IPA double fîne te subtile.Tout y est modéré.Nez d’ananas, d’herbes, de pin, de fruits de la passion et de pèches.On retrouve tout ça en bouche soutenu par un corps d’alcool plutôt modéré et une finale légèrement sèche, une amertume contrôlée.

Tasted at the TAP Nøgne O food pairing for Matt's birthday. Had with the macaroni & cheese ball. Apparently brewed with the intention of mimicking Pliny the Elder (though doesn't taste much like it) and originally only brewed as a single batch but bought back by popular demand (and a Facebook campaign). Cloudy amber-tan, thin white head. Smells of fruity resin hop, malt - relatively faint. Taste is very resinous and hoppy, slight florals, some crisp grassiness, slight plastic (?). Body is medium with some airy carbonation.

HKdIPA (489) - HONG KONG - JUN 7, 2015
Fourth beer at Nøgne TAP birthday lunch. Had years ago but not rated. Slightly translucent dark copper amber pour. Aroma is pronounced hoppiness - mostly resin, some dank ripe fruit. Taste is ripe fruit, lots of bitter resin, some plasticky hops taste, unfortunately. Better than I remember though. Not as boozy as expected. Finish is bitter but dissipates. Good not great DIPA
