Bottled, from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Hazy amber, mid sized head. The aroma of gooseberries, mango and black currants is less obvious here than in the regular version. Mid sweet with solid body and rounded mouthfeel. Gooseberries, passion fruit and mint in a long bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl bottle @ hotel room, Las Vegas
Vertical with normal version
Aroma is slightly sweet and fruity with hops and hay. Also hints of gooseberry bush. Flavour is sweetish with gooseberry bush, some fruits and biscuits. The hops linger in my mouth. Good, but not as good as the basic version. The fresh hopping makes this a bit stale and too strong on gooseberries.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from bottle at PIB, pours clear golden / copper with a small beige head. Aroma of pungent citrus peel, mango and other sort of muted tropical fruits - doesn’t exactly strike me as a fresh hop IPA. Flavour of mangos, citrus peels, some yeast. A little dull - perhaps this is old. Would hate to think the festival would serve an old fresh hop. Decent one, but seems dull and muted a bit.

A nice fresh hopped beer, herbal/pine bitter profile meets light malt body. Herbal vegetative notes dominate.
