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.

jesperhammer (2888) - Copenhagen, - MAY 16, 2009
15-May-2009 Bottle at Ølfestivalen. Dark abbey ale look and very hazy. Is it really a strong ale? Very dark, darkere than IIPA. Is it really 130 IBU?, it does not show. Very malty for an IIPA. This is really wild. MUST buy.

esox (1064) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2014
Draught. Cloudy amber color, nice creamy head. Sweet floral and slightly earthy hoppy nose, ripe peaches and pineapples when warm, sweet maltiness, grains. Worty and way too sweet maltiness hides most of the hop flavor. Earthy/herbal bitterness in the finish. Medium to full bodied, heavy and sugary. Hides alcohol, though.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orangée, col beige voire blanc cassé. Arôme est houblonné sur des pointes de résineux voire d’aiguilles de pin, le malté restant quant à lui plus en retrait. Palais est aussi axé sur le houblonné, résineux, malt caramel sur un léger fleuri et herbacé ponctué par de fines notes agrumes avec un fini clairement orienté liquoreux indiquant un résiduel sucré. Au fini l’alcool se fait bien ressentir, une version plus légère aurait été plus judicieuse.

Trappist1 (492) - Diest, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2014
From tap@hoppy loft delirium. Dark orange color, hazy, white head. Nose is hoppy, fruity, yeast. Taste gives grapefruit, some raisins. Some malts in the back (as a basic skeleton). This brew is extremely bitter, takes you down. Overdone? Yes, bit greatly overdone... Sometimes you have to go all the way. Oh, this one takes you all the way... Maybe the name of (hoppy) vikings is well thought about.....

VastActiv (2825) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Tap at Olhus Kopenhavn, Helsinki. Colour is clear deep orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, piney, hops and malts. Simple dipa but better than average.

poech73 (187) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
Au fût @ Hoppy Loft (30/08/2014). II IPA très amère et très alcoolisée.
Au départ, je reçois un beau nez parfumé fleuri, fruité sur l’abricot, le caramel liquoreux avec une pointe d’âcreté. La bouche découvre une belle lourdeur en sucre mais pas en malt! Ici l’alcool, quand même élevé relève des arômes maltés avec des saveurs panifiées assez fines et accompagné d’un caramel au goût fruité citronné ( ou autre agrumes: orange, abricot?) et puis qui se termine sur un houblonnage acre qui rend la langue un peu rêche. Je trouve que l’alcool associé à l’IBU élevé rendent cette âcreté trop prépondérante. Bière un peu fat.

Thanks! Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark amber, little white head. Thick resin grapefruit peel, touch brown sugar, herbal,..; Bitter herbal & pine resin taste, sweet malty, strong on odd herbal taste, thick malts,… Same for body. I’m not the biggest fan of this strong bitter herbal taste & herbal pine resin, still I did quite enjoy it. Neat but not stellar.

fantti (704) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Kaatuu snifteriin ruskeanoranssina ja melko sameana, noin sormen paksuisella melko kestävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa päällimmäisenä on karamellinen ja sokerinen makeus, jonka seassa havuista ja puumaista humalointia. Sitrustakin on mukana jonkin verran, mutta humalointi hieman jää makean maltaisuuden alle. Maku on hyvin paljon humalapää edellä tuleva. Havua ja puuta löytyy reilusti, makeutta tulee jälkimaussa jonkin verran mukaan. Ruohoisuuttakin on. Suutuntuma on alkuun makea, mutta kuivuu hyvin loppuun. Alkoholikin tuntuu hieman terävämpänä potkuna. Keskiverto DIPA, jossa tuoksu on makean maltaan dominoiva ja maku taas enemmän humalat edellä. Ei täysin tasapainossa.

Brandman (2076) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle at Helsingin Jalkapallopubi. Cloudy amber body, offwhite head. Aroma has pungent caramel, fruits and some burned yeast. Very bitter. Lost its balance.
