Clear gold beer with a thick, foamy head. Light grapefruit aroma. Initial flavour is a hoppy, grapefruity blend and it has a sour, bitter finish that lingers nicely.

It pours a cloudy golden orange color with a full white head. It has a sour fruit smell. The taste is dominated by caramel malt with some floral hops. It has a strange bitter twang on the palate.

cloudy gold color; caramel, smoky aroma; fairly light; bitter with a fairly strong smoked malt flavor; fairly well balanced; bitter, smoky aftertaste; at first the smokiness took me by surprise, but after drinking a bit I began to enjoy it more

Theydon_Bois (8304) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle at home, from ABM, 06/07/14. Hazed golden orange with a good sized white head of bubbles. Nose is orange marmalade, straw, bread dough, citric peel, light floral notes, caramel. Taste comprises floral hops, light minerals, bitter orange, touch of grapefruit, honey, pithy citrics, mineral wash. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sharp citric and earthy hop bitterness in the close. Ok stuff, I’d put this more as an APA than IPA bearing in mind the ABV and hop contents.

PapaVillum (425) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
500 ml, flaske/bottle, 5,6 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 26. juni 2014. Flot ravfarvet og ufiltreret walisisk IPA med fin og enkel offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1 cm tykkelse. Klar og velduftende aroma af blomster, citrus og grapefrugt. Svage noter af humle. Holy moly, en dejlig smag! Humlet og krydret med en anelse sødme og en dejlig tør samt skarp afslutning. Dejlig balance mellem sødme og bitterhed, og billedet starter med sødmen og bitterheden hånd i hånd og sidst i dette, kommer det mere krydrede indtryk. Rolig, men også frisk mundfølelse med et indhold af kuldioxid på lige under medium. Eftersmagen er oveni god og af medium længde. Er meget begejstret over denne IPA og i tillæg til det gode indhold i flasken, må man bøje sig i støvet over "indpakningen", som jeg finder æstetisk smuk. Must have more!
