COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi er blevet kaldt en flok humletosser. I vore årer flyyder ikke blod men koncentreret alfasyre. Derfor var det kun en fryd at møde et par ligesindede, da vi fik besøg af Tomme Arthur og Mike Rodriguez fra Port Brewing i San Diego, Californien - hjemstavn for USA’s saftigste IPAer. Sammen skabte vi denne sprøde og knastørre Westcoast IPA. Den er ikke for børn. Er du humleforskrækket, så flygt. Er du ikke ikke, så nyd den. Det gør vi.

Splitenz (338) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
A thoroughly enjoyable IPA from two top notch brewers. They must have had a hop war (the beer geek version of a pillow fight) prior to brewing this. What they’ve made is a Danish East "Coast" West Coast IPA. The beer reeks of "because we can" cheekyness. And yet, it is all well balanced, not too much in any way, with fruity and bitter notes working together to make a splendid sci-fi geek/beer-geek marriage.

tandembrauer (618) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger, Norway, 20140320. Herbs, bitter. Orange. Not the world’s best IPA.

Mi aspettavo molto di più dalla presentazione di questa birra. Nel regge il confronto con i concorrenti.

Noe dunkel lys gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av sitrus og grapefrukt. Smak av sitrus og grapefrukt. Melkebaren.

freretoc (1185) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 7, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 50cl, une belle couleur blonde trouble et une mousse bien blanche parfaitement onctueuse, en bouche grosse attaque sur le houblon très aromatique, on sent le citron et le fruit de la passion excellent !

MichaelAwesome (5866) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2014
Wunderbares IPA, das beinahe alle Wünschen gerecht wird. Fruchtig, vollkommen breit gefächert zwischen Zitrus und Beeren. Dazu noch eine ordentliche Portion Hopfen, wobei der Abschluss wirklich süffig-mild ist. Feines Zeug. Echt fein.

McTapps (5867) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you so much, Kenni! The IPA pours out in a light hazy golden-orange colour with steady low head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and mild oranges. Taste of fresh, aromatic hops, gooseberries, oranges, herbs and mild spices. Dry-bitter finish. High enjoyable IPA - loved it.

Boutip (5233) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep beige color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops with nice fruity notes and limited bitterness is very enjoyable. Taste is also a mix between some dry pale malt notes with some citrusy and grapefruit forward hops with some limited bitterness. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very enjoyable beer with nice hops presence and limited bitterness.

migajos (302) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 18, 2014
A bit too bitter. One dimentional. Not really drinkable . A bit floral taste and aroma. Very long and strong bitterness. I expect more ballance of IPA. There is no sweet/fruit note.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This slender IPA develops quite a strong resinous bite to go along its citrusy leanings, all in a bubbly and quenching mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the misty honey blond.
-Some rough greenness reaches the nose. Not my kind of IPA aroma (unless there is some juicy fruitiness to back it up).
-The fruitiness is reminiscent of pears and various citrus fruit.
-Carbonation is intense, which increases the impression of dryness and drinkability.

Bottle.
