LazyPyro (1382) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
0.5L bottle, 1.5 years old but still within BB. Pours hazy amber with an enormous, smooth off-white head, retains it well. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, malty. Taste has a good balance between hops and malts, fruity, citrus, pine, sweet caramel, but quite a bitter finish. Palate is sublime, medium bodied and one of the most velvety smooth IPAs I've ever had, carbonation is medium-heavy but settles down nicely, a little sticky. Excellent.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Dejlig duft af humle og en smule malt. I munden er den bitter og frisk og har en smule maltsødme. Fin, balanceret IPA.

Drought @ Fox & Hounds, Sønderborg. Pours hazy straw with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and citrus, with notes of malt and fruit. Sweetish flavour of malt and fruit, with bitter notes of hops and citrus and notes of yeast. Malty and estery aftertasfte with a bitter touch. Crispy, refreshing mouthfeel. Well-balanced and very enjoyable. Yummy!

Hazed deep golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an average carbonation level. A bit unbalanced sweetness. Fruity(dried fruit), grassy, grapefruit hoppy and some pine in the flavor.

Humlehuet (16) - Også Hønefoss, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2017
Denne kan man alltid falle tilbake på uansett utvikling i ølsmak over tid.Det er en god og passe kraftig IPA og en ordentlig koseøl uansett årstid. Passe fylde og humlebitterhet.

4.1
PapaVillum (956) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2017
India Pale Ale med lille offwhite skumkrone på 1-2 cm. Svinder til kant og overflade. Rolig i glasset og let diset. Aromaen er en smule diskret med noter af frugt. Der anes noget appelsin og lidt græs. Fuld power på smagen til gengæld. Smagen er maltpræget med frugtnoter af appelsin, citrus og grapefrugt. Bitterheden ligger som et sikkerhedsnet under frugten, så trapez-akrobaterne ikke stikker for meget af. Smagsopsummering: let syrlig, middel sødme, middel til tung bitterhed. Lækker blød mundfølelse qua et let nedjusteret karboneringsindhold. Fyldig krop og en næsten cremet konsistens. Afslutningen er bitter og kort. Overall: Fyldig IPA med krop, frugt, og masser af let-drikkelighed. 35 cl på fad, 7.5 % ABV, nydt på Frederiksberg Ølbar på Falkonér Allé på Frederiksberg. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
