4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Canned. Poured golden in color with a nice white head. Hop aroma bursts from the can. Tons of grapefruit and other citrus flavors form a strong aroma. Flavor is clearly very bitter but has a rounded sweet taste. Very mellow and well balanced. If it wasn’t 8% ABV I could drink this all day long.

Can, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours clear golden with flakes of hops. Low, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has lovely resiny hops, peach, pine, fresh. Light doughy malts. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of bitterness, pine, peach, grapefruit. CAramel and doughy malts in the centre. But this is all bitterness. Warming finish. Lovely.

Stunned, bewildered, humbled, shocked . . . ok, just a regular encounter with daknole as he just gave me a can of this because I hadn’t had it before. Awesome! Thanks!! 16oz can pours with some eye pleasing hop haze, yes!, suspended in a fine mist within a deep gold colored body and supporting a near white head of foam. The aroma is nice and vibrant with grapefruit like citrus goodness along with some cracker nuanced dry maltiness and rimmed with mango fruitiness. The taste is a bold pleasing mix of grapefruit and mango like hop flavor running hand in hand with a thicket of resiny hop bitterness. Well underneath the fresh crisp hoppiness are faint murmurs of the malt sweet base. It dwindles away with yummy echoes of citrus hops. So this one gets good ratings and it is crystal clear why. This is a damn fine beer. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl can @ hotel room, copenhagen.
Some yeast partickles in the glass. Aroma is slightly sweet with peaches and exotic fruits. Flavour is also slightly sweet with gooseberry bush, some resin, pine needles and hints of alcohol. Good, but I suppose the bottle version would have been better. The yeast is rather hard to handle with the can.

500 ml can.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of strong floral hops, mellow honey and mango. Flavour of strong floral hops, mellow honey, yeast, caramel and overly ripe mango. Medium bodied, dryish mouthfeel and a warming, floral, fruity finish. Would work even better on a hot summer day.

Thanks sooo much to Daknole for sending this one. Been on my list for a while. Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with peach hues. One finger of creamy eggshell white head. Nose is super intense, very zesty with lots of grapefruit resin. A slight onion quality comes through. Very spicy with some floral notes. Nice and dry with a very spicy/zesty hop quality. Slightly resinous with a mildly onion like quality. Medium bitterness. Summit in there?
