COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American and Bavarian craft come together with the finest Icelandic water to create the Viking version of the Pale Ale, where robust hoppiness meets smooth malty undertones. Cascade hops give it the American character, while Northern Brewer hops add just enough bitterness to make this Ale refreshingly Icelandic.

Bottled. Pours a clear, pale amber colour with a small off-white head that doesn’t last. Hops and pine dominate both on the nose and in the mouth, while the flavours are very dry, yet very well balanced and clean. A very good American-style IPA.

Not Bad, lacks aroma, appearance is nothing too special either. Honey and Wheaty notes, Bitterness from the Cascade Hops. Biscuit Undertones. Bought from Stirchley Wines.

Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at Our Black Heart, Camden on 23 Jun 2012. Poured a lightly hazy copper, with a dense white head. Aroma of peppery hop, toasted malt and herbs. Biscuity malt flavours, with pine-like hop bitterness and caramel. Finish was hop resin, toffee and grain.

mansquito (3551) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle ($3.50): Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is light pine, bunch of malts, some citrus. Taste is slightly bitter. Kind of malty. Not very complex, interesting, or good. Meh.

You get a nice orange flavor on the taste, with the malts hanging on the palate afterwards. Not a lot of complexity to this beer, really straight forward.

Sjohnh (246) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Amber colour, small white head. Not much aroma. Has the orange peel marmalade flavour of a barley wine or DIPA, but not really rounded off with a bitter finish. OK.

Będąc na Islandii byłem zaskoczony sporą liczbą piw rzemieślniczych, niestety na lotnisku przy powrocie dostępne były tylko piwa "koncernowe", które i tak w Polsce są chyba słabo dostępne o ile w ogóle. Mimo wszystko smak w porządku, poprawny, nie wyróżnia się szczególnie, ale było miło napić się czegoś dobrego daleko od domu.

djoeye (1839) - Tromsř, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2014
Diminishing off white head, deep golden clear beer. Mild aroma, pale malts, floral notes, mild dusty hops, almost perfume far away. Taste; caramel malts, gentle hops, yellow apple, leaves, moves towards earthy malts and herbal hops in finish. Slightly dry mouthfeel, normal body, suitable carbonation. Okay. [33cl brown btl, abv5.6% 13°, BB11AUG15, 5€, B@Vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsö]

cfrancis (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours dark copper with a small white wisp. Aroma is faint caramel, light grain and light earthy hop. Taste is more malt driven with grains and light earthy cascade hops.

Gregmcfish (8) - SCOTLAND - NOV 30, 2014 does not count
330ml bottle. Diminishing white head. Bronzed colour. Aroma is all malt. Good carbonation and the mouth feel is zingy on the tongue. Some hop taste but disappointing overall. Novelty value good, beer not great.

KoNrRiI (517) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
0.33 bottle. Clear, light amber color and a small, white head. Aroma of hops, fruits, delicate yeasts, grass, and wine gum. Taste is nicely balanced and features both hops and malts in equal measure with delicate, grassy bitterness as well as bready, caramel sweetness. Medium body, definitively a creamy almost velvety texture, and average carbonation. Finish is also symmetrical although unfortunately short. Overall the beer is good and has a delicate "northern" touch to it mostly imparted by the NB hops I think.
