Danish: Brygget på pale ale-, crystal- og hvedemalt. Bitterhumlen er den krydret Magnum, smagshumlen er den vel-balancererede Horizon, og som aromahumle er der brugt den New Zeelandske Nelson Sauvin og en smule Simcoe for at give lidt mere kompleksitet. Brygget er gæret med WLP 001 - California Ale.

yespr (40837) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2009
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small slight off white head. Dense floral and slight fruity hops aroma of simcoe and amarillo. Grapefruity, mild caramel malt base. Crisp and refreshing not overly on the hops but surely solid in grapefruit aromatic flavour and bitterness. Lasting fruity and dry bitter finish. Good balanced and hoppy brew. Real crisp and for the early spring sun.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2009
Bottled. Amber colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is spices, yeast, a bit tomatosaucelike as well as some sweet malts and mild wooden notes. Flavour is very floral hoppy along with grass and mild fruityness. Mild spices as well. Rather different interpretation of APA, but still quite nice and very drinkable.

Rasmus40 (17806) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Clear orange with a white head. Aroma is malty and moderate hoppy - grapefruit and orange. Flavor is medium sweet and rather bitter. Dry finish with a sharp bitterness. Much better than the original Gækkebryg. Why on earth didn’t they chage the name when they changed the recipe? 110311

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Angenehm gehopfter Antrunk mit natürlichen und puren Hopfennoten. Etwas süßlich, kurz darauf durch den Hopfen aber deutlich bitter. Der Hopfen baut eher auf als ab, kein anderes Arome wagt sich in – abgesehen von der mitziehenden Bitterkeit – an den Hopfen heran. Grasig-frisch und leicht erdig ist das Bier im hinteren Teil, in dem der Hopfen dann langsam abnimmt. Die feine Bitterkeit baut langsamer ab und ist so zuletzt im Abgang knackig erkennbar. Süffiges und lecker hopfiges Bier! 10/11/11/11/7/11

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle. A hazy beer with some small floaties and a minimal off-white head. Lovely citrusy, resiny hops with lots of peaches, and a nice malty base. The flavor has some malty sweetness, but the hops are doing most of the job. Resin, citrus, peaches and a nice, suitable bitterness. Medium body. Lovely bitter and lemony finish. For a 5% beer, this one’s quite lovely, but I would like the flavor as pronounced as the aroma. 090720
