Draught @ Bakgården Både &, KristiansandZymurgeist2 (2349) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, orange. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel, malty, citrus, and orange finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft
From bottle to pint glass. I generally like this brewery but this one missed the mark. Aroma and flavor are both laden with over crystal and biscuit malt. Slight earthy and floral hops in the back are nice. Clear full copper with white head that fades to a collar. Malty and sugary finish that could have been dried out more with a different yeast.

From bottle. Not bad for an IPA, but it always has a bit of a metallic aftertaste. I kind of get used to it, but it’s not a good thing. stchloe (1104) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Okay IPA, dark is an interesting style, definitely subdued hops, more malt forward with biscuits and toast. dnstone (3497) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Pours a copper golden color with a sudsy off white head. Moderately sweet and malty aroma and taste, highly carbonated. Lighter pine hop notes in the flavor.
Notes: on tap at the brewery, May ’17

Bomber from Uptown. Pours a copper color with a large white head. A big caramel and toast nose. Caramel, toast, pine, medium bitterness, soft perfume. Pretty nice. A sort of throwback IPA. Smooth. luttonm (6661) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2017
Bottle in Cannon Beach, OR. From the CB tap room. Creamy foam, amber body. Bitter grain, darker amber malt with some dark caramel. Heavy bitter. Wet grain, not terribly enjoyable. Amber bitter. Not my IPA. But fine. yngwie (17186) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2016
On tap at Både&. An unclear dark amber colored beer with a dense finger thick light beige head leaving sexy lacing. The aroma is rather hoppy, piney and lightly citrusy, with caramel and roasted malts in the back. It’s full bodied, nicely carbonated and semi sweet, with a delicious bitterness. Pine cones, citrus zest and caramel malts in the flavor. Some bread notes. Really long finish with dark malts in the back, some sweetness, and a healthy dose of hop flavors and bitterness. Nice indeed, very moreish. 161202 gunnfryd (15176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2016
Bakgården Både & 251116. Amber-orange color with a beige head. Aroma is fruit, malt, hop, caramel. Flavor is fruit, malt, hop, caramel, grapefruit, alcohol, pine, bread. Medium to full body. Nice beer. Beer5000 (6678) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2016
Tap @ Bakgården. Unclear dark orange body with a small but lacing off-white head. Aroma is strong caramel malt, some biscuit, ripe fruit and hint of pine. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bread, dry fruit, ripe fruit, some pine and quite biter. Full bodied and long lasting aftertaste with caramel malt and bitter hops. Close to what I would describe as an Imperial brown ale.
