0.5L bottle from Kihoskh, København. A finger of dense white foam, atop a dim orangey-golden body. Nice hop aroma. Clean grapefruity, with notes of peaches, flowers and resin. Taste is hop driven with resiny hop oils, citrus fruits and spices. Subdued, light sourish-sweet and toasted malt base. Light to medium full. Slick in the mouth. Balanced malty, fruity and bitter finish. A fine one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottiglia 500ml. Colore arancio, con una bella schiuma bianca, birra interessante, un APA a tutto tondo dove predominano i luppoli, ma riesce a rimanere complessa con note fruttate ed agrumate.
il finale e asciutto, pulisce la bocca in maniera decisa.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 (on tap @ Café Langebro, September 30th 2011) Pours a clear amber with rich, white head, retention and lace. Aroma is floral, hoppy goodness with perhaps a hint of cat’s piss. Lively carbonation, oily texture, full-bodied and a pleasant bitter finish. The taste is moderately bitter with a fruity quality and perhaps a hint of bread.
(on tap @ Café Langebro, July 16th 2011) Pours a clear amber white little, off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma is pleasant: Fresh floral character with a distinct, malty note. Full-bodied on the palate with an oily texture, medium carbonation and a long, dry finish. The taste is bitter but balanced by a sweetness and wrapped in pleasantly floral notes. Girlfriend says: "It’s nicely refreshing." (Aroma: 7; App: 4; Taste: 8; Pal: 4; Overall: 16)

Love the colour of this beer. Smell and taste are a bit dull and boring. This is a beer you drink and forget. Glad i took notes.
