This was a limited run that quickly gathered a cult following of depraved devotees. So much so that we had to start making it all year long. Big flavor. Makes other beers taste like tap water. Beer Geek Note: We started using Warrior hops in this brew in place of Chinook.

If you know your IPA’s you will appreciate this one. Does what most IPA’s only wish they could by giving you a big beautiful hops aroma and taste, but manages to have nice clean finish. Excellent balance. Big flavor yet highly drinkable. I don’t know how they did it. I think it might have made it’s way into my top three IPA’s. Maybe even my top ten beers.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2016
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ Haandfest 2015, courtesy of Cunningham. This is a nice golden looking one, a mild blurry to it and lots of off-white lacings in the glass. Smells kinda sweet and a little grainy. Mild fruity also in a way. Yeah, a nice sweetness in the taste also. Sweet pale malts and a little alco burn toward the finish. How strong is this? Thin green yeasty also. Not bad actually these few drops. 30.05.2015

12 ounce bottle from martinvanbeer. Thanks! The beer is a clear coppwry orange with a fluffy white head of foam. Strong head retention. The aroma has notes of citrus, pine, resin, sweet vanilla. Fairly dry and herbal bitterness. Medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, higher carbonation.

12 oz bottle. Poured into weizen glass.

Pours copper color. Decently carbonated. About two fingers tan head. Good retention, good lacing.

Aroma is super malty. Earthy and caramel. Maybe a touch of orange. Different than what I expected.

Taste is balanced, a little to the sweet side. There’s some hop bitterness, but they are late, they are spicy.

Palate is full bodied. Mostly sweet, a tad bitter. The spicy bitterness is really coming through on the finish. Quite sticky finish. Ten percent alcohol, where is it?

Overall, this really is a good DIPA. Different, but familiar. Oh yeah, I’d recommend this. I would buy it again.

Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is grainy, wet grain, worth, hay, grass, nuts, cereal, caramel, broth. Taste is harsh, weeds, hay, dried grain, harsh grass, bark. Medium bitterness, harsh watery mouthfeel. Meh!

Rune (11360) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2015
355ml bottle thanks to Cunningham for the treat. Clear golden-orange coloured body. Solid lacing. Film-type layer. Leafy hops on the nose. Caramel, herbs and leaves to the taste buds leading to bittersweet finish. Well bodied. Mostly integrated alcohol. Satisfying, rather unvaried though (Drammen 30.05.2015).

Bottle 355ml @ Haand Ølfestival 2015, Drammen
[Courtesy of Cunningham] Thank you very much Henrik for sharing this so I completed all US states. Pours slightly hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel, malty and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

tfredvik (1762) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2015
Clear medium amber body with a small off-white head. Strong aroma of caramel and overripe generic fruits. Sweet caramel in the moderate flavour as well, generic fruits and nutty hints. Moderate sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Mid-bodied, moderate carbonation. Feels old.
