COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Denne sorte amerikansk IPA er et samarbejde mellem Midtfyns Bryghus og vinderen af de Fynske, Danske og Nordiske Mesterskaber i håndbryg, Claus Christensen fra Munkebo Mikrobryg. Den er brygget med en unik blanding af de mest kraftfulde amerikanske humlesorter som giver en perfekt balance mellem humlen og noterne fra den ristede byg. Gleipner er Fenrisulvens kæde. Den er smedet af bjergenes rødder og kattepoters larm. Pas på, når du først har smagt den én gang, er du lænket til Ragnarok kommer.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2011
Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Roasty tropical fruit aroma with mealy earth notes. Dry-sweet tropical fruit and roasty malts taste with peppery earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, hottish mouthfeel. Dry-sweetish tropical fruit and roasty earth aftertaste with peppery notes. Nice, but not too fond of this style of beer. (0.1l draft at DBF’11.)

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle sample @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011. Near-black brown-red, small off-white head. Weird aroma of tar, rubber and classic IPA fruity/grassy notes. Original. In the mouth, the weirdness continues: rubber, tar, roasted malts and grassy tones. Not really a nice taste IMO, but some might like this stuff and it’s definitely original.
