Bottle from Khioshk in Copenhagen. It poured a hazy orange-brown liquid with a dirty white head. Mild smell with a light grassy aroma and some fruits. Mild hoppy taste with some grass and some fruits. A bit to mild, needs a partner.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy very dark orange with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of grassy citrus and some floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Pine and citrus with grapefruit. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours a rustic dark murky orange/brown with a thick bubbly off-white head. Aroma of grass, sprite soda, wet tree bark, wood, some mild fresh resinous notes. Flavour of dirty grass, wet straw, stale in an earthy way. Like being in a barn with a damaged roof after a huge rain storm - in a glass. Acetone-like aftertaste. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a murky brownish orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of spicy hops, butterscotch, and cracker malt - the spice is definitely prominent on these cluster hops. Flavour is more muted, with a slight metallic tone dulling the spiciness of the hops, no detection of the butterscotch, backed by lots of crackery malts. Sort a wet earthy quality to it too. Either this is not the most interesting IPA recipe, or the hop is kind of boring. Nevertheless, a solid thirst-quenching IPA, but lacks anything memorable or palate-tantalizing.

Pours cloudy amber color with lofty tan head. Smells of wet cardboard, mild fruit, spice. Taste is Spice, fruit, caramel malt ending with dryness and slight bitterness. A little oily, light/medium body with crisp carbonation. Overall an enjoyable and interesting IPA.

12oz bottle shared amongst friends. Opened along side others from the Single Hop series. Another one that I liked but didn’t really pull anything super specific from. A good drinking IPA none the less.
