Dry-sweet malty caramelly taste with strawy salty resiny notes. Mid-to-full body. Chewy, soft, fluffy mouthfeel. Dryish raisiny biscuit aftertaste with resiny strawy tropical fruit notes.

tfredvik (1751) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a medium amber to orange body that is cloudy and topped by a bit below average-sized, egg-white, somewhat creamy head. It reduces to a fully lasting layer with some big bubbles floating around and other big bubbles are gathering along the edge of the glass, where a good amount of lacing is left. The aroma is very strong, sweet and fruity. I’ve come to appreciate overripe tropical fruity notes, but this one is almost a bit over the top: the overripe notes are simply too overripe, they are dangerously close to rotten (without completely getting that far). Also sweet orange and grapefruit in the back. The taste is moderate sweet and the rather long finish is heavy bitter. The flavours are strong and tropical fruity (especially sweet peaches), luckily a tad less overripe than the aroma. Also orange and resin. The body is close to full, the texture is oily and the carbonation is soft. A very good DIPA, but not a new favourite.
[33 cl bottle, batch #400, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy dark-hued orange body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is an assertive and nice plethora of American hop aromas: citrus, pine, pineapple, peaches, rose water, wet grass and hints of alcohol, resin and licorice in the back. As inviting as it is classic. Taste is strong resinous grapefruit and peach notes, resin, pine, grapefruit and hints of alcohol, herbal licorice, dry grass and rose water. Medium to full body, soft to medium carbonation. Long resinous bitter aftertaste. Very pleasant, and the slightly low ABV compared to many comparable DIPAs makes the sting come from hops instead of the booze. Very enjoyable double IPA from Fanø.

ej (1245) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange with a slightly tanned, creamy head leaving plenty of lacings. Aroma is heavy caramel-malty, some pine and resin and mild herbal notes. Taste is malty caramel at first, then into light harsh resin-ish bitterness. Rounds of rather balanced, but with a slight twang of alcohol. Medium carbonation and medium to full bodied.

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is sweet fruity, light malts, hops, dried fruits, caramel, leafs, citrus peel, dough, grass. Taste is slightly dry grassy, light malts, pine needles, bark, leafs, grass, cardboard, citrus peel. Longlasting harsh bitterness. Not my kind of beer!

visionthing (4792) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2013
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours slightly hazy amber with a nice, off-white head. Hoppy and malty aroma with pine, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus and some spicy notes. Hints of tutti frutti after a while. Medium sweet with caramel malty and nice hoppy flavours and a quite solid bitter finish with notes of pine and grapefruit. Medium+ body with fairly average carbonation. Bitter and fairly long aftertaste. Quite delicious!
