Citrus and floral notes bombard the senses only to have herbal hops sucker punch you in the back. Decent amount of caramel sweetness to boost the Abv. Has that dry hopped profile, too. Good.

Lots of hop aroma and flavor. Alcohol and a bit of malt in the flavor as well. Excellent.

Bottle. An unclear, dark golden beer topped by a dense, two-finger thick off-white head. Nice lacings. The aroma is herbal and christmas tree-ish, with orange peel and some pale malts tending towards toffee. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with herbs, spruce notes, orange peel and some maltyness. Full body and a decent carbonation level. Lasting finish with too much herbal flavors. Except for that herbs, it’s sure a fine one. 140613

Bought from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. If you're after a big, bitter, thirst quenching IPA, this is what you need! Pours a hazy orange with a a finger of head. It has a quite complex aroma. Up front on the nose you get citrus, slight honey, syrup and a bit of spice and just heaps of others as it changes temperature. It has moderate carbonation with a medium body. Tastewise this is massively bitter! That's all I can really say! Loved this!!

Flaske 650ml delt med Rune og naboen på Nerstranda 4 Nov 11. Aprikosfarget. Lavt skum. Aroma av syrlig frukt. Smaken er mandler. Blir litt tørr etter hvert.

Smells "flowery" as my offsider put it. Very hop-forward and a bit in your face. I think I like it. At 8% I might love it after a few more..I'll probably love you as well.

650ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Shared with Finn and his neighbours next door. Pours a fair, off-white head to a cloudy apricot coloured body. Peach and grapefruit on the nose, hints of dough. Taste of dried and fresh citrus fruits leading to a mid-sweet fruity end. Soft in the mouth. Hidden alcohol. Easy to drink. Pretty nice (Tromsø 04.11.2014).

Wow. A rather different beer. I think it’s the Nelson hops that dominate, but whatever it is, this is absolutely pungent on the nose - a unfamiliar, damp and tropical scent - and that carries right through into the taste. Combined with the traditional attributes of a strong IPA it makes for a cracking drink, well worth a try.
