4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a luminescent, hazy, reddish amber colour, with some creamy, slightly tanned head that laces quite nicely. Aroma is of pine, grass, lemon and peaches, with a nice, floral-hop conclusion. Taste of caramel malt, dry pine, lemon and peach as well. Finishes off nicely with a heavy, yet balanced hop-finish. Very well-rounded and pleasant. Quite fresh and lively, despite a relatively light carbonation. Light body (although expanding a little as the hops kick in), thin, slightly oily texture. Long, hoppy, duration. Excellent and refreshing IPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colore marrone, aroma non esagerato per intensità, fruttato con note di pesca, frutti tropicali e luppolo. Al palato amaro molto intenso con luppolo, agrumi e mango. Finale lungo, molto amaro e luppolato. Intensa e complessa, raccomandata solo a chi piace una birra amara.

Murky orange with light brown head. Excellent lacing. Fresh dry hopped aroma along with some roasted malts. Bitter and light sweet with plenty of dry hop aroma released in the mouth. Full bodied. Leaves a long lasting bitter impression.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (66cl) from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. BB 11.9.2011. Wonderful-looking beer. Huge offwhite head, slowly cracking up with large bubbles, leaving lots of lacing. Dark amber colour, clear at first, some yeast haziness at final pouring. Strong, fat hoppy nose with spicy caramel malt. In the mouth the spices become more distinct; licorice, coriander seed - it’s on the verge of being too much, but it ends up on the right side. Great balance. Full bodied, slick, average carbonation. Never-ending hoppy bitterness with a good deal of sweetness. Top notch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours unclear dark brown with a small tanned head. Fresh hoppy aroma, fruity and grassy, this counts for the tasting department as well, solid bitterness. This beer is not balanced, just a hoppy worship

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big hoppy biscuity nose. Full bodied with a biscuity caramel start and big citrus and pine finish. As it warms it becomes a little leaden, but still a lovely beer, even at super premium prices. Thanks dancing volcano!
