A lovely complex IPA. There is alot going on here and the experience is beautiful. Nothing like a West-Coast IPA but very well balanced.

The backbone of Nøgne Ø. This surprising blend of old Europe, lovely England and cheeky America (Munich is here in the malt, there’s English ale yeast as well as Chinook and Cascade hops) with a bit of Norwegian water added, is probably my favorite middle strenght Norwegian IPA (although Ægirs "regular" and Kinn’s are strong contenders).The sweet and bitters along with gruit and lovely citrus almost cleans away your thirst. A dangerous beer, it is so drinkable and hides the strength so well, you’ll be out on the street if you’re not careful!

Fantastic strong hoppy aroma with fruity bitter finish. Extremely thick head - pour carefully! Absolutely fantastic IPA, by far the best one I’ve personally tasted

Almost a perfect IPA. Fruity and deliciouss. Only problem is that it is difficult to drink more than 1 or 2.. "Too" much taste:)

Pours perfcet copper into a glass. The aroma is to kill for. This is the standard about as good as an awesome IPA can get.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Every India Pale Ale lover should drink this beer. One of the best I?ve ever tasted. Wonderful, resin, floral, citrus aroma and a great full body. Masterpiece

I had to add to this post, as I just returned from Norway and am in search of this beer. One of the best I have ever had. That being said, it was sipped in Oslo, fresh as can be...hoping to track some down soon...

Amazing taste of this beer, white creamy foam, strong, spicy like kind of flavour through your throat. Very very good tasting beer.

Botella 50cl. En el Lupulo Feroz. El aroma de malta predomina sobre el lúpulo. Color naranja con sedimentos. Sabor inmejorable. De las mejores IPA’s
