COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Dark brown-amber pour into thick frothy tan head that quickly dissipates into sticky lacing that melts into a pool of swirling foam. Aroma of piney hops, toasted biscuit, and thick caramel. Initial flavor of grapefruit and piney hop that quickly fades away into a sweet roasty toffee finish in which the sweetness of butterscotch-caramel candy dominates.

pours deep orange like golden, slightly hazy with fluffy white head. Aroma: moderate intense citrusy, pine, resin like hop profile and intense malt character which takes on bread, toast, biscuit...flavor follows aroma: intense malt character, with notes of bread, toast, biscuit and hint of caramel, supported with resin, pine, citruses like hop character. hop bitterness is very high, hidden with full malt backobone....finish is dry, bitter...bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Body is full, texture oily, carbonation is medium. Alcohol is perfectly hidden, but 10% knocks you...

Jestem pod ogromnym wrazeniem. Niesamowity zapach. pelno cytrusow, pachnie jak sok ze swiezo wyciskanych grejfrutow, pomaranczy, pomelo, kazdego koloru. Smak totalnie ciezki, moc tych ze wlasnie cytrusow, oliwa z oliwek, grzyby kurki, maslo. Niesamowicie tlustawe i oleisto-zywiczne jest to piwo z atakujacymi chmielami z kazdej strony. Ciezkie jest niestety tak ciezkie jak ciezarowka zaladowana imigrantami Syryjskimi. Alkohol spory choc nie wyczuwalny to nieco uderza po glowie. Doskonale esencjonalne i tresciwe piwo. Jedyny drobny minusik to mala piana. Ale za to osadu tyle co piachu w piaskownicy. 100 IBU doskonale tu lagodzi az 5 rodzajow slodow. Doskonale zroznicowane, niemal ideal stylu jak dla mnie.

Draught at Marktzicht, Amersfoort. Hazy dark orange with a small white head. Full body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with subtle fruity sweetness. Pine, tropical fruits, malts, caramel and spices. Tasty!

beer-yum (1782) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 13, 2017
Pine and malt aroma in a dirty orange brown pour. Hoppy balance is covered by a big toffeee caramel malt body which is sustained through the finish. Surprisingly easy to down - dangerously so. Probably better described as a TIPA though...

CurlyJoe (255) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2017
Cloudy orange with almost zero white head, lots of sediment. Big marmalade fruit aroma, citrus. Sweet taste, once again marmalade. Bitter fruit as you expect, however sweet fruit character is probably stronger than bitterness. Massive bitter hop hit, then smooths to allow lots of other hop flavour to come through. Booze is there, but not overpowering, compliments other flavours. Great beer for sipping, suprisingly refreshing. Sharp on the palate.

Svesse (8616) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2017
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, hoppy, slightly vinous nose with notes of treacle-toffee, resin, grapefruit, caramel, dried fruit, dates, pine needles, rye bread, some chocolate and liquorice. Malty, hoppy taste with resin, burnt rubber, toffee, dates, rye bread, chocolate, burnt sugar, orange peel, liquorice, tropical fruit and a slightly fiery finish with a generous resiny bitterness and a touch of alcohol. More than medium body, quite sweet. A bit boozy and slightly unbalanced, but really tasty with a generous hop presence. Very nice.

eljebi (98) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 30, 2017
Gruesa versión del estilo, casi un barley wine multigrano lupulado con ganas. Maltosa, entre dulce, cereales y madera en boca, con un amargor resinoso acompañado de aromas a mango, piña y cítricos. Me gusta, me entretiene, pero no sé en qué estilo encuadrarla!!

kaserov (805) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 25, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media tirando a mínima. Espesa en boca. Aroma a caramelo, mucha malta, ligeros cítricos (naranja, sobre todo) y tropicales (mango), así como resina. En boca es amarga prácticamente desde que toca tu lengua. Malta y cítricos se dan la mano pero ambos quedan rápidamente en un segundo plano debido a ese elevado amargor que continúa en postgusto. Seca. También se capta algo de alcohol, más en sabor que en aroma. Otra cerveza de Nøgne Ø a la cual no encuentro gracia alguna (y ya van dos de tres).
