3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Geokkjer, Meilby, and yngwie for this one. Amber pour with a white head. Nice tangerine and orange hop notes. Some sweet caramel malt, floral hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor is a little on the sweet side, but still fruity and citrus forward. Tangerine, orange peel, and a bit of peach. Floral, pine, and light grass notes. Mild bitterness on the finish.

Hazy amber pour with a large frothy off white head and clinging lace. Pleasant grapefruit hop aroma. Crisp grapefruit, citrus, piny wine gum flavour. Crisp bitterness. Great tasting IPA.

Deep, rusted copper pour, cloudy, lots of head of a slightly orange colour. Nose has lime, pineapple, spice, orange, grapefruit and a little pine. Less exciting on the palate although that lime note really comes through. More pine and spice than on the nose but overall it lacks cohesion.

On tap at Durty Nellies. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aromas of toffee and bready malts, spices, pine, and some faint citrus. Flavors were malty with pine and spices. Little citrus and hop bitterness as well. Was expecting an IPA and got something I would expect to find is the specialty grain category.

Bottle. High and lasting fluffy light brown head. Hazy very dark brown body. Alcohol dominated roasted malt caramel aroma. Very bitter flavor with a good deal of lemon and creamy malt caramel plus a heavy shot of alcohol. Low carbonation. Long bitter finish. Alcohol too dominant.

Hazy brown color, decent brown head. Hoppy, heavy fruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Bitter, piney-fruity. Rye comes with soft breadyness. Little brother of #100. Good but one pint is enough!

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours a hazy brown with a big brown head. Aromas of fruit, citrus and caremel. Tastes citrus fruits, caremel malts, and some spice notes with a bitter finish. Interesting!

Tap at Daglighallen Ølfest 2012. Fresh from the keg (As Nøgne Ø staff, I served myself...whopsi) - hazy amber colour. Taste is tangerinejuice, mild lemon and lime. Not very bitter. A nice refreshing brew.
