Gentle floral and citrusy cascade hop aroma, lots of sweet caramel and toffee become evident as it warms,taste is pretty much a blend of the citrus hops and rich caramel malt,more balanced then typical American IPA’s ,what does come tothe forefront is the bitterness,,they spared no expense on the bittering hops, its huge and very enjoyable, one of the bitterest exports I’ve ever had

Pours a cloudy orange/amber color with a thick layer of creamy head and a good amount of lacing. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hop balanced nicely with caramel malt. Flavor is piney, caramel and some grapefruit. Very nice bu/gu ratio. Medium bodied, thick texture.

Fresh aroma, nice full head. good color. What a change to this from the Moylan Moylander. Not so much hops up front or throughout but great sublteness. Nice.

From a 500mL Bottle. Purchased form Liquid Solutions. Pours a hazy caramel amber color with a thick layer of creamy ivory head. Fresh, citrusy cascade hop aromas leap from behind a thick, caramel malt base. Chewy, almost salty caramel candy notes with a touch of vanilla. Candied oranges and gentle red pine. Medium bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel. The texture is awfully heavy for an IPA, but the richness and softness of the malt body is admittedly rather pleasant. Malty caramel, toffee, and nutty almond bread up front on the palate, but a substantial dose of citrusy red grapefruit rind hops add enough bitterness to scrub the palate clean. Lingering west coast hop flavors in the finish. Like pretty much every Nogne O beer, this is flawlessly executed, but simply misses the mark for my stylistic preference.

Bottle. Hazy amber color, thin head with noticeable lacing. For an IPA, it has a light hop flavor with a high amount of maltiness. I enjoyed it.

Hazy amber, moderate head with decent lacing and retention. Aroma is richly cascade, with some sweeter fruity hop notes as well. Medium bodied, bittersweet finish. Solid IPA.

Finally, my first nogne - I can’t wait to try it! Nice hazy amber/brown coloured body with a largish white head - a bit dark for an american IPA. Aroma of fresh grassy and grapefruity hops, coupled with nuts and a slight taint of yeast. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong high a.a. hops up front with a good malt backbone and a very mild nuttiness. Aftertaste shows some alcohol, potent toffee and even a bit of kick from the hops. Overall, a good IPA - not as ’crazy’ as a west-coast IPA, but good to try from Norway. I can’t wait for the rest! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from West Lakeview Liquor in Chicago, Illinois on 25-December-2007.

Murky red brown amber with unimpressive head. Smell is highly soapy-hops. Palate is surprisingly carbonated for what I was expecting. Taste is slightly medicinal up front. However - it is nice and hoppy in the flavor overall. Bitterness is nice and not overly heavy.
