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

Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head and little to no lace. Aroma is citrus, oranges, tropical fruits, pine and some mild pale malts. Flavour is resin, citrus, oranges, grapefruit, tropical fruits, mango, pine, medium - high bitterness and mild pale malt presence. I really enjoyed this one!

Robe orangée. La mousse est bien formée et a une tenue respectable (5min). Goût de houblon très prononcé : herbal, pamplemousse, citron, citron vert, menthol. Arrière-goût fruité, frais et très agréable. Probablement la meilleure bière islandaise que j’ai jamais bu. Incontournable pour les amateurs d’IPA.

Flaska delad med @thaalcoholic, tack. Fast jag borde sova sen länge. Doftar och smakar som en perfekt ipa på fyllan. Smaskens

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Some lacings left as the off-white head sinks over a lightly hazy, golden body. The aroma is quite piney, with some resiny notes and apricot. Oranges. The flavor has a decent bitterness, malty sweetness in the back and quite a lot of citrusy, piney hops. Full to medium body, with a soft carbonation level. Lasting fruity finish. Sure a nice one, although a bit sweet and soft. 141018

Reimer96 (1383) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Pours a clear golden orange with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine, citrus, mango and sweet pale malts. Taste is pine, tropical fruits, guava, caramel malts and citrus oranges with a nice big balanced bitterness. Finishes is dry with a medium carbonation... However the bitterness is astringent and lasts into the finish too long... Otherwise a great ipa.

Draught at Micro Bar, Reykjavik
Clear light amber color. the aroma is a bit cereally and fruity. The mouthfeel is lean, dryish, with a quite good cereals flavor.
Balanced and nice.

Despite few breweries, Iceland produces some pretty good beers, and this IPA is no exception.
