Foffern (1294) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a hazy orange color and an off-white-like, creamy foam head that looks nice. A somewhat cautious but fruity aroma of grapefruit, citrus and some dry hay. The taste is more sweet with hoppy notes of grapefruit, grass and pale malt. In the background there’s a form of boiled cabbage and diacetyl. Mouth feel is smooth, and the bitterness felt quite so powerful. A decent IPA that will satisfy anyone who loves hops. For me the beer is a little unbalanced, and there’s some off-flavours.

Bottle shared with Simonsen
Yellow, quite hazy, big white head. Smell of spice, tea, grapefruit, pineapple, some pine and light malts. Moderate sweet, quite clean, ends of with a medium bitter tail with spices and resins. Quite nice.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Lots of pine and spruce in here, additionally some citrus and fruity sweetness. Not really intense taste, including the comparatively restrained bitterness. Very drinkable though I miss some more flavour punch.

mkel07 (3666) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. In the massive range of IPA’s on the maker this one sits somewhere in the middle. Hoppy enough with pine and citrus aromas and a resinous mouthfeel and pine aftertaste.

Holmen1 (2766) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
Kveldens siste flaske delt med Ovesen, og for en avslutning på nok en vellykket bryggerikveld. Vidunderlig aroma og smak av citrus, citrus, citrus (og tropiske frukter). Ikke den minste antydning til furunål, kattepiss eller grønne epler. En ipa midt i blinken for min smak. Utseendet er det heller ingenting å utsette på.

Holmen2 (1221) - NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 07.10.14. Hazy golden. Foamy off-white head and lacing. Wonderful aroma of grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruits. Similarly fine and well-balanced taste. Bitter citrus in aftertaste.

TBone (12991) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle at Beer Hunters. Hazy yellow color, good white head. Citrus and mango in the nose, also orange peels. Medium-bodied. Flavor has citrus, orange peel. Suprisingly light for the abv. Ok.

Cunningham (4899) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2014
Nice unclear golden body with a solid white head. Nice lacing. Typical and fresh ipa aroma. Grapefruit hoppy and tropical fruity. The flavor are about the same. Really tasty and fresh IPA. Highly recommendable!

- Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Mango, pineapple and some citrus and grains in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full body with a average carbonation. Overall a fruity and refreshing IPA, but maybe a bit boring.

ClubGonzo (4230) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body, small white head. Nose is pale malts, grains, mild straw and hints of grass. Taste is red fruits, berries, straw, hints of pale malts and grass. Medium to light body and carbonation. Extremely boring "IPA," even for the British tradition.
