4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
MY DANISH RATING # 1000. Tap @ Carlsens Kvarter. Pours cloudy orange with a creamy white head and lacings. Nose has a massive amount of hops. Lots of pine and peach. Taste is hoppy as well but some rye and malts pops up. Very crisp and also quite extreme. One dimensional and perhaps a bit out of balance - but pretty damm tasty. Crisp and smooth. Long bitter dry end. Nice.

Draught at KØ10. Distinct grassy aroma, a little sweet. Hazy amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, grassy and hoppy. High bitterness. Also some caramelly hop.

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.

3.8 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.

Hazy dark orange, bit amber colored. Fantastic hoppy smell and taste. Light body though, soft carbonation, but long bitter hoppy aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki)
Hazy orange. Served very cold. Massive fruity aroma - peach and melon. Huge biscuity palate - tracle flapjack with fruits and roasted edges. First taste is stunning. However, I might tire easily, let’s see... The carbonation is sharp, but that’s hindered by it being served at Papsolute zero. Treacle and spicy dried mixed peal. Tingly fruity finish, some ginger and clove. Half way down, and the rich tracly roast is still great. Liked it all the way to the end. Nice one!
