3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From Craftissimo. Cloudy dark amber-brown with huge fluffy pillowy tan head. Smells of malt, toffee/butterscotch, musty grass jelly, produce aisle, resin. Taste begins as musty herbal malt, then becomes hugely resinous. Quite malty for an IPA, though also extremely resinous. Like other Amager beers, this is quite musty and very big. Unexpected direction but interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Two trips to Craftissimo day. Unexpectedly dark pour - dark hazy copper brown with some orange tint. Thick foamy head. Aroma is very malty - almost chocolate - with lots of resin hops. Taste is super malty at first, followed by piney resin hops. Nice bitterness, and very focused in flavor profile - pine! - but a bit too malty to me for an IPA (vs maybe a DIPA with more booziness and hops to balance). Nice though.
