3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
EBF2008. It’s a slightly hazy, bronze colored beer and the aroma has notes of dusty, bitter and citrussy hops. The flavour has sweetness, a light bitterness, notes of dusty hops, apple, citrus and malt, and IMO it’s a bit monotonous.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fad. EBF 2008. I forhold til den foregående IPA er denne øl klart bedre. Mudret brun med en masse proteinklumper i. Men duften er umlet, og der er en fin bitterhed. Dejlig øl.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bishops Arms, Stockholm. A beautiful pour gave a huge, creamy yellowish head on top of the red copper beer. Milk chocolate aroma as well as fruit. In fact, very bitter, but still ending with dry chocolate flavours. Fruity hops. A bit too thin body for all the rich flavours. A magnificent beer it is. Original, too.

Draught at YNWA in kolding. Tasty brew indeed. Quite hazy brown colour with a medium off-white creamish head. Malty and quite fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a good frutiness with some caramel, malt and little bit of pine.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught, as Hantverksbryggeriet IPA, at Gastropub Nordic on 2008-08-08) Amber and clear. Dirty brown stained white big head. Sour and hoppy nose. Medium-bodied dry palate. Sour taste with lightly roasted malts, bitterness and fruitiness. The sourness makes me wonder whether there has happened some error in brewing process.
