Cunningham (4506) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2014
Perfect hazy golden color with a nice white head that last a long, time and ends up in a white layer. Ok lacing. Rich grapefruit hoppy when I opened the bottle. More citrus after a while and some tropical fruity notes. Smooth nice body. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. A bit oily texture. Fine grapefruity, mild caramel malty and a bit tropical fruity. I just says: WoW!

355 mL bottle. Pours pale copper with a thick white cap. Tangerine, grapefruit pith, cedar, earthy, floral hop tones, back by gentle pale biscuity malt. Dry and distinctly bitter, but surprisingly smooth, lasts long on the palate. Somehow light bodied with above average carbonation. Painfully easy drinking. Gift from a friend, too bad itís 3 months old, would love a fresh one.

Bottle from Kihoskh shared with esp0r, september 5th 2014. Semihazy copper body with a low white head. Aroma of grain, pine and earthy hops. Taste is bready, strong bitterness, faint hops, harsh bitter finish. Kind of a letdown this one, as Iíd looked forward to having it, and itís a big disappointment. No date on the bottle, I can only guess itís taken a long time shipping this to denmark and getting really old. At least I hope so, if not itís way overhyped.

Canít believe I havenít reviewed this one yet. Iíve had it on draft tons of times, tons of bottles. Excellent IPA. Pretty much the standard in my opinion. 60 min is nearly perfect. Floral aroma, citrus, roasty malt. Taste is super clean, bitter, and has a nice citrus pop. Really easy to drink, really refreshing. Nothing bad to say about 60 min itís fantastic.

Unusually well balanced IPA with a subdued (for the style) citrus and pine hoppiness. Mild but long bitterness in finish that rounds off nicely.
