On tap @ Bergen Ølfestival. Pours golden with a creamy head. Aroma is sweet tropical hops with peaches and mango, as well as orange and citrusy notes. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is hoppy with peaches, apricots and orange peel, and a nice roasted malt backbone with toffee. Medium bitter finish.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This refined IPA offers peach skins and various tropical fruit atop silky honeyed malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the shiny pale amber.
-Hop character is more aromatic and flavorful than it is bitter.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-The resinous hop bitterness creates pleasing balance.
-This may not be as intense as most West Coast-style IPAs, but it is beautifully rendered and perhaps more drinkable than most. Which is what matters, right?

Growler from the brewery.
