Very Nice IPA, pours dark gold/orange, Thin frothy head that does last but dissipates initially. Definitely citrus dominant on the nose, Taste buds shout out orange peel, tangerine and grapefruit marmalade with also sweeter tones of peach and other stone fruit. Lingering grapefruit bitterness and increasing levels of resin each sip.
Pleasant mouthfeel from biscuit and caramel malt.
In summary though Grapefruit/orange prevails and is sort of an in between a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin and a Brewdog Elvis Juice. I like it a lot, a very nice IPA, perhaps 65-70 IBU john44 (3062) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017

Malty; sweet malts, caramel. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance; Not extreme. Sweet fruity malty throughout with balancing citrusy hops. Dry bitter finish. Good IPA! (2011-11-05)

Bottle from Booths in Ripon. Pours cloudy amber with a frothy cream head. Nice hoppy aroma of pine and marmalade. The taste is spicy with lots of resinous pine flavour. Some sweet marmalade in there too. Easy drinking and very enjoyable. Salwal (486) - GERMANY - JAN 9, 2017
From the Can poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours clear amber with huge off white head that lasts some time. Nose is ripe tangerine, some pine, generaly orange fruit. Taste is grassy herbal less fruity in the taste, quite bitter. Finish is prolonged herbal bitterness and kind of creamy mouthfeel... Pretty good... hawthorne00 (3904) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2017
Can. Pale amber with an off white head. 3+ Indelicate aroma of blood orange, lime, bread, pine, medicinal spices. Moderately sweet with light bread. Light bodied despite the hearty flavours. Citrus and a fair whack of pine. Clean which accentuates the firm to strong bitterness. I do like an IPA that whilst not boozy feels like 6.5% is a strong beer. Also one that does not entirely give away the heritage of the style for the latest American foofaraw.

From one of my top brewers comes this insane palate wrecker of an IPA now available here in Oz so I don’t have to bug Norwegian friends to send a few across. At just on chilled and into a snifter. Not much life displayed as the wide mouth ring-pull frees from the can. Orange amber and jut shy of bright. Strong note of vine clippings, nettles, pine cones and sappy resin on the nose. Lifeless otherwise with no head bar a ring of white on the meniscus. Extremely piney and brash, almost abrasive on the palate. This one is for seasoned drinkers and no nancy newcomers. Bitter as the gates of hell and lasting. Camphorous with bitter gourd and bitter melon, grapefruit and blood orange in abundance. Underneath the carnage it is grainy with a lovely, if not hidden, toasted malt profile. Body is light, alcohol has a bit of heat, but overall it kicks far above its weight. Insane. Took a good half hour to down and I actually thought I was rushing. Sadly one was enough, but this was IPA on steroids. Unique.

Pours cloudy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and citrusy fruity. Fruity, yeasty and peachy. Dry and bitter into a lasting fruity finish MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Overripe tropical fruits, mango, bitter orange coming up, pine, resin. Hazy, dark gold, medium, creamy, off-white head. Medium bitter. More bitter citrus fruits, resin, pine, more tropical fruits, turning very bitter, soft carbonation, medium to full bodied, bittersweet finish. Decent IPA, quite intense throughout. Can from Whole Foods Market, Kensington. Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Pours dark orange with head that quickly disappears. Aroma is blackcurrant and pine with orange citrus. Taste is pine and strong distinct orange zest, like oranges have been used. Sweet first impression that ends quite drying with woody aftertaste. A very distinct and memorable IPA dambor (680) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2016
Pours dark orange with small head. Aroma: nice aroma of oranges coupled with some flowers and naphthalene (mosaic hops?). Taste: nice flour flavor with some oranges. Very good.
