3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Dark amber, almost brown color. A good inch of dirty white head. Lots of bubbles. Not quite transparent.
Smell: Very fragrant. Sharp citrus and softer floral smells.
Moderate hop bitterness. The different flavors of the hops roll over my tongue in waves. The malt and hops battle it out at first with some nice sweetness followed by the bitterness... and then more hops. It is quite nice.
Going towards a softer feeling. Not as carbonated as all the bubbles suggested; moderate carbonation and body.
Very drinkable. I would have to concentrate but I think I can taste each of the five different hops as they flow across my tongue. Great use of the hops without going into the "hop bomb" mode.

draught@Erzbierschof’s bar - quite clear red-orange beer with a solid quite chaotic pale beige foam; a fair hoppiness showing notes of herbs with red fruits in the background; a solid malt backbone and gently sticky; a light juicy sweetness soon overwhelmed by a robust herbal bitterness; very long herbal and gently fruity hoppy finish - pretty original

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. This is a cloudy almost glowing amber beer with a nice heavy lacing off-white head. It has a sweetish aroma with lots of tropical fruits, peach and hops. Nice enough. The mouthfeel is oily and it has a average carbonation level. Grassy and mild-hedge hoppy flavors here. It’s also on the border to sticky without being to sweet. Really grassy and almost pungent-bitter when it got some temperature. 06.01.2012

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours light hazy red-amber with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has red apples, Belgian sugar, caramel, peach, kiwi and pineapple. High carbonation, dry but a bit hin mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly bitter, piney, some apple, some resin. A bit sharp overall, though it has pleasantly balanced bitter resiny finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Opaque amber with a dense and lacing off-white head. Dusty, chalky aroma. Surprisingly light in body, extremely dry and again this strange note of dusty chalk. Bitter indeed but not in any aromatic way. Mediocre. 060112

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of off-white head that settles to some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and cereal grains with citrus and spicy hops. Taste is light caramel sweetness with some citrusy hop bitterness and a bit of peppery finish. An enjoyable easy to drink IPA which would be ok to drink all night long.
