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.

Sigmund (5705) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%, 70 IBU. Orange to amber colour, only slightly hazy, large white head. Nice aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and fruity and piney hops. Medium sweet flavour but still fairly light bodied, some caramel and orange marmalade again, followed by medium bitter hops. The aftertaste is piney and herbal, and quite bitter. Good beer.

Den var ikke lige mig! Elsker ellers IPA'ere, danske øl og ikke mindst øl fra Gravballe Bryghus. Men det var langt fra de bedre IPA'ere jeg ellers kender...

rlgk (13190) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2014
Sample at Nordic Brew 2014, Fredrikshavn, Denmark. Hazy golden, decent offwhite head. Hoppy aroma, grass, hay, floral, some citrus. Pretty much the same stuff in the flavor. Bitter hop finish.

Holmen1 (3410) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 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! Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal mars-15: blomster og karamell i skjønn forening. Bitterheten melder seg først når den treffer magen. Men ipa? Mer som en rund og innsmigrende barley wine light. Opprates fra 3.2, og må kjøpes neste gang jeg er på hytta.

brnandersen (2452) - 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 (1366) - 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 (1101) - 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.
