Copper colour. Low carbonation – nice one. Resiny, woody c-hops in the aroma with crystal malts and a hint of florals. Well-balanced body shows toasty notes and floral/citric hoppiness. Fairly bitter example.

you can’t keep fresh kegs when you have 200 taps
a old can from a very cold fridge does not hold up any better than an old keg from a place that does not rotate kegs very often, but still quite tasty when stale
Aroma: 9/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 16/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph. Pours a wonderful clear red-orange with a small creamy yellow-ish head. Aroma is heavily fruity hoppy - apples, peaches, grapefruit. Low carbonation. Flavour is very hoppy with some biscuit and caramel. Quite bitter, but there is a fruity sweetness behind it. Very nice - I could have liked a little more sparkle in the carbonation.

Amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Big hoppy aroma, mostly pine, with some peach, orange, grass, and furthermore some toffee, malt and bread. Sweet and malty with enough bitterness and hop flavour to embarras most IPAs. Lasting grapefruit and pine aftertaste. Big and creamy mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Wine Cellar. Resiny aromas. Clear amber color with a very impressive tan/beige head. Full bodied with very creamy carbonation. Flavor is more citrus grapefruit over evergreen, with a backdrop of roasted caramel. Still, this is all about the hop. It’s not balanced. It’s an IPA in disguise. Maybe an IIPA in disguise, based on the bitterness. Evergreen seems to return in the finish. Everyone should have one of these once in awhile just to get back to roots. Whoo. It’s not in the same class as the best, complex ales, but it is a winner in the APA class.
