Just got this one yesterday. No freshness or brewing info on the bottle (hate that with an IPA).

A-Pour is a hazy amber with a huge frothy off white head with huge retention.

S-Very malty on the nose, perhaps a whiff of hops but not much there.

T-Very malty with a strong crystal malt presence, with a solid bitterness and a bit of orange zest in the finish. Solid but unspectacular.

M-Medium bodied, good lingering bitterness.

O-Pretty much just ok for me. Solid flavor, low on the aromatics.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange color forming s solid, creamy and persistent yellow head. Forms dome creamy and soapy lacings in the glass

S: Intense caramel followed by flowery hops. American style as expected. Malts are a mix of caramel and maris otter and hops are flowery, herby and quite piny with a touch of citrus. Fruity, with notes of orange, grapefruit and a little bit of mango

T: Slightly sweet caramel malts in upfront followed by a dry and intense hops bitterness. Notes of caramel, caramel malts, brown sugar, orange, mango and pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a good hops bitterness kick. However, quite smooth and well balanced

M: Medium body and carbonation. Caramel and piny hops in the aftertaste. A great texture. Pleasantly smooth mouth feel

O: Great drinkability. My second Nøgne. No regret so far. Great brew

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours pale gold/orange and cloudy from the yeast sediment, dense white head which settled fairly quickly. Resinous aroma typical of a strong IPA in common with many US IPA's - reflecting the anticipated taste. Strong forward hoppy flavours typical of the style, rich texture reflecting the 7.5% alc, very tasty and satisfying. Hardly a session beer at this level of alc, but a very good and enjoyable beer. Though a bit expensive being imported from Norway.
