yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. A lightly unclear one, golden in color and topped by a decent, off-white head. Some lacings. Citrus, some peaches and in general tropical fruits in the aroma. Not much maltyness going on. The flavor has a faint sweetness and a nice bitterness, as well as the same fruityness found in the aroma. Dryins, medium body. Lasting finish with fruityness and bitterness. Tasteful, quenching and easy drinkable.131029

Meilby (9451) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Draught @ Haand Ølfestival 2014

Rune (9239) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Small glass, draught at Bar Bowling Førtito in Sarpsborg. Cloudy amber coloured body. Dissipating beige head. Aroma is fruity and honey sweet. Fresh flavours of tropical fruits and smooth honeyed sweetness followed by a twist of dried fruity bitterness towards the ending. Soft in the mouth. Fine bodied. Well made with splendid drinkability (Tour de Østfold, RBNG 15.02.2014).

mcberko (9220) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
On tap at UNA Bryggeri, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose is quite hoppy for a pale ale, with stone fruits and biscuity malt to back. Flavour follows accordingly, with tropical fruits, resinous hops and biscuity malt. Well-balanced and quite a bit more interesting than most pales. Great stuff.

MartinT (8492) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Tap, Henrik’s, Bergen, 27/10/14. Heaped, slightly burnished honey amber. Bright resinous aroma awash with sticky hop cone, corking fresh Rubicon guava and lychee, mint and strawberry pushing a 9. Beautiful crisp stewed hop flavour with grapefruit, honey, peach, dragon fruit and curry leaf-like impressions reminiscent of old school Punk. Honeycomb freshness begging a session. The best Norwegian beer I’ve tasted.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2013
On tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus, Mathallen. Lovely hoppy nose, herbal, mouthwatering. Light body, does not quite kive up to the excpectations from the aroma. A bit dull, but with a decent bitterness. Not at all bad for a new brewery.
