ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle @ Gaasa, Oslo. At last! Grünerløkka has its own hipster ale - I’ve been waiting for this one a while. :-) Pours a hazy orange body with a medium white head. Nose is bitter pine and grapefruit, hints of skunky herbs and citric peel. Taste is bitter citric peel, grainy honey tones in the back and a stingy hop finish. Dry, with a light body. Pretty straightforward and drinkable. But is it hip enough? Only the hipsters can tell, but I’m guessing since hipsters dread being categorized in the first place they’ll probably frown at this. :-P

Rune (7948) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
330ml bottle at Olympen. Rocky white head, good lacing. Unclear golden body. Floral and grassy to the nose. Blended flavour of fresh tropical fruits and mid-sweet malts. Protracted dry, bittersweet finale. Refreshing (Oslo, 15.09.2012).

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, enormous white head. Smells of dust, citrus, malts and grass. Moderate sweet, quite dry and dusty, some malts. Medium bitter, resins and grass. Very nice pale ale, nice aromas, a bit outside the standard box, easy drinkable, dry, not too bitter. This could easily be my everyday beer

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2012
On tap at Gaasa, Oslo. Hazy gold, creamy head, nice lacing. Fruity, green herbal hops, very refreshing. Long bitter tail.

Sigmund (5007) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2012
330 ml bottle. ABV is 5.5%. Possibly identical with Evil Twin Istedgade Hipster Ale? Cloudy golden colour, large white head. Strong aroma of fruity / citrussy and resinous American hops, catty hints. The flavour is very hoppy throughout, with grapefruity and resinous notes. The malts in the background are not too sweet. Bitter finish.

Bottle at Schouskjelleren, august 11th 2012. Hazy golden, large white head. Aroma is very hoppy with citrus fruits, and malts. Taste is pretty much same as aroma, with a short dry bitter finish.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2012
Medium white head. Hazy deep yellow body. Resiny mealy aroma with citric funky notes. Dryish mealy resiny orangey taste with funky earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, mealy mouthfeel. Dry resiny wooden orangey aftertaste with earthy funky grassy notes, even touches of dandelion. Very nice. Drinkable, and with some real character. (0.4l draft x 3, Olympen, Oslo.)

On tap at Olympen. Cloudy, pale golden with a creamy offwhite head. Intense fruity hop nose. Very bitter, no compromise beer.

GJF (1241) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle at Lincoln WIne Bar. Pale orange, white head. A nice sour quality to it, but it seems a bit thin for what this beer is.
