Holmen1 (4892) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Flaske (batch 0154) fra Holmens importkoffert, delt med Ovesen 17.5.: lett uklar kobber med film/gardinskum. Intens humlearoma med massevis av citrus, furunål, tropiske frukter og malt. Smaken følger opp - dette er en meget kompetent american ipa, og du trenger slett ikke ha hatt en tøff dag på jobben for å nyte denne i små slurker. Bitterhet som minner om engelsk marmelade i den lange avslutningen, og i de siste slurkene var det gress som domminerte .
