3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, bbe 06/04/14. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick, off-white head. Nose is sharp and citrusy hops, some pine needles with hints of red berries. Taste is big on piney and slightly fruity hops with faint bitterness on a nice, caramelly malt bed. Mouthfeel is crisp and a little sticky, nice, medium carbonation. Good and refreshing, though I do wish the ginger would make itself a little more known.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, November 2012.
Hazy orange with a small white head. Quite a lot of orange and mango in this one. Also citrus and notes of cookies. Very fresh and drinkable. The finish was bitter with some notes of spices.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Mikkeller/To Øl week, Ölrepubliken.
Lighter amber, off-white head, lacing.
Aroma: some spiciness, tropical fruits like peach and pineapple.
Taste: only light ginger, peach and peach candy, maybe some other tropical fruit, toffee. I got some hints of cardamom and cinnamon, but probably only by association.
This was nice.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a lasting white head. I’m not too keen on the aroma, slightly soapy, phenolic, yeasty, some fruit, green apple. Thought this might be infected but it tastes great. Juicy fruit, apricot, hint of ginger, not hugely hoppy. Enjoyable but the aroma lets it down for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Ölrepubliken on October 29, 2012
During the tap take over from Mikkeller and To Øl.
Slight bit hazy golden color, creamy off-white to yellow head. Very hoppy, floral, citrus, pine, US hops, sweet, caramel, touch of alcohol taste. Bitter and sort of spicy aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Nice and sweet, mmm.
Sweet, hoppy, spicy scent.
Taste is awesome, a bit less aBV and I could drink many of this in a row.
Don’t feel any ginger, but then I’ve noticed in the past that I don’t seem to pick up on ginger in beer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 Bottle. Pours orange, super hazy, with creamy white head. Notes of wet forrest, burned caramel, the nose sticky thing in ginger, some cooked vegetables, red grape and orange cest. Very fruity, complex and refreshing. The spices and the high abv adds a warming christmasy feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle poured in to a tulip. Lovely, slightly hazy copper-orange colour with a small white head. Aroma with lots of hops: Citrus, grapefruit, pines and floral notes. Malts are biscuits-style. Taste is medium bitter. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. Finishes bitter and spicy with ginger and citrus fruit. Nice IPA, the ginger is a good addition.
