Bottle 50 cl at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is fresh and intense hoppy - pine needles, grapefruit, mango. Taste is dry caramel malty with a fruitbowl of hops and a little grass, easy drinkable yet complex, leading to a massive bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer poured amber and quite cloudy. Its head was quite small and white. Aroma had berries, malts, farmhouse and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, berries, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Nice hoppy pale ale but a bit musty and the aroma could have been hoppier.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; pours hazy amber, piney hop aroma, first sip is where the did that hop go? The malt in the taste overwhelms the hop bitterness that I wanted to taste. Not very well balanced an OK beer but didn’t live up to my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen (rated on May 10 2012). Dark golden, hazy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, berry/floral and citrus fruitiness and lots of grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel, berry/floral and citrus fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, faint caramel, light berry/floral fruitiness, piney hoppyness. Really nice roma, but flavor/finish lacks the fruitiness.

Great aroma of grassy hops. Even more on the taste - seems like lots of IBUs in this one. Pours a hazy amber. Powerful hoppy IPA.
