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.

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.

mgajdaczewa (716) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 17, 2015
W aromacie delicje z malinami i lekki karmel, genialny i smakowity. W smaku niestety dużo gorzej, drażniąco ziarniste i zbożowe, mało owocowe i pojawia się dziwna nuta, której nie potrafię nazwać, ale najbliżej jej jest do zbutwiałego drewna. Po czasie ta nuta już tak nie irytuje. Goryczka średnia, nieźle wkomponowana. Chyba nie było najświeższe, ale i tak ok.

Mesjasz (102) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Dark orange color, small white head. Aroma is hops with citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Powerful bitter taste with red grapefruit and resin. Well balanced with caramel sweetness from malt base. In aftertaste long bitterness, warming alcohol. Full body, oily texture, low carbonation, Nice beer for long nights.

magicmn (106) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 10, 2015
Suoerb fresh aroma of grapefruit, peaches and mandarine. Reach taste both of malty medium to high body with intensive but not rude notes of best american hops - fruits, mostly citruses bt you can feel some elegant grassy and floral notes. Very good balance overall.

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from my SAQ import. Pours a hazy amber colour with a beige frothy head, great retention and foamy lacing. Aromas of brown sugars, grass, raisins and mild citrus. Fruity malt taste with the bitterness being smooth and the mouthfeel, not really dry. Goes down very well overall because of this. The nose is kind of weird, but the mouth is smooth, so it is a pretty good Impy IPA.
