COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: made for the Danish beer importer "Drikkeriget".

Danish: Denne lille flaske har en stor historie at fortælle.
2.204 maltede Maris Otter bygkorn gav alt, hvad de havde at tilbyde denne verden for at grundlægge den dybe, delikate karamelmaltede bund.
Et massivt antal humleblomster ofrede sig i et vulkansk udbrud i brygkedlen for at sikre en fetichlignende afstraffelse af din mund.
9.900.000.000 gærceller fermenterede febrilsk deres små hjerter ud for på magisk vis at omdanne maltets sukker til den dejligste alkohol i dybet af gærtankene.
Denne ale har mere britisk humle og bitterhed end nogen anden øl brygget i Storbritannien, en ekstrem rutsjebanetur for freaks, sigøjnere og internationale skak-superstjerner.
Hårdkogt IPA er det appetitvækkende resultat af et bryghistorisk topmøde mellem de skandinaviske ølfilantroper, Drikkeriget og UK’s enfant terrible, BrewDog.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2011
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Dark amber colour with lasting, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with orange peel, caramel and dried apricots. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, dried fruit, orange peel and a generous earthy, citrussy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. Very nice and tasty.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2011
Orange colored brew. Aroma has a good amount of hops, citrus, pine. Flavor has a moderate hoppy bitterness, nice malty backbone.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
Dirty blonde and hazy. Mango/melon aroma with some light chewy elements, maybe some biscuits. Thick malts and tropical fruits. Rather muted and vague, with lots of bitterness and lots of maltiness too but neither really comes together all that well.

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2011
I was a little disappointed by this beer. It’s still good and I’d certainly drink it again when I have the opportunity, but still I had higher expectations. Nice IPA but not much more.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle @ Tel Aviv tasting. Hazy deep orange hue. Smells very chewy! Finishes very astringent, like tobacco or persimmon dryness on the tongue. Strangely seems thin for being quite hot. Has grapefruit and overripe pineapple. Although it grows on me never ceases to just be more than an odd beer.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Der hopfige Antrunk wird von dunklen, zunehmend rauchigen Malznoten begleitet. Das Ganze hat einen eindeutigen Whiskeytouch, der auch durch das kurze alkhololische Brennen bestätigt wird. Danach zeigt das Bier seine getreidige Seite, ohne jedoch von seinen Grundaromen abzurücken. Aromatisch, die Rauchnoten nehmen dabei eher zu als ab. Ein breites Spektrum von Aromen wird im Abgang geboten, fruchtig, rauchig, dazu hopfig und hefig – alles gut aufeinander abgestimmt. 8/13/13/13/11/13
