3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Entered to celebrate my 2100th Danish rating. Draft. A red-amber beer with a thick orangey head. The aroma is very spicy hoppy, combined with notes of sweet malt, citrus, and pine needles, and a light earthy note. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spicy combined with medium notes of earth, grapefruit, orange peel, and pine needles, leading to an extremely bitter finish. Clearly better for bittering than aroma - a little raw as single hopped.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Ölbaren, Copenhagen, 21 May 2009) Reddish amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with orange, caramel and citrussy hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, orange peel and lots of citrussy hops in the finish. Possibly a bit more balanced hop character than in some of the other versions, but still very nice and tasty.

Im a huge fan of this experiment with different single hops creating the whole hopping-scale of a beer. The chance to compare, to judge and to identify your own favorite - and hence be a better beer shopper in the future is great. I had this one first on draught but this rating is based on the bottled version. The pour is deep amber golden with an slightly orange head. The nose is nice and mild with a fresh hoppyness - there are som hay and som apricot ans citrusnotes. The taste is surprisingly bitter and fresh at the same time - its some of both. The bitterness stays with you and is picking your tounge all the way to the finishline. The palate is a little creamy or buttery. This one is easy drinkable with a lovely freshness. Like it

Pours light hazy amber with medium off-white head. The aroma is medium hoppy with tones of citrus, herbs and flowers up front but there is also some wood and earth. Malt brings caramel and cookies. The flavour is light sweet and medium to heavily bitter with tones of herbs, flowers, some citrus, wood, earth, dry caramel and crackers. The mouthfeel is clean and medium carbonated. Wood and herbal finish. Light to medium bodied.
