22 oz bottle poured into a Solemn Oath tulip.
6% ABV,

A - Deep golden raw honey on the verge of being amber, Kidnapped by Vikings is a hazed beer that forms a lasting off-white head with dots of lace left in it's wake.

S - Fresh, juicy hops bring the pineapple and mango tropical fruitiness but give this glass a swirl and dank marijuana and sour apple Blow Pop, complete with bubblegum, join the mix! Hops steal the show but smooth caramel malt makes for a seductively sweet base.

T - Like the aroma before it, Kidnapped by Vikings is straight hop in your face but the flavor changes course towards even more fruity flavor. The Blow Pop is still there too, it's just more of a blue raspberry taste mixed with ripe tropical fruits; this beer is almost a girly drink! Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and melon join the fun in this ridiculously tasty IPA!

M - Kidnapped by Vikings' smooth body starts medium full for it's lower alcohol content but quickly turns refreshing and crisp from the abundant hops which dry out the palate and leave a spectacular bitterness on the tongue.

O - Who knew being Kidnapped by Vikings would be so damn delicious? Solemn Oath proves it with this powerfully hoppy yet slightly restrained IPA, which showcases an abundance of tasty tropical fruits. Smooth, easy drinking, and fresh as hell, this is one of the better IPAs I've had as of late.

Highly bitter not a lot of maltiness.

A rocky but thin head.

The smell is pretty light.

Lots of red grapefruit on the nose and grapefruit pith on the palate.

Defiantly a first-drink-of-the-night beer.

There's a little cinnamon in the aftertaste. And possibly a hint of apple pie crust.

The color is a hazy reddish golden amber.
