Pours clear yellow, with a big frothy head. Aroma is really hoppy, seems to be cascade hops by the aroma and taste. Taste is also really hoppy, the hops overwhelm pretty much everything else and it is quite bitter but still enjoyable. The hoppy taste lingers for a while afterwards. Hint of citrus. Average carbonation and medium bodied. First really decent IPA as far as i can tell produced in iceland.

Draft. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Mild grapefruit hop aromas. Taste follows suit. Not overly complex but palatable. Average body and mouthfeel.

tbonde (107) - DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
33cl bottle@Hilton Hotel Bar - Reykjavik. Pours clear amber with medium white head with just enough retention. Aroma is citrusy American hops with a litlle caramel malt. Nice hoppy flavour, again citrusy, spicy and moderately bitter. Did this beer the disfavour of having had the Double IPA the day before, which is not a fair comparison. Made the IPA seem to have a quite watery palate, but again that is compared to the creaminess of the DIPA. The IPA is a nicely balanced example of the species, not spectacular but certainly good - especially considering the reasonable ABV.

gunnar (6113) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma of fruity and resiny hops. Taste is moderate dry resiny hops, long dry finish, good.

mcberko (8443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle at 73 in Reykjavik, pours an opaque cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of juicy oranges and some faded piney hops. Flavour is very fruity, with lots of stone fruits, dry astringent piney hops, and some hop resins. Can’t tell if this is fresh or not. Unusual flavours but quite nice.

Bottle from bottle shop in reykjavik. Very clear golden ale with hearty white head. Aroma is strong with hops, grassy and citrus. Taste is very bitter, dry and a bit salty too. Nice medium body with a bit of oil and measured carbonation. Very powerful ipa, they’ve definitly not scrimped on the hops.
