Pours a golden light brown with slight head with little lacing. Nose is minimal but what is there is, is dry hops, first sip is bitter with simcoe and Amarillo qualities, very little malt flavor upfront but you know it is there in the end. Finish is well balanced, mouth feel is solid throughout.

Kaatuu lasiin oranssinkultaisena ja sameana, pinnalle muodostuva ja suht säilyvä vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen ja jättää hieman pitsiä. Yleisvaikutelmaltaan jopa kuiva haju on ennen kaikkea greippitarhan ja havumetsän yhdistelmä. Lopussa tulee hieman karamellista makeutta, mutta muuten tämä on kyllä tyrmäävän greippisen havumetsäinen. Maku on hieman raskaampi ja makeampi. Päällimmäisenä on greippinen happamuus ja hyvin paljon on myös pihkaista havuisuutta ja karamellia mukana. Suuhun jää pyörimään tietynlainen ananasmainen makeus, mutta se saattaa olla myös vain mielleyhtymä. Suutuntuma on kipristelevän hiilihappoinen ja valloittavan katkera, joka nousee hiilihappojen alta ja yltyy saavuttaen huippunsa hetki nielaisun jälkeen. Todella miellyttävä DIPA, jossa maun lievä raskaus laskee pisteitä, mutta suutuntuma on taas todella mielenkiintoinen ja valloittava. Hajussa greippi ja havu on jopa yllättävän vahva, mutta allekirjoittaneelle kyllä toimii.

Tap @ henrik. Hazy amber, heavy caramel and grapefruit. Loads of pine and grassy floralness. Taste is grapefruit and pine. Some bubblegum and a solid bitter aftertaste. Full bodied and medium carb.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2011
Half liter bottle. A cloudy and almost muddy light brown pour with a fine thick fluffy white head. A malty and hoppy nose - you can tell that it is not all fresh but it is still nice. Notes of prunes, oranges over the top and som earhly yeast notes. The mouthfeel is medium with a creamy touch and a finish that are pretty bitter and tightens your throat up. The malty flavours stand out clearly with a fine grassy hoppy bitterness. Long long lasting bitterness.
