UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 Bottle from half time with no freshness info. Pours a golden amber into my glass capped by a crater rock head with excellent retention, slight haze. Flowery nose with hint of cracker. Nice bitterness backed by pale malt.

Caramel, honey like but not sweet. Much like salted caramel, this is a genre challenger. Actually it’s like zombie land. Yep, settled. That’s my metaphor. It’s zombieland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LazyPyro (1482) - 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.

DavidSvinth (223) - DENMARK - SEP 15, 2017
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.

Hazy amber colour with an off white head. Massive delicious grape nose. Fruity and hoppy with a solid sweet malty background.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Halden, Norway]

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.
