ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13. A: Strong aromas of citrus, sweet herb and caramel. A signature American IPA aroma with a strong hop scent and the caramel malt. A: Pours a golden straw-yellow with a thin foamy head and some nice lacing. T: Follows the nose with a heavy malt base (biscuit, dough, caramel, and lightly toasted malts notes). The hops are understated with equal parts piney, citrusy, and earthy hop flavors. P: A refreshing, light body, medium carbonation mouth-feel. O: Nothing earth shattering, but solid all the way around.

Twisted the cap off and poured into a favorite glass. Golden pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Carbonic aroma mixed with malt. Not much hops in the nose. Grainy malt taste. Bread. Bitter finish. I don’t get much hops. At least as not as much as I would expect from the name.

12 fl Izumo bottle. Cloudy honey coir with white head that quickly disappears. Unusual aroma: hoppy but with sour gooseberry hints. Soft and meaty on the palate. Very bitter aftertaste with slight lemony sweetness. A nice IPA if a little lacking in finesae ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It had a deep golden color with good clarity and a nice average size head on top. The head had a nice creamy off white color and good retention. This made for some cool lacing as the slow fading cap made its way down the glass. There was a wonderful bright fruity hop character with solid notes of citrusy grapefruit rind with some leafy/spicy hops over milder sweet malt. Its firm medium body has solid hop bitterness and hop flavor notes mildly balanced buy sweet almost fruity maltiness. Mostly I get citrusy grapefruit like hops with a hint of apricot and pine as well as light white bready sweetness. Towards the finish there is a bit of raw grain from the malt with still brings some sweetness but hop bitterness holds on the tongue deeper into the slow lingering finish. Its carbonation keeps the texture lively but still smooth and pleasing.

Had on draft. Nice color, good imiti all taste, good aftertaste, a good IPA that has a bit of a malt taste. Not too bitter like some IPAs but enough that you know it's an IPA without having to reach for a water as some are too dry ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (2378) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Denne kom rett etter Baladin Open Riserva hos Odd Gunnar denne fine junikvleden, så det ble nok litt urettferdig. Lys&klar og med fin munnfylde, men humlebruken er forsiktigere enn antatt - eller er det en illusjon? Friskt pøseøl i det høyere %-segmentet.

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)
