Bottle. [thank you, yngwie]
Light hazy yellowish amber with a small, bubbly and creamy, off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, some pine, apples, oranges, grapefruit, lemon zest. Fine crispy malts bill in the back. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour has some mild cucumber notes, apples, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot. Fairly elegant fruity bitterness in the finish. Quite a nice IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Pours almost amber. Frothy, white head. Good smell and aroma of hops. Good bitterness. A bit to yeasty to truly compete with Nøgne Ø though.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is light orange, hazy with a frothy foam top.
Hops are dominant with a citrusy taste. Taste is medium sweet and
beautifully bitter. Full body, creamy, lively, bitter finish. This is a wonderful beer, one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had. I don’t know what could have made this better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic.
Pours a slightly unclear copper/orange colour with a large foamy head. Aroam of strong grassy hops, caramel and peach. Flavour of mild berries, sweet hops, caramel and pine needles with tropical fruits. Medium bodied with a dry, mild hoppy and fruity finish. Needs more hops, other than that just great.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on draught at the brewery and later in bottle from Vinmonopolet in Tromso. The excellence of this beer is in its relative lightness, which nonetheless allows massive flavours to come in but still appear balanced. That is some trick. Clever brewing. Not just a good NAEIPA (Norwegian American English India Pale Ale) but a great one.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a medium amber color, releasing a modestly hopped and fruity aroma, most notably citrus. Actually, the aroma is fantastic! This IPA is pretty well balanced – respectably bitter yet diverse in flavor that’s sweet in the front and bitter in the finish. Tastes is slightly less fantastic than the smell, but still excellent. It’s a must try for IPA lovers.
