visionthing (3055) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2015
On tap at Crowbar, Oslo. Slightly hazy deep amber with a rather small, off-white head. Hoppy and slightly caramelly aroma with piney notes, mild citrus, malt, caramel and hints of spices. Feels too sweet and caramelly at first, but feel quite balanced in the end. Certainly a good deal of sweetness, but also a nice bitterness. Quite flavourful, but well balanced. Decent stuff!

orange_3084 (125) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2014
Copper colour with decent clarity and low white head. Fairly faint hop aroma of grapefruit and passionfruit, as well as a slightly raisiny caramel malt character. Taste is moderate-highly bitter with decent malt balance as well as a slightly flowery/spicy hop taste which lingers in the finish.

Rune (8584) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Small glass, draught at Crowbar & Bryggeri. One big patch at the surface. Body colour is cloudy, amber-red, I would say. Dotted spots to the glass. Inviting aromas of red oranges, half-dry. Sappy taste of passion fruits, red orange and subdued malty sweetness. Fruit hoppy finish. Very smooth and fresh on the swallow. Nice and moreish (Oslo 18.08.2014).

daje (2609) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2014
On tap at Crowbar, august 23rd 2014. Amber body with a short white head. Malty aroma with pine and grass, taste of caramel, grass, a weak hop fruitiness, strong bitterness in finish along with hints of cabbage. Not my kind of an ipa, though I suspect the keg is a lot older than what you’d expect an ipa to be at a place like Crowbar and the beer has faded.

KnutAlbert (6282) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2014
On tap at Crowbar, Oslo. Rich aroma, very inviting. Flowers, herbs, well balanced malt/hops, but the hops are perhaps a bit tired. A long journey.

Inbreak (2490) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
13.08.2014, tap @ Crowbar:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grassy, caramel malts, pine needles, toffee, grass, leafs, hops, sap, bark, rubber. Taste is dry grassy, pine needles, bark, rubber, old leafs, harsh hops, caramel malts, grass, soap. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry grassy mouthfeel. Fair enough.

mkel07 (3824) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2014
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique June 2014. One of the more flavoursome beers from Kooinda. Big dose of hops kills off most other aromas and flavours.
