Tap. Nice enough IPA, not the most memorable I’ve had though. Clean hop flavours and well enough balanced. Get it on tap if possible

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy dirty dark orange with a large beige head. Nose brings out stale resinous hops, some earthy notes, and a dry caramel malt backing. Flavour brings out the same - the bottle says best until April 2015, but this seems like it has expired already. Not cool marketing an IPA like this. I’ll have to rate it accordingly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice IPA overall. Pours a bright golden orange with a ton of carbonation streaming upwards to a thick puffy yellowish head. The nose is fruity and fresh with heaps of pineapple and grapefruit atop cara malts and pine needles. A bit sweet midpalate with a thick hop flavour through to the finish with heavy grapefruit and resin notes. Finishes relatively bitter with a prolonged aftertaste.

Drinking from the bottle. Aroma of dry hops. Tastes pretty hoppy with some malt characteristics and some citrus notes (not much citrus). Pretty dry finish. Decent!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle on the train back to Copenhagen after Fastelavn Smagning 2014, 02/03/14 thanks to Jan (Fonefan) for the trade.
Hazed orange amber with a moderate light beige covering that retains well.
Nose is bitter orange, earthy hops, toasty, light bread notes, apricot.
Taste comprises pith orange, soapy tones, hint of spice, grassy, bitter tropicals, earthy hop notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so, despite a 2015 BBD this seemed a little tired and the soap was a little too powerful.

Pours a clear copper with a medium sized fluffy dull white head. Aroma is citrus, sweet tropical fruits, and kinda spicy. Flavour is citrus, grapefruit, sweet tropical fruit, a spicy edge, and some caramel maltiness. Tasty ipa n doubt.
