visionthing (2393) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2012
33cl bottle from Kihoskh. Pours very dark, almost black with a nice beige head. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit, some tropical fruits and also roasted malt and hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Hops dominate at first but the darker aromas presents themselves after a while. Alcohol is well integrated. Surprisingly light body. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Hoppy, bitter finish with hints of alcohol and roasted malt. Quite nice and surprisingly easy to drink. Nice BIPA!

Bottle at Home from Ölbutikken. Helsingborg, March 2012.
Aromas of hops, grapefruit, grass, coffee. Some roasted notes a small chocolatey sweetness. Weak body unfortunately that can’t carry the taste though. The alcohol is well hidden though. Enjoyable but not special in any way.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
10-MAR-2012, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". Pours very dark brown, almost black with huge beige head that lasts and coats the glass. Very hoppy nose. Grape fruit and pine. OK, some roasted notes as well, but hops dominate. Same with the taste but the roasted malts are more evident, thougt. A touch of coffee and chocolate combined with the very strong hop profile. Fantastic brew.

thewolf (10781) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours completely black with a big, staying, creamy, light-beige head. Aroma has lots of pleasant citrus, grapefruit, resiny. Fresh. Nice mild roasted notes. Medium carbonation, pleasant dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Fairly light. Flavour is elegant, mild sweetness, softly roasted with some liqourice. Nice peachy, light piney, grapefruity hops with a nice citrus centre. Lovely lingering bitter finish, where the malt bill comes into its own. Lovely Black IPA.
