Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Muddy blond color; creamy head. Beautiful hop aroma, fruity: peach, lemon; with floral notes, elderflowers. The body is lean; the mouthfeel is dry; it has a bit too much carbonation; unfortunately there is some yeast flavor, that with the high bitterness contributes to some astringency; the hopping has fruity notes, but the bitterness level, mostly in the final, is too high, and screens too much all the qualities in this beer. Excessive.

On tap at Bier Temple. Cloudy amber beer, decent white head. Light semi dry palate. Nice fresh Citra and Sorachi. Orangey Citra with a little bitterness. Creamy lemon from the Sorachi. Trace of grapefruit in the semi dry finish. Hugely drinkable and I had four of five of these whilst watching Barcelona decimate Shaktar! Always thought that Citra and Sorachi would be natural bedfellowes!

Hoprider (105) - DENMARK - APR 20, 2011
Tap @ Beer Temple. Hazy light orange appearance. Fresh floral smell. The taste is acidic and drying without many of the tropic fruit flavors you usually find in heavy hopped beers. Light bodied and fresh is the final verdict.
