UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Draft sampler pour at Face to Face Beerfest ( f22.org ): Still not what I was expecting from IPA, but eyes recently opened during blind judging as well. Brewing process has been cleaned up here, I suppose. Slight lemony with green onion on molasses & sassafrass, and sweet malt aroma. All this present and balanced in flavor, along with bitter hop flavors that are pronounced but not coarse (along lines of green onion and tire) Medium-lean. Clean finish. Appears amber with eighth-inch linen head of tightest bubbles. I think it’s a neutral ale yeast with complexity from malt bill.
I like to support local, and I like the label artwork. This sample pour was muddy apricot colored with wide halo white head. A slight malt aroma, yet disappointingly little by way of hop aroma, nearly a leaf-like note. Flavor is led by caramel malt and some earthy and pine hop flavors, and possibly British-yeast derived earthy tones. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, without a drying out in finish.
Amber colour. Fruity hop nose - orchard fruits and berries, though indistinct. Fruity, sweet malts. Bright and tasty...good mid 2000s-type IPA. Rune (13350) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2017
650ml bottle bough at Vinmonopolet Langnes. A solid pearl white head to a cloudy amber coloured body. Clingy lacing. Floral hops on the nose, mid-sweet. Blended malt-fruity flavours of caramel, grapefruits and apricot. Mid-sweet bitter ending. Fine depth and well balanced. Nice.

Canned from World Market. Dense hazy amber in color with a sizable head. Lightly sweet hop nose with some floral notes. Bitter and malty up front. Bready malts seem to overpower the hops. A little bit of a metal twang to it. Drinkable, but not a really hoppy IPA. DuffMan (10596) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2017
Can. Cool comic book/super hero label art! Medium orange with an off white head. Lightly sweet malts, orange peel and peach, moderate bitterness. Nice enough. stevoj (5425) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Can at PKWY - Henderson;. Medium amber pour with slight foamy head. Aroma is gentle hoppiness with a big malty backbone. Malts drive the taste, caramel flavors, mildly sweet, small hops bite at the end.

Skummer ukontrollert selv ved forsiktig helling i (selvsagt)helt rent glass.Etter at skumtoppen la seg ble ølet bortimot flatt.
Smaksmessig var dette et surt øl (ikke humlebittert).Middels fylde og skuffene opplevelse.
