4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
33cl bottle from my good friend Martin for being his Best Man. Hazy dark brown colour with lasting beige rocky head. Coffee and big hoppy aroma. Wow that is a really big hoppy DIPA. With a hint of coffee. That is a hell of a DIPA. It’s really good. Not much heat on end, just a bit of burn. It’s smooth as hell. Wow this is a really good beer.

Bottle. Split with Pat on the way down the shore. Pours cloudy dark orange. Aromas of espresso, weasel, peach, roasty grains. Taste is smoked, rye, wood, grains, honey, coffee, pine. A very interesting ipa from the Danish brewer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap at Churchkey about two weeks ago. Poured a cloudy dark yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was a touch grassy, with some bitter roasted coffee notes. Very intriguing aromas. Flavor was light citrus, with a touch of earthy hops and a bitter espresso flavor. This was pretty darn enjoyable, especially since I assumed it would be a disaster of a gimmick.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A cloudy, orange beer with a weak, big bubbled, blond head. Aroma is weird mix of fruits, coffee and some sewer. Taste is fruitfull and coffee, herbs, some pine needle. Medium bodied, soda like carbonation. Very weird beer, sewer in the aroma is not very pleasant, also balance is lost. Well, at least unique beer.

Draft. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with backing coffee. Medium bodied. OK bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine lingers with light caramel and coffee. Coffee gets stronger the more you drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky copper color with a large, quickly falling head. Aroma of coffee and vegetal hop matter. Very dank and bitter pine flavor. Hints of coffee. A little toasty. The hop blend is not my bag at all.

Pours an unclear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, coffee and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is round and soft. Overall a good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml (Drink Shop, BB 02/2014)
Hazy deep orange color, small white head, some lace. Strong sticky mix of coffee and hayish hops and then rubber. Medium bodied. Sticky citrusy hoppyness, hay, some sweet maltyness - decent drinkability for this ABV - coffee, coffee beans. Mix gives hints of licorice in the finish. Warming aftertaste. Quite bitter beer. Coffee doesn’t work here so well than in Koppi beers.
