4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Carlsens Kvarter, Odense.
Pours hazy orange-copper with a small, creamy, yellow-beige head. Fine duration. Aroma is world-class. Hops, apricot, apples,pine, mango, caramel, some rye and strawberries. Prickly lively carbonation, impressively dry and creamy feel despite that. Flavour is equally great. Fine sweetness, rather fat maltiness. Then the pine hits me, adding apricot, citrus, oranges, caramel, grass. Truly immensely hoppy yet impressively balanced. More? Yes, please!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Carlsens Kvarter. Slightly hazy amber with a lasting off-white head. Great hop aroma, pine and spruce with some complex peach and other fruits, a touch of orange and spicy malt notes.
The flavour is filled with caramel and rye malt, complex hop flavours and a heavy hop bitterness. The obvious comparison is Ølfabrikken Rug IPA and this one is cleaner, with both malt and hops appearing more sophisticated. Outstanding IPA

sampled on the terrace at faliraki, rhodos, greece.

aroma is flowery, dry and faint bitter hoppy, strong hoppy aroma, reminds me of the best ipa’s and barley wines ive had. bottle version seems to be better reg. aroma than draft.
flavor is dry hoppy, sweet malty, but hops dominate, hops character is sawdust, pine, faint grapefruit, faint flowery note. rye adds some depth and sweetness to the malty flavor.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Marcus as Ryehopper. Pours brassy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is mixed floral/spice - rather strong. Med body. It starts a bit sweet. Hints of rye spice. Hop then, then comes malt. Finishes increasingly bitter. Gettin’ bitter all the time. Subtle in its way.

Draught. Clear deep golden amber colour, short head. Good lacing. Lovely ripe fruity hoppy aroma. Good mouthfeel indeed. The flavour is refreshing with lots of fruity hops, pine, pleasant soft sweetness and some citrus. Long lasting fruity hoppy dry finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grasiger und bitterer Hopfenantrunk und trockenen und erdigen Beinoten. Dabei ausgewogen, kein Aroma stellt sich in den Vordergrund. Erst später kommt mit dem stärkeren Hopfen auch mehr Bitterkeit hinzu, dennoch bleibt das Bier ausgewogen und sehr süfig. Nett! 8/9/9/9/12/9

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is beautiful red copper and the head is huge, golden and creamy. The aroma is liquid hops with notes of spruce, mango, very aromatic citrus, caramel, hints of petroleum and rye. The slightly sweet flavor is dominated by the hops, but in a nice balance with the rest. It has notes of rye, spruce, resin, mango, citrus, petroleum, caramel and this must be the ideal hop-juice for any hop-junkie...
