20th September 2014
Zwanze Day at the Kernel. Thanks, as ever, to Mr Smith for sharing the HF goodies and this is a goody! Lightly hazy gold beer, big head, very pale cream colour. Palate is airy and a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Airy malts support lovely hops - Skunk and Motueka like sweet ish floralness. Light hops spice. Pine develops toward the light and semi dry finish. Piney skunk lingers on. Just really nicely joined up and very drinkable.

Fad, Mikkeller & Friends. Uklar ravfarvet, lavt off-white skum. Lidt henkogt i aromaen. Smager fantastisk. Karamel, grapefrugt, fersken, citrus, fyrnåle. God balance mellem maltsødme og humlebitterbitterhed. Fyldig og mild på een gang. Cremet tekstur, lang bitter finish. Sjældent god DIPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Mikkeller & Friends. Smell is very hoppy and has some notes of grass and hay. Pours pale orange with a small white head. Taste is a fresh sensation of hops, citrus and fresh fruits. Palate is light and fresh on the tongue. Overall a great solid DIPA which is highly recommended.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Appears with a very hazy amber body and a somewhat thin, off-white head that has as much heavy lace and film as its cousin Edward. Head regeneration is mediocre. The aroma on this one is far more pronounced than with Edward in that it happily exposes notes of tropical fruits, papaya, citrus and peach. The complexity of the aroma could easily be described in further adjectives were it not for the associative centres of my brain being somewhat impeded by the ambient noise of the environment. Oily texture, medium carbonation, more solid body with the inklings of rocket fuel only here it is refined enough to just be fruit juice with a lingering slightly sweet yet hoppy finish. Flavour is more taxing on the system yet stilll a well balanced mix of aroma notes, hop bitterness and a bit of sweetness. The eight percent of ABV is pretty well masked. Drinkable but still not my favourite style.
