COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seriously potent bitterness with a series of pungent and resinous aromas. A Dry beer with a slight resinous licorice backbone to it. You got to drink this beer on a full moon night on a West Coast beach (an Italian one will surely do as well).

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Flowery hops, fruit, but everything is pushed aside by inistent piney hops. I love it.

ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen, shared with Maltmisjonen. Pours a slightly dark-hued orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is rosewater, floral perfumy notes, sweet honey and hints of herbs. Taste is floral heather tones, citrus, orange blossom and hints of nutty caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Decent IPA.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2013
Medium white head. Clear amber body with strong carbonation. Resiny catty oily aroma with peachy wooden orangey notes. Dry-sweet resiny peachy orangey taste with pine needle notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish resiny ashy oily aftertaste with pineapple and earth notes. Too harsh for me. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2013
330 ml bottle. Rather hazy orange body with a medium sized, lacing off-white head. Strong hoppy aroma with tropical and citric fruit together with light caramel malt. Flavor is smooth malty, rather bitter and lots of fruit like citric and tropical, some pine, a hint of marmalade, ripe fruit and smooth caramel malt. Fine and balanced in flavor all the way, nice body and long, pleasant bitter aftertaste. Nothing extreme, just incredible balanced and very mooreish.

tfredvik (1094) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2013
This is how an IPA should be. Period. It pours a hazy, pale amber body with a small, off-white head that reduces to a fully lasting thin layer after quite some time, and it laces the glass well. Very strong aroma with truckloads of hoppy notes. Itís mainly overripe tropical fruits and grapefruit, but it also has a solid malty backbone with caramel which makes this one smell more like a DIPA than your average super crisp IPA. The taste is moderate sweet and the slightly dry and very long-lasting finish is very heavy bitter. Itís a lovely, powerful and clean bitterness that lingers on and on. Amazing! The flavours are unusually strong, again with DIPA like overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit and malts in the back, but equally obvious are the resin and the juicy pine needles. Far in the back I get a whiff of alcohol. The mouthfeel is close to perfect, a lovely oily texture and medium carbonation, and the moderate carbonation enhances the crisp elements and makes sure that the overripe fruity notes doesnít take over. A winner!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

lusikka (6176) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 330 ml bottle @ Ale & Hop, Barcelona. Pours a deep cloudy amber golden colour with a white head. Aroma is very strong with strong citrusy hops, some herbal notes and mild sweetness. Flavour of pungent citrusy hops, floral notes, mild caramel, pale malts and really nice and round herbal notes. Very big citrusy hoppy finish with pale malts and only a little sweetness. Extremely high drinkability. Hop head?s delight.

kappldav123 (4795) - GERMANY - AUG 30, 2013
Thanks to Koelschtrinker for that one. Bottle looks a bit complex, but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, deep golden, nice head. Starts intense hoppy and very dry. Quite bitter background. Light fruity like grapefruit. Finish dry and metallically. A bit unbalanced. Okay.

Light golden, clear with a large and creamy white head. Aroma is pine and resinous hoppyness. Taste is very bitter, also with the same pine / resin that I found in the aroma. Pretty straight forward this IPA, rather drinkable but maybe a bit over the top with bitterness. Medium carbonation and body.
