On tap at Barley Brothers. Clear golden pour with a thick, soapy off-white head. Aroma is a delicious balance of caramel malt and fruity hops, some citrus zest and a bit of tropical fruit. Flavour is the same, simultaneously a hit of bright, fresh hops and a tasty malt bill. Top-knotch IPA.

Smakt hjemme i ølglass. Frisk og bitter lukt. Tydelig ufiltrert fra fargen. Smaker sitron. Fin bitterhet. En veldig god IPA.

Bought this in Moscow in half a liter bottle, appearance is great, not enough bitterness in my opinion, should taste it.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Pours golden orange with minimal haze and a thick head. Aroma of citrus, spices and malt. Medium body, oily feel, soft/average carbonation. Taste hits right away with pepper, licorice and lingering on a floral note with a touch of caramel. Lovely long and bitter finish. My go-to Norwegian IPA.

Hazy orange colour with very plump white head. Aromas are complex with orange, lime and malts predominating. Taste is very full, with great flavours of orange, grapefruit and apricot and hints of leather and flowers. Long grapefruit-dominated finish. This is a great beer with complex, rich flavours and beautiful balance. One of the best IPAs I have tasted. High drinkability.

Exceptional IPA. Aroma is pine, leather. Taste is full pacific hops, deep rich malts (it says in the ingredients there is also wheat? interesting..) Palate is amazing, can’t believe I finished a 50cl bottle so quickly. Will seek out again soon.
