UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 On tap at Amundsen. Redish brown colour with a small head. Aroma is laden with hops, spices and tropical fruits. No hints of rye. Flavour is smooth. Notes of hops, spices, caramel and fruits. Faint hints of rye. The alcohol is very well hidden. Medium long aftertaste. Really nice beer.
Updated the rating after trying a bottle version at Håndverkerstuene.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2011 On tap @ Cardinal. Pours reddish with tan head. 100+ IBU and rye - thats right up my alley. Loads of bittering hop and a spicy flavor from both the hops and the rye and a solid enough malt base to back it up . A really god IPA - one of my absolute favorites from Lervig.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Cardinal. Amber body with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel and malt with lots of citric fruit dominated by grapefruit. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity, citric, pine and caramel on a nice base of malt/bread. Medium body. Sweet without being sticky, has a really nice malt flavor in the background that follows the aftertaste in harmony with the bitterness.

Draught, KØ11. Mild hop aroma. Almost clear deep copper colour. The flavour is hoppy, grassy, a bit too sweet to be refreshing.
