UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 Flaske på hytta: klar gylden og med fint hvitt gardinskum. Meget beskjeden humlearoma til en ipa å være. Smaken er også mer som en esb, og som sådan fin, men den seiler ikke til India. En bitter for landkrabber? Flaske under navnet Gullberg Hops District på tilbud til kr.20 på Cafe Viking mai-13: forståelig at denne var på tilbud. Eneste grunn til å bestiller den. Dødskjedelig.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl. bottle. Hazy, darker golden colour with lots of bubbles and a creamy, white head. Aroma with caramel malts, honey, some citrus and floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Medium body, lively carbonated. Finishes lightly bitter with citrus hops and a decent amount of fruitiness. Nothing extraordinary however, good value for money. One of Ørbæks better offerings.

Pours golden with medium white head
Aromas are malty, bready, some sweetness
low carbonated low medium bitter. Typical english style ipa. Poor ending. Too much focus on malts and less on hops. How can it be named Hops District?

Pours hazy orange with thick white head. Aroma us English IPA, almost malty and with low fruit and citrus tones. Taste, again, is more English with a fairly light bitterness balanced by the malt. Somewhat lingering finish, light to medium body. Nah.

50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with no head, some sediment floating around also. Aroma is quite nice with floral hops, fruits, some caramel malts and grass. Flavor of grass, some fruits, malts, nuts, mild bread and goose berries. Bitter palate. Nothing special.

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, mellow honey and some floral notes. Flavour of English hops, honey, hay and some floral notes. Sweet maltiness as well. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, slightly sweet finish. Very British and quite decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with a white head - sweet malt aroma with hops in the back - good malt body to support a nice dry hoppiness that lingers for a long time into the finsih - this was quite nice
