3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Hazy orange amber with a lovely, medium, staying, creamy, off-white head - with just the slightest hint of pink. Lovely fruity aroma, peach, pineapple, oranges, apricot, grapefruit. Light plant sap. A bit of hazel or macademia nuts. Mild caramel note. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a mild metallic note that detracts, otherwise lovely hops balanced with some crispy malt - light crystal, light biscuity. Long, lingering, piney and dry bitterness. The tropical notes are more subdued in flavour and much more bitter than expected.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaske: Orange uklar øl med et lille skumhoved. Ikke særlig køn men fantastisk duft. Tropisk frugtbowle som etiketten siger er ganske korrekt. Fantastisk. lang tid siden jeg har duftet noget så godt. Smagen er også lige i skabet med masser tropisk frugt og en god maltsødme. Mundfylden vinder mest på at smagen er så god. Diskrete små bobler, men en lidt mere livlig karbonation måtte der gerne have været. Verdensklasse.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Smells of goose berries... It does!!! Dry with lots of hops aromas of grape fruit, passion fruits and gooseberries. Also underlying caramel notes. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Long bitter finish with more hops aromas.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy dark amber with a small head.
Nose shows super juicy hops with massive amounts of passionfruit leaping out along with a load of sweet malt contributing a faint toasty character.
Very similar flavours but the passionfruit isn’t quite so full-on, nor is the malt quite so noticeable. Instead there’s a nice sharp bitterness. Very refreshing.
Carbonation is a little high really.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle, Christmas present from Cameron & Marita - thanks. Unclear amber hue, medium off white creamy mostly lasting head with very good lacing. The aromas are divine with astonishing hop aromas; tropical fruit especially passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, and resin, pine. There’s some biscuity caramel malt in there and a bit of pepperiness. Nice balance of sweet and bitter taste, bitter finish with an average to long duration. Medium body, slightly oily texture, soft carbonation, moderately astringent finish. An outstanding brew. I especially love those hop aromas. This style with NZ hops would have to be one of my favourites now. Epic Armageddon & Renaissance MPA comparable and only marginally better? It would be great to have all 3 side by side to compare. Anyway this is my bliss, my happy place, love it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky amber brown with rocky creamy coloured head. Not the best lookinh beer but never the less. Aromas of sweet caramel and the NZ hops. Lots of tropical fruits. Flavours are a little weird for me. Some sweet malt and a little resiny hop bitterness coming through but it seems to miss the mark a little. Did real enjoy this one.
