A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #24 in a series – Nøgne Ø Two Captains Double IPA

Tonight a bit off the beaten track is  a bit of TWO CAPTAINS Double IPA 

500mls and 8,5% ALC/VOL

 They say “Jan Halvor Fjeld, winner of the Norwegian home brewing championships 2010 brewed his champion Imperial IPA at Nøgne Ø. We at Nøgne Ø are of course proud to be with him in making this happen”.
They also say “This double IPA is truly American inspired. It is fairly dry, which allows the hops to dominate. There is bitterness up front, some balanced malts in the middle and complex fruity and resiny hop aromas which simply has no end.”
So I’m a little bit looking forward to this…. and then … oh wow,to say that this is an unusual beer would not to do it justice. It has that sour smell that I associate with Pale Ale, but does not carry that smell to the tongue, It carries a  kind of citrus taste and has a long taste, it’s also surprisingly and not unpleasantly bitter.
So what do I really think? This might be the kind of beer you get out a party, it’s not something that I think you’d have as a go-to beer. It’s bitterness will put you off.
On the pdubyah-o-meter then an arbitrary 8 1/2 stars. Not my favorite beer by a long way, but not the worst that I had the pleasure of drinking.  Nøgne Ø make a few different beers all with interesting back stories, I may have to linger longer here.
