Demanding flavorful and hoppy beers doesn’t make you crazy. Hop Sanatorium is a refreshing, dry and thirst quenching IPA. The aroma is dominated by tropical fruits with hints of citrus and resin to keep it interesting. A firm bitterness in the finish balanced by a soft malt backbone makes Hop Sanatorium a pure delight.

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours hazy dark golden with a small head. Aroma is hoppy orange peel, peach and some grapefruit. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter hops with grapefruit, orange peel pine and resin, and, obviously, a long bitter finish.

On tap at Øltorget Mathallen, november 9th 2013. Hazy dark orange body, big offwhite head. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel malt, grass. Taste of sweet caramel, balanced with a solid bitterness from the hops, and layers of peach and pineapple. Pleasant body, and a very well balanced aftertaste of caramel and grass/fruity hops.

På tapp @ Henriks, Bergen Gratulerer, ABC har laget en IPA slik en IPA skal være, Første glasset jeg fikk hadde litt lite skum, aromaen var fantastisk, Smaken likeså. Perfekt balanse mellom Bitterhet og malt, Dette var min første øl den kvelden og jeg kommer ikke til å begi meg inn på smaker og hint av ditt og datt, jeg leste avisen og nøt ølet, så bestilte jeg en til. Da var også skummet på plass og gjorde denne øl opplevelsen til en høydare. Bra Jobbet, anbefales.

On tap @ Henrik. A really cloudy deep orange one with a nice heavy lacing medium sized light beige top. The nose is quite delicate fruity with all sorts of things - some reminding me of having a peach in my mouth, others like smelling malting malts, others again kinda sweet almost a bit like a English caramel and there are even traces of what my nose registries as dried mango and apricots. Yeah, this I can easily like. The beer itself has a soft+ prickling carbonation level and it feels quite thick and oily on the mouth. The flavors are definitely well hopped. Well hopped indeed, with a really piney resinous taste. Unfortunately there is a soft chalky taste here also that’s dragging the whole impression a bit down. It’s also a bit, well, not directly astringent but it definitely drys my mouth a good bit. Ends in a near grassy well balanced finish and a really lasting aftertaste. Yeah, I can drink this again. No problem! 23.08.2013

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
Small glass, draught at Crowbar. Spotty lacing, not much head, apricot coloured body. Ripe fruity nose joined by a touch of spices. Spiced fruity flavours mixed with a solid impact of caramel malts. Strong bittersweet ending. Heavy to drink, a bit too heavy, I would say (Oslo 02.09.2013).
