3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Bottle conditioned, ABV is 6.5%. Deep golden colour to orange colour, big and lasting off-white head with an orangey hue. Nice aroma of American hops. The flavour has notes of orange marmalade and resin with a substantial hoppy bitterness, but it is not overdone. Medium sweetness. Grapefruity bitter and long aftertaste - and yngwie is right: there is actually a hint of camphor too!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Amundsen in Oslo. Lightly hazed rich orange colored body with a soft white head. Sweet mandarin orange and pine resin aroma, pretty much your typical American IPA with a lot of Centennial and Cascade tea / orange fruit character underneath the primary resin note. Medium to full body, chewy, sweet, highly bitter alpha acids. Well, they went for American IPA and I guess they got close. No apparent fermentation flaws, just out of balance for me. Would prefer it more dry, less chewy / full bodied and less resinous.

Fin start og god og fyldig humlesmak. Skummet eksisterer ikke, men kelneren var uvøren på hellinga. For øvrig ganske labert ølutvalg på Fru Hagen i Oslo...
