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.

Hoppsan (129) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2014
65 cl bottle. Pours hazy beer with medium, o/w head. Caramel, Chardonnay and apricot in aroma and taste. Medium carbonation and finish. The high ABV gives it more of a BW character than an IIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pelna paleta smakowa i zapachowa od arbuza melon po ananasa oraz rozowe grejfruty. Slodowosc w smaku bogata ale gorycz i owocowosc w piwie mocno rownowazy. Piwo mocne czuje sie je w glowie, lecz nawet odrobiny jej mocy sie nie wyczuwa. Piekny kolor dosc ciemny braz z ciemna czerwienia, spora piana oblepiajaca szklo, bezowa jest bardzo trwala. Super piwo.

Cunningham (4342) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Just opening this bottle was amazing. The tropical fruity aroma just hit you like a rock. Really pleasant and lovely rich tropical fruity. Also some flowery and caramel notes after a while. Maybe not so good for the eye. Cloudy brownish golden color with a off white head. Good lacing though. Medium + body. Not as sweet as expected and off course a rich bitterness. Quite good carbonation in this one. Helped it stay fresh a bit longer. Flavor….probably a bit overripe fruity. Malty and hoppy. Some alcohol when it got warmer. Overall a very powerful and balanced ale. Recommendable.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order, Sweden]

Flaska från Systembolaget, delad med @msbrindbergs. Grumlig bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar kåda och citrus. Fyllig kåda och lite pepprig tobak i smaken. Riktigt bra dipa!

MSBrindbergs (247) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Flaska delad med MrHult, stort tack! Bra grumlig bärnsten med fällning och vitt skum. Doftat klassisk dipa, mustigt och grapetoner. Mycket bra tropisk fruktsmak med en jättefin beska. Dör ut lite fort tyvärr. Som en fatamorgana, fast lite fattigare. I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Off white head, amber body clear. Lots of lemony hops to the nose, plus caramels. Taste; hops, strong aramel, bitter prune, lemon and grapefruit. Clean and strong on palate. Finishes still fruity, caramel, some warmth. Powerful. [50cl br btl abv9.3%, B@SB, T@Middelfart Fyn DK]

Cool_Bond (1254) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
The aroma is of tropical fruits. The taste is well-hopped and fruity. The aftertaste has a heavy bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Good but not so special. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
