Dark and cloudy amber. Thick beige head with lots of citrussy aroma. Semi-thick with caramel and nutty initial flavors. Grassy notes like from fresh olive oil are present. Finishes with the hoppy goodness that is promised with a slight warmth from the 9.2%. Very good IPA.

Bottle while watching the Olympics. Not any head to speak of even though continuous bubbles. Citrusy green hop aroma. Texture is a bit sticky. Flavour is sweet and fruity with some strong tropical fruit flavors. Some sweetness retained in the finish with a great punch of bitter hops.

Bottle @ home from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours clear amber with a medium off white head. Lots of citrus notes to the nose. Medium sweetness, heavy bitterness with a long good bitter after taste. Nice

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured a nice hazy amber with mild lacing. Strong citrus aromas with some sweetness, malts are notable with a trailing spiciness and subtle woodyness. Flavors of strong bitter sweet hops, there is strong notes of grapefruit with malts following and then more hop flavors linger with a hint of wood and a minimal amount of warmth from the alcohol. The Finish: the malts come out a little more as it warms and the hops hold strong, there is a bright citrus fruityness to this beer... The 9.2% ABV is very sneaky!

Pours a deliciously malty brown colour. Aroma of fruit & alcohol. Taste of bitter bananas, with a powerful alcoholic fruit kick. Pungent malt after-taste.

Bottle, batch 221. Pours red amber, with a finger thick head. Aroma is a nice hoppy bitterness with notes of flowers and pine, and a solid malt backbone with toffee and bread. Full body, and soft to medium carbonation. Flavour is bitter hops with resin, grapefruit and orange peel, and a good roasted malt toffee. Long grapefruit bitterness in the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong sweet tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) aroma immediately as the bottle is opened, more hops detectable on the nose as it warms. Pours amber with a lasting off white head. Initially big sweet citrus, caramel and cream flavour moving to a long lasting, strong bitter pine, grass, and resin hop finisg. Medium body and carbonation. Bold but drinkable.
