UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 (Bottle) Pours amber. Hoppy and fruity aroma with grapefruit and young broken wood. Undertones of caramel, malt and cherries. Bitter and dry flavour with grapefruit and some wood. A light floral thouch in the middle. Lingering, bitter citrus peel aftertaste. Medium body. Nice.

Bottle. Great aroma, floral & resiny. Also a smell of grape fruits. Lots of grape fruits in the flavour. High bitterness, perhaps a little too much.

A golden coloreud cloudy ale. Incredibly hoppy and citrus aroma. So very fresh and bitter at the same time. A world class IPA!!!

Golden, hazy with a nice head. The aroma has nice spicy aroma hops and the flavour has malt, hops and fruit. The bitterness is nice and becoming, and stronger in the finish. It’s a nice pale ale with a lot of flavour and a very long finish, that pleases me several minutes...

Unclear orange golden with little white foamy head. Aroma of sweet malts & powerfull hops. Grapefruit, pine & flowers. Smooth mouthfeel. Very bitter finish - which I personally love. Perhaps not large variosity, could need some sweeter malts to keep it well balanced and dull the power biting hops. Anyway, another great experience from Norway & Nøgne ø!

Bottle. Hazy amber colour with a thick white head. Nice aroma of grapefruit hops. Lovely grapefruit hoppy flavour with good balancing malts. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Lingering lovely ’n’ light long bitter finish. I’ve had many IPAs that were less IPA-ish than this. Excellent, whether it’s a pale ale or IPA.

This, unfortunately for me, might just be my favorite pale ale to date even thought I will probably never seen it sold in the US. In fact, I find it hard to catergorize this pale ale as such, because I feel it belongs in the IPA catergory due to the high levels of hops. But I digress. This is one fantastic beer. Intense aroma of grapefruit and floral hops, woody with a tinge of sweet malt. Mouthfeel is very pleasant with a smoothness thats very hard to find. Flavor is incredibly hoppy (grapefruits, some floral notes too) for a pale ale, and it’s nicely balanced by the malts. Sad to say that unless I get it in trade, I doubt it will see the California sunshine again.

DBF 2005. Hazy amber, thin white head and moderate condition. Restrain flowery hops and sweet malt aromas, quite soft and sweet graininess in the mouth but well balanced by hop flavour and a pleasantly fruity bitter finish.
