3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Shared with Stefan @Micro Bar, Reykjavik.
Hazy golden body with creamy layer on top. Beautiful lacing. Aroma: horse blanket, sour milk (kefir) and cloudberries. Tastes of grain, moss and hint of cloudberries and kefir in the finish. This reminds me of childhood in North-Norway, almost feeling a bit melancholic and definitely think this is an IPA with an Icelandic twist. Iceland and North-Norway have much in common!:-) 14.Jul.2012

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle best by January 2014. Murky / cloudy amber with an off-white head. Hop-forward gum, urinal cake, sap / resin, fruit cocktail / canned peaches. There’s a strong overripe / almost-spoiler pineapple aroma and flavor that’s ridiculously candy-like. Highly bitter with a Chinook-like tea leaf astringency and a lot of sugar. Rough and husky malt with similarly grating hop resin and fizzy carbonation. Neutral yeast presence. Could benefit from more attenuation but the hop character is in line with what people expect of American IPA.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Zvika’s place. Thanks a lot Nir A. for this bottle! Hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma of citric hops with notes of tropical fruits and pine, a bit weedy, with light maltiness. Hoppy flavor, rather dry, with light maltiness, mild tropical fruitiness and a bitter and slightly citric finish. Medium-bodied. Very nice and refreshing.
