3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy medium amber body with a small, off-white head. Very strong aroma of slightly overripe tropical fruits and caramel. Strong flavour of slightly overripe tropical fruits, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Moderate sweet taste that is accompanied by a quite heavy bitterness in the long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation, some dryness in the aftertaste (despite the very long-lasting sweet taste). A very nice one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.4%. Deep orange colour, moderate to low off-white head. Fairly strong aroma of sweetish malts and citrussy hops, hints of orange marmalade and pine. The flavour is well hopped throughout, but could still be called "well balanced", it is not extreme for a double IPA. The malty base is sufficient, but not too sweet. Very drinkable.
