3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
7th April 2011
Bottle from Bier Koning. Cloudy amber beer, little white head. Palate starts dry but turns softer. Dry carbonated bite. Fresh grassy grapefruit hops. Piney too with some orange underneath. Dry finish. Mildy bitter aftertaste. Nice but was expecting something a bit more extreme from a beer called ’Hop Bomb’

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, thick foamy white head that leaves loads of lacing. Aroma is full of hops, pine, floral, fruity and very lovely. The flavor is what you would expect from a very hoppy beer. Full of bitter pine, floral richness and a fruity sweet touch. Great balance. Very nice brew.

Mycket stor humledoft, lagom balanserad smak av humle och frukt, mycket fräsch och fin. Extremt lätt att dricka.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange/amber with a large white head. Really a lot of hops in both the aroma and taste. Also resin, pine, grape. Very drinkable, and not as bitter as expected, actually quite balanced in some way.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s an unclear, warm golden beer with a creamy and lasting head. The nose is met by a basket full of exotic fruits and citrus. The moderately sweet flavour has a very dry mouth-feel, and notes from the entire fruit basket followed by the citrus fruits – to put it short: It’s a lovely hop-juice. The finish is dry and slightly bitter.

From SkjoldBurne, Aarhus, DK.
Amber with white head. Aroma of grapefruit and malt. Flavor with citrus, caramel and fruit. Too bitter for an APA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ FairBar, Aarhus.
Muddy orange with a nice, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has powerful hops, citrus, pine, apricot, light apple, resiny. Medium carbonation, very dry mouthfeel. Flavour has good bitterness, light malty sweetness in the back. Citrus, light piney, mild apricot and peach. Long, lingering bitterness. Fairly one-sided, but fine nonetheless.
