3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep, nougat brown body with a bronze-orange hue. Medium, long-lasting light khaki head. Nose is pine, spruce, malts, hints of butterscotch and grass. Taste is mellow and balanced, with grassy hops, butterscotch, toffee and malts. Very malty this one, even for an East Coast-style IPA. Medium bitter finish, dominated by grass and hints of pine. Slightly oily palate. A nice IPA, although I prefer them more in the West Coast tradition with more assertive and fruity hops. Nevertheless, this is a pretty good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 0,5l (BB 09/2012, Beer Hunters)
Clear amber color, good creamy white head. Licorice, resin, hops in the nose ... suprise, not like in a standard IPA. Flavor is bitter: resin, nuts, alcohol, malts. This is more like a strong ale than an IPA. And despite of American hops feels more like a strong ESB from England than IPA from Stateside.
