COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

Pours a slightly cloudy tawny color, khaki colored head. Good retention, nice lacing. Musky citrus aromas, light pine resin. Wow, flavor is odd yet intense. Sweet tea, citrus honey, some alcohol burn...faint. nice imperial ipa, will do this one again.

Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours golden amber color with a two finger head formed upon pouring. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading over about a one minute time period to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a bready malt smell mixed with some more dank herbal and earthy hop smells. Along with these smells comes some other hop aromas of a grapefruit nature as well as a little bit of a floral hop smell. A rather decent sum of a boozy aroma is there as well giving an overall slightly more warming smell. Taste – The taste begins with a strong bready flavor mixed with a good showing of an grapefruit and earthy hop right from the start. There is also a good showing of a caramel malt right from the start, which as the taste advances is joined by some lighter and tropical fruit tastes, although these remain relatively light throughout the taste. The earthy hop increases in intensity and is joined by some flavors of an herbal and floral hop taste more toward the end bringing a bit of dank, greenness to the tongue. Toward the end a booziness really starts showing up strong and mixes with the malty and hopped taste to leave somewhat off (but not too off), rather warming and dank hopped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are rather fitting for the style, although a little too much for the dank tastes of the brew, with a slightly thinner body possibly having been better for the “greener” flavors of the brew. Overall – A decent double, but a little too boozy and dank for my taste. Just alright and for the larger price tag, really not worth it overall.

zach8270 (3467) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy orange with a puffy head. Lightly sweet aroma with a good amount of citrus and floral notes and a slight vegetal undertone. Bitingly bitter and spicy hops at the start that basically go all the way through the flavor. Completely overpowers everything.

12oz bottle shared by Dan P. Poured a golden orange color with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma and taste of syrupy citrus fruit, caramel malt, grass, and hints of pine. Lots of grassy citrus bitterness in the flavor.

Sdaniel90 (372) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2014
3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. Orange/amber. Deep floral aroma with subtle pine and caramel hints with light grapefruit and citrus undertones. Medium bodied. Heavy bitterness with low sweetness and a strong alcohol finish. Robust and complex, not the most drinkable of IPAs, but magnificent.

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
Cloudy with evidence of sediment, fresh fruity aroma, solid carbonation, leaving a heavy bitter aftertaste, for such a strong bodied beer this is very palatable, excellent

BeerGolem (682) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle 12 fl. oz. ours copper-amber with medium head. Interesting aroma featuring malt, pine, hops, fruits and alcohol. Taste is heavy on alcohol and sugar, too much for my taste. Balance is therefore lacking.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thick slightly off-white head. Aromas of grassy hops, slight caramel malt. Some citrus and orange peel. It’s not that strong. Sadly I didn’t drink this fresh. Taste is quite the same. Bit alcoholic. More caramel.
