COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Norwegian: Dette er en karakteristisk IPA frå den amerikanske vestkyststilen. Kjenneteikn ved dette ølet er ein fengjande humlearoma og ein solid bitterheit. IPA går godt med litt robust mat, men kan også nytast åleine.

English: This is an IPA in the style known from the American west coast.

FatPhil (8603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2014
Tap (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Nice hoppy aroma, decent IPA. Watery palate, carbonation detectable, not a positive component. Taste follows aroma. Boring, heading to APA mashiness and stickiness. Dull IPA, but niot actually bad.

dj (469) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
On tap at Beer Palace, Oslo. A copper colour with a medium sized head. A floral yeast aroma. Flavour has hops, yeast and grapefruit. A fair alcohol burn. This seems more like a trippel than an IPA, but it was very enjoyable nonetheless.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of nice floral citrus hops with some light floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by some nice floral notes with citrus hoppy notes and light sweet caramelized malt undertones. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Enjoyable but hops punch is a bit lacking which may be due to the trip this bottle had to make before getting to me.

Inbreak (1526) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Old rating rerated 07.02.2014, 0,5l bottle (11 days old) @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is fresh grassy, newly cut lawn, light malts, hops, leafs, sap, hints of pine needles and tiny hints of sulfur far back. Taste is slightly harsh grassy, old fallen leafs, sap, bark, harsh grass, light malts, soap, hops, soil, pine needles. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice enough, but it used to so much better in the earlier days of Ægir. A brief look at my friends old rating makes me conclude the same.

Hazy light amber w a big head. Lots of hop nose - mostly forest and a bit if citrus. Fresh, zesty hop character, piney bitterness and plenty of rich Munich-ish malts.
