3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Høkeren in Ravnsborgsgade, Copenhagen (appropriately enough). :-) Pours a clear deep golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is syrupy caramel, pine, apricot, hints of wet grass. Fresh. Taste is piney hops, grass, caramel, hints of resin, grapefruit and hints of apricot. Bitter, resinous finish with a medium body and carbonation. Straightforward and drinkable. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. High fluffy lasting white head. Hazy orange milky body. Sweet and dusty oranges lemon grass aroma plus something I cannot figure out. Pretty hoppy and bitter flavor on a solid malt base. Grass and pine notes. High carbonation. Long bitter finish. Alcohol level seems just right.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours golden yellow/orange with virtually no head. Aroma reminiscent to that of a traditional English bitter - fungi etc. Some hay and caramel, straw, malt heavy. Flavour is a little more interesting. Has a decent about of complexity and depth. Flavour is quite bitter, candied, boozy. More depth than Mad Dog, but still far from amazing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of straw, light orange, light citrusy hops, no malt backbone. Flavour is very light, seems more of a pale ale, with straw, bitter citrusy hops, light fruitiness. Very sharp astringency on the finish, turning a bit metallic as well. Not very inspiring at all.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Strikingly fruity aroma. Aroma is a mix of pitted fruit and citrus. Med body. There’s a little malt in the flavor, but lots and lots of hop. Finishes strongly but smoothly bitter.
