2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Yellow-orange gold, lacy rings. Hops, but also a faint vomity smell (sorry), cheesy hops. Rather harsh hops, with resiny character. Harsh MF and light finish, not much body. Well, OK, I guess, certainly not my favourite.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Not much of an IPA by my opinion has a serious lack of bitterness. Dark golden with white head. Aroma with floral notes. Taste malty and very little bitterness.

50cl btl. best bf 2010-03-28
nice aroma, a little bit too sour, and a little bit too yeasty for my taste for an ipa - but better than macro beers. boring/wrong for an ipa
clear gold colored with small white head. looks good. 3/5
flavor: hints of a good beer, but drowned in alc. and weird hopping. reminds me of tuborg guld, more than an india pale ale. Aftertaste is great though, moving through various kinds of
bitterness and sweetness at the same time. actually, if they had called the beer something else, i’d say it was great. But IPA creates expectations. Rating is as if i had blindtested it.
general comments - no need to try this one, go for herslev gorms bryg, any mikkeler or ølfabrikken ipa, or check ratebeer - much better ipa’s out there.

Bottle 0.5 l. Bought Irma Hilleroed. Golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma filled with hops, a bit fruity and yeast. Bittersweet taste. It’s not possible to differentiate the five different hops which should be part of the the brew, but hops are there allright. Low carbonation.
