    Nøgne Ø Imperial IPA (#500)
    Appearancewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer has a darkish red-brown color, and is hazy (the beer is unfiltered and bottle conditioned), with an slight tan head (leaving some lacing along the glass).
    Smellwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer has a sweet malty smell, with slight citrusy and piney hop aroma. (Note: I currently have a cold, so my olfaction isn't at its best)
    Tastewww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The initial taste is sweet and malty (caramel?), with the bitterness and hoppiness slowly building up. The sweetness and hoppiness disguise the high alcohol content well.
    Mouthfeelwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The body is quite thick, sweet, and oily, with moderate carbonation.
    Overallwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    It is a good beer, but I don't feel it is worth the high price payed for it. The beer is a little too sweet for my taste, but the hop level is nice.

    Edit: After drinking a 1.5 month old #500 I can just say that the flavor is a 4.5 (alot of citrusy and resiny hop tones) and that the overall grade is 4. A fantastic DIPA that unfortunately is on the expensive side.
