4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Fermentoren, Copenhagen.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a strong lacy head. Aroma of strong floral hops, grapefruit and caramel. Flavour of strong, bitter, floral hops, grapefruit, caramel and biscuity malts. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, strong bitter finish with exotic fruits. Excellent stuff, pretty much a good Pliny the Elder clone.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ CBC. Hazy orange with a tight white head. The nose is light fruit salad, some cut grass and fresh gerb garden. The taste is mango, pineapple, tropical citrus fruits with a malty, jammy finish. The body’s actually quite full for an IPA. Sweet. Overall, decent, though I don’t think this was on top form! Hints of tobacco on the finish.

Pours light orange with a smooth sticky head. Aroma of lemon, fruity hops, malts and caramel. Taste is very bitter and fruity hoppy with some caramel malts. Finish is lingering bitter and fruity. Nice, very hoppy and fresh American style IPA. Reminds me a bit of Pliny the Elder.

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Hazy honey-hued orange body, small white head. Aroma is peppery biscuit tones, butterscotch, caramel and hints of floral hops. Taste is grassy bitter hops lasting throughout the entire palate, with a nice caramel malty backdrop. A bit one-dimensionally bitter perhaps, but OK.
