  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: yep, love them Scandanavian brews

Visual: Pours cloudy orange-brown with minimal lasting head, fine foamy 1mm layer of retention, clusters of steady active streams.

Nose: faint subtle sour funk’d barley malt (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: crisp, thick fullness, creamy

Mid-palate: sour overtones, sharp numbing resiny-pine, (lvl-5)-sweetness, soft toffee barley malt,

Finish: subtle banana wheat malt exhale, grainy barley malt, lingering metallic hopped bitterness

Summary: The combo of oats for creaminess, wheat for fruitiness, and barley as the backbone works well in this brew. This IPA is the dry, piney variety – good stuff, but I wished for more fruity citrus to round it out. Easy for 7.4%.
