Rather light and somewhat sweet aroma with caramel, hops and fruits. Flavour is somewhat sweet with resin, hops, some semi-ripe fruits and hints of berries. Some bready malt also. Palate becomes sticky after some sips. An IPA on the sweet side with moderate hopping.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Mikkeller bar. Pours a near clear champagne-brown body with a small just off-white sidesticking head. Fruity and yeasty-sweet on the aroma. Not hoppy at all actually. Light yeasty and some white sugar is the main aromas here. Average carbonated and a light sticky mouthfeel. Really sweet this one. Tons of pink bubblegum and sugar on top. Well, OK, maybe not that bad but it’s quite far out there on the sweet side. Something that reminds me of a rye-IPA I once had. You sure this is a IPA? Quite uncommon indeed this. 06.01.2012
