Bottle pours a hazy but almost luminescent orange colour, with the floating sediment giving the glass an almost gelatinous look. Silky mouthfeel is decent and low carbonation level does not feel flat.
Malt-forward aroma has a copper tang that I typically associate with age. Although recently purchased, it's batch 831 from 03.07.12? Assume that means early July rather than March, but not certain. Either way, aroma does not hint much at the hops found in the flavour.
The taste is more robust and offers “American west-coast” style tropical fruits, with some grapefruit and tangerine citrus elements. DIPA ends with a pleasantly bracing bitter finish, and a far more subtle alcohol warmth than 8.5% ABV typically produces.
As most Norwegian offerings I’ve enjoyed have been a form of “Euro lager”, this beer is a very pleasant surprise and one I would recommend that any hop lover try.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Nice and classic Nogne bottle art. Pours a clear light orange color forming a huge and bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Strong fruity and citrus notes. Grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Sweet pale grains. Flowery hops
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very citrus notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine. In overall, a slightly sweet taste followed by a strong and pleasant hops bitterness. Well hidden 8.5% ABV
M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, citrus and piny aftertaste
O: Great drinkability. Another Nogne classic
