Hazy orange with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit. Flavor is quite sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish. 110611

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy amber color; small creamy head. Very nice aroma, mellow, with sweet caramel, candies, and fruity hops (apricot jam, pineapple). Strong body; sweet caramel flavor; the hopping is resiny first of all (you can feel the resins gently attacking the tongue right after, with a light piney impression), then fruity too. The final gets a bit drier, with candi-like sweetish toffee and strong bitterness. Interesting.

rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Clear golden beer with a rich offwhite head. This is just the aroma I want from a DIPA. Fruity, hoppy and creamy. Citrus, grass, pineapple, mango, grapes, pear, pine, perfume notes, hay, lemongrass, whipped cream, vanilla notes. Hoppy grassy flavor, perfume, metal, citrus, grapefruit, pine, mango, citrus, pear notes, some pineapple, some warming alcohol. Long bitter fruity finish, pine, mango and apples, some hay and perfume. Wonderful beer, almost on the same level as Zombie Dust and other world class DIPA:s

mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
500mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours an opaque dirty orange with a big off-white head. Aroma of pungent grapefruit, citrus hops, caramel and a slight metallic note. Flavour is very bitter, with heaps of grapefruity hops above anything; a caramel malt backing is definitely there, but the grapefruit is so potent with bitterness - not terribly complex. Very pleasant, though the other Nøgne Ø double IPAs are superior, especially the brilliant #500.

Pale amber color, small white head, lace. Medium-bodied. Light front, sweetish exotic fruityness. Late, long lingering bitterness. A bit unbalanced, but has recognizable Nogne O finger prints.
