COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India pale ale vart fyrst bryggja på midten av 1700-tallet i England. Det var eit alkoholsterkt og lyst øl med store mengder humle, for at det skulle overfarten til india. Til Vestkyst har vi henta inspirasjon frå både England og den amerikanske vestkysten, og brukt alt for mykje humle. Dette ølet høvet best til kraftige krydra mat, skarpe oster eller som oppstivar.

Humulus lupulus extravaganza!

Courtesy of Cunningham. Huuuuge thanx for this masterpiece!!!
Cool bottle design. A Hophead for Hopheads. Pours light amber coloredwith a very high, white and durable head. The nose has lots of amazing aroma hops, very floral and spicy, with lots of citrus. Starts very harmonious hoppy, much less bitter than expected. The background has some resinous notes, also pine woods are noticeable. The middle part is very harmonious hoppy, with a slightly sweet grain note, and some tropical fruits. Goes to a very hoppy, fruity finish with a lot of citrus and some resin / pinewood!

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
In short: An intense, yeasty, dirty and bitter copper IPA. Ok.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed fresh the day after purchase from a Norway Vinmonopolet store. Then tap at Elefanten Kafé, Bergen Norway
The look: Orange-copper hue topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose has fruity hops blending with fruity yeasty esters along with pastry-like sweetness. The aroma is far from clean and bright fresh fruits, it actually smells like a baked multi-fruit pie dropped in the dirt. Taste is rather dirty, crunchy earthy cereals, caramel, very yeasty, cooked fruits, earthy wooden notes like an old branch picked up from the forest floor, hops resin. Bitterness sensation is medium-high and there is an alcohol bite that joins in and creating a burning finish. My North-American palate is still not buddy-buddy with those bottle fermented yeasty European IPAs. To me this was just ok. Addendum: the tap version was a bit cleaner, less yeasty. I disagree with the mostly good ratings this beer is getting but knowing that people have different preferences in beer than you is not a big deal when you are a mature adult, therefore I’m outraged by these ratings and your mother has a stinky butthole.

omhper (19663) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2012
Bottled. Cloudy dark amber, rich head. Wonderful, concentrated aroma of lychee and kiwi fruits. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Pleasant seemless hop character - gooseberry, mango and lychee. Marked bitter finish. One of the best IPAs I’ve had in a good while.

Strilen (8) - FYLLINGSDALEN, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2012 does not count
Tan high long lasting foam, light brown appearance. A bit salty, but very fruity taste. Fruity aroma and long lasting bitter ending. Definitively the best beer made in Norway!

Starting on the negative side, this bear is a bit groggy to the eye. But as soon as you taste it, you’re glad that the bottle is not on the small side. One of the best pale ale’s I’ve tasted. Flowers in the nose, long lasting bitterness. Strong, and strongly recommended!
