Less hops than you’d think you should be getting, and a yeasty overnote that overshadows it, with a sweetness that is also a bit confusing. Less bitter and more sweet isn’t a bad thing, this is a nice beer to drink but isn’t doing the IPA thing a justice.

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

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.

supermeniscus (62) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
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.

tomer (1756) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 20, 2014
At a tasting, thanks Gunnar, dense frothy head with some lacing, quite cloudy orange colour, aroma of pine and wood with some grapefruit, citrusy herbal flavour with a malty backbone, medium mellow flowery bitterness, light fruity sourness complementing, very nicely balanced. Good classic IPA.
