September 12th, 2014 - None’s Double IPA comes my way via Japan, where I purchased it at a reputable bottle shop near Gakushuin University. The traditional two red dots on the logo have been cleverly replaced with kanji, harkening me back to February when I absconded with this brew back to the States. Muddy and bubbly, this brew looks like liquefaction of soil in an earthquake, rumbling with sediment and gases. And the aroma is full of vitality, leading with a torrent of chocolate, but accompanied with rivulets of fig, blueberry, cocoa, pine boughs and raspberry jam. The whole effect reminds me of dark and creamy dubbel beers of days gone by. The aroma is also full of vim and vigor, with a spice and kick up front, and a select, mild hop dimension. Those bubbles I spotted before are keen to skate across the tongue, ensuring even distribution of the flavors, which are somewhat less complex than the aroma (not surprising, I suppose, given the science of the olfactory), absent of some of those subtler notes on the nose. nybol (2371) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2016
En god humlet IPA. Der er fin balance mellem de enkelte elementer i øllen, ikke helt ovre i amerikanske IPA’er, men alligevel. caribou43 (1213) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2016

Nøgne Ø Dobbel IPA is the first Nøgne Ø beer I tasted back in 2008. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Murky amber chestnut brown in colour. Aroma/flavour was malty, bready, some fruits like raisins and figs. Strong caramel and toffee aroma and flavour with some hops character still remaining but more towards resin from pine. Very rounded in body, medium and very easy to drink.
500ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Murky brown in colour with a large long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy, sweet, lots of caramel malts, some alcohol. Flavour is warming, lots of sweet caramel, grapefruit citrus, alcohol. Warming mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hot, lots of caramel. Nice, alcohol never overpowers this. Fairly good balance.

Rated on 5-07-2009 (Bottle from Crown Liquors in Carmel, IN) This beer’s Apperance is a frothy, fizzy ivory head with a long retention, slow rising carbonation, and a reddish orange brown body hue. The Aroma is malty, citrus and pine hops, caramel, and fruity. The Taste is citrus, pine and grapefruit hops, malty, fruity and bitter. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is most quaffable, is a hopheads delight, and worth trying. A little bit too bitter tasting for my liking. Iphonephan (7327) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2013
