Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2011
0.355l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a nice slightly hazy golden/light orange body with a solid creamy head. Aromas strong on the sweet fruity hops, some citrus and pine. Mild and inviting aroma. Mouth feel; Roasted malts, a hint watery, but not to much, medium carbonated, medium to thin bodied. Decent fruity and bitter ending. davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
On tap. Good IPA. Aromas of grass and caramel. Taste is bitter, with a long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy head. bseribeer (128) - Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Aroma is hints of floral, and citrus, especially grapefruit. Pours a hazy dark golden or light amber. Light, white, foamy head which dissipates rather quickly. Taste is of medium hops build, less than your typical IPA, but delicious nonetheless. Runs smooth through the palate with a dry finish. Overall, I would recommend this to those who aren’t quite ready for a full bodied IPA. Not a knock on goose, as this is a great drinking IPA. baraciisch (3237) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Golden in color... Aroma is faint, citrusy hops... Flavor is fairly light, piney and citrus hop bitterness... Tastes more like a pale.. Okay at best dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Hoppy aroma. Clearish gold in color. Sweet with a light hop balance. A nice "gateway" IPA.

Hazy golden with a small, white head.
Pretty sweet and creamy aroma.
Sweet and malty flavour with a medium bitterness. Some tropical fruits. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Aroma is good, full of hops.. abrasively in fact. Tastes more citrusy and less hoppy than I imagined. A little thin. Very good IPA. Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2010

12 ounce bottle courtesy of thetomG (Secret Santa Winter 10). Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium sized frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. The aroma is loaded with floral hop notes and also has notes of citrus hops, caramel and nutty notes. The taste is bitter leafy and earthy hops, some nutty notes, and a faint citrus hop and caramel finish. Medium bodied. Quite nice.
