Draught, as Torggata IPA, from the six-pack menu at Café Sara. Lasting white layer blanketing the glass. Cloudy dark golden body. Citrus hops on the nose linked with malty sweetness. Similar taste of citrus fruity flavours on a backbone of sweet malts. Bittersweet ending. Soft mouthfeel. A very sweet version of the style, so and so (Oslo 10.12.2013).

Very cloudy brown/gold.
Bittersweet proper IPA aroma, very inviting. A nice beer with malty body, some pine, spearmint and a dry tail. A session beer, not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Christianssand Brygghus. This is the second IPA batch made with a minor adjustment of the recipe. The hop profile is a bit changed and I actually prefer this version. Hazy deep golden body with a moderate sized off-white head. Really nice aroma of citric fruit, specially grapefruit, a bit of red berries as well, malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet malty, fruity as in aroma and light caramel with balanced bitterness. Super smooth with a sharp bitterness towards the aftertaste. Really quaffable.
