Kobberfarget med lyst beige skum. Nydelig fruktig aroma med et hint av vanilje. Mye bitterhet i smaken med grapefrukt. Oljete og tørr munnfølelse.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Murky orangish brown beer with flocculent yeasties. Big, ivory head which persists for a while. Longneck pint, cool P-82s on the label. Sweetish, malty, honeyish aroma with some fruitiness and implied vanilla. Wow. Interesting flavor. Cakey, sweet, moderately citrus and sloe, ladyfinger vanilla notes, ABV is reasonably masked. Biotic and fun. Proof Bottle Shop.

GlasgowTAD (128) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Pours amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is slight citrus. Taste is initially sweet, citrus which then follows on to heavy hop bitterness. Nice beer but could use more balance.

Mindwarp (90) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Pours a medium gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Heavy bitterness at first taste, pine resin and a slight citrus with more bitterness at the tail end. This is a good DIPA, way to go Norway.
