COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Special;
What started out as a little bit of fun quickly became the favourite of many die hard ale fans and has become permanent. Probably best described stylistically as a Californian IPA, this beer has all the rich malt and fruit flavours of a Barley Wine combined with the hoppy crispness of a Pale Ale. And as best said by one of its biggest fans, "Hoppiness = Happiness."

660ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Ales By Mail. Aroma reminds me about forest after rain, quite nice look, refreshing taste after 5 days antibiotics cure :-) Pretty easy IPA. This bottle size is the best!

DSG (11144) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 28, 2016
[5/16/16] Draught at Taphouse in Copenhagen. Golden. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops, citric, with a bit of graininess. Flavor has a bit of graininess, and nice bitter fruity hops. Light to medium-bodied. Good.

Bawelt (422) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 26, 2016
Bonne IPA. Nez assez floral, mangue, ananas. Un fond assez herbal et frais. Bouche très équilibrée : beaucoup plus porté sur les agrumes, assez rond avec l’attaque fruitée, relativement floral, finale peu amère mais plutôt sèche.

MiP (15039) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2016
Can, 6.5% at KØ16. Good creamy hop aroma. Cloudy golden colour. Small creamy white head. The flavour is sweet and nicely hoppy. Good creamy and isotonic mouthfeel. Grassy, fruity and citric hoppiness.

popiela (432) - Poznañ, POLAND - MAY 22, 2016
0,33 puszka, na szybko. Przyjemny aromat chmielowy, ale nie jaki? zniewalaj?cy. W smaku wytrawnie, chmielowo, goryczka umiarkowana.

MrOrla (1980) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2016
Can. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, lots of citrus, light resin, light malts, light wet socks. Taste is rather bitter with a light sweet touch. Dry and bitter finish. Quite clean. Pretty old school but good.

Aarslew (9) - - MAY 18, 2016 does not count
Can from Flask. Pours a cloudy darkish orange with a big white head. Aroma of hops, pine, orange. Taste is slightly bitter, somewhat dry and not too sweet. It’s light-medium bodied and has a low carbornation.

Vestergaard (1439) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
Can thanks to Aarslew! Pours a cloudy golden orange with a big bubbly, white-ish head. Aroma has grassy hops, light pine, light toasted caramel malts, sweet mango/overripe orange notes. Taste has a light sweetness, medium bitterness, and is overall pretty dry. Texture, though, is rather oily, and the beer has a somewhat low carbonation.

at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Can. Pours out pale amber with a thin white head. Nose is candied orange - it smells vibrant and glorious. Straightaway you get dry tannic bitterness and an unwelcome wheat tang. There is a boozy maltiness underneath and a marmalade finish. Feels a bit thin and watery but at the same time the alcohol is too evident. This is meant to be a hop party but everything here is cranked up to ten and you are left with a messy and unsatisfying brew. This Brewer needs to start making beer that tastes like it smells.

CzechTex (112) - - APR 23, 2016
On tap. Minor lacing, foam disappeared quickly. Tart, hoppy as the name implies. High quality is evident, but I’m not sure this is a 98. Lower alcohol content might let the flavor breathe a bit...
