Pours hazy amber-gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is of juicy hops, with mango, lemon and pine dominating. Taste is pretty malty-sweet, medium-bodied, with slight caramel notes but no hugely discernable malt character. There is a substantial and nuanced hop finish, clean and citrusy. I would prefer this a bit drier and with more carbonation, but the hop character is really great.

Roasty smell for an ipa. Roasty Taste brings up the hops which is sharp but not invasive. Hops fade a little to back to sweet roast. Bitter hops aftertase. Very solid dipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.

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!
