COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Norge og Sørlandet har siden 1864 hatt innflytelse på brygging i Japan. http://www.kirin.co.jp/daigaku/ o japan/william copland/index.html. Vi på Nøgne Ø ønsket å markere dette ved å invitere bryggermester Toshi Ishii fra Karuizawa, Nagano til å brygge sammen med oss. Resultatet ser du her: en Dobbel IPA.

A guest brew by Toshi Ishii from Yo-Ho Brewing, 100 IBU.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2011
500 ml bottle. Big, fruity barley wine nose, with caramel, dried fruits (plum, fig), big and juicy. Cloudy, muddy, dark amber brown. Dry, hoppy flavor with wood, big bitterness, dry dark chocolate, pine, plum, umeboshi. Nicely dry. Good stuff. More like a barley wine.

mile (2993) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle. Amber, hazy,average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, tropical fruitiness, grapefruit hoppyness and caramel. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, piney and grapefruit hoppyness, some caramel and fruitiness. Finish is average to full, malty and sweetish, fruity with grapefruit hoppyness, some caramel and fruitiness with some toffee. Sweet DIPA, too fruity and caramel sweetish for me.

mcberko (6515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
500 mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours murky dark orange / amber / brown with a medium beige head. Aroma screams tropical fruits, with mango, apricot, peaches and tangerine all prevalent, along with citrus hops, grapefruit and sufficiently backed caramel malts. Flavour is quite complex for an IPA, with mango, apricot, peaches and pungent grapefruit, and heaps of citrus hops, backed by a barrage of caramel malt. Finishes on a slightly bitter, grapefruity note. Most excellent.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
500ml split with mcberko. Pours an interesting hazy or murky brown/orange. Looks untreated. Thick ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Aroma of candied sugar, caramel malts, lots of tropical fruits. Flavour is of sweet tropical fruits and caramel and soft to begin with, then the bitterness slowly crescendos to a beautiful finish. Flavour isn’t as hoppy as I expected. Nicely balanced, complex layers, Keeps you interested. Gorgeous.

tiong (3771) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2011
500ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours dark orange with a nice smooth foamy head. Taste is fruity and sweet with notes of malts and hops. Bitter, fruity and sticky finish. Alcohol warms nicely. Quite nice, almost barley wine like IIPA.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2011
500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. I’ve never gotten this before because I never know how long it’s been on the shelf, but this was a new batch. Pours a cloudy brown-amber color with a big khaki head that settles unevenly. Aroma of caramel malts, sweet dough, candi sugar, toast, rainwater, and some grassy hops in the background. Flavor of caramel malts, bitter hops, toasted brown sugar, graham crackers, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel and lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation. Decent IIPA but doesn’t have enough hops to pair up with the abundant sweet malts.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Malzig-hefiger Geruch. Hopfiger und zu gleichem Anteil süßer Antrunk, ab dem Mittelteil etwas holzig. Hier ist das Bier zudem hefig-süffig, wirkt aber deutlich zu süß. Im Abgang dagegen ist das Bier eher lasch, der Hopfen hat eine angenehme Intensität, zudem malzig und spürbar alkoholisch. Kein wirklich hopfiges IPA, dafür aber meist zu würzig. /9/9/9//9

SaintMatty (5259) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2011
500ml Bottle (O’Connor’s, Uppsala) - Amber with a foamy head. Fruity aroma with marzipan, berries and hops. Tangy, fruity and hoppy taste with notes of pine, dried fruit and caramel. Not bad, although it would’ve perhaps been better when it was more fresh.

StefanSD (2136) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
500ml bottle fro dkachur. Thanks Dan. Pours a hazy chestnut brown color with a big clumpy beige head that has great retention and amazing lacing. The aroma is strong with caramel, oxidized pine resins and toffee. The flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of oxidized hops, pine, caramel, toffee, leather and tobacco. The palate is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and biter. Overall: This beer is well past its prime, but still holding up (just like me). Very tasty quaff.
