COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Til humlevennerne. Det er vores hidtil mest humlede øl – en triple IPA med omkring 130 IBU. Vi har brugt bygmalte, hvoraf nogle har karamelkarakter. Farven er derfor gylden. Vi har tørhumlet øllet ved at lade det trække med humle under lagringen. Det er derfor man fornemmer en tydelig blomsterduft, når man hælder øllet i glasset. IPA er perfekt til de stærke oste. Humlens bitterhed passer rigtigt godt med ostens skarphed.

Holmen1 (4698) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2016
Fra flaske på DØE Lokomotivhallen mai-16 (dag 2) med Steven: let uklar gylden med ok skum. En dejlig blomsterpræget og superstærk ipa. Den gode maltbasen holder det hele på plads og den fremstår som elegant, blød og farlig.

MelvinKalksma (803) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, bread, pine, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly/medium bitter and medium/heavy dry with bread, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Overall:
This beer is balanced and intense, deep and complex. The malts are a bit too dominant for the hops however and the palate could be less average.

adasko (1774) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Tap in Piwna Stopa. This one is a beautiful beer. Awesome fruity hoppy aroma. Almost full body with very well balanced sweetness and bitterness. In the same time it’s quite drinkable. Very good style representant.
