3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a small white head. Nose is piney syrup tones, cacti, leaves and hints of grass and citrus. Taste is pine, citrus peel, syrup, grainy caramel and hints of grass, herbs and peaches in the back. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Another American IPA which was probably quite different (and most probably quite a bit better) before it undertook the long journey to Bergen via lots of stops. Still very nice, though.

Good IPA. Orange and cloudy with citrus aroma. Flavor is a bit unbalanced towards bitterness, but I think that’s what they were going for. Good, but too many better IPAs out there for me to rate higher.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Murky orange and amber. Malt hop citrus aroma. Not a lot of the citrus makes it through to the flavor. Pretty bitter.

On tap. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of pine and citrus with a nice grain backbone. Flavor has notes of pine and grass that grows to a bit of resin with a grain backing.
