with "cooling fog", moderate creamy head. Distinct aroma of American hops, also notes of toffee. Distinctly hoppy flavour too. Hints of Scotch orange marmalade and alcohol.

Murky orange amber colour with a frothy white head. Smells quite sweet malts and tea and fruity hops. Quite resinous and piney taste but medium on the mouthfeel with a dankness, medium carbonation. It's okay, quite nice.

The appearance had a very clear copper colored body with a huge three finger foamy white head, there is no carbonation seen rising. Some spider web lacing is seen around the sides of the glass. The smell had the malts up front, lemon and orange present themselves as the beer warms. The taste had a refreshing light crisp maltiness to it that I like as well as some pine presence comes out in the taste. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium with some bitter sharpness on the tongue, but a good sharpness. Overall, this is a good beer. I would say this is a mostly drinkable beer that I would definitely seek out again.

Pours a touch lighter than new penny copper with a medium head that leaves some lace. Nose is not terribly big, but a nice floral citrus blend vice the pine I was actually expecting. Taste has more grapefruit than anything and turns drier without a big malt backbone. Carbonation seems pretty high which leaves it crisp but not one to savor. Overall, a pretty good beer that is probably better on tap.

From notes taken 01/22/17:

A peachy orange-amber, semi-clear with chunky haze slowly sinking down. Capped with chunky, frothy, uniform, orange-tinted cream-colored head of great retention. Smells of tea and caramel at first, giving way to more metallic and resin-like notes. Extremely resinous palate, nearly piney and soapy but balanced out by malt tartness and more metallic, leathery, and dirt-like suggestions. Peppery and herbal retro-olfaction. Medium-bodied, spritzy to sloshy, nearly mouth-puckering.
