One of Alvinnes three Hop Trilogy beers, this one with Columbus, at an IBU of 130. Medium thick, light yellowish head, amber colour. Powerful and pleasing aroma of grapefruit, peach, bread, orange zest, ginger, tonic water, lemon peel. Dry taste with refreshing citrus, quickly shifting to a long, complex, citrussy finish. Very good IPA but I would have enjoyed it more with the two other Hop Trilogies next to it for comparison.

Aroma is hoppy with fruits, some biscuits, pine needles and hints of caramel. Flavour is also rather hoppy with exotic fruits, pine needles and some caramel. Good!

2012-01-06. Hazy dark orange body, massive foamy off-white head. 3+ Bottle gushed a bit, it is quite carbonated. Earthy green leafy hops in the aroma, sort of musty funky character and mild citrus notes. Flavour is modestly bitter, interesting hop character, mild resiny touches, and the hop profile mixes with the yeast influence in an interesting fashion. Average plus bodied palate. Enjoyable but just okay. Bottle shared by Blankboy

Bottle, bought @ Bier Planet, Brussels.
Mild gusher. Pours muddy orange with a big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has good citric hops, mild metallic notes, soft crispy malts. Light apricot and pine. Soft estery. High carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of hops, citric, piney, grapefruit. Light bretty notes from the yeast. Good crisp malts and heavy citric (almost ashy) bitterness in the long finish. Nice. Best of the three.
