Bottle at euston tap. Not much aroma not much taste and no hoppiness. Super disappointed after I read other reviews. Maybe this batch is off. Batch 649 bb 24/06/14

Orange color with medium head. Tropical Fruits, citrusy and resinous. Taste is fruity and sweet-bitter, decent bitter finish. Rather low carbonation. A nice reference-style West Coast IPA.

ljthiessen (510) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
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.
