3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Labeled "Modern IPA". Hazy orange, White head. Quite standard IPA appearance. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, hop nose. Very bitter. A bit too light body. Medium carbonation, suits this beer. Pine, minerals, grain, citrus, grapefruit flavour. Almost a bit too bitter for in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Fresh orange juice rides this highly effervescent IPA into a grassy, resinous finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam sits atop the misty amber-hued blond for the duration of the pint.
-Mouthfeel is rather dry and highly carbonated for the style.
-The bitterness and dryness combine for great drinkability.
-This is very much in the West Coast US style.

I think this one is a bit too bitter, unfortunately. The bitter taste and the aromas of the different american type of hops are great, but the aftertaste and giant load of bitterness takes too much place. Could have been great, but is just "good".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. A beer named "Kåååd" ("frisky", or, more accurately: "horny") is something one would imagine to either come out of Scotland (BrewDog) or some Danish brewery (like Amager). In either case, I like the tribute to human lust, here in connection with the spring season. Pours a clear dark golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is pine, grass, spruce, earthy leaves, apricot and hints of peaches and citric peel. Taste is peaches, grass, spruce, pine and hints of herbs, apricot and citric peel. Medium body and carbonation. A nice, classic American "in-your-face" IPA; no fuss, just straight up nice hop flavors and loads of drinkability. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Modern IPA från SB
Fin krona med tjockt skum.
Doftar härligt av malten och frisk grape.
Tycker den fina smaken dör rätt fort och bara går ut i beska som inte är så trevlig.
En ok IPA men ingen favorit.

Clear golden with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, bubblegum and pine on light malts. Taste is bitter with a touch of fruityness into pine and resinous bitterness. Balances out abit, but still finishes dry and bitter. Medium body, average carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Modern Ipa, flaska från Systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad med stort ljust skum som lämnar mycket rester på glaset. Fruktig doft med mycket grape. Citrus, grape med tydlig beska. Saknar lite kropp men annars är den riktigt bra!
