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.

Bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown/orange appearance with a big creamy-orange colored head. Sweet pale maltiness in the nose along with a significant hoppy aroma. Flavor is of a darker pale and amber malt content than most Imperial IPAs. Some hoppiness but it’s not as significant in flavor as 100 IBU may seem to sugest. Piney hoppy finish with a thick mouthfeel. Unique Imperial IPA but not one of the better ones.

Pours much darker than I anticipated, however when I look through the beer it appears a translucent reddish brown color. Aroma is rather heavy on the malt for my taste, however; I can smell a good hint of hops behind the malt. The taste begins with a a light malty taste but quickly moves on to the hops, and finishes very cleanly. Overall I am enjoying this beer, however for the category it represents it isn’t a top contender.

Translucent caramel pour with an off white head, very good lacing. Nose of floral hops, citrus hops, and caramel malt. Taste is sweet at first, finishes with lasting bitterness. A very good ipa, but if you want the best, look elsewhere. The bitterness isn’t balanced well enough and is a little overpowering, and you can check my other ratings, I love a bitter ipa.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Oxidized aroma, uneven head, little caramelized aroma. Dense, notes of cedar, quite a lot in fact. Hops pop in the finish, seems ’constructed’? can’t read my notes.

13-Oct-09 (500-ml bottle: Purchased 29-Sep-09 for $9.44 from liquidsolutions.biz) Pours a very cloudy, amber-brown body and a lively, light-tan head that, despite a careful pour, quickly balloons to nearly two inches in height before slowly settling to a quarter-inch layer. The heavily malty nose immediately draws me in – this isn’t the typical double IPA. It smells very, very toasty, slightly smoky, lots of rich earth and forest floor, some mushroom, and in the way of hops, a modest dustiness and a touch of pine. The first sip reveals similar characteristics: a moderately sweet, and very malt-dominated beer with a lot of earth, toasty and caramely malts, some mushroominess and a hint of fireplace smokiness. But for a double IPA, the hops are very much relegated to the background, strongly suggesting that this beer has seen a significant amount of age. The hops are lightly citrusy and piney with mild bitterness. There’s a mild acidity and bitterness in the background that does help to bring some balance on the palate, but nevertheless, the mouthfeel is sweet, dense and full-bodied from all the malt domination. Carbonation is surprisingly smooth and not especially voluminous in the mouth considering how carbonated the pour was – much of the carbonation was released upon pouring. This may not be the kind of beer people expect from a double IPA, but it’s very reminiscent of an aged double IPA but with the benefit of not having to wait two years. It is what it is, and that is a big, deliciously malty beer perfect for sipping over the course of an hour or two. If this were available locally and weren’t so expensive, it would probably be a multiple bottle purchase.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Cloudy orange pour with a frothy head. Aroma of caramel, honey, biscuits, and light spice. Flavor is a bit yeasty, some light hops, not much bitterness. Interesting.

wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Tasted from a 500mL bottle purchased at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. Pours a cloudy amber with an average white head that leaves an even blanket of lace. The nose is primarily caramel malt with a solid amount of resin and citrus hops. The flavor features the hops a little more than the nose would have suggested with a good amount of caramel malt and some good fruits as well. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter, citrus, and caramel malt finish.

Nice and tasty brew, feel a lot like batch #100 with lots of hops, fruits, dark malt and lovley well balanced strongness.
