Hazy amber-orange beer with dense blonde head. Aroma has caramel, resin, grapefruit and strawberry. Flavor has grapefruit, bitterness and sweet malts. Palate is medium full and fluffly with bitterness. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste is quite sweet with caramel, with grapefruit, soap and slight alcohol. Pretty well balanced.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber-ish color with a fine tan head. Quite fruity aroma with a lot of citric hops. Also some weird notes there. Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. A bit unbalanced sweetness. Bready, hoppy, tropical and a bit medicinal flavor. This batch was not very inviting. Have had others before that were a lot better.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Halden, Norway]

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at UNA Bryggeri, pours a cloudy murky dark orange with a small beige head. Nose brings out lots of resinous hops and quite a lot of caramel bready malt as well. Flavour is on the sweet side, with cough syrup, candied fruits and resinous hops. A bit on the sweet, medicinal side of things. Kind of surprised to see such high ratings on this. It’s alright, but not my thing.

Veldig god smak. Dette er ikke siste gang dette ølet drikkes. God smak av humle og passe bittert. Passer utrolig god til måltid lett salt måltid som sau.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 mL on draught in bar. First thing you notice is the aroma, very fresh and hoppy, with orange body. Main element in taste is the bitterness, though it is very fresh, again. Given the intense hoppiness, more of a Double IPA to me than a traditional IPA.
