3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves acceptable lacing. Potent tropical hops aromas blend with floral notes and some nutty malt. Powerful grapefruit and pineapple hops up front lead into some toasty, slightly charry malt in the mid-palate, with more pineapple and a touch of mango coming into the finish. There is a lingering bitter aftertaste. This is a very nice DIPA, and only improved by the fact that I have just spent three months in Africa and the Middle East, where the beer is either terrible or totally non-existent!

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Golden. Some white head. Resin and grapefruit nose. Thick, oily body and low carbonation (true to style). Grapefruit, pine, resin, citrus and some malt aroma. Bitter. Only just an IIPA, wouldn’t be surprised if it was classified as an IPA. Good though.

Gylden farge med medium høyde på skummet. Aroma av appelsinskall, sitrus, grapefrukt, humle og vagt av malt. Smaken er grapefrukt, furu, appelsin og malt. Flust med humle, dette er en bitter sak! Bitterheten sitter i lenge i ettersmaken, sammen med smaken av appelsin. Medium konsistens.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange with minimal head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal spotty lacing. Nose is tropical fruit, low piney and floral hops, caramel malt. Taste leads with sweet caramel malt, giving way to a lingering hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body, slick, with low sustained carbonation.
This seems to be my third stale IPA of the evening. No buttered popcorn, but the hops in the nose were quite muted. The taste is pleasantly bitter, though. Not convinced it was all that fresh, but not bad.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hop galore. Both aroma and taste is one of well balanced ingridience. Love the pines and citrus which tignled my nose. Good strength ABV and the thirst quenching pilsner malts. A real treat from way down under.
Bottle, Grünerløkka Brygghus.
