steinar (54) - rvk, - FEB 25, 2011
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.

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle, at Laundromat Cafe, and a couple other spots along the journey. Medium orange body, off white head. Fresh hoppy aroma, mango skin and conifer. Hoppy palate, grapefruit, light pine, with underlying light caramel malts. Long bitter finish. Solid, tasty. I’m liking Borg beers consistently.

Berard (209) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours caramel in color with thin white head that dissipates. Hoppy evergreen aroma over mild carbonation. Decent hop and resin flavors with reasonable complexity. Easily the best non-American ipa I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SaintMatty (4679) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2014
330ml Bottle (Bunk Bar, Reykjavik) - Amber with a foamy head. Grapefruit, peach, apricot and gooseberries in the aroma. Hoppy and bitter yet nicely balanced taste with gooseberries, grapefruit and peach standing out.

ajofena (45) - SPAIN - JAN 11, 2014
Em botella. Color amarillo dorado y limpio. Cabeza de espuma blanca y poco duradera En nariz ofrece frutas tropicales, lupulo, mango. Em boca se acentúa el lúpulo, pero el toque tropical sigue ahí. Final refrescante y lupulizado. Muy redonda. Cuerpo medio, muy bebible. Ipa de manual.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at KEF airport (BB Apr 2014). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin, apricot), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. American styled all the way, but still offers some cookie-ish malt and a little apricot tropical-ness, so it’s ok.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013
A clear gold American-hopped Pale Ale with pine / resin notes and strong tropical fruit gum. Lively and fresh smelling, grassy, resinous and "green", this would go over well in the United States. Medium-light body, light sweetness, high bitterness, some nuttiness and sour grain character becomes more apparent in the bitter-sweet onion and garlic hop acid finish, where a coating of Zebra Stripe gum hop oil and laundry soap remain. From bottle best by date April 2014 from Vinmonopolet in Reykjavik.

jonas (5469) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, kindly provided by the brewer, thanks Guđmundur! Pours a hazy orange-golden with off-white lace. Classic flower, peach and kumquat hoppiness. Good chewy grain base, sparkly mouthfeel. Plenty of fruity hop aromatics, apricot, kiwi, apples, light metallic bitterness, grassy finish. Nicely balanced IPA.
