330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, almost black with a beige head. Nice aroma with citric fruit, pine and some roasted malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, some pine, dark malt, light roasted and decent bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Quite nice and smooth, but a bit on the safer side and actually rather standard black IPA.

Black color, small beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and piney hops. Taste has similar notes - dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish and dry roasty aftertaste. Medium to full body and average carbonation. Nice black IPA, very enjoyable.

ERB92 (632) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014
Tropical fruits, coffee, chocolate and a hint of grass in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall a really nice BIPA, nice balancing between the two styles.

tfredvik (1728) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Deep brown body, almost black, with a light-brown head that stays finger thick (a very very small finger though) until my glass is empty. The before mentioned glass is decorated with foamy remnants when empty. Very strong aroma that is unusually hop driven for the style, with lots of tropical fruits, citrus and pine. The malty notes are far in the back. The flavour however, is much more balanced, with almost equal amounts of hops and malt. Especially the quite long aftertaste has lots of bitter coffee, but also initially and mid-palate there are a good amount of roasted notes, mainly chocolate. The hoppy part is tropical with lovely notes of orange. The taste is moderate to light sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Almost full body, an amazing creamy texture and soft to moderate carbonation. Very close to the perfect BIPA!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Tvedestrand]

ej (1233) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Pours black with a large, fluffy tanned head. Citrusy aroma with lemon juice and peel, some faint pine and roasted malts. Taste is very well balanced but with a decent, floral bitterness. Moderate roasty notes and maltiness blends well for a dry finish, and a lasting mellow bitterness. Feels creamy on the palate, medium-light bodied with close to high levels of co2. Very nice!
