4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ ōlbutikken, Cph.
Pours clear amber with a big, frothy, off-white head. Rather large bubbles. Wonderful cascade aroma, lots of grapefruit, some slight caramel sweetness. Light citric as well. Wonderful dry and lightly creamy mouthfeel. Wow, there is some hops in this one! Very dry, lots of hops, good fruitiness, light citric tartness. Great balance of malts. This is surely a beer for hophead - thankfully Iím one if them!

33cl bottle in the hotel, reading "liarís poker" , crete. rethymno.
amber, large thick offwhite head.
aroma is pine, grapefruit, faint flowers, sweetness as honey and syrup.
flavor is pine, grapefruit, bitterness, grassy sweetness, ends grapefruity bitter. apart from the much hops dominated flavor, i get a malty sweetness for balance.
i love these single hop thingies, a good experiment and quite educational.

330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Rich dusty fruity aroma - peachy. Taste is initially very light and fruity. well balanced, but Anna thinks itís too hoppy. A bit of dust in the taste too, which spoils it a bit. Long fruity resiny hoppy finish is lovely.

A hazed reddish amber IPA with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, nice musty biscuit malt with smooth herbaceous and floral hops, nice and well balanced. In mouth, a rich biscuit malt with nice floral and resinous hops, piney and citrus. All the astringent bitterness as attenuated to a well balanced mix. Bieropholie imports.
