Hazy orange. One finger foam. Intense resin green grass aromas. Very bitter spicy peppery taste. Long juniper mouthfell. Another intense brew from the Danish brewbrothers. Love it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle form beergium. Nose is pretty normal IPA nose, citrus, apricot. Palate also starts like a normal IPA, but blossoms into a equal parts sour fruity bitter mixture. Quite good, but Garden of Even is better.

Opaque dark amber beer, white head. Aroma of hop and citrus. Bittersweet fruit hit that I can’t place, I assume this is seabuckthorn, with some light hop. Mellows out considerably into a dry finish almost like raw grapefruit. The first taste came as a bit of a surprise but it’s crisp and tasty.

Näyttää sahdilta: vaalea, läpinäkymätön. Tuoksu raikas, hedelmäinen. Maku vähän greippinen, miedosti humaloitu.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2016 Bottle. Thanks Euro Summer SecretSanta. Murky amber with a white head. Funky, strawberry, a little yogurt, old socks aroma. very sour, perhaps infected? No hops, no juniper. Would?ve been fine in another category or context, but something sure feels off here. BBD 17.5.18.

Wow, I want more Scandinavian IPA’s like this. It has the standard hazy orange color of a regular IPA. Aroma is like a dank stew of juniper, spruce, pine, herbs, and tropical fruit all thrown together. It tastes like grapefruit, papaya, guava, mango, peach, apricot, and grass. This beer is bright, spicy, juicy, and tangy. To Øl has some fun beers, but this was just plain awesome.

A- Juicy Fruit gum, guava, mango, tropical fruits.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Juicy, citrus, gummy bears.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, juicy finish.
O- Vaugely reminded me of To Ol’s Sur Sour stuff. Very juicy and refreshing. Don’t know anything about juniper berries and buckthorn but apparently they make a delicious beer. I could drink a ton of this. Not sure why it gets to be a fruit beer instead of an IPA on here, but regardless it’s great.
