COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing our year-round Almanac IPA, a West Coast hop bomb overflowing with hop flavors and aromas. We start with a copper-hued malt base of California-grown two-row barley, German Vienna Malt, Crystal Malts and Biscuit Malt. Then we start layering on the hops—grown all along the west coast in California, Oregon and Washington. We combine Magnum, Chinook, Cascade, El Dorado and Simcoe to create our own unique twist on the IPA style with intense aromas of grapefruit and tangerine peel, pineapple and pine trees. The finish has a clean bitterness and light saltine cracker note.

Vestergaard (599) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours yellow to amber with a fairly dense, white head. Aroma has both sweet and more acidic fruit notes like strawberry, pineapple, mandarin, ripe orange, some malts, lots of intense hops, pine, slight bread and some slightly odd oregano or thyme notes. Not bad, just unexpected. Taste has a high hop bitterness, but also some of underlying, malty sweetness. Not as acidic as the aroma was. Some earthy notes here too. Medium carbonation and a fairly full body. Finishes off pretty bitter. Decent and somewhat different.

Nästan inget skum alls hmm bådar gott. Ganska klar klassiskt färgad IPA. Ren fräsch doft inget sticker ut.smakar fan perfekt . Fruktig och lagom beska rätt igenom från början till slut. Lågt = bra kolsyrad. Riktigt god IPA på gränsen till Dipa.,

Strong peach, citrus and malt aroma. Dark golden orange hazy color with thick but bright white head. Smooth hoppy zest to start, great texture. Mellow bitterness to finish Really smooth for a 7.5% IPA. Really balanced. Hells yeah Almanac.

Bottle courtesy of Paul. Pours a light golden body with nice white head. Aroma is malt, light caramel character, soft grains and light grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of caramel malt, pine, grapefruit, bread and soft grains. A bit plain, but would love to try fresh from the source.

From tap. Pours cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is grapefruity and light peachy. Crisp hoppy, mild pine and grapefruity. Smooth. Solid bitter into a more pronounced pine hoppy finish.
