3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus and malt aroma. Deep reddish amber color. Creamy hoppy taste, finishing with a rough bitter character. Must be a lot of malt to have some lingering sweetness side by side with the bitterness. Bittersweet. Works for me. The hops linger on the tongue, and the light citrus persists. A touch of astringency. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful dark copper colour with a tan head leaving som lace. Sweet American hop aroma, mostly on the peach and pine side. There is a hint of a sweet malty amber ale flavour, but soon enough it hits you in the head with a wonderful big and bitter hop flavour! Pine and peach all over the mouth and with a bitter grapefruit aftertaste. Yummy!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbaren, Cph. Pours a deep red with a small film head. Aroma has lots of American hoppiness as well as a light fruity edge and weak pine notes. Light caramel peeps through as well. Nice mouthfeel with lots of dryness. Great flavour, sweet caramel at first, then biscuit and maltiness before ending on a powerful dry hoppy note. Nice.
