Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place shared among a group of five locals. Pours a clear orange-copper color with a small off-white head that leaves a bit of lace- all 19 looked like this. Aroma was dominated by soap, earth, and cereal. The flavor had some light hops, grains, grass, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Fairly dull compared to others in the series.

On tap at the Mikkeller Pub
Copper hazy, thick white head. Smells of flowers and berries. Body is quite malty, some sweetness. Finish is hoppy and bitter but i miss more hop tones. I guess Willamette is too weak alone

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden amber with a good sized soapy beige head. The aroma has floral / powdery hoppiness and toasty caramel malt. There is also a lot of spicy phenolic traits. Medium body that’s lightly husky with mildly sharp carbonation. The taste starts off with very English-style earthiness to the hops, crackery malt and a bit of spice. The finish is fairly balanced with a larger that normal amount of malt showing through for the series and earthy hoppiness. Okay IPA.
