Flaske 500ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Gyldengul. Veldig høyt kritthvitt luftig skum. Litt lacing. Varer. Lettskyet. Kjempegod fruktig aroma. Plommer & fersken. Smaken ananas & plommer. Litt tørr etter hvert. Balansert. ABS (1129) - Stokke, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Sørlandssenteret. Golden. Some white head. Resin and grapefruit nose. Thick, oily body and low carbonation (true to style). Grapefruit, pine, resin, citrus and some malt aroma. Bitter. Only just an IIPA, wouldn’t be surprised if it was classified as an IPA. Good though. IPAgutten79 (961) - Skui, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Gylden farge med medium høyde på skummet. Aroma av appelsinskall, sitrus, grapefrukt, humle og vagt av malt. Smaken er grapefrukt, furu, appelsin og malt. Flust med humle, dette er en bitter sak! Bitterheten sitter i lenge i ettersmaken, sammen med smaken av appelsin. Medium konsistens. tmrmwel (2310) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a creamy finger thick off white head. Aroma is hoppy with bitter with citrusy orange peel, and grapefruit, spruce, blackcurrant and elderberries, and some tropical whiffs, as well as a nice malty back with mango and apricots. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter with pine and resin, lemon peel and grapefruit, as well as some malty toffee, honey and some butterscotch. Lingering citrusy bitter finish with orange peel, lemon and grapefruit. sfukut0mi (20) - - JUL 5, 2014
500ml bottle, Bangkok, wishbeer. Hazy golden color, banana aroma was appeared first, after that barley scent had came. Caramel note, too.

0.5 flaske fra polet. Hvit skum som varer. Masse humle aroma. Smsk av malt humle sitrus. Veldig bitter. God IPA UXO (1896) - CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with minimal head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal spotty lacing. Nose is tropical fruit, low piney and floral hops, caramel malt. Taste leads with sweet caramel malt, giving way to a lingering hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body, slick, with low sustained carbonation.
This seems to be my third stale IPA of the evening. No buttered popcorn, but the hops in the nose were quite muted. The taste is pleasantly bitter, though. Not convinced it was all that fresh, but not bad. VincentL (287) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Mondial 2014, mon coup de cœur du festival, une double IPA franche, houblon tranchant et hyper present, un peu de caramel, délicieux (et tres amer) Splitenz (388) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Hop galore. Both aroma and taste is one of well balanced ingridience. Love the pines and citrus which tignled my nose. Good strength ABV and the thirst quenching pilsner malts. A real treat from way down under.
Bottle, Grünerløkka Brygghus. jmgreenuk (10322) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 6, 2014
Tap at the Mikkeller Bar, Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium to light amber with a super thin whispy head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a big alcoholic resin spice hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. The hop bucket really fell into this brew. Well controlled alcohol and nice and smooth. Lots of flavour and nothing dominates.
