FirmButtstone (48) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Cloudy orange color with a nice white head. Lots of head actually, bottle was very active. Great grapefruit aroma and some pine. The hops stand out more as the beer gets warmer. Do not drink this one cold, let it warm up a bit. Overall a great example of a cascade IPA.

mario_giri (141) - SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2015
Ich rieche fruchtige und blumige Hopfen, etwas Zitrone und Mandarinen vielleicht auch. Ein kurzer fester Schaum ein schönes klares helles Orange. Zu Beginn sehr bitter wird dann von einer malzigen Fruchtigkeit aufgefangen. Mittelvoll, angenhem kabonisiert, rutscht gut. Zum Schluss wird es ein wenig trocken bleibt aber immer angenehm bitter. Ein sehr gutes Bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy orange amber with very thin white head. Nose is tropical fruit. Aromas are toasted malts, lychees, resinous pine. Fizzy carbonation, medium body. Long bitter piney finish. Well balanced IPA, but nothing exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlazerT (150) - POLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange,cooper with medium, semi-densed white head. Medium lasting. Good lacin. Nice aroma of tropical fruits (mango), citrus, some resin aromas. You can also nice some sweet malty profile. Taste is medium bitter (grapefruit like), from the middle balanced with sweet malts. Finish is bitter, dry and quite long. Medium body, silky, medium carbonation. In overall good and drinkable IPA. You won’t find here any extraordinary, but solid and balanced beer.

500 ml bottle. Opaque chunky orange, off-white foam mostly lasts. Aroma of fruity citrus hop and c-malt. Bitter grapefruity hop taste, denser sweet caramel malt, some spice and evergreen, a bit floral. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. Ould skool.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 50cl bottle from Oslo Airport@home. Cloudy amber with sufficient head and carbonation to convince you that these guys know what they are doing. Good aroma clearly displaying the American hops used to give this IPA...or should I say DIPA - a more modern expression. Taste of hops, grapefruit and bitternes. Too much bitterness for my taste as it ruins the balance and leaves a very bitter aftertaste...almost medicinal. I prefer the Two Captains from Nøgne Ø - though initinally aggressive, it is better balanced.
