Danish: Under den ferskenfarvede skumkrone gemmer der sig en kobberfarvet øl med stor bitterhed. Her er det humlen der dominerer, med smag af citrusskal, gran og blomster. For at afbalancere humlesmagen og bitterheden er der brugt store mængder specialmalte der giver en fyldig og kompleks øl. En India Pale Ale til humleelskeren. Fort Dansbo er en fæstning i det sydlige Indien i den gamle danske koloni Trankebar.

Lightly toasted caramel flavor. Some residual sweetness. Careful Danish IPA, tastes like a hoppy brown ale.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 29, 2014
Personal favorite of mine from Aalborg. Named for a fortress in Trankebar, India, a town once ruled by the kingdom of Denmark - Norway it has a good and strong hop flavor mixed into a lovely caramel citrus... "swirl".

lusikka (6439) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is rather heavy on biscuity malts, toffee and some grass. Flavour of biscuity malts, grassy hops, caramel, some metallic notes, burnt bread, grapefruit and nettles. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a grassy, herbal, heavy malty finish. Too malty for an IPA. Actually the maltiness here is pretty much what you have in your average double IPA. This just doesn’t have the alcohol nor the amount of hops DIPA’s should have

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
350ml from tap at Henrik Øl og Vinstove. Bubbly, off-white head. Cloudy, ruby coloured body. Spotty lacing to the glass. Smell of herbal hops and mid-sweet malts. Bread-like malts, grassy hops and apricot in the flavour character. Dry, malt bitter ending. Well bodied. Not a mainstream ipa, but tastes fine (Bergen, 18.09.2012).

Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap @ Henrik. This is a mild cloudy raw-amber body with a heavy lacing bubbly beige head. On the aroma it’s quite malty, concentrated caramel-sweet, ripe almost rotten white fruits, some near vinious touches also. Same in the flavor. Mild vinious and oxidized flavor. A bit malt-sweet, with hints of cocoa powder and some wet grass. I found this quite tasty and mild. 02.08.2012
