    Nøgne Ø Imperial IPA (#500)
    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).
    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)
    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.
    The body is quite thick, sweet, and oily, with moderate carbonation.
    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.
