Can at home. The can tells me to drink from can... And I always do what cans tell me to - so no idea how it looks, But I guess a clear golden with a white/off-white head, and give it a 3. Very bitter with a low, hoppy sweetness. Lots of hops aromas. Mostly of spruce and grape-fruit but also some plant sap. Medium to full bodied, with an oily mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Long, bitter and extremely hoppy finish. Hoppy!

I love the hoppiness of the beer and there’s very little to no bitterness. It’s a dark amber color and medium to full bodied.

Pours an orange/brownish color. Smell is bursting with hops and citrus. Taste is also very good, lots of hops, citrus, tropical fruits, not overly bitter. Overall a top quality beer worth seeking out.

Bottle shared by Dak. Pour is golden clear, with a small head, with oily texture. Aroma is wonderful hops which results in tons of citrus, with over the top grapefruit. Taste is citrus and hoppy bitterness. Finish is bitter.

Can, from Ølbutikken. After all the "Best Performer of the Week"-hype here on Ratebeer I’ve picked up one of these nifty cans out of curiosity. Let’s see what all this is about. Poured into my tulip glass, this one comes out as a slightly hazy, pale yellow beverage with a small white head. Nose is very fruity, with melon, cranberry, strawberry, hints of grass, pine and gooseberry. Very, very nice. Taste is flowery grass tones, lemon touches, grapefruit, hints of grass, earth and lime. Citric bitterness dominates, along with a substantial amount of sweetness at the same time, which doesn’t harmonize in my mouth somehow; where the aroma promised me heaven taste did not quite deliver. Medium carbonation, and very easily drunk for its ABV. All in all an OK DIPA, but nothing more. So what’s with the hype? :-P

Taking the on-can recommendation with this one and drinking it from the can. A bit strange, given that you lose the appearance/aroma qualities, but, hey, brewer’s choice. This is a really nice IPA. Alcohol is high (8%), but hidden, and it really is just all about delicious hop flavor. A bit sticky or resiny. The art is cool, too (I’ll balance the lack of being able to see the beer with the good art and the black tab). Not over bitter. Somehow stays balanced within the realm of the hugely hopped. Nicely done.

Dåse: Gul let orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Dejlig sødlig duft af humle, konen kunne ane kattepis. Jeg havde mest citrus og sød malt. Smagen er igen dejlig humlet med en blød karbonering. Dejlig øl, godt balanceret, men ikke outstanding.

16 ounce can thanks to Dallas. A wonderful presentation. Pours a very cloudy orange color with some particulates floating around and a medium white head. The aroma is big resin and citrus, lemon dominates. A rich brew with grassy and zesty citrus flavors, lighter resin, very zesty and superbly drinkable.
