Bomber. Appearance is a hazy rusted orange and gold color with a half-inch of off-white foam. Strong floral hops and tropical fruit in the aroma with a bit of caramel. The flavor starts out with aggressive vegetal hops bitterness leading to some pineapple, grapefruit, mint and caramel malt notes. Also a noticeable alcohol burn toward the end. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with moderate carbonation and more leafy bitterness and citrus in the finish. Tasty but a tad boozy and bitter at times.
Light amber, hazy. Hops are citrusy but a bit oxidized at this point. Bitter, some bright orangey notes, light pale malts. Decent balance. djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2016

Appearance: Lighter copper, hazy. Finger of off white foam.
Nose: Pine and citrus hops restrained. Good amount of honeyed sweetness.
Taste: Malty but also resinously sweet with a nice hoppy balance between pine and citrus.
Body: Medium to thicker. satiny
Parting thoughts: definitely a more subtle hopped brew. Alcohol evident in taste and effect.

gunnfryd (15281) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2016
Clean golden color with medium head. The aroma provides a blend af resiny, fruity, dunk hops, and toffee (8.5). Lean body, can’t believe this is 9% beer, with strong toffee malt flavor, light residual sweetness, followed by a strong presence of piney hops and some citrus fruits. Well balanced..
Surgically clean IIPA with excellent malt and hops.
Kick 081215. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, caramel, malt, alcohol. Flavour is grapefruit, pine, caramel, malt, alcohol, herbs. Bitter finish. OK/Nice beer. Beer5000 (6735) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2015
650 ml bottle @ Kick. Unclear orange body with a rather small but good locking, lacing off-white head. Nice citric fruity aroma with lots of malt as well with caramel. Flavor is sweet pale malt, citric fruit and good bitterness. Well balanced pleasant body and long lasting aftertaste with smooth malt and pleasant bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden, just as a warming feeling in the aftertaste. Not really complex, pretty straight forward, but very smooth and well made. Nice one.

Rerated 2/17/16 - 2016 edition. More nelson. Still too sweet. uhclem (431) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2015
22oz bomber. The deScription says 10% ABV but the bottle says 8.7% ABV. Pours a hazy peach with a moderate head and good lacing. Nose is fruit, pine and earth with a hint of grass and yeast. Taste starts out sweet, evolves into malt and finally graduates to a complex bitterness. The whole mixture of nose, taste and finish is exceptional and hides the alcohol very well.
