Dark amber colour, small off-white head. Overriped tropical fruits in the nose and some pine needles. Medium-bodied. Caramel, citrus, piney hops. Some "fermentation remains". A bit jammy. Ok but slightly homebrewish.

Cloudy amber body with a small, long-lived, off-white head that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma that is dominated by a solid malt base while the hops are unusually faint for an IPA. In addition to the dominating caramel, I find citrus, tropical fruits, and burnt sugar in the back. Quite strong flavour of caramel, slightly overripe tropical fruits, orange marmalade, and citrus. Light sweet taste with a rather heavy bitter and long-lasting finish. Medium body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. A nice one, but a bit more hops would be nice.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Holmlia, Oslo]
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Bergen Storsenter. A warm golden body with a slight haze. Clingy lacing, filmy layer. A bit restrained ripe citrus nose. Blended taste of spruce, orange and peaches followed by a bittersweet fruity finish. Fine bodied. Nice and refreshing. (Hotel room, Bergen 04.10.2017).

33cl bottle at Anno, Ålesund. Pours slightly hazy amber with a modest, off-white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma; peaches, pine, malt and other herbs. Medium sweet with medium flavour intensity and bitterness. Nothing special, but certainly drinkable. lmojoh (1234) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017

0.33l bottle. This one pours is cloudy dark caramel golden colored body with a medium sized off-white head - a nice amount of dots. It smells slightly earthy, lots of dark caramel and a little sweet fruitiness. Doesn’t smell bad this. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and it’s just below, not quite below average on the carbonation. Tastes really old. Very sweet, yet vegetal bitter. Super earthy, dry caramel. Like a old English bitter - just a bit harder. Quite a lot of bitter marmalade jam in the finish. It works causes i really wanted a beer right about now, won’t be buying or recommending this. 05.07.2017 Itzjerm (3288) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Bottle in Norway. Very malty backbone. Aroma is hop candy. Flavor is malty hop candy as well. Hoppy malt forward balance. A tasty beer. I enjoy the balance they have found with this one. Thin fading head.
