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. Its no doubt that the hops are the focus, and the nelson and citra goes really well together. To bad its a limited brew.

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!

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 l, 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 Im 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 l, 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, Im an ungrateful bastard).

Sigmund (7315) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2012
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 l & Vinstove in Bergen.

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!

I really like the oaty smoothness combined with the fruity hops. A balanced IPA, not too strong, so you wont have to settle for one. Or two.

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Pours light golden with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is very hoppy with a tropical theme dominated by peach, as well as honey, sweet citrus and notes of flowers and fresh herbs and mint(?). Medium body, with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Flavour is very bitter with grapefruit and orange peel, notes of yeast and spicy pepper as well caramel and honey on a good malt backbone. Finish is very dry with a nice long hoppy orange peel. A very drinkable, really refreshing and astoundingly nice brew.
