COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Oven på julens fyldige mad og alle de søde sager, syntes vi hos Black Rooster at der skulle skylles efter med noget radikalt anderledes. Humle, og masser af det, må være den rette kur tænkte vi, og resultatet er blevet en lækker ravgylden Amerikansk IPA, der bl.a.er tørhumlet med masser af Cascade og Chinook humle.

Backlog. On tap at Green Lion Inn. This is actually a quite decent IPA, though haven’t seen it around in a while.

Draught. Dark amber colour. Hazy. Grassy hops with hints of grapefruit. Yeasty flavours, unfortunately. A little too sweet too.

Bottle at Schouskjelleren, march 2012 Hazy orange body, good light tanned head. Hoppy grassy aroma, maybe a bit too grassy for me. Taste is also pretty grassy, with distinct lemon and adjuncts. Good grapefruity finish. Not a bad ipa, but not quite there

garza (568) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours amber look with frothy white head. Fruity citric aroma with a subtlte hint of clementines and mango. Some grass notes too. Hopy and malty flavour with medium sweetness and lightly bitter taste (it could be more). Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a better bitter feeling on th finsh with some spicy notes. Ok.

Lilja (1685) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2012
Trevlig IPA, smak och doft av tropisk frukt, karamell lite grapebeska men kunde lätt vara lite beskare för smakens skull.

MadIndian (2414) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Gift from SJ. Wow is this complex. I liked the bold floral / grapefruit aroma. The taste was of big hop, an odd minty / wood / pepper and caramel flavor. Really enjoyable. Well done!

Hazy dark orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and pine needles. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 300112

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle 50 cl hazy dark amber with a big creamy off-white head. Fresh aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, citrus, malt and caramel. The taste is sweet almost candy-like flavor with clear notes of pineapple, citrus and plenty of hoppy which lead to a pretty bitter taste and mouthfeel and a long bitter hoppy finish

ClubGonzo (4115) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Dark hazy orange body, medium white head. Nose is passion fruit, kiwi, peaches and hints of grass and mango. Taste is sweet rosewater, grass and hints of peaches. Short finish. A bit too much on the sweet side for me, but still deliciously fruity.
