Amber and a bit hazy. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is yeasty and spicy, special hopped, not especial pleasent, but dominant. Flavos is strong, cheese, yeast, sweet, finish is bitter, even more unpleasent than the aroma.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very red chestnut body, a quite dark IPA, with a lasting creamy light brown head; Pleasant and strange nose, quite a bit of wort sweetness mixed with clear pine oil aromas, nice but a bit confusing; Huuuge small bubbled aroma on bitter but quite a bit sour body as well, broken?; The sourness grown in quite long finish, there is some sweetness as well, but the sour part is in control. Maybe broken?

Flaske. Flot mørk IPA. Masser af malt bakker denne fine øl op. Ikke å kraftig humleduft, og egentlig også en flot tilbagetrukket bitterhed, men alligevel en umiskendelig IPAer. Faktisk fantastisk drikbar og hvis det ikke var fordi man ville blive rygende stiv af at drikke den en hel aften ville det klart være min foretrukkende i disse varme vinteraftener.

Bottle: Nice beautyful nut color and a dense foam, just after opening the bottle I could pick up fresh hop in my kitchen. Piney, citrusy hop notes, not to complex, little alcohol here in the smell too. Opens gently in the mouth. Notes of grapefruit, damsons and cooked bread, little chocolate in the aftertaste. Long pleasant bitter finish, flawless!! Well done, easy to recommend!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy, copper-orange brew with a small off-white head. Piney and malty nose with some alcohol, a touch of fluor. Quite hoppy flavor, more on the hoppy side than the aroma is, but still with a nice malty sweetness. Pine and fluor as well. Full-bodied, almost astringent mouthfeel. Lovely bitter finish, citrusy and piney. The alcohol is quite evident, making it feel like it’s stronger than 7.8%. (080530)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber with a lasting white head. Strong aroma of classic American hoppiness, grapefruit and pine, with caramel malt in the background. Rather dry malty flavour with a hoppy bitterness and a sugary sweet note that’s not so good.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Slightly hazy dark reddish brown with a creamy and lacing yellowish/beige head. Fat and somewhat rustic hop aroma that isn’t completely pleasant - has an odd whiff of vegetables. Quite full-bodied with loads of caramel in the base and a somewhat dusty edge. Solid bitterness in the finish. But overall quite nice in spite of my complaints. 060608
