On tap @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Hazy pale golden color with creamy head.
Fresh aromas from the hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Great smooth body! The oats gives a really pleasant rich body, but not too much. It’s no doubt that the hops are the focus, and the nelson and citra goes really well together. To bad it’s a limited brew. BottleHound (156) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2012
On tap at Melkebaren, Sandnes. Golden beer with white head. Amazing aroma with tons of citrus and other tropical fruits. Flavour is full of nice hops and grapefruit. Bitter, but softer than most other IPAs. Extremely refreshing! stoffen (23) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2012
A really hoppy Oat IPA. Super fruity, citrus aroma, A good bitter aftertaste. Plesant body and easy to drink. A very good IPA. Odland (139) - NORWAY - MAR 19, 2012
Sampled @ Lervig. Golden color and a creamy head. Distinct notes of tropical fruits derived from Nelson Sauvin, really showcasing the hop . A velvety smooth body despite not having any crystal malts in it. This ale is all about the hops and the oats! Each sip invites another. Could drink this all night.

In short: A bright, sharp and refreshing blond IPA Very good

How: Tap at Henrik Øl, Bergen Norway
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is bursting with tropical fruits, grapefruits and some cat piss (me suspect Citra again). A nice fresh bouquet of fruits which has been pissed on by a cat and I’m enjoying it. Taste is crisp, just enough pale malts, light toastiness, plenty of fresh tropical fruits, an avalanche of bitter white grapefruits, a citric bite of lemon zest. Razor sharp bitterness. Very clean finish. The only slight problem with this beer is the excessive soda-pop-like carbonation that makes it hard to keep the beer in your mouth. This is one I enjoyed thoroughly. The first of many beers I had at Henrik Øl, I went back three times to this pub, great beer selection and one of the best service I ever had, my highly knowledgeable waiter will never know how much I appreciated his dedication to making each of my visit to the pub memorable. (not very much, I’m an ungrateful bastard).
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar. Golden colour, creamy white head. Distinct hoppy aroma, notes of pine neeedles, tropical fruits, citrus and crushed gooseberries, a hint of tomcat. Fairly light bodied for its strength. The flavour is full of luscious hops throughout, notes of pine needles and grapefruit. The bitterness is solid, but the oats still lend a touch of smoothness to the beer. Definitely moreish! *Correction to description: Might also be made available at Henrik Øl & Vinstove in Bergen. saxo (19522) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2013
Sample @ CBC. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are fruits, flowers, caramel, wood, malt and hops. gunnar (9696) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2012
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy pale golden with a thin white film on top. Aroma of Mr. Nelson, passion fruit and tropical fruit juice, lovely, quite close to the catpiss borderline. Taste is fresh, solid, crisp, hoppy smack in my face, good carbonation elevate the hops to the frontrow of the show, more herbal and peppery hops towards the end, spearmint. Dry and clean mouthfeel. Me like, a lot!
