Danish: En rød IPA som nok skal få farve i dit blege ansigt og putte ordet tilbage i din magt. Præget af fyrrenåle, grape- og tropefrugter. 60 bitterenheder via kogning; alt derudover befinder sig i en gråzone - en grøn gråzone. Overgæret.

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Shared @ Cardinal. Clear golden with a thick white head. Aromas of floral hops and light fruits. Flavors of floral hops, some faint citrus and maybe peach. Nice bitterness. Not so much "in your face" as I expected, but still a good IPA.

ClubGonzo (4752) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a deep, slightly hazy nut brown body with a medium off-white head. Nose is nougat-like caramel tones, mild pine and melon. Nice, but not in my pale face exactly. Taste is nutty caramel and bitter grassy tones, earth and herbal notes, hints of medicinal bitterness in the finish. OK, but a bit harsh. Smooth body, medium carbonation. Fair enough, but not great by any means.

ej (997) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2013
deep golden, close to amber. little to no head, but a swirl produces a nice, light-tan film of foam. mellow aroma with malty caramel and light pine. taste is a bit more aggressive, with alot more bitterness than was evident from the aroma. medium body and carbonation.

Orange-brun-röd, oklar. Litet skum som är lätt färgat. Doft: Bränt socker, jäst, apelsin skal. Svårt att känna mer, är lite täppt och på pub. Smak: Plommon, frukt kärnor, grape, trä, rostade toner. Bra beska.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
In short: Rich sweet caramel and an overload of resinous piney hops. For lovers of bittering hops.
How: Tap at Black & Brown, Stockholm.
The look: Murky burnt-orange body topped by a small persistent beige head.
In long: Nose is really in your face hoppy with a burst of pure hop resin with some ripe fruits. Taste has a heavy caramelized body, lots and lots of sugary caramel with also a crunchy residual sugars sensation. To balance that big sweet nourishing body they’ve packed this one with an insane amount of resinous piney hops. Body is very thick and yeasty with an active carbonation. Nothing clean, bright or refreshing in this beer, this is a big fat sticky hoppy beer. I liked this beer because I love bitter hoppy beers, but I honestly can’t recommend this beer, this is really not an achievement in the art of craft brewing. Worthy of its name. With a name like "In Your Face IPA" Svaneke are probably trying to attract a younger crowd who wants to drink beers that make them look cool, I was once like that, and now years later I’m still drinking more than ever probably because I’m addicted to looking cool.

NordicV (1390) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2012
Kopparfärgad dimmig öl med vitt skum. Doft av mörkt bröd, lätt fruktighet och nötighet. Kavringen återkommer i smaken men efterhand dyker det alltmer upp en trevlig beska citrus och tallbar i bra kombination.

mzaar (2076) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
På fat. Konjaksfärgad, lätt grumlig öl. Fint skum. Där är väldigt mycket kavring i aromen, men också lingon och en nötighet. Samma kavring dominerar smaken, och det blir aningen för mycket av det. Torkad frukt och körsbär fyller på smaklökarna. Söt öl, lite för söt. Kolsyrig munkänsla.

brnandersen (2595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2012
500 ml. bottle, shared at the summerhouse. Clear, amber colour with a small, off-white head. Fruity and sweet aroma with exotic fruits: Citrus, mangos, passion fruit. Taste is light sweet and fruity. Medium body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finishes bitter and fruity. Nice IPA in american style.

jesperhammer (3544) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2012
10-AUG-2012, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Hazy red with lasting, lacing, high tan head. Grass, grape fruit, pine, and tropical fruits. Taste the same with also malty bready, caramelly, fruity notes. Bordering an American red ale. Surprisingly good IPA from Svaneke. Really fresh and well-made IPA from a brewery that often disappoints. .
