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

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.

A: Pours a yellow brown with ample head. Good head retention and spotted lacing on the glass.

S: Floral and grassy aroma - great hop presence.

T: Good hop bitterness present up front - strong floral presence. Gets sweet on the back from a nice dose of malts. Nicely balanced.

25 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint, two finger fast reducing head.

Burnt orange color, reminiscent of a hefe, carbonation is moderate.

Smells: I was slightly congested, but I could smell grapefruit and citrus fruits, I could also smell the hop bill in its glory.

Taste: very malty at first, a little weak for me. The cascade and Chinook hops came in fine, and the "English Ale Yeast" gave the beer a forthright crispness.

Mouthfeel; nourishingly thick

Overall, this is a fantastic beer well worth pursuing and worth anyone's time who is a fan of big, hearty IPAs!
