From bottle on board Stavangerfjord 11.07.17. Golden amber. Fine white head and lacing. Aroma of pale malt, caramel malt, American fruits, marmalade and ripe tropical fruits. Similar taste, with medium bitterness. Full mouthfeel. Bitterness and caramel malt is lingering on. Good drinkability. Well-balanced. daje (4436) - NORWAY - APR 24, 2017
Bottle, august 22nd 2016. Clear golden body with a lively overcarbonated white head. Aroma of hay, grass, sweet malt. Taste of caramel, grass, malt. Harsh bitterness. Quite boring, lacking the freshness of an ipa. bbertels (505) - NORWAY - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml. Amber colour, head both frothy and creamy, uneven. Smells of oranges, honey, caramel. Taste is rich and some of the hoppiness is crisp and bitter - almost verging on menthols! Nice but lacks a bit of balance. Cimbasso (975) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Sampled from a bottle. Amber colour with a creamy white head. Absence of aroma. Taste has a caramel sweetness to the malts. Rather chocolatey for an IPA. Hoppy finish which is quite bitter, almost metallic. This is curious IPA which is not entirely successful.

Gylden brun noe tåkete med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter noe sydhavsfrukt, trevirke, blomster og noe sitrus. Middels til lett. Lett fruktig søtlig smak. Middels bitterhet. Jyrsa (900) - - APR 1, 2016
Bottle from OSL airport tax free. Clear light brown with a strong head. Nose of caramel, blackcurrant (!), malt and something odd, like vegetables. Slightly bitter with same blackcurrant, hay and other citrusy notes. Light body with low carbonation. Ok but by no means stunning. Hansen (8612) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2015
Light amber coloured and clear, almost. Has a white head. Sweet aroma with some odd hoppy notes. Flavor starts sweet, sugar, moderate bitter finish.
