Murky brown - very malty - thick on the tongue - just enough hops to make it drinkable - not my style.

vanelst (117) - AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2014
Aroma of malt, pineapple, oranges, grapefruits and hops. Bitter grapefruite taste and hops at the beginning, sweeter middle part and a long bitterdry finish. All in all a good beer, but the bitterness of this one is not refreshing at ale and kinda too overwhelming. Overrated for what it is.

Bottle. Aroma elderflower, overall flowery, light resiny. Clear amber colour with reddish tint. Taste has nicely balanced intense bitterness and decent sweet backbone. Citrus, orange, resiny. Tasty. Very good. Long hoppy finish.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Barwa: bursztynowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, początkowo obfita, dość szybko opada, ale ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat: słodowy (herbatniki z karmelem), wyraźnie alkoholowy oraz chmielowy cytrusy (wśród których dominują mandarynki) oraz zioła. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny, słodowy, ale raczej wytrawny i alkoholowy początek. Następnie chmielowa kontra z goryczką powyżej średniej, głównie ziołowa i nieco łodygowa, zielona, trochę zalegająca. Piwo uwarzone według receptury zwycięzcy norweskiego konkursu piw domowych w 2010r. Prawdopodobnie z tego powodu producent nie podaje pełnego składu, jak zwykł to czynić w przypadku swoich piw. Barwa i aromat są nawet niezłe, ale w smaku za bardzo atakuje moim zdaniem alkohol i goryczka jest nieco męcząca. Z tego powodu piłem całą butelką dość długo.

pours dark hazy copper. Aroma is funky, notes of fruit and pine. Bitter with a Belgian yeast background. Fruity with notes of lemon a nice amount of hops and funk on the finish. Medium body light carbonation.

fajry (382) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 9, 2014
Flaša. Tmavo oranžová farba, krásna biela pena, dlho držala. Vôňa sladká, ovocná, jemne karamelové tóny a broskyne. Taktiež cítiť alkohol. V chuti sladkosť, kvetinové a ovocné tóny, grapefruit, trávovosť a zemitosť. Telo plné, pekná vyváženosť sladkosti a horkosti. Veľmi pitné, ale alkohol je dosť citeľnŭ.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle, thnx to Cunningham. Pours a deep dark amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, lots of caramel ams citric notes. No real complexity in the aroma, it’s just nice. Flavor is nice and bittersweet, nice bitter grapefruit with some honey like malty influences. Nice, light bitter fruity aftertaste. Low carbo, decent mouthfeel, very nice beer.

The head on this beer lives a life on its own. Incredibly big and rising more than what one is used to. Beautiful hazy orange beer and lasting head. Not the strongest aroma but quality with grapefruit. This brewery is probably Norways best and one of the best in the world. I was expecting just a bit more of this, but it is very good. This one was bottled 2,5 months ago, maybe it would have been even sharper if I had it 1 month ago. Not too bitter, not too sweet.

Panzuriel (1287) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2014
nogne two captains pours a very hazy apple juice dark amber. It has a very thick head of off white bubbles. The nose is initially of wild honey, not overly sweet but full of clover blooms and tantalizing restrained sweetness. After the honey is a very mild hop presence, perhaps citrus or cedar, it’s a bit hard to discern. Taste is initially a bit funky and minerally, this fades as the restrained honey presence takes over mid swallow before resolving into a very light kiss of hops at the end. The Body is fluid and subtle with a kiss of bubbles. I think the appropriate term for this beer is subtle. From the nose to the finish it’s less about pure power and more about hints and whisps. Quite an atypical double IPA. Amazing. thoroughly enjoyable. I wish I had a few more.

Bière orangée, trouble au nez persistant de houblons floraux / herbacés sur un fond de caramel fondant. En bouche, l’amertume est saisissante, mais elle laisse malheureusement des sensations métalliques / électriques sur son passage. L’alcool est très présent, mais il semble davantage soutenir et amplifier les saveurs. La réputation de Nĝgne Ĝ n’est plus à faire, mais ce produit n’est pas aussi exceptionnel que je l’aurais escompté.

Yorker (1102) - Herning, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours brownish amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are resin, pepper, grapefuit, and caramel - with a bitter finish.
