God lukt av humle. En skikkelig IPA. Fyldig smak av humle, med hint av malt. Tørr ettersmak. Lang smak av humle. Anbefales!

Pours a orange copper color a bit hazy with nice head retention. Aroma is sweet honey candy malt. Taste is sweet honey malty citrus and some mild spices medium to syrupy mouth feel. Not bad but a bit sweet for me.

My Bottom Line :
Earthy hop resins and sleek caramel are met by tropical fruit notes in this solid, hopped-up strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the clear amber translucence.
-Carbonation is prickly, which helps make the mouthfeel feel lighter, more comfortable.
-This is not the most complex of offerings from this brewery, but it is very flavorful nonetheless.
-You could easily say this was a hoppy Barley Wine, or a quite malty Double IPA. Flavorful strong ale is almost more appropriate...

Orange cloudy pour from pint bottle on back deck. Apricot and fruity peach taste. Hoppy and smooth. Pine and boozy. N love it

# 3434 ersma: mit diesem bier hat Jan Halvor Fjeld 2010 die norwgischen hobbybrau-meisterschaften gewonnen. nun wird es in großem stil bei nønge ø gebaraut. das ist doch super, sowas. orange-bernsteinfarben, trübe mit mittelviel recht stabilem schaum. der geruch ist süßlich und harzig mit fruchtigen anflügen. tannennadeln, grapefuit und passionsfrucht. der antrunk ist bitter, fruchtig uns harzig. grapefruit, zitrus, tannennadeln udn herbe kräuter, sehr vielschichtig. die mitte ist einersiets bitter mit harzigen tönen, andererseits hat sie aber auch fruchtig-süße aromen von passionsfrucht und orange. der abgang ist bitter-fruchtig. orange, tannennadeln, nasses heu und etwas zitrus. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: würde so ein bier die deutschen hobbybrau-meisterschaften gewinnen können? schwer zu sagen. würde eine namhafte deutsche brauerei das dann in größeren mengen brauen? bestimmt nicht. da ist hierzulande noch viel arbeit notwendig. ein sehr komplexes und aromareiches bier, das sehr ausgewogen dahierkommt. unbedingt probierenswert. 12,13,12,12,12,12 - 12,15 - 19/

This has some seriously amazing hops, and that’s perhaps it’s weakness as I feel the hops are so prominent that it takes up a bit too much space. It feels nice and creamy and tastes of banana and vanilla.

Lowenbrau (3982) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 14, 2013
500ml bottle. NIce citrus, caramel and spicy aromas. Pours murky orange with frothy off white head, persistent, good lacework. Medium body, oily, sticky texture, average carbonation. Taste is citrus, some earthy, fruity, some caramel. Alcohol well integrated, not too sweet for a 2IPA. Really enjoyable.

The aroma is fruity. The flavor is wonderful and also fruity with a little tone of caramel. Not too dry. Long aftertaste. Even a really good Double IPA. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

The hops assault you the second you either smell or taste it. But this is not just a simple hop monster, this has a fruity kick. If you have ever owned a cricket bat the smell of linseed oil come through as well. This is a serious beer, this beer could look after itself in a bar fight.

frisk god syrlig duft av citrusfrukter. Lite skum langs kant. Gulbrun dunkel farge. Frisk og nydelig litt surlig smak av citrusfrukter. Leskende og godt.
