Generous amount of selected hops balance out the malty backbone of this delicious golden India Pale Ale.

chinchill (2446) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Amber colored with coarse carbonation. Crystal clear with nice highlights. A rather thin head lasts longer than expected. Aroma is very promising, with clear notes of caramel malt, spicy hops, and citrus (hops). Thankfully, the taste largely follows this aroma, although the flavor from the hops is more resiny and pink grapefruit and less orange. There’s plenty of sweet malt here too, and the end result seems very much in line with the IBU=60 claimed by the brewer. Lingering hoppy aftertaste with some subtle malt hanging in there too. O - another well crafted IPA with ample hop flavor and aroma and a moderate hop hit, yet not too challenging to quaff. {Bottle from 8/2011 notes)

Sigmund (5422) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 355 ml bottle at local tasting. Golden colour, low white head. Sweetish aroma of stale orange marmalade and dust. Medium hopped flavour, on a medium sweet background of orange marmalade. Not bad, but a "thirteen in a douzen" IPA.

Holmen2 (1406) - NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Clear dark golden. Quickly diminishing head. American hops, marmelade and bitter grape fruit in aroma. Similar taste.

abemorsten (2987) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
355 ml bottle kindly shared by Holmen1. Clear golden body with a white film. Hay, fruits and flowers nose with pungent malts. Light acidic, watery sweet and a earthy bitterness.

gunnar (5874) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is malt oriented, light hoppy background. Taste is crisp and fresh hops, floral and fruity, high carbonated,dry mouthfeel, moreish and dry IPA.

Xenon (104) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 On tap. Had some interesting blends of hops but otherwise was a bit low on the Taste front. I like whatever hops they used very critusy but a ton on the floral or piney side. Malt character is hard to find but some nuttiness can be found. Decent but not good

Jorn69 (1294) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2014
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Kihoskh, Köpenhamn (34:-). Fruktig och humlig, maltig med karamelltoner, grapefrukt, ganska söt, medelbesk och medelfyllig. Avslutningen är torr, besk och humlig.

Lightrider (311) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a dark honey. Aroma is grasses and citrus. Taste is warm sweet bitter and deep, citrus notes over malt back. Finish is very clean. This is a great IPA

thumper28 (3) - - MAY 8, 2014 does not count
Had this on draft in a tall cold glass. Nice golden color small head. Smells like an IPA with a little less pine. Very smooth and easy to drink. On the sweeter side of the IPA spectrum but but I would definitely recommend it.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2014
A splendid IPA, best served quite cold in my opinion, as the hops get a bit sidestepped by the fairly intense sweetness it displays when warming up. As such, you are fooled to believe it is in fact stronger in ABV than it is.
