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.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle… Hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head that never fully dissipates. As soon as I pop the cap, tropical fruits hit me in a big way. After the pour, notes of raw wood, funky laundry, bready yeast, alcohol and unleavened bread (cracker) are detected. Full-bodied and chewy with tingly carbonation. The flavor offers rich caramel malts, but they are overshadowed by heavily bitter, tannic, resinous hops. Finishes bitter, tongue-numbing and bone-dry. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

ClubGonzo (4240) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle from Høkeren, Copenhagen. Pours a clear, deep light amber-colored body with a big, white head. Nose gives me well-toned floral, fruity hops: raspberries, peaches, honey-tainted floral notes. Nice. Taste is more malty and round than expected from the aroma, with hints of peaches and grassy, earthy notes finely interconnected throughout the palate. Bitter aftertaste, but just enough to sharpen your lust for another sip. Very well integrated and fresh-tasting. This is one surprisingly balanced IPA from BrewDog, whom I’ve come to associate with more or less excessive experimental stuff. Hårdkogt IPA, despite the name ("Hårdkogt" means "hard boiled") in Danish) is a solid and easy-going, yet tasteful creation from my favorite Scots. Bullseye.

330ml bottle bought at Barley Wine in central Copenhagen. Near-clear, golden body. Decent,off-white head blanketing the glassware. Hoppy aroma including dried fruits. Jam-like taste sustained by almond and caramel malts. Rounded, dry bitter endnotes (hotel room, Copenhagen 11.11.2010).
