The two captains looks lovely. A nice foam head. There is an earthy pine scent, with hops, citrus, and malts. I taste hops, citrus, sweet malts, and barley. The drink has a mild bitterness mixed with a slight malty sweetness. Overall it is a good brew. It will impact the palate mildly too.

Pours a cloudy dark gold with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is big citrus hops. Taste is a great balance of big citrus hops and sweet honey malts. Smooth going down. I can drink a lot of this.

Tap at the Wheatsheaf: solid beer, good flavours with a lovely oily mouthfeel. However, just not as good as other DIPA by Nogne.

50 cl bottle at home. Once again a DIPA takes me right to the place I want to be, and won’t let go. This is a slightly more hoppy and cheerful DIPA then many I have had before, but that is not a drawback. A very inspirational beer for a home brewer and a great representative of Norway.

KyotoLefty (7337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 18, 2013
Draught at Faucets. Pretty, glowing deep orange with a low head. Big, grassy, earthy hop aroma with solid cereals and chocolate malts. Light citrus. Nice caramel flavor, stewed dark fruits n the back, grass, hay, and big piney resins. Quite bitter but balanced. Excellent.

daniel0017 (402) - Yukon, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
Opaque / cloudy golden amber body with much sediment and slight head, no retention. Very floral hops with honey, citrus and some funk to the nose. Weird funk, almost.... nah. Flavor is sharp and bitter at first, then becomes mild as it lingers in the mouth. It has a slightly astringent quality, but the sweet malts counter the effect. Nice, smooth, even mouthfeel. No volcano.

rejtable (1685) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Love this! Pours cloudy orange with limited head and lacing. Nose is earthy. Aromas are resin, grassy hops, some sweet malt backing and a massive fruity bouquet through the middle. Love this. Tastes are medium sweet and a medium bitter finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Not a big hop bomb, but regardless it tastes great!

(bottle) hazy copper colour with a small off white head; aromas of grapefruit, fruit, honey; balanced flavour with a long strong bitter finish; excellent

Bottle [500ml]. Pours golden-orange with a small semi-lasting off-white head. Lovely aroma of resiny, citrusy hops along with some alcohol and juicy fruit. Flavour is just as good, with lots and lots of hops along with fruit and malt in the back and just a hint of alcohol. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Like others said, it’s closer to a Barley Wine then an IPA, but whatever it is its delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange-copper with a thicker eggshell cap. Nose involves sweet barley, some pit fruit, light pine resin, and candied citrus. Taste is largely sweet but quite bitter also. Heavier bodied, tingly, a touch sticky, with a fairly lengthy bitter finish. Not sure how fresh it was, but it came across as a barleywine/IIPA hybrid with many of the heavy malt characteristics of barleywine styles. A really intense, big beer that was very enjoyable.
