TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
Elegant rich foam that has lasting durability. It smells slightly malty with tasty hops. American hops contribute with delicate flavors of peach, apricot, passion fruit and other nondescript exotic fruits. Malt sweetness reminiscent of honey, but only briefly. It is a distinctive hoppy IPA, which does not leave any doubt about the type of accuracy. Thoroughbred IPA that beats through with hoppy richness and hides the high alcohol fine.

Niller (1130) - Hammel, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2015

DraftDodger (727) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2015
Copenhagen 21/3 2015. 50 cl bottle. Farewell present from former colleague. Very dark label with cartoon Einstein character riding a rocket armed with two beers. Pours hazy golden brown with persistent white head. Aroma is sharp and fruity. A mix of sweet fruits like peach, mango and berries and tartness. Some alcohol in there as well. Soft carbonation. The fruity sweetness is more subdued in the taste which is dominated by a dry bitterness and distinct boozy alcohol lingering in the aftertaste. A more suitable name could be "Booze Explosion".

PapaVillum (765) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2015
0,5 L, flaske, 8,8 % ABV, Batch nr. RØ459, BB 15/10/15, købt på fØL (Frederikssund Øl Festival), 10. februar 2015. Sirupsfarvet, ufiltreret og rolig Imperial IPA/dIPA med flot hvid skumkrone på 4 cm tykkelse, som svinder til 1-2 cm efter kort tid. Lidt overraskende aroma: sødme er det første indtryk, men dernæst rammer det syrlige ens næsebor. Appelsin, lime, brød, remonce. Virkelig god og mere sødlig smag end andre dIPA'er, samtidig udfordrende med dybde, men lidt tynd i afslutningen af smagsbilledet. Der fornemmes både appelsin og grapefrugt i smagen og masser af amerikansk humle. Let til medium sødme, medium bitter og zero sur eller salt. Det Lille Bryggeri har ofte formået at tilføje deres bryg den helt rette karbonering, og det gør sig også gældende hér. Friskhed bevaret samtidig med, at øllet er lækkert blødt og perlende. Kroppen er medium fyldig, og konsistensen olieret til cremet. Kort bitter afslutning med lille fin sødme. En generelt sødligere dIPA end andre jeg har smagt, men velsmagende. Nye Imperial IPA-smagere kan begynde her.

Camons (8742) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle @ Home. Pours dark golden with a lasting offwhite head. Aroma of malt, sweet fruity hops, peach, strawberry, light citrus. Flavor is rather sweet, heavy malty, caramel, fruity hops, alcohol. Medium to full body, average carbonation, light bitter finish with some warming alcohol. Not bad, but somehow to sweet and boozy. 060215

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Big offwhite head. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Spicy oily honey aroma is kind of vague, with syrupy notes. Sweet, and faintly acidic, spicy wooden fruity taste with honey notes. Full-bodied. Somewhat hot mouthfeel. Dryish spicy fruity wooden aftertaste with resiny notes. Not that much hops, frankly, which is a bit odd given the name. Decent, but not a success. (0.5l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

TBone (14902) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle 500ml@ Beer Hunters. Clear golden color, small steady white head. Piney, light burned rubber notes. Medium-bodied. Thin candyish-piney, a bit grainy and alcoholic flavor. Not very flavourish.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear golden beer with a huge lacy white head. Hoppy sweetish aroma with herbal notes. Strange hoppy sweetish flavour with grassy hints.
