4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My favorite one from these series. Nice and hoppy, wood in the smell and taste. It’s a bit to bubbly for me. Feels like large and lots of big CO2 bubbles.

Copenhagen beer festival. Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Soft and slightly citrussy fruit. A little tart elderflower like taste in the head and in the finish.

Pine and piss nose! Mmm! Very low carbonation. Creamy malt with pine and spicy orange. The Acasia seems to have rounded things off but any qualities it imparts are subtle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Der Hopfenantrunk ist voluminös und beinhaltet grasige und fruchtige Nuancen. Anschließend wird die Hopfigkeit stärker und entwickelt weitere Fruchtnoten, Bitterkeit und besonders Herbe stehe hinten an. Dabei sind holzige Komponenten nicht zu leugnen, allerdings sind diese relativ leicht. Im Abgang ist auch hier der Hopfen leider schnell verschwunden und das Bier gleitet trocken bitter aus. 8/11/11/11//11

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had the basic version the other day without rating it - but i think it was a pretty good beer when cold - as it warmed up it got a little too much. Off cause you should drink these bottles after each other but they are rather strong and I hate sharing. A nice sparkling pour with a hazy orange topped with a big-bubbly head that tends to fade down to just a surface layer.The nose is malty with caramels up front. Something sweet and citric and something that reminds me of a yellow honey melon. The hops are kinda hidden behind the malty sweetness. The taste is very different from the basic one. Its more fruity with Wooden notes topped with ashes and a grapy bitterness. The caramel malt is here aswell along with a twist of alcohol. I find the palate and mouthfeel surprisingly thin and the finish gets a bit watery somehow. At first Its rather fat but it changes quickly. Ok without going All the way for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 22oz. Pours a deep, sunset haze orange with a rich, creamy, two finger head. Aroma of raisins, plums, figs, lemon zest, slight dry hops, over ripe apple, and sweet malt. Medium bodied with a smooth, woody, slightly boozy palate. Nice spice on the tongue. Huge, slow finish. Tons of warming through the chest. Awesome oak aged double IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at 420. Huge two fingers of lightly tan head; sticky lacing and good retention on a lightly amber coppery color that’s clear. Aroma is full of grapefruit hoppiness, lots of wood and berries. Highly hoppy taste with berries, fruit, and some pine featured. The woodiness is a defining feature, and really enjoyable. Medium body, dry finish. Really damn good (this is a rate on a fresh sample, and can’t say any of the above for one that I tried that was not as fresh).
