Gyllen farge med høyt luftig skum. Lukter godt med humle og også apelsin, sitron. Noe oljete i munnfølelse. Fruktig og samtdig bitter humlepreg i smak. Bitterheten kommer og blir sittende i.

morri (218) - NORWAY - JUL 15, 2014
500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. 1 finger fluffy off-white head. Semi-clear golden body with a high carbonation level. Aroma is mostly pine-like hops. Some malt sweetness to match. Quite deep in a way. Some leather and wood. Surprisingly light on the tongue for an 8,8 % double IPA. Taste is mostly sweet, although there is quite a bit of bitterness from the hops. All in all the taste is quite subtle based on what one would expect.

smmaaren (240) - NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
50cl bottle. Pours golden clear with ultra thin white head. Very hoppy aroma. And very bitter taste. Correction, my second glass had a bigger and longer lasting head. Good strong IPA from NZ.

Inbreak (2432) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
12.07.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is foresty, pine needles, moss, bark, caramel malts, leafs, hops, grass, alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet concentrated grassy, old leafs, soil, bark, pine needles, caramel malts, hops, grass, alcohol, weeds. Longlasting bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma with tropical fruits, peach, light piney notes and malts. Taste is well balanced but finishes on a bitter note. Pine, peach and apricots. Close to full bodied with medium co2.
