4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Barley Wine, Copenhagen. Poured a hazy orange colour with a generous off white head. Piney resin sodden hop agogo in the nose with the addition of tropical fruit and sweet malts. The flavour followed suit and was bloody tasty with it. Glorious fruity notes allowed this to holler ’drink me now !’ loudly from the glass. ABV supremely well masked. An all round top notch DIPA guvnor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Mikkeller bar during Humlehelvede last december. This is why I drink beer! Never heard of To Øl before that night, but the bartender gives me one while we’re talking beers, and I’m in love. with the beer, not the bartender. Color is goldern, clear, with a large white head. Fruity aroma with plenty of citrus, flowers, herbs. taste of many fruits (admittedly I was too drunk to single out which), with caramel. The beer is 10,5% but you’d never guess from the taste. beatufully hidden alcohol. This is just awesome, and I hope to get a chance to drink it again!

330 ml bottle. Dim orange body with a thin off-white head. Strong fruity aroma with grapefruit, pine and some caramel. Flavor has a well balanced malt base with high bitterness and lots of citric fruits. Medium body. Nice and quite straightforward double IPA with well-hidden alcohol. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light apricot brown with smallish beige coloured head. Fairly standard IPA hope aromas of light stonefruit and citrus with some light biscuity malt in support. Flavours show fruity aprocit sweetness upfront with lingering bitter finish. Relatively clean finish without the usual resiny after taste. Not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy, amber beer with a small, beige head. Punch in the face American hoppyness in the aroma, Pine cones, resins and citrus peel. The malts are present, but at appropriate levels. Lovely bitterness in the mouth, with the hoppy and malty flavors expected. Not too malty and sweet. Full body, pleasant carbonation and with a little warmth. Lasting bitter finish with citrus and pine cones. A nice one indeed, but not world class. Would like to drink more of it. 110301

Hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, sweet fruity and very hoppy - grapefruit and peach. Flavor is rather sweet and very bitter. Very dry and bitter finish. A bit rough on the edges, but very good overall. I had this on tap at Fairbar at the sneak preview. 141010

11-FEB-2011, bottle @home, with Ulkløbben, from "Ølbutikken".
Right after First Frontier IPA:-)
Orange with white head.
Extremely bitter and piney. Some malty fruits - oranges and lemon.
Only slightly sweet, bitterness so extreme it dries out the mouth.
Fantastic brew, not alcoholic, just lovely.
