Standardly American beer with hops overpowering any other sensation on the beer. Not pleasant at all and would not recommend in any way unless you have a hop fetish

Draught at Ørsted Ølbar. Hazy orange with a small white head. Well tuned aroma with piney, resiny and light citrysy hops plus hints of caramel malts. Sweet malty flavor with a smooth yet bitter mostly herbal hop finish. Medium bitter, extremely well balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is fresh and filled with herby/earthy hops and some bread/yeast. Pours a decent pale gold with a medium sized foam. Flavors are dough, hay and bread upfront with a decent hop bitterness. Its a little watery tasting and not very full flavored. Overall, this is a decent IPA at best, it tastes very watered down and theres not a whole lot going on flavorwise. I’d give this a D+ rating.

Good aroma, you can smell the hops trying to escape. Surprisingly firm and foamy head will stick around until the beer is gone. Monster hops, but the minimal malt balance is just right, doesn't fight the bitterness, but adds some complexity to the flavor and takes a tooth or two off the hops bite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Fairly clear golden amber pour with a lasting foamy off-white head. Aroma is definitely hoppy, but not aggressively so. It has pine and citrus notes and is spicy and floral with a hint of funk. Flavour pretty much mirrors the aroma with spicy, floral and funky hints creeping in around the notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine, mint and caramel. Mouthfeel is sticky but also quite dry with moderate carbonation and a long bitter finish. A little different to most of the IIPAs I have tried in that the hoppiness is somewhat subdued and the hint of funkiness almost gives it a Belgian quality. Very nice all the same and rather compelling.
