3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Into a pint glass. Nice two fingers of foam head. Cloudy copper with lots of bubbles visible.
A soft grapefruit smell.
Bold pine and lemon taste. An almost crushing bitterness without let up.
Medium body and moderate carbonation.
A solid double IPA. From beginning to end it lets you know with its bitterness. A little more complex taste would be bonus.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost clear deep golden color with a off white head. Fruity, resin and hoppy aroma. A bit to fruity. Medium + body. A bit unbalanced. To much over on the sweet side. Tropical, malty, grapefruit hoppy and a bit resinous flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared by Cuningham. Finally finishing all US states. It pours a dense finger thick beige head over an almost clear dark golden body. It’s quite alcoholic on the nose, with malty sugar, resins and pine cones. It’s sweet and bitter in the mouth, full-bodied, warming and hoppy. Some peaches. Lasting quite bitter finish. A decent beer, but it lacks some balance and feels quite rough. 150530
