On tap. Pours a hazy amber with a lacing off-white head. Fat "hop juice" in the nose meaning no distinct hop sticking out, just massively hopped. Medium-bodied only, some fruit but fairly dry still with a spicy - almost herbal - hopping. Solid bitterness in the finish. 190610

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 6th May 2010.
On tap at the Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen. Amber beer with a small creamy head. Smooth and fairly dry palate. Decent toffeeish malt base underpins some fresh grapefruit and orange marmalade hops. Nice IPA - hoppy but not too aggressive. 3.5

31st December 2011
Palate is slightly soft with fine carbonation. A little creamy malt. Rich resinous hops. Marmalade, pine, peach and a trace of lime. Aniseed alcohol and a dry crisp finish. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Lovely rich hops!

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Very nice hop cones aroma (when I tried a week later at Ølbaren it was also cheesy). Strong toffee flavor, quite sweet, but also with a too evident alcohol impression, a bit similar too the Big Worst in a way that I don’t fancy. The body is even thinner than expected in the end. Dry strong ending bitterness, and more alcohol. A bit too boozy for my liking.
