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.
