3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours a clear, deep golden with a firm, medium frothy white head. Aroma is deeply hoppy with butter, grass, citrus and grapefruit. Feels powerful, but has a great balance to it still. Lively mouthfeel, but also rather full, getting more oily as it warms. Flavour is nicely sweet at first, some sweet caramel and malts. Then a sh**-load of hops take over, never burning. But in the aftertaste, there is a heavily dry hoppiness and it lasts for a very long time. I can’t say that this is ever complex, but still a great fresh beer.

Bomber. Aroma of resin and citrus (though not exactly grapefruit). Amber color with a decent white head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. The flavor is something caramel with a lot of floral and noble hop. The hop has the lead, and the malt slips away. The finish is decently dry, and the hop continues to build. It’s actually rather soft and smooth for such a hoppy drink.

Clear copper/amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Most awesome GD hoppy aroma. Grass, citrus, tobacco, and a little peach. Plenty of malt richness and sweetness, and a smooth velvet mouthfeel. Wonderful APA flavour and bitterness, with that perfect GD balance.

Frisch hopfiger, sehr grasiger Antrunk. Wenig herbe, das Bier ist komplett auf die hopfige Getreidigkeit aufgebaut. Ziemlich eigen ist auch der Abgang, frisch aber doch ein wenig muffig, Grasig-bitterer Abgang, weich, erstaunlich süffig. Gelungenes Bier! 7/10/9/10/11/11
