500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of pine and citrus hops plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor about the same, really hoppy. Average to smooth texture. A good beer, but could be thicker and better balanced.

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.

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.

Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Gyldengul. Veldig høyt kritthvitt luftig skum. Litt lacing. Varer. Lettskyet. Kjempegod fruktig aroma. Plommer & fersken. Smaken ananas & plommer. Litt tørr etter hvert. Balansert.

ABS (441) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
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.

Aroma is hoppy with bitter with citrusy orange peel, and grapefruit, spruce, blackcurrant and elderberries, and some tropical whiffs, as well as a nice malty back with mango and apricots. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter with pine and resin, lemon peel and grapefruit, as well as some malty toffee, honey and some butterscotch. Lingering citrusy bitter finish with orange peel, lemon and grapefruit.

500ml bottle, Bangkok, wishbeer. Hazy golden color, banana aroma was appeared first, after that barley scent had came. Caramel note, too.
