Noe grumsete utseende. God søtlig lukt. God på smak og gir en god ettersmak. Ikke noe særlig munnfølelse. Totalt sett et godt øl som kan prøves om man er glad i ipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
660ml bottle pours a copper color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and lighter fruits with some grapefruit hops. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness and a hint of alcohol with a grainy finish. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Overall, this is like a hoppy barley wine and I really enjoyed sampling this one.

Draught @ O’Hara’s Freehouse. Rated on 29.01.2010
Aroma is somewhat sweet with hops, exotic fruits and caramel. Flavour is sweet with American hops, exotic fruits, caramel, some resiny malt and biscuits. Quite American – and too sweet for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangy hazy appearance with decent full head which recedes over time leavingfluffy rings around the glass. Pleasing spicy citric orange flavour. Good interplay between the malt and hop with a pleasing rubbery bitterness at the end. Approaching the heavy side this still strikes me an intereesting and very English take on the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle kindly shared by Sigmund. Pours a hazy opper body with a big bubbled tan colored film. Tropical salty fruits, sprucy pollen and meaty notes on the nose. Herbal, salty, malty and bitter flavors. Full bodied. Brothy texture and a dry tomgue.

Shared bottle at Sigmunds place. Pours dark brown/ruby, slightly hazed with a small fast diminishing head. Strong + aroma of hops, fruity and piny, moderate sweet marmelade, malts,. Taste is initially sweet malty, before the hops kicks in, dark dried fruits, moderate bitter resiny end, a kick in the front teeth this one.

Shared 660 ml bottle conditioned, from Voldby Købmandsgård. ABV is 9.5%.
Pours pinkish-red with a low and short-lived white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruits, hints of spruce. Massively hoppy flavour throughout, fruity notes, spruce and pine. Quite a bit of residual sweetness. Bitter of course, but not as extreme as some American double IPAs.
