hazy muted orange, 3 finger creamy head. Nose is incredibly pine-forward and resinous. almost dank. sweet nose as well. Very powerful bitterness. lovely sweetness, crisp with an insane pine resin. One of my favorite hops and just a hint of off flavors.

swampwater (13) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Day 8 of Julepakkekalender from Mikkeller. Bottled.

Aroma: A very strong hop flavour - it has a floral quality. A touch of wheat, and coriander.
Appearance: Pours a murky amber colour. Medium head.
Taste: A very bitter hoppy, and citrus taste upfront. Slight orange peel aftertaste.
Palate: Very bitter, with a minute amount of sweetness, followed by another hit of bitterness. Medium carbonation. Medium body.
Overall: The floral, hoppy aroma is really nice. The bitter taste in this beer is very overpowering, although there is a "sweet spot" that’s enjoyable... before the hit of the bitter aftertaste. Not one I could drink a lot of, but a lot if interesting aromas are what make this beer special!
