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.

Une IPA riche et puissante au nez complexe où l’on retrouve des notes d’agrumes, de houblon, d’épices douces et à la bouche puissante et amère. Une vraie bière de viking !

PapaVillum (607) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2015
50 cl, flaske, 9,3 % ABV, BB: 15/01/17, købt på Hornbeers stand på FØL2015 i Frederikssund, 8. maj 2015. "Mørk sirup"/mørk rav-farvet og ufiltreret Double IPA eller Tripel IPA, som der står i beskrivelsen. Offwhite tætskummende skumtop på 3 cm, som svinder til et par mm. Humlearoma af blomster og en anelse citrus. Maltnuancer af hø. Derudover tydelige nuancer af grapefrugt og abrikos. Kraftig humlet smag med kæmpe krop og dybde i smag og bitterhed. Solid bitterhed og let sødme i noget nær perfekt balance. Intet surt eller salt. Udover den fyldige krop er øllet tilført en frisk og veltilpasset karbonering på et medium niveau. Olieret konsistens og bittersød crispy afslutning, som næsten rører det beskbitre område. Undertegnede har smagt dette bryg før, men jeg havde næsten glemt, hvor ypperlig en øl, det er. Spitzenklasse!

Barwa bursztynowa, piwo jest idealnie klarowne. Aromat masakruje nozdrza! Jest wybitnie chmielowy, słodki i owocowy, tak jakby wąchać świeżą mieszankę owoców tropikalnych. Po ogrzaniu na wierzch wychodzą bardziej nuty żywiczne i sosnowe. Tło stanowi karmel. W smaku piwo jest niezwykle pełne, gęste i zaklejające, Miałem wrażenie, że piję syrop słodowy. Karmel miesza się z owocami, nasuwając skojarzenie ze słodkimi landrynkami. Finisz to wysoka i wyraźna, żywiczna goryczka, która mimo wszystko nie daje rady zneutralizować słodyczy piwa. Alkohol choć w aromacie niewyczuwalny, to w smaku po ogrzaniu mocno daje o sobie znać.

A great deal of alcohol in this, but in a warming manner, not overpowering, perfectly completing the round mouthfeel and the thick body of this good beer.

Carries the alcohol with a rounded taste, not overpowering. Creamy on the mouth, not too bitter or too sweet

sharkydodson (529) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 27, 2015
the aroma of pine, citrus and some other tropical fruits... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of pine cones, grapefruit, spicy herbs and mango... aftertaste is dry, spicy and, a little bit, warming...

jookos (3227) - FINLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Tap@ølhus cph. Copper clear. Strong piney resinous deep caramelly nose. Feels like a sturdy nice iipa. Full bodied, slight toasty caramels, pines, forestyness. Soft smooth body though, doesnt ick even given the obviously massive malty sweetness. Pretty nice. Some woody spices there too.

Pours an amber or dark redh colour with a big white head. Smell of flowers, citrus and hops. Taste is interesting with a complex smooth and sharp flavours. Ends with a smokey almost bitter finish.
