I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

tfredvik (1641) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2016
Clear golden body with a white head. Fresh, hoppy and strong aroma of tropical fruits and grapefruit. Strong hoppy flavour of grapefruit, melon and modest tropical fruits. Light sweet and moderate to light bitter taste. Light to medium body, dry texture and rather lively carbonation. A refreshing brew!
[33 cl bottle, batch 678, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Coop Ullevål, Oslo]

Cunningham (6565) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2016
Not to different to the normal punk IPA. Quite malt dominated.
Hazed golden color with a fine white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Caramel malty, tropical, mild pine, biscuit and citric flavor.
[Bottle from Meny in Halden, Norway]

Nurmis (225) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours slightly clear amber with very small white head. Aroma is really fruity and slightly spicy. Carbonation could be better. Body is slightly watery. Not bad.

Bottle on board Fridtjofen 27.11.15. Hazy straw colour. Uneven off-white head and lacing. Aroma and taste of lemon and lime juice, peach, tropical fruits and succade. Slightly bitter tropical fruits in refreshing aftertaste. Good drinkability.

Nonshaugen (344) - Fetsund, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2015
33 cl bottle. Nice orange-yellow colour, thin white head, a few lazy bubbles from the bottom. Lovely aroma of fruits and citrusy hops, some grassy notes as well. Medium bitterness, dry and sticky mouthfeel. Flavours are mango, citrus and a hint of pine needles, quite pleasant. Excellent executed pale ale from Brew Dog.

Hallstein (419) - Skogn, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015
0,33 bottle from Coop Extra, Skogn, Norway - Pretty nice aroma with bright fruity mango and spicy pineapple. Reminds me of punk ipa, just milder. The flavor confirms this. Not as fruity on the flavor as the punk IPA. More breadyness and slight fruityness, but i’m impressed with what brewdog managed to do within the 4,7% constraints.
