Sharp grapefruit and pine, on the nose, along with slight resin and lemon. Very traditional American IPA nose.

Flavor follows, with a grainy malt bill, moderate bitterness, and citrus and pine hop notes.

Lively and smooth on the palate.

This is an excellent American IPA brewed in Iceland. Borg Brugghus definitely seems to be a legitimate craft brewery pumping out some solid stuff.

On tap at Keflavik Airport.

Pours a clear orange, with soft, white foam.

Nice piney smell, quite reminiscent of the classic West Coast IPAs, like Sculpin.

The taste is very hoppy, with pine and grapefruit dominating. Good West Coast stuff here as well.

Soft texture, medium bodied, nice feel.

Overall, a very solid IPA, god balance between the hops and the malt, tastes like it's stronger than 5.9.

On tap at Lobster and Stuff in Reykjavik, Iceland.

This one pours a slightly hazy yellowish orange, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

Smells like overripe grapefruit and orange, piney and perfumy hops, and a bit of malt.

The taste is pretty similar. The perfume character is a little overwhelming, and gives the beer a bit of a unpleasant slightly skunky flavor. It's too bad, because the grapefruit and orangey hop flavors are pretty good, with a sturdy malt backbone, and a pretty intense bitterness.

This is medium bodied, pretty crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

Not bad but far from the best I've had from this brewery.

Pours a clear yellow/gold colour. Smells mostly of hops, with a slight bit of malts; the hops are clean and floral. Tastes a bit bitters from the hops, floral hops, slightly sweet malts; crisp, clean, and well balanced. Lovely lIPA.
