Bottle. Pale gold with an off white foam. Aromas are caramel and cereal grain with mango. Lemon with grapefruit and lime peel. Mellow oranges with honey. Flavours are sweet honey and lemon with grain. Piney with bittersweet grapefruit. Smooth bodied with citrus rind pithiness. Dry on the finish. I liked it.

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Nok en flaske importert sjøveien av skibsrederen, og delt broderlig på rbhd-samling hos Odd Gunnar: fint skum etc men litt sur humlearoma. Ikke spesielt selv om de har brukt hvetemalt i tillegg til byggmalt, og den er "originally brewed in memory of George Dittrich - friend of the brewery, renowned local caracter and lover of hops", men "contains barley malt and wheat". No hops after all? Highly misleading information.

gunnar (6919) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus and marmelade. Taste is moderate bitter, light crisp bitter, sweet marmelade, not bad at all.

Sigmund (5991) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen2. ABV is 6.0%. Clear deep golden to orange colour, moderate to low white head. Nice and "typically English" aroma, toffee, caramel and sourish hops. Much the same elements in the flavour too, but less nice - seems a bit unbalanced. Drinkable, but far from the best IPA I’ve had.

Holmen2 (2265) - NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Clear golden, modest head. Persistently unfresh aroma, with liquorice, citrus and lemon grass. Decent hoppy taste.

Wonderfully bittersweet, really thrusty, dry, lovely light syrupy citrussy sweetness. This is excellent, really pleasant drinker. Great hoppiness, lovely. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
