Copper, clear, beige head. Aroma of nutty, toasty malt with a little toffee, a woody earthy character, spicy hops. Flavor is similar, with a malty balance, a woody, spicy hop character (sortof Northern Brewer-like) and a light citrus note. Maltier than an American style IPA, with. different hop character. Interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from HWC. Pours a mostly cloudy deep copper color with a medium thick white head. A rich nose of caramel and fruity hops, some grapefruit. A rich fruity hop flavor, light yeast, something almost peppery, some candied fruit. Odd in some ways, very different than American IIPAs, more mellow and the hops don’t really shine in some ways. Still, drinkable and pretty nice.

Dark orange with white foam. Hop and malt aroma. More malt than I expected. Some sweetness. I don’t get any definable hops. Well balanced flavor. Malt, hops, some caramel, orange peel with a lingering bitter finish.

Pours a deep orange colour with a bunch of floaty bits I’m not too sure about. The aroma is fresh and hoppy, candied orange, grapefruit, with an undertone of caramel. The flavour reflects this to a t, ends on a semi dry candied citrus not that trails off until the next sip. Good stuff, not sure about the floaty bits though. . . .

Bottle. Cloudy amber beer with a strong whitish head. The aroma is malty and vinous, and the flavour is deeply sweet and roasted with plenty of hopped bitterness. Overall a really nice malty, roasted and bitter beer.

500ml bottle from Oslo Bar & Bowling. Small white head. Hazy orange body. Very hoppy aroma, fruity, pine, spices. Bitter finish. A good, rich IPA, perhaps a little too bitter for my taste.

Bottle @ home, thans benzai! Aroma is big bready malt and massive hops, fruity, herbal and spicy. Flavour is a big lasting bitterness fading from sweet fruity hops to spicy herbal hops. Long bready and caramel malt note, intermingling with the hops. Nice.
