Flaske innkjøpt på Ølbutikken juli-10: husker ikke denne som spesielt god, så den bør jeg kanskje prøve på nytt neste gang i København.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy amber color; generous creamy head. Very nice aroma, hoppy, fruity, very citrusy, with hints of lemon peel, chamomile and tiglio (lime / linden), light cheesy yeast too. Good caramel flavor, with a clear lemony and buttery cookies presence; the body gets drier and thinner at the end, while the roasted malt is increasing. Strong bitterness, quite resiny, fairly fruit too. Good IPA, a bit too dark and buttery maybe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy medium orange to amber beer with frothy, long lasting, off-white head. Aroma is medium malty and heavy hoppy, with notes of caramel, toffee, grapefruit and peach. Flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitter with a hoppy finish as sharp as a knife. Medium body, but a rather harsh texture, average carbonation - the oak doesn’t really do much good here, except for maybe giving the beer a slightly hard, astringent edge, that I’d rather be without.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy brown body, off white head. Aroma of fresh hops, nice sweet malt, pine forest, dark citrus fruits. Lots of bitterness. Some smoke in flavour, otherwise flavour is little lighter than aroma.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber colour with frothy head. Stale aroma and not much hops detected, probably old-ish bottle. Fruity and stale and not much hoppiness in flavour either but the bitterness is there. Poor example of the IPA-style with semi-dark malts unfortunately.
