Brenhophead (656) - Perth, - DEC 3, 2011
Nice big head and decent lacing with a pine/grassy and grapefruit aroma. A semi sweet start with the grapefruit flavour and a big bitter finish. This is a very decent US IPA.

IntlAgBrewer97 (4) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2015 does not count
On tap at Cardinal in Stavanger, Norway. Poured clear with good head. Dark golden color. Aroma was pleasant. Hop bitterness was a bit overwhelming, with not much balance IMO. It was a harsh bitterness that seemed to be a throwback to the hop / IBU race of the late 90s early 2000s. I often wonder if any delicate hop flavors / aromas were lost given the time to transport to Norway. Bitterness was too harsh to enjoy

gunnar (6631) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2015
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours light hazy golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, resiny and piney hops, lovely and inviting. Taste is clean crisp resiny hops, well balanced with a long dry moreish clean aftertaste.

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2015
Draught at Taphouse. High creamy and long lasting off-white head. Cloudy thin looking light yellow body. Mild fruity aroma. Very dry grass lemon grapefruit pine flavor with a high carbonation and a long dry finish. Alcohol level seems just right.

olsvammel (4237) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2015
On tap at Taphouse in Copenhagen. Hoppy smell with citrus. Similar taste with grapefruit. Strong and long bitterness. Medium carbonation. Not the cleanest hop aroma, but still a nice beer.

from Birreria Edelweiss@Alba Adriatica - quite clear amber-orange beer with a persistent beige foam; solid flowery and resiney hoppiness; full-bodied, some sweetness and a solid bitterness; quite dry and long caramelish, spicy and piney finish

tightslice (465) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pine, citrusy hops. Taste is a lovely balance of hops and malts. Solid... and one of the better IPAs currently wasting away on a Safeway shelf.
