3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Thanks Santa!
Aroma is moderately malty with some toasted bread, cracker and caramel notes. Moderate floral hop notes that are woodsy and slight floral. Moderate notes of onion and garlic with some grapefruit and hop resin.
Pours a somewhat cloudy, murky brown with some amber and copper notes. Moderately thick, somewhat tan head that displays above average retention as it slowly recedes to a thin film. Moderate resin with medium sized legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with light cracker notes and moderate caramel and toasted bread character. Medium high bitterness with moderate hop flavor. Hop flavor is mostly grassy and woodsy with some onion notes. Light grapefruit and pine resin with hints of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an interesting IPA but the hop notes are not as nice as I prefer. The malt notes are also too strong and sweet and muddle the hop notes.

Cloudy orange; white head with great lacing; aromas: citrus, pine, grapefruit, floral hops. Taste: medium hoppiness, grapefruit, tangerine, biscuit, very good backbone for this ABV. Lingering finish, very balanced norwegian IPA. Nice brew, to drink all the time and everywhere. Congratulations to Voss and Lervig!
