Can. Dark golden amber. Thick dense head.
Hoppy pine smell. Some silage and mixed citrus aromas.
Grass like taste continues. Rather muted. Some biscuit. Light astringency.
Soft carbonation.
The taste lets down the aroma.

Pours clear dark orange, high wispy beige head. Smells of herbal clementines, spiced hops, and citrus bitterness. Taste is slightly malted citrus, watery clementine with a biscuity base. Normal carbonation, dry finish. Overall nothing special.

The liquid pours a dirty gold color. Nearly clear, just a bit of a chill haze. Starts with a half-finger head that settles quickly into rim bubbles. Some streaks and spots for lace.

The name suits the smell--lots of citrus (grapefruit rind) as well as pleasant floral hop and soft, lightly toasted malt. Excellent well-balanced aroma.

The taste comes across more one-sided as in lots of straight up hop (black peppery) bitterness. Long aftertaste that ends extremely dry almost astringent. Thinnish body, neutral carbonation.

This is the tale of a great smell and an over-hopped taste. Even if this was an IPA, I'd say there is too much of a good thing...and I'm a hop head! Still, this beer does NOT cross over into the extreme category, but it comes real close.

I felt it was just not a very pleasant flavor. I did not get any citrus despite that being in the name of the beer, and it was just straight bitter. I think Aegir (and other Norwegian breweries) are held back quite a bit by the 4.7% alcohol rule; it would be interesting to see what they could do with their everyday beers if not limited.
