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.

Tap 33cl. Grünerløkka Brygghus. Nice white sidesticking head. A citric fruity aroma, hard to tell. Sweet rotten pear perhaps. Sweet taste of syrup and sugar. Good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow-amber beer with a thinnish white head. Hoppy nose with notes of citrus, pollen, resins, sugary canned fruits, fruitcake and berryish yeast. Malty and slightly sweet/bready flavor with balanced caramel sweetness. Blanced bitterness. In the finish it tasty, dryish maltiness, berryish English yeast character together with juicy and slightly spicy and piney hop bitterness. It also has slightly mineral, almost salty aftertaste. Medium to full body, smooth and very drinkable texture. Well balanced DIPA with great drinkability.

orange with large white head. nose of oxidized citrus and herbal hops. firm bitterness before touches of low crystal sweetness o perhaps munich malt before solid citrus and herbal hop flavors that are slightly muted with age. the beer shows little alcohol presence and has a relatively dry finish for the abv. overall a pretty traiditional double ipa that at its prime would probably be solid but not spectacular and now is below average

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s orange color, a bit hazy, with big and steady head and amazing lacing. Aroma is a big sweet mix of different smells. There are: orange, grapefruit, a bit of mango and other yellow fruits. You can also smell there cloves, coriander and flowers. The mouth feel is super smooth. For a moment it feels highly carbonated but it immediately goes away. It also has great bitter aftertaste. The taste itself is a bit simpler. It’s a combination of grapefruit’s bitterness and orange sweetness. Great beer!

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Shmupi. Orange golden with a big head. Smell of stale fruity hops, orange jam and caramel. Sweet-sour with some fruitiness and caramel, strong hops bitterness, a bit harsh and not balanced. Medium-bodied, not fresh enough.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 (50 cl bottle courtesy of Mark, thanks!; Batch 922; Brewed on June 2nd 2013) Pours a slightly hazy amber with little, white head. Decent retention, lace and regeneration. Aroma is yeasty with notes of citrusy hops. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body and an astringent, warming finish. Flavour is bitter and boozy with sprucy notes.
Original rating from February 23rd 2013: (50 cl bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel; bbd: March 6th 201<illegible>) Pours a hazy amber with medium white head. Good retention and lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is a subtle hoppy with fruity notes and an acidic hint. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body with a warming finish. Taste is boozy with fruity notes and an astringent finish. Dipa is just not my favourite style. Girlfriend says "I like the aroma but it’s too bitter for me."
