500 nl. bottle pours a cloudy amber color with decent khaki head and some lacing. Aroma is full of citrus and piney hops, with enough caramel malt to keep things balanced. Taste is slightly sweet at first (malts) and then quite bitter for the finish. Body is medium without too much carbonation. A very enjoyable IIPA

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 Nøgne Ø n’est plus à faire, mais ce produit n’est pas aussi exceptionnel que je l’aurais escompté.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Nice and classic Nogne bottle art. Pours a clear light orange color forming a huge and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings formed and left in the glass S: Strong fruity and citrus notes. Grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Sweet pale grains. Flowery hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very citrus notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a strong and pleasant hops bitterness. Well hidden 8.5% ABV M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, citrus and piny aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Another Nogne classic [ BA Review @ 6/27/2014 ]

Orange ambrée trouble, effervescence faible, col blanc crémeux tombe vite. Les houblons attaquent rapidement le palais, y déployant toute leur amertume fruitée et résineuse. Dommage qu’elle soit légèrement écoeurante...

Flaska från Vinmonopolet i Norge. Ljus bärstensfärgad med vitt skum. Citrus och apelsin paras med maltig sötma i doften. Lätt sötma möter rivig beska som brer ut sig eftersom. Fyllig munkänsla.

Served on tap at O’reilly’s during IPA day.

A - Pours murky golden orange with a nice pillow of one and a half finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of dulled citric hops, lightly toasted caramel malt, pine resin, and some light citric fruit; mostly oranges. This one smelled a little stale but it was still pretty decent.

T - Starts off with a big dose of caramel malt sweetness slowly giving way to a mix of dulled citric hops, pine resin, oranges, grapefruit, and some light chewiness. The finish is a mix of light citric hop bite and dryness, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit syrupy with a nice, dry, hop bite at the very end.

O - Not too bad. I think this one may be on the verge of going off a cliff. I am glad I got to try it but I won’t be running back over here for more.

Oh capitani, miei capitani! Questa birra stupisce e toglie il fiato, imbizzarrendo i sensi. Corpo denso, maltoso e con caratteri resinosi, che accompagna un gusto amaro intenso, arricchito da note di luppolo, fruttate e agrumate. Il retrogusto è persistente e avvolgente. Un bocconcino prelibato che salpa con il vento in poppa verso gli sconfinati oceani dell’eccellenza!
