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.

This could in fact be my favorite beer, and certainly my favorite IPA at the moment. I love everything about it from the size of the bottle to the label design, to the hoppy citrus aroma to the foggy orange appearance to the glorious fizzy mouthfeel to the dry and not-too-bitter ending. I hope that this summer I can get my hands on some.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a light golden beauty, with an inch of large, creamy white head. Smells like newly cut grass in hop heaven with sprinkled chocolate on top. The head quickly dissolves at the edges, leaving a cool "island" in the middle.

Oh my. There’s both caramel and fruit in this aroma, peaches and raisins, inside this beautiful thick, rich package. Oh my. I’m no expert, but this is true beauty! Fresh as a morning bath in the ocean, and comfortable as a late night by the fireplace. I don’t have much experience, but this is easily my favorite IPA so far! Wow! This aroma is full of parmesan cheese, grass, crunched nuts, mandarin oranges and happy thoughts. It feels really soft in your mouth, with the perfect amount of thickness and bitterness. Mmm. Oh yeah!

Drinking this beer is like laying in the sun, in a field, in the silence, a long way away, happily at peace.

Pepefromdale (10) - 6963 Dale i Sunnfjord, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2011
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.

fobar (241) - Søgne, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2010
Served from 500ml bottle and correct Ægir-glass. Orange colored body with off-white head. Nice malty taste with something undefined wild in the background. (Maybe some wild berries or something...?...) Traces of citrus as well. Well balanced. Long aftertaste.

Holmen2 (682) - NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
Amber in colour, not quite clear. Foamy off-white head. Wonderful floral aroma of citrus and grapefruit. More bitter taste, but balanced by malt sweetness and some caramel. Also orange marmalade and grapefruit seeds. Medium long and bitter aftertaste. Full body. A superbly balanced IPA.

Beer4000 (4399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2007
On tap. Golden orange body with a nice off-white head. Strong floral, citrus, grapefruit aroma. Flavor is dominated by American hop, grapefruit, peach, hay and malt. Very harmonic and typical American style IPA. Finish is long, hoppy and quite bitter. Together with Nøgne Ø this is definitively the best Norwegian IPA available.

Tim Webb (226) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2011
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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2012
Aroma of hay, barnyard, citrus and grapefruit. Long, bitter aftertaste. One of the better IPA’s i’ve tried. Have had this one many times before, and this one is’nt going to be the last! Splendid!

IPAgutten79 (459) - Skui, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Bottle 500ml @ home. (rerated 20. oct - 13) Hazy orange with medium head. Tropical fruits and sweet on the nose. Tastes smooth and is well balanced, but not particularly bitter. A well brewed IPA.

stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2011
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.
