gunnar (5679) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear deep golden with a big, nice looking snow white creamy head. Aroma is light sweet marmelade with mango and lots of tropical fruits. Taste is light sweet pale malts, marmelade and apricot, before the hops kick in with tropical fruits, fresh juicy orange, with a lingering bitter herbal finish, lovely from start till end.

tfredvik (1205) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Crystal clear, medium golden body with a fully lasting off-white head, good lacing. Very strong, hoppy and sweet aroma of overripe tropical fruits, orange, caramel, and malt candy. Strong flavour of that follows the aroma. Stinging (but quite pleasant) long-lasting heavy bitter finish with orange peel, followed by sweet caramel in the late aftertaste. Almost full-bodied, quite oily texture, moderate carbonation and moderate dry finish. Yummy!
[50 cl bottle, batch 1758, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Tvedestrand]

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is perfumy floral notes, citrus peel, kiwi, earthy leafy hop tones, hints of syrup and cat pee. Taste is cacti, lime, grass, kiwi, herbal tomato plant tones and hints of pine and citric peel. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty straight up DIPA from down under, not bad at all.

Gylden brun klar med høyt beige skum som ligger. Fruktig bitter lukt av humle og sitrus samt noe nøttelukt. Myr smak. Godt balansert mellom det humlebitter og den søte sitrusen. Bitterheten overtar i avslutningen og sitter godt og lenge.
