Beer review: Nøgne Ø India Pale Ale (IPA)

Nøgne Ø India Pale AleLooks

Dark reddish / brown hazy color with big off-white fluffy head.

Aroma

Loads of hoppy action in the nose. Pine, orange zest, and sweetness from the malt. This IPA smells a bit more full bodied than other IPAs.

Flavor

The flavor is pretty much like the aroma. Well balanced, bitter (60 IBU), fruity and lots of malt character. Perfect amount of bitterness. Lovely carbonation level as well.

Finish

Long pleasant light bitter finish that just leaves you wanting another zip. Absolutely lovely.

Rating

I have had this beer loads of times before, and it is one of my all-time favorite IPAs. Score: 4.5/5. This bottle was batch #601.
