The beer is somewhat unclear which goes in yellow / orange color. The foam is white with medium to large bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. The aroma is fresh and fruity with noticeable hop. Hints of apricot, orange, mango and pine needles. A little lemon and flowers and the back comes a little pineapple. The flavor is noticeable humlig with clear bitterness that has little bitterness in the end. Hints of apricot, orange peel, spices, mango and pine needles. A little sweet notes of caramel and malt. The aftertaste is mostly dry and bitter. Medium rich body. Relatively low on carbonation. Something dry and sweet. fine freshness. Significant bitterness at the end.

A: A massive beige head, compact fills my glass. After a while the head settles and the liquid appears; deep amber. Nice lacings.

S: Bitter hops at first, but then there's semi-sweet caramell malt. But also nettles and citric notes from the floral hops. In the back; pineapple.

M: A nice mix between the bitter hops, the floral hops and the sweet caramell malts. Citric and piney.

M: Aftertaste stays for a while with mostly dry bitterness. Body is somewhat full while the rich carbonation is modest.

O: Nice, but maybe not edgy enough for the beer-nerds, but still true to the style without drowning it in American hops.
