MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 7.9%. Grapefruit hop aroma. Cloudy amber colour. Good stable creamy white head. The flavour is quite bitter. Has a lot of grapefruit, both the flavour and the bitterness. Spicy finish along with a good alcohol level. The rather uncompromising bitterness gets a bit much after a while, on the other hand, the sweetness does balance it off a bit. Oh, well...
