COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Sleipner er brygget med 5 nøje udvalgte kraftige amerikanske humlesorter og er til dem som ikke kan få humle nok En humlebombe af bitterhed og aroma. Gæret ved en lidt lavere temperatur som lader gæren træde i baggrunden og fremme de forskellige humlesorters kompleksitet og aroma. Bør nydes ved 10-12°C. Sleipner er Odins 8 benede hingst. Den kan løbe stærkt som vinden og bevæger sig ligeså godt i luften som på jorden. Sleipners mor er Loke, der omskabte sig til en hoppe for at lokke jættehingsten Svadilfare væk fra sit arbejde med at bygge muren omkring Asgård.

tfredvik (1182) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2014
Cloudy, medium amber body with an off-white, long-lived head, good lacing. Strong hoppy aroma of overripe tropical fruits, especially mango, but also pineapple and orange further behind. Sweet caramel is also evident, and there are spices in the back. Strong flavour of tropical fruits with grapefruit and pine in the long finish. Quite a lot of caramel and a bit too sweet toffee (bordering on butterscotch) in the back. It’s quite sweet, but also magnificently bitter. Pleasant mouthfeel, full-bodied, smooth and oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA, although it would have been even better with less toffee.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Foffern (1276) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy red-orange colour with a big, compact, beige head. Aroma of pine, fruity hops, grapefruit, butterscotch, diacetyl and mowned grass. The flavour has lots of grassy hops, pine, grapefruit and leather. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a heavy bitterness. A solid DIPA, but too bad with the diacetyl, and the taste feels a little unbalanced with all the hops. Every hophead would love this though.

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle, 9.4%. Good fruity and salty hop aroma, seems to have a bit of smoke. Cloudy red orange colour. Small white head. The flavour is sweet and bitter. Has a good orangey hop flavour and a little more smoke. The smoke seems unintended, but it tastes all right.

Bamsen78 (3315) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with some estery notes and hoppy touches. Sweetish, fruity and malty taste, complemented by bitter, hoppy notes, enhanced by citric touches. Lingering bitter and slightly sweetish afteraste. Oily texture. Well-hidden alcohol considering the ABV. Decent.

Desverger (2272) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Tap@Lord Nelson, Copenhagen - very hazy amber coloured pour with medium off-white head. Tropical fruity and malty aroma and taste, some caramel, juicy grapefruit, pine needles, full mouthfeel, powerful hoppy bitter finish. Lovely.

ClubGonzo (4175) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Nose is rose water, peaches, caramel, pine, herbs and hints of butterscotch and grass. Taste is grass, pine, caramel, lichi, mild pineapple and hints of resin, butterscotch and grapefruit. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Not very impressive; the diacetyl hints and bitter resinous touches in the aftertaste does not compute well.
