Great tropical hop aroma and deep amber color. The taste is more tropical hops with mango and raspberries shining through. The malt is there to back it up but doesn't get in the way of the hop profile. Really good.

16 fl oz (475 ml) can at home, canned on 01/10/2014 (4.5 months old). Unclean amber-copper color with nice light frothy off-white head that lasts thin until the end. Very nice aroma, hoppy and malty at the same time. Light floral, pine, tropical and citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange, and sweet caramel malty scent too. Taste is the same. Some malty sweetness and a lot of hoppy bitterness! Very nice! Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. One of my favorite IPAs!

Pours like pure liquid amber. Surprisingly deep amber actually. Wonderful dense hop flavours and taste. Tickles the nose this one. A carnival of candy, flowers, fruits and the like in the mouth, followed by a terrific clawing burning on the way down the throat. Leaves a sweet citrus effervescence on the "burp" as Oz Clarke would say.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got a bit surprised of how copper it is, but it pours copper, almost like a scotch ale. Aroma is straight up citrus, a lot of tropical fruit, but also some nuttyness to it. The taste is super balanced, the 99 IBU in a 6.2% is not even really dominant, the malt body is different but somehow almost perfect to this 6.2% beer, I am usually against speciality malts in my IPA/Pale Ales, but this one did it way better than any other I’ve seen.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Haandfestivalen 2014. Mørk gylden med medium høyde på skummet. Aromaen er furu, malt, tropiske frukter og humle. Samme i smaken. Søtlig først, så fin og bitter i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens.
