Hade inte ens hört talas om Apollo-humle tidigare. Tydligen en alfabomb på 15-17%. Kan ju aldrig bli bra att singelhoppa på en sådan humle. Fattar ju vem som helst

Tasted from the bottle, 08/03/2013. Aroma is sweet tropically fruity, sweet oranges, a bit floral. Taste is almost identical, but it's quite citrusy upfront and only then fruity sweet. Aftertaste is proper piny/hoppy bitter, lovely! Definitely recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad but also not great. The hop was a little too much on its own. Had a little belgo like funk.

Wowsers, I’ve rarely met a beer with an aroma like this - it’s like pouring caramel syrup straight up your nostrils! Slightly watery at the start of the taste, nothing really coming through the retronasals, despite the fizziness moving vapours around. There’s some dark sticky resiny hoppiness, and plenty of dark syruppy malts. I guess together they’re in balance with each other, but they’re both a bit disfunctional. Some huskiness and graininess in the bitter finish. Leaves the mouth a bit sticky. Very drinkable for 6.9%, it actually slips down quite easily, but in part that also means it’s a bit dull - there’s nothing saying "I’m here, and I’m interesting" (sorry, I don’t find sugar interesting). Perfectly adequate. I could drink it again.

Light haze on this darkish amber beer. Big fluffy white head. The head has a startling garlic flavour! Palate is smooth, a little soft and slightly dry. Creamy malt base - mild. The Apollo follows the head with more garlic and just a whisper of citrus. Finishes semi dry. Never had such a garlic led apollo beer!

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from Blackhearts & Sparrows. Nice balance. Aromas of biscuit, bread, and light herbal notes. Taste is sweet and bitter, long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a big frothy head.

Yorker (1192) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with an off-white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is caramel and mild floral and herbal hops. Flavour is floral, herbal, and caramel – with a dry finish.

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, some spruce. Pretty good and standard IPA.

Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Slightly hazy amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is burnt rubber, some slight cloakwater and mild herbal notes. Flavour is rather similar, has some slight catpee in the background. Hmm, not good. I will rather enjoy the aroma of a rotten eggfart than this beer. Atleast rotten eggfarts are funny. This beer is not.
