Sweet and hoppy aroma. Pours a soft hazy caramel with a discreet white head. Soft on the tongue with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with a better end. Lovely IPA

0,5l bottle. Amber, hazy, white head. Lovely. Fresh hoppy aroma with undertones of caramel, raisins and yeast. Bitter, yes, but with a fine balance with the sweetness. I wish the fresh, light tastes from the hops would be more prominent in the flavour. More citrus, perhaps, but all in all, a good IPA, but far from the best.

50cl bottle from Systembolaget. A perfect IPA. Well-balanced hops, a long bitter aftertaste with a bite from the alcohol. Well done, Nögne!

Caramel, bread, grass, citrus and fruits in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head.Medium + sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Overall really nice fruity and flavor-full IPA.

Bottle. Golden, white head. Delicious aroma of fruity hops. Taste is very fresh, with lots of hops of course. Freshbitter finish. Good malty body, with a touch of caramel. Good beer.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber, small white head with decent lacing. Fruity hop aroma with some sweet caramel malts. Wonderful silky mouthfeel without being cloying. Great stuff.

Blonde dorée-orangée, un poil voilée. Grosse mousse blanc cassé, relativement persistante. Bons lacings. Au nez houblonnage puissant sur le pin, fruits tropicaux et légèrement citrus. Un léger côté sucré-caramel balançant bien le tout. Le blé n’est pas décelable à priori. En bouche l’amertume s’affirme franchement avec une belle longueur, mais sans astringeance. Un peu salée-épicée en bouche. Sinon pin-résineux dominant dans l’houblon. Le côté sucré-caramel moins présent en bouche... Sensation de fraicheur. Assez grosse carbonatation. Très bonne IPA sur les fruits tropicaux et la fraicheur malgré le fort houblonnage amérisant.

Light citruses and grassy aroma. Short fruti sweet bit acidic start then growing bitterness with grassy note. Bit too harsh for me.
