Bottle. Hazy orange colour. Tall, slightly offwhite head. Aroma is hops, lots of tropical fruit and some pine. Taste is more of the same. Tropical fruit is present all the way with a nice bitter finish. Easy to drink, but not simple. Love this one!

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 50 cl. bottle at Oslo bar. Very hoppy, citrus, elderberry aroma. Small, white head and quite on the still side based on natural fermentaion. Good IPA especially for the hop freaks with the very pregnant American hops (mix not revealed). For my taste a specialty with the extreme hops. But a nice specialty!

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Very bitter far back in the mouth and tongue. Lasts for a very long time, perhaps to long? To bitter with the rest the taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a bottle purchased at Gardermoen on a recent trip to Oslo. The colour is a cloudy orange-gold, with a tight off-white head. Excellent carbonation, and the aroma of hops hits you as soon as the bottle is opened. Wonderful hop flavours in the taste with a great citrus hit of lemon, grapefruit and Rose’s Lime Marmalade. Also nice hints of fresh pine needles. The genius of this beer is that the citrus notes are rather soft and sweet and not astringent, and blend into the other flavours really well. There is a long finish which includes malt, pine, lime and grassy herb tastes. A truly great IPA. Highly recommended.
