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.

Fad: Flot orange øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af blomsterhumle, men tydeligt amerikansk inspireret. Smagen sidder lige i skabet for en meget quaffable IPA, med en mindre humlebitterhed end man først skulle tro. Små diskrete bobler i mundfylden gør det til en læskende og yderst drikbar øl.

Sample tasted at Ølkonsortiet. Thanks to Enjoyit. Dark amber with white head. Aroma fresh grassy, citrus notes, nice. Taste dry and hoppy with some good underlaying malt. A wellcomposed beer. Unfortunately it was the only bottle in the store, I would like to taste it a little more.

Enjoyit (3455) - Vadum, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2010
Amber of color with a white head. An aroma of grapefruit, hops, apples and caramel. A flavor of grapefruits, hops, bitter, weak sweets and a dry finish.

From tap at Ølbaren. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, dense and off-white head. Aroma is crisp hops fruity, light peachy and mango/tangerine. Crisp hoppy flavoured, light roasted caramel malty. Bitter and citric finish. Lasting malty impression to the hops flavours.

Smagt ved ølsmagning i Valhal Frederikssund God duft af humle (citrus og blomster) god bitterhed i smagen. I min smag mangler den lidt samlet profil (malt og humle).

Bottle. High creamy and lasting white head. Hazy dark brown body. Fruity hoppy caramel malt aroma. Dry and dustry mild caramel barley malt flavor with low carbonation and a short aftertaste.
