4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed a 400 mL draft of this beer in a narrow wine-type glass at the Mikkeller bar in southwest Copenhagen. The beer had a cloudy dark amber-straw color with a smaller foamy white head with shorter retention, good cling, and great lacing. Its aroma was a mix of floral and pine hops with some citrus, spices, and a bit of corriander. The taste was excellent, featuring a bitter floral hops character with grainy notes, citrus, and fruit flavors, and was a touch sweet. The body was somewhat creamy and a bit dry with a thicker mouthfeel and a slight alcohol presence. A superb and memorable IPA, one of the best I have had, although quite expensive.

Bottle to tulip
Orange, grapefruit, caramel, and pine resin. Cloudy amber with a thin off white head. Taste is papaya, mango and other tropical fruit, grapefruit, caramel and loads of bitterness. The sweetness comes first and then is taken over by the bitterness. There’s somewhat a loss of balance with that.
