0,5l bottle. Batch 514. Pours hazy light amber with a small film. Leaves great lacing. The aromas reminds med of Nøgne Ø’s India Saison. Fanit funky aromas of Belgian yeast, light candi sugar and some hops. Flavors of yeast, light crystal malts and pine. This used to be my "go-to" IPA, before it was clean and rich with hop flavor and aromas. Now it reminds me of a belgian style beer.

500ml brown bottle. Batch 709. Quite hazy, golden shade. Creamy white cap. Nose has lemon and orange peel with grapefruit. Flavours of grapefruit hops, fairly clean malts, bit of caramel. Finishes with a long grapefruit note. Seems like it could be a bit brighter, but decent.

BrunoSanchez (91) - Fermo, ITALY - SEP 20, 2014
Bellissima american IPA colore ambrato con schiuma bianca persistente. Al naso profuma di luppolo resinoso e frutta tropicale. In bocca corpo medio e bel bilanciata con amarezza giusta. Nel palato riporta note tropicali fruttati. Persistenza retronasale media e finale rotondo. Si tratta di una buona IPA ma mi aspettavo di più.

neuromatt (1159) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
50 cL bottle from the Crowfoot Co-op liquor store in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange-amber with a moderate off-white head that remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big orange notes, along with flowers, pine, caramel malts, apricot and tropical fruit. The flavour is very well balanced between a moderate fruity sweetness with caramel on the one hand, and citrus, tropical fruit and soft piney hops on the other. The finish is long, with lingering soft hops. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy but slightly acidic texture and average carbonation. Overall, an excellent IPA with superb balance and a nice hop complexity. 2014-09-09

tmrmwel (960) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a creamy finger thick off white head. Aroma is sweet tropical hops with apricots and mango, perfume and rosebuds, as well as some roasted malts with toffee. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter with orange peel and grapefruit, some sweet hoppy notes of mango and honey and a touch of roasted malts with toffee thrown in for the balance. Fruity bitter finish with bitter grapefruit hoppiness.

Bosbouw (1270) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
Troebele oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, honing. Beetje citrus. Smaakt bitterzoet, hop, beetje kruidig. Tonen van orange en grapefruit. Goede bittere afdronk. Lekker.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 BOTTLE 50CL from Cunningham. Thanks, Henrik! Look: clear with sediment, big light beige frothy to creamy head. Aroma: intense aroma of tropical fruit, mango, pine-apple. Taste: tropical fruit, moderate piney bitterness with a bitter herbal note. Nothing fancy, just a well-made IPA.

A taster at the Trondheim Olavsfestivalen. Perhaps too bitter for me. Expect a bit more from this brewery.

Flaska från kompis. Passion, grape och citrus i doften. Mjuk och krämig munkänsla. Suverän balans mellan sötma och beska. Wow, en av sommarens största överraskningar.

Bottle from my brother at home. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of resinous pine, hoppy. Bittersweet finish. Very nice.
