It smells of a dry milktank. Color is unclear coppertone with a white head. Taste dominsted as supposed by hops. Cutrus, grapefruit, herbs and caramell. Aftertaste of pink grapefruit and goosberries. A refreshing and longlasting aftertaste thst’s not as bitter as supposed.

ABS (714) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Batch 041, BBF 04 2016. Pours quite unclear, copper to brown colour. A couple of centimeters of thick, foamy white head. Strong nose. Pine, resin, floral, orange, citrus, grapefruit, malt. Some alcohol and mint. Hint of hay and bread. Quite complex nose. Very soft carbonation. A bit gritty mouth feel. Very thick and sticky body. Strong pine flavour, with lots of grapefruit as well. Citrus, malt, mint, grain. Very, very bitter. A lot more bitterness than in Nøgne Ø’s version of this beer, 2 Captains. I also feel like this one’s got more flavours than 2 Captains, and it definitly feels more complex. 2 Captains seems more balanced though. Both are very good beers!

bergstaden (1711) - Røros, NORWAY - APR 28, 2015
Amber with off white head - Good hop aroma with fruity notes and hints of pine - Good malt to support the hops that has pine and some herbal notes - The hops goes inot a long dry hoppy and herbal finish - This was good

tfredvik (1435) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 15, 2015
Finally, the original! Slightly hazy medium amber body with a small, frothy, beige, short-lived head. Hoppy and strong aroma of tropical fruits, lots and lots of peach and plenty of caramel to back up the hops. Strong flavour of tropical fruits, grapefruit, caramel and... eh... gooseberries? I haven’t tasted gooseberries in 30 years, but my brain insists that it detects gooseberries in here, and who am I to argue? The taste is moderate sweet and the long finish is heavy bitter, almost a bit harsh. Mid-bodied, dry and with a soft carbonation. A good one, but I prefer the clone.

tmrmwel (1316) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
Bottle, batch 33. Pours amber, with a finger thick rocky head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with tropical notes of apricots, pineapples, mango and lychee, as well as spicy notes of spuce and forest, and some roasted malts with bread and toffee. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter as hell (pun intended) hops, with resin, pine and grapefruit, notes of apricots and spicy tropical fruits. Lingering bitter finish.

ClubGonzo (4753) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange-hued amber body with a tiny, bubbly head with a rather short lifespan. Aroma is pine, spruce, grass, red fruits, rubber bands, caramel and hints of wet leaves. Taste is wet grass, earthy leaves, caramel, bitter herbs, spruce, pine and hints of syrup and some faint rubbery notes. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Apart from being fairly under-carbed (which really doesn’t suit it), this beer seems a bit flat also in its grassy hop composition and doesn’t really ring my bell at all. The recipe might be the original, but this brew is no match at all for the outstanding Two Captains from Nøgne Ø.

tandembrauer (605) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 On tap @ Cardinal. Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma of fir needles, caramel, citrus, "cat piss" - all in... Some sweet taste, followed by a long lasting bitter aftertaste.
