33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours hazy copper with almost no head. Maybe too cold... Typiical hoppy citrus flavored ipa. Not too bitter. Good but no cigar. Stuu666 (15301) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden amber, nose is light citrus, taste is bitter, sweet toffee. PsychoGunnar (201) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Red brown and clear with appalingly low foam levels. Strong hoppy aroma which unfortunately is very simple. Tastes mildly of vegetables, like a carbonated mixture of brussel sprouts, peas and broccoli. A quite anonymous IPA. Inbreak (6723) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2014
Old rating rerated 06.08.2014, 0,33l bottle @ FjordLine M/V Bergensfjord:MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, caramel malts, dried fruits, leafs, pine needles, sap, hops, grass. Taste is dry grassy, hops, leafs, pine needles, lawn, caramel malts, sap, bark, hints of dried fruits. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice enough.
My Bottom Line:
Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2014
Peach juice floats on top of wet caramelized cereals, as big bubbles succeed into promoting bitter resins and oranges in the finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty amber.
-This may be forgettable, but it’s still drinkable and nicely bitter.
-The caramel malts in this IPA point towards the 80s.
-This seems to have suffered from time or travel. But it’s well within it’s best by date...
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel, hops, and citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and straw, leading to a bitter finish. StilleStorm (1583) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2014
DWG; Pours clear, dark golden with a fading off-white head. Nose is malt, tropic fruit, floral and light pepper. Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter and somewhat lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to avarage. BeerViking (5133) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from Sola Vinmonopolet last year, pours dark amber with a clinging off-white head, plus marmalade and touches of honeydew melon and peach on the nose. Palate is initially rich, with caramel and fruity sweetness countered by very dry bitterness, but it doesn’t last, subsiding fairly rapidly to an acrid bitterness in the finish. Interesting, but not worth the money. Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket på Bergstua 28 Mar 13. Gyldenbrun. Pent kremaktig skum med litt lacing. God krydder- og fruktaroma. Mandariner. Smaken i samme retning. Litt mandler. Blir fort tørr & bitter med mange smaksnyanser. Tørket frukt & krydder.

Little thick head, quickly disappearing. Some spices and caramel/banana aroma. Taste is pour however. No length in mouth apart from some light bitterness. Not my favorite IPA.
