A: Deep Copper opaque brown. Off white head that stick around at a finger or so. Lacing throughout.
S: Before getting close, I can smell caramel. Let's get in closer. Caramel malts overpower a spicier hop profile. Brown sugar. Dark fruits.
T: Whoa! Holy sweet malt, batman! Some lemon and orange bittnerness, hit with a fantastically fruity malt. Some alcohol is present, but all in all, very smooth.
M: To me, the sugar/malt mouthfeel isn't supposed to be here. Tastes a lot like my first homebrew attempt at a hop bomb... overly sugary and thick.
O: Not fully impressed, however... it works for he style. I had never had a Norwegian beer, I think, so this is nice to add to the list of countries... but not something I would want regularly.

Had this on tap at Braukunstlive 2014 in Munich, Germany. It tasted really fresh, considering they must have flown in or drove down from Norway....another WOW beer: a huge IPA, full of all kinds of fruity flavors, but it was also very alcoholicy, which in my book means it needs more lager time.

Pours Amber with orange hues and with almost zero head.
Blood orange and some grape in the nose. More of a barley wine character. Resins and pine coming from the hops.
Almost candy-like. Still coming through as more of a barley wine. Fairly balanced between malt and hops. More blood orange. Sipping this one for sure as some alcohol notes come through. Candy and toffee comes to mind from what I would think would be crystal malts but the bottle says barley, wheat and rye. Comes through more complex then I would initially believe.
Not as boozy as I initially thought. Some alcohol, yes. Overall this is more of a barley wine bit there are some DIPA characteristics. Strong hop presence with slightly stronger malt characters. Doesn't finish as dry as some DIPAs on the market.
