Bottle from Cornelius. Murky ruby body with a thick off-white head. Clumpy yeast floating around (I made a mess of the pour). Steady carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of mandarin, furniture polish, grass, toffee apple and dough. Flavour of grapefruit, passionfruit and caramel sweetness. Medium body with a smooth, oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A wonderful, full-flavoured IPA. I must try more from this brewery.

0,5L bottle, BB 07.06.2015. Pours hazy amber with big white head. The head stays for a long time. Nice lacing. Aroma is intense hops, fruits, citrus, pine, grass, sweetness in the background. The taste is of course fruity, but also floral, sweet, caramel, citrus, some nice bitterness. It really reminds the mandarins a little bit! Finish has also bitterness and hints of sweetness. It’s also a little creamy. Overall: I really like this one. I was afraid that it’ll be just "sweet grapefruit", but it’s not. Very good IPA.

On tap at Kristiansand Ølfestival. Unclear deep orange body with a foamy off-white head. Massive fruity aroma, citric fruit, tropical fruit, some pine, ripe plum, dry apricot and some caramel malt. Flavor has the same fruitiness that could be found in the aroma, it’s quite bitter with balanced sweet malt and hint of caramel. A fine balanced body with a long lasting aftertaste with lots of citric fruit that almost feels like fruit juice in the end. Nice and complex IPA, probably one of the most interesting new IPA I have sampled recently.

Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore. Wow. This is really nice. Pours a clear amber. Thin white head. Lots of citrus and orange on the nose. Flavor is fruity. Reminds me of orange faints. Finishes a bit sweet. Medium to light bodied.
