Bottle. Poured a hazy dark orange color. The head was thick and off white with good retention and lacing. Attractive aroma of pine, caramel, orange, and tropical fruits. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with assertive bitterness. Pine, soft caramel malt, citrus liqueur, and earthy hop flavors. About as good as a DIPA can be.

I’ve given outside of the US breweries plently of chances to make IPA and this is no exception. I don’t think we should give the danish an A for making an IPA, when most americans IPAs just blow this out of the water.

Tung och lite spritig, mycket frukt ger en ganska fyllig vätska. Ganska het men oh så trevlig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a medium off white head, which slowly deflates, with attractive lacing over a hazy, light amber (SRM 8) body....nose is pine, pineapple, light citrus, toffee/caramel.....taste is grass, citrus, pine, light toffee/caramel, finishing with a medium, lingering bitter finish....mouth feel is medium, slightly sticky, with a light alcohol bite. This is lighter than many in the genre. It is nicely balanced, and especially the hops do not dominate overly much. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7
