COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En kraftigere IPA end sædvanligt fra Grauballe, med 70 bitterenheder, 7,5% alkohol og en kraftig maltfylde til at bære humlen. Som sædvanligt er den gennemgående humle First Gold der sammen med Centennial giver en afdæmpet men tydelig humlearoma. Fokus er dog på humlesmagen der dækker hele spekteret fra blide nuancer til mere markerede toner.

Fra fad på Tap1 mai-14: deilig og kompleks, fint avrundet for sine 70IBU og 7,5%. Lett og elegant avslutning. Må prøves fra flaske. Kun min andre øl fra dette bryggeriet - dette frister til ytterligere innsats!

brnandersen (1959) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2014
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy, golden-amber with a small, white head. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, sweet, exotic fruits and a floral note. A subdued aroma. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and light bitter with fruits and caramel. Only lightly hopped for an IPA.

NordicV (1182) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2013
Bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av aprikoser och karamell. Detta åtekommer i smaken med lite citrus och en aning tallbarr. En OK vardags IPA.

humlelala (1015) - DENMARK - DEC 23, 2012
(50 cl bottle) pours a cloudy amber with little, white head. Aroma is biscuity, syrupy, grassy and DIPA-boozy. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body and a citrussy finish with considerable sweetness. Taste is biscuit, citrus fruit and sweetness. More DIPA than IPA in my booze-sensitive book. Not a fan of the English hop used.

KnutAlbert (6163) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle from Torvehalerne, KBH. Glowing brass clor. Malty body, a fine bouquet of hops, giving more fruit and flowers than bitterness. Ends up as most of their beers, pleasant, but not quite daring enough. Nice complex tail, though.

yngwie (13845) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2012
On tap at Ølfestival 2012. It pours a clear, golden body under an off-white finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is peachy with a light syrupy maltyness. Peaches, sugar, malts, some caramel hints and a touch of pinecones and bitterness in the flavor. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Decent bitterness in the end. A decent beer, but a bit on the sweet side, and quite boring. 120512

trapez (1515) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Rather weak aroma of hops and flowers. Unclear amber colour with beige head. Very pleasant flavour with caramel, grapefruit and some dried fruits. Pleasant soft mouthfeel despite the hups bitterness.
