COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Det frekke ekornet Ratatosk sprang opp og ned i treet Yggdrasil med fornærmingar mellom ormen ved røtene og ørna i toppen. Når ein vanleg dose humle ikkje er heilt nok, har vi dette frekke ølet å tilby: solid bitterheit som balanserar med lett fyldig maltsødme og kraftig humlearoma og smak.

mjs (5364) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2013
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BBE 04.01.15, from Alko Arkadia, 20130507) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, long lasting and almost white. Aroma had exotic fruits, peach and malts. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, sweetness, malts and btterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, sweet and bitter. Alcohol was a bit too strongly present but otherwise pretty tasty double IPA:

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - APR 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Bottle traded with Cunningham. Tropical hops juice in abundance. Mango, ripe pineapple and grapefruit. If not for some shy piney hints, one could fathom the Nordic tree Yggdrasil the name of the beer alludes to, was in reality a palm tree in the tropics. Thick, oily, alcoholic and warming mouthfeel. Full body with some residual sugars in the flavour, otherwise this beer is naught but hops flavour-wise. The grapefruity bitterness is not too strong but this is just fine the way it is. What a massively tropical hop bomb! Great!

Lys gyllen IPA som smaker bra av citrusfrukter. Bra carbonering og frisk bitter ettersmak.

Lyst bittert øl fullt av sitrus smak. Godt øl som nok faller bedre i smak hos ipa elskere en hos meg.

thebeertourist (5123) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange colour. Caramel and deliciously fresh fruity hop aroma. Nice citrussy hop flavours, good bitterness, great complex hop flavours. Probably one of the very best Norwegian IPAs.

garza (572) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - AUG 8, 2012
Pours a muddy copper colour with timid white head. Fresh fruty and full of hops aroma with notes of dry prunes some caramel and honey. Especially refreshing ale despite the high alcohol level. Frutal round flavor that goes into the palate and gets like sensing some caramel at the end of the tongue. Medium sweetness, medium to high bitterness. full body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a spiced and caramel like medium bitter finsh. Good one.
