3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from Alko Arkadia. BBE 04/01/15. Hazy amber, thick white head. Aroma is slightly vinous, bready malty and tropical fruitiness. Flavor has piney hops, grass, malt and alcohol. Ok balance, but alcohol is coming through too much.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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:

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

0,5 l bottle from vinmonopolet Sola. 1 finger white foam. Matt goulden color. Nose is some maltyness, caramell, alot of shed and nice floral notes.
Nice balance between sweetsness and bitterness. Some overmature fruit and grassy notes. Very nice hidden alcohol. A lovely double IPA

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.
