3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml unfiltered bottle purchased at EZ. Poured a deep orangey-brown body under a huge foamy light beige head along with some floaties that sank to the bottom of my SA snifter. Aroma of earth, tea, citrus rind and caramel malt. The body is thinner with strong carbonation and a quickly fading aftertaste. Flavors of earth, dried out citrus rind, tea leaves old crusts. Overall this is meh......probably great fresh but how Lang does this take from brewery to my drive I’d guess months.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 What is it with the Norwegians making better American IPA’s by the second. This beer pours an almost copper orange. aroma is mostly citrus, grass, and some orange. Taste was excellent straight thru to the end where the bitterness showed the brewers english roots with a bitter dry finish. Also the alcohol was very well hidden. Overall it was a good representation of a Double IPA.. But Sadly It was nothing special.

On tap. Pours orange with medium off white bubbly head. Foam dissipates quickly. Good lacing. Aroma is stunning: huge hoppy lemony and spicy notes are sorrounded by a good amount of malty sweetness. Lots of yeasty and malty notes, with hints of toffee. Taste is great: lots of complexity with a piney, citrusy bitterness softened by a sweet sensation. Lots of grassy-resiny flavors. Body is full with medium carbonation. Overall, a great DIPA.

16.9 oz bottle. Muddy orange with a fluffy white head. Nose is orange, dough, caramel and pine. Medium body with a lively tingle. Taste is orange, pine, pith and toffee. Understated, nicely balanced and refreshing with a bite.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Nice to see the Nords have finally named a beer after the Captain married to Toni Tenille and Captain Kangaroo; definitely two of the best captains ever. Prank news caller Captain janks would be high on my list, too. Anywho, the pour here is turbid orange with a huge fluffy white head, and mild gushing upon opening. The nose is orange marmaladey and mangoey fruit, hops, resiny, with a solid earthy caramel malt bill. Tastes resiny, hoppy, heavy on the IBUs, with rich caramel malt, tropical fruit such as tangerine, mango, pineapple, navel orange, and even more bitterness as it warms. Palate is medium to hefty, astringent, complex, and a hop lovers wet dream. This one kicks substantial ass.

Body is medium, tangy on the palate, soft carbonation, oily and a bit resiny. Dry malty flavors up front. Light citrusy notes follow, caramel and a light fruitiness. Fairly dry finish, lasting, fruity and citrusy. A mild IIPA. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orangebrun, lite grumlig, fint offwhiteskum. Massor av humle i doften, främst grape och tall. Medelsöt lite jordig kropp och riktigt bra bett i beskan. En DIPA lite över snittet.
