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.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2011
Nice colour, half-hazy golden red with medium-sized white head. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, hops, flowers, camomille, vanilla. Very versatile. Quite... hoppy. Woody, very dry. Very dry indeed. This is really tasty...

mjs (4582) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2011
(Draught at Pikkulintu) The beer poured brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma was hoppy and sweet. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, sweetness, malts, mildly berries, white bread and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and berry. Not a bad brew but a bit the berriness was a bit too strong.

330ml bottle (Beerkompass.de)
6 Aggressively hoppy aroma, also drowning in sticky sweet caramel.
4 Devent orange, healthy off-white head.
6 Predictably unimaginitive mush of flavours in the mouth - no crispness, no definition, no class at all. Firstly there’s the diabetes-inducing level of caramel, and then the oh-no-not-again-is-this-the-only-recipe-they-have mess of bitter hops.
3 A full palate, slightly slick, crispened only by the carbonation.
11 Stodgy and sweet. Heavy and thoroughly unrefreshing. Not a good quaffer, and not a tasty sipper either. At least it covers the alcohol well, and it doesn’t have any production flaws (just design flaws).

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2011
bottle from Bierkompass. Hazy amber-brown colour, large white head. Piney hoppy nose. Full-bodied, malty, piney-resiny hop flavours dominate, shy citrusy fruitiness. Good!

JorisPPattyn (7906) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2010
Short-lived , dirty-beige head over veiled orange-amber beer. Very fruity nose with mandarine, orange, nectarine, but also melon, banana and caramel. Only hints at the real culprit: hops. Bitter, resiny flavour; hops all-omnipresent, some chewy malts, but more expressed in the MF, than in taste. Less fruity than the nose, however; hard, unripe grapes, bitter orange and bitter gourd. Rather well-bodied, and slick, to even oily and resiny; feels more carbonated than it looks. Aftertaste is however a bit dusty. It’s not really an IPA, neither an IIPA, but sits astride both. And misses something of both. Txs to Jan & Charlotte!

Christian (11086) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2010 Hazy amber with a small white head. Fruity hop aroma with citrus and peach. Dry and hoppy flavour with citrus and pine and some bread and caramel, before a bitter finish

Bottle that Fonefan kindly passed onto me at Kerstbier Festival, Essen, Belgique, 18.12.10 Cheers Jan & Charlotte Pours orangey amber with white filmy head. Touch of lavender but very bitter and pithy, some pine and resinous flavours. The bitterness lingers and is quite biting, really likeable. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2010
0.33L bottle. Tall fluffy blond top. Near-clear amber colored body. Vegetal hop aroma with notes of citrus-zest and resin. Also some doughy and lightly toasted malts. Fairly light-bodied with a medium sweet and a medium strong malt base. Fruity and lightly spiced flavoring hops. Substantial bitterness. Quite short, almost watered down, hop bitter finish.

rand (1290) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle 330 ml from www.erzbierschof.ch. Orangy-amber with millimeter foam. Hoppy aromas, citrus and pine. Bottom malt and toffy. The taste is equally hoppy, bitter herb, citrus, resin and reveals a creamy heart. Earthy beer, fresh hops, dry and deep bitterness. I’m curious about its IBU.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle. The aroma has strong citric hops. Clear, copper coloured beer with a lasting white head. The taste is citric, quite bitter and is very clean and crisp, refreshing. Very representative for the style. Much appreciated.
