Fra håndpumpe på Naboen i Bergen: flott skum som varer, fruktig og tydelig humlearoma. Lite karbonert men allikevel god munnfylde. Smakfull og lettdrikkelig.

Tap @ Haand festival.
Pour hazy orange, with a small white head.
Aroma is big and hoppy, of pine, tropical fruits, weed, grass, caramel.
Taste is pretty darn bitter, with some slightly sweet notes as well. Semi-full body, with a slight fizzy carb.... Pretty darn bitter I say...

Bottle in our quirky Oslo hotel. Cloudy brown beer, good pale tan head. Softish palate, a little dry. Turns crisper. Fresh dry malt with unsweet caramel provides a backbone for fresh hop attack! Grassy fresh bitterness. Minerally dry finish. Comes across as a light barleywine. The label made me smile.

On tap. Tilt. Plummy looks. Pours a white head, kind of foamy. Aroma of yeast and fruits, some say apple. Fruit and yeast as well flavourly. Lovely!

Bottle. Pours a very hazy amber colour with a small off-white head. The aroma is dominated by grassy and floral hops with a lovely touch of grapefruit. Grassy hops also in the flavour along with some wood and barley. A dry ending with a balanced heavy bitternes that lasts, and slick mouthfeel. A really nice IPA with a round hoppy touch through and through.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy, ruddy brown with a persistent head. Refreshing grapefruity hop nose. Intense hop bitterness in the mouth, but with solid malty caramel as a backdrop. A robust IPA it is.

Very hazy dark amber with a big frothy head that stays around and leaves nice tracings on the sides of the glass. Big aroma of tropical fruits. Taste is superb with a nice balance between bitter and sweet. A really nice IPA that I could drink all summer long. Too bad that I can’t get it in Sweden :(
