3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. Warm golden and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruits and citrus. The flavour is slightly sweet, has notes of caramel and piny citrus and it’s quite harmonic and rather dry - but I would have preferred a different chose of hops, more clean and distinct. 2156

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very nice IPA, doesn’t wallop you over the head with hops, but you definitely know they’re there. Good character, bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is hops n spice, maybe a hint of malt. Perhaps also a hint of pine. Beautiful ruby/orange color, but I couldn’t get a head. There’s a bit of malt in here, but the hops keep it well in bounds. I find orange at the onset, and the body is firm. Great mouthfeel. It went really well with Korma and masala, balancing the heat of the spices nicely. So how good is it that an IPA works with Indian cuisine? Very. Great stuff. The draft I had was months ago, but I think the bottle stands up well to draft quallity.
