Fin grumlig. Doftar typiskt single hop Dipa . Jävligt fint lagom söt å lagom kolsyrad Fylligt krämig å perfekt perfekt beska. Lite enformig smak kanske å väl mycket grape för att få topp betyg .,Bra Dipa

Backlog rating. Keg at the King’s Arms tap takeover. It pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity with light grassy hops, pine needles, grapefruit skin and burnt sugar. Taste is quite juicy and sweet upfront, with more grassy pine hops to follow. Finishes bitter and dry. Overall, good

Pours a nice golden color with a foamy head. Has nice citrus taste which compliments the fresh strong hop taste. A very nice west coast style IPA. Purchased it in a growler at Holiday beverage. My biggest complaint is they ran out of it.

Smells of berries... very thin pallet just like the other Chinook hop variant. Very experiment from Mikkeller.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2012
(Draught) Pours hazy deep amber red. The aroma is full of green hops with notes of flowers, pine, black currant, tropical fruits and tangerines. The malt brings tones of toast and light caramel. Tiny oxidized with hints of wet dog. The flavour is light to medium sweet and near heavily bitter. Heavily hoppy and medium malty with tones of pine, resin, flowers, grapefruit, citrus peel, toast and caramel. The mouthfeel is clean and juicy with a “dry” finish. Medium to full bodied.

7/10 i mörkhet. Fruktig, milt humlig i doften. Hårt besk och lite oljig, lite aprikos i smaken. Besk söt eftersmak.

330ml bottle. Thick fluffy head of sandy coloured foam. Solid amber and honey coloured base. Caramel and butterscotch aroma that is very fragrant and inviting. Full flavour with mild bitterness and lingering on the palate. Very nice.

Enid (19) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle. One of my absolute favorites but from this bottle unfortunately not as fresh as I´ve had it before. Color is amber with a light yellow head. Aromas of gooseberry, lemon and pine. Taste of lemon,and herbs. Very fresh with a long lasting bitterness and good carbonation, medium body.

Sweet basil nose, some mint, a lot of ginger. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Fresh herbs and citrus. Nice.

#100- Pours a dark caramel color with a small, lingering white head. Smell is pine with lemon citrus notes. Spice of a quad with the bitterness of a good ipa and hints of pine aftertaste. Bitterness lasts long after the last sip. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, and extremely sticky. A more spice and a little sweeter than I’m used to in an IPA.
