Danish: På amerikansk betyder Rated X, at noget er forbudt for børn. Og med Rated XX mener vi, at vi har lavet en øl, der er SERIØST forbudt for børn. Men når det er sagt, så indrømmer vi blankt, at vi selv ikke er stort andet end legesyge børn, af den lidt nørdede slags, der kan li’ at lege med….humle. Næsten alt er prøvet i øllets forunderlige verden, men vi tvivler dog på, at noget andet bryggeri tidligere har sendt en øl på markedet, der indeholder: Zeus, Mittelfrüh, Brewers Gold, Crystal, Simcoe, Perle, Mt, Hood, Hersbrücker, Challenger, Fuggles, Liberty, Styrian Goldings, Columbus, Chinook, Amarillo, Bramling Cross, East Kent Goldings, Willamette, Palisade og Saaz humle i én og samme bryg. Jep, du læste rigtigt: 20 (XX) forskellige humler fandt vi plads til. De er drysset i med nænsom og gavmild hånd hvert tredje minut i løbet af de 120 minutters kogning og til sidst tørhumlet med East Kent Goldings. Og til at balancere dette humlehelvede har vi skabt en ganske solid maltbase bestående af engelske Crystal og Maris Otter malte. Ud af anstrengelserne er kommet en ganske solid Imperial IPA, som måske ikke overraskende er ganske humlet. Humletågerne står nemlig tæt i glasset og efterlader de mest eventyrlige duftindtryk, hvor især ferskentonerne byder sig lokkende til. Rated XX er den ultimative våde drøm for humlenørderne. Prøv den mens tid er, for vi kan ikke gøre den om.

English: In American Rated X means that something is not allowed for kids, With Rated XX we’ve made a beer that’s SERIOUSLY not suited for kids. But on that note we have to admit, that we’re just kids ourselves. Nothing but geeky kids who love to play around with….hops. Most things have already been tried in the wondrous world of beer, but we seriously doubt that any other brewery has ever released a beer that contains: Zeus, Mittelfrüh, Brewers Gold, Crystal, Simcoe, Perle, Mt, Hood, Hersbrücker, Challenger, Fuggles, Liberty, Styrian Goldings, Columbus, Chinook, Amarillo, Bramling Cross, East Kent Goldings, Willamette, Palisade and Saaz hops in the same brew. Yep, you got it right, we’ve added no less than 20 (XX) different hops during our 120 minute boil. A new addition of hops every 3 minutes. To balance this hoppy hell we created a solid malt bill consisting of English Crystal and Maris Otter malts. Out of all this rises a fairly solid Imperial IPA that – not surprisingly – is rather hoppy. In your glass you’ll find a complex mist of hop aroma with the smooth peachy notes being the most prominent. Rated XX is the ultimate wet dream for all you hopheads out there. Try it now, ‘cause you’ll never get the chance again.

Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Hopfiger, aber nicht übertriebener Antrunk, süffig. Die Hopfigkeit ist recht eigen, man merkt den Mix von Hopfensorten. Das es nun 20 sind wahrlich nicht, aber gut. Süffig bleibend, angenehm intensiv. Im weiteren Verlauf deutlich bitterer, auch hier erwartet man bei der Angabe von 200+ IBUs deutlich mehr. Angenehmes IIPA, das aber für seine Art doch eher mild ausfällt. Minimal alkoholisch. 12/11/11/11/10/11

Hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel and very hoppy - pine and fruity. Flavor is quite sweet and extremely bitter. The bitterness seems to last forever. Apparently only 1000 bottles were made. I had the fortune of sharing two af them with a buddy of mine. 050310

this rate is for a beer that is way vintage. Original beer must’ve been awesome kindly shared by jens ungstrup @ ungstrup tasting cloudy amber smooth offwhite head. aroma is hoppy, lots of different kinds of hop aromas, but it all seems a bit subdued. flavor is very hoppy, mix of all sorts of hoppy flavors, malty balance. interesting how the hops mellow out over time.

2008 version from Enjoyit, lateral tasting of 2009 and 2008 . Going through my cellar, I noticed this recently expired beer and decided to double up tonight. 500 ml bottle that pours very cloudy grapefruit colour, with a huge soapy head with some reddish tinge to it. Despite the outstanding combination of hops, the hop aroma is something familiar that I have become accustomed to from this brewery, and its not substantially citrus. Altogether very drinakble complex, but alcohol warming in finish. Worth seeking out. A tad above average mouthfeel.

odgaard (382) - Skyum, Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2010
Hazy orange with a lot of sediment. Lasting lacing beige head. Aroma: Lots of hops, citrus, grapefruit, orange, pine, grass, but also some peach, malt and caramel. A little alc too. Taste: Very bitter. Grapefruit, citrus, lemon, pine, but with an ok base of malt anc alc to balance some of the bitterness. Could have been a disaster with that much hops but actually a pretty good beer.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
Bottle. Deep amber colored with a nice lasting off white head. Aroma is hoppy, fusely, messy and malty. The flavours are sugar, soapy, phenolic, piney and hoppy. Too messy and too sticky.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2009
Amber pour with a medium sized off white head. Dough, earth, plastic, grass aroma. Flavor was lettuce, dough, grass, dirt, orange peel, celery, mint, carrots. Bitter finish with a good amount of carbonation. No I’m not joking with my descriptors.
