@ BBF ’11. The aroma is very citric, orange, lemon, some grass. Slightly hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is malty, bitter, citric. Clean and fresh. Nice one.

Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orangé, col blanc-cassé. Arôme de fruits fermentés, citronné modéré qui ne m’inspire pas vraiment surtout lorsqu’on connaît les propriétés du Citra. Palais est franchement léger au niveau Citra. Le tout sur un palais semblant être renforcé au niveau sucre résiduel. Plus une impression de sucre candi sur un biscuité modéré. Pas mauvaise, mais venant de Nogne, j’espérais mieux. Soit la bière est ainsi, et de ce fait décevant, ou alors c’est une autre bière que le Hoppy Loft aurait gardé en cave bcp trop longtemps, ce qui ne me surprendrai pas.

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a dark amber body with a quite large, creamy, eggnog head that is both very long-lived and laces the glass very well. The aroma is very strong and has lovely notes of tropical fruits but also quite much caramel. Far more caramel than your average american IPA. The caramel is even more evident in the flavour profile, and along with it a moderate sweetness. For a brew that wants to showcase a single hop (which I guess is the case for a beer with "single hop" in its name), I think the malty part is a bit too dominating, both when it comes to the strong caramel flavour and the quite high sweetness. I guess this is Nøgne’s definition of a British style IPA... The finish is moderate plus bitter, but the sweetness could have handled even more bitterness. Still, this is definitely a hop driven beer, with tropical fruits, grapefruit and resinous notes. The mouthfeel is pleasant, the body is medium, the texture is slightly oily and the carbonation is moderate. A very nice IPA indeed.

(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 17 May 2013) Amber colour with rocky, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit and apricots. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, grapefruit, apricots, a touch of crystal malt and a generous citric bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body. Tasty and refreshing. Nice one.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2013
On tap at La Cerveteca in Barcelona. Pours a cloudy copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a soapy lacing. Aroma is a bit fruity with some citruses and a few passion fruit notes with a sweeter, bready caramel malt backing. Flavor is similar. Some orange citruses, a light passion fruit, and a few florals with a sweeter, bready, slightly toasted caramel malt backing. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with some grass, resins, and a slight sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Fairly fruity and a bit sweet, but balanced nicely. I like the slight toast note on the flavor. Good beer.

Draught at Akkurat. Hazy amber colour with a full off-white head. Strong citrus aroma with some hops and malt. Flavour is dominated by citrus with some fruitiness and malt. Refreshing.
