Aroma is a bit unusual for IPA with ripe fruits, peaches, biscuits, bready malt and just some hoppy notes. Also hints of resin. Flavour has some hops, biscuits, fruits, glue and resin. The hop profile is unusual, it just stays in the front but does not penetrate much through to the finish or aftertaste. Quite flat for an IPA.
Trockener, etwas laffer Hopfenbeginn. Zitrusnoten, Reis. Sehr trockene Holznoten sind permanent vorhanden, eine angenehme Hopfigkeit kann kaum durchdringen. Mild bitterer Ausklang, erst im Nachgeschmack stärker bitter mit angenehm grasigen Noten. OK. 10/8/9/9/9/9

Bottle from Olbutikken. Slight haze on this amber beer. Good white head. Creamy pale malt, a little raw grain. Hops are piney with mild orange marmalade. Finishes soft and dry with a mildly bitter aftertaste, Alright but a little too malt led for me.
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty - lightly grainy and caramel sweetish aroma, light tropical fruitiness, piney and some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, sweetish and malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, some caramel, light fruitiness and some piney and grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, sweetish with caramel, some piney - grapefruit hoppyness. Caramel sweetish IPA. OK but nothing really special - could use more hoppyness (and less caramel).
