Pours pale amber with a small head.
Nose shows pine, lemon custard and caramel. Pretty potent.
Very similar flavours. Very aggressive with a sharp, biting bitterness. More pine and soft sorachi ace notes. Some very faint clean malt but the bitterness rules this one.
Very oily mouthfeel. Too oily.

Bottle: Poured a deep beige color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops with nice fruity notes and limited bitterness is very enjoyable. Taste is also a mix between some dry pale malt notes with some citrusy and grapefruit forward hops with some limited bitterness. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very enjoyable beer with nice hops presence and limited bitterness.

Golden honey, opaque and quite light for an IPA. Sudsy white head falls relatively fast with minimal lacing and a half-centimetre raised ring. Looks more like a sour than an IPA.

Very sweaty, oniony, vinegary hops initially. Odd chalky, lemon rindy and doughy yeast characteristics with some booze behind it. Hardly appetising.

More bizarre minty, chalky, lemon sherbet action joined by a strong and clean leafy, eucalyptus bitterness. The lack of fruit or pine character is very unorthodox to this palate at least, but it all starts to grow on me.

Medium bodied, with a dry, metallic, bitter finish

This one is out of the box. Intrigues with its eccentricities for a moment, but overall it's perilously close to a train wreck.

A clear golden brew, a high off-white head leaving good lacing, medium curtains.

Smelling fresh of grass and citric fruits. Grape-fruit and lime.

Starting with some sweet nuances, white bread and toffee, then lemon marmalade, grape-fruit peel and seed. Very bitter.

Medium carbonation, smooth and soft, a medium body and dry finish.

A very hoppy and bitter APA, but not too ...

The colour is yellow (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick white head sinks very slowly, it leaves thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is hoppy with an aggressive bitterness. Green berries, flowers, lemons, grapefruits and grains. It is dry with some bread and hints of alcohol.

The taste is dry and bitter. It is completely hop-centric. Grapefruits, orange peels, green bananas, unripe berries and a touch of beef-stock. The body is quite light. The aftertaste is dry and bitter, too. Green flavours, balancing clean sweetness. A touch of cream in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, lits of small fresh short lived bubbles.

A surprisingly dry and pale AIPA. Fresh and clean, but not the most complex one I have had.

22oz bomber picked up at the brewery on a trip to Denmark. Poured into an Amager snifter...

A: Drink by date 11-14 (Batch #532); pours a hazy tangerine with a creamy white, one-finger head; retention dies down to a thin haze that leaves a few specks of lace.

S: Piney hop resin; sweet; quite a big aroma.

T: Piney, pineapple, grapefruit rind hop bitterness followed by a short flash of malt sweetness; and, a bit of grainy / wheaty character in the finish... Very nice, with the exception of the additional wheat flavor on the end.

M: Medium-light feel and moderate to high carbonation... makes for easy drinking.

O: A nice west coast IPA from DK! Great aroma, nice taste and refreshing mouthfeel at 7.2%.

Pale golden colour, a little more than one finger of white head, good lace. Smell is full of juicy, fruity hops, tons of citrus fruit in here, orange and tangerine can be picked out from across the room, grapefruit a bit of earthiness and some fairly restrained malt. Taste is dry and hoppy, citrus with more of the orange/tangerine from the nose, grapefruit and pineapple, light astringency, light sweetness mid palate, quite bitter throughout with a dry orangey aftertaste. Drying light carbonation, oily and medium bodied. Really solid stuff, not sold on this being an IPA though as it is more in line with being a beefier APA but nice and citrusy and hard to find fault with.

Cloudy, cloudy golden color with a creamy, off white head. Decent head retention and Very nice lacing.

Really interesting sweet malt aroma. Lots of melanoidin and caramel and very similar to Rogue beers. Some grapefruit notes.

Sharp bitterness and lots of grapefruit here. Disappointingly malty with the same sweet, stickiness from the aroma. Bitterness is very high but the actual hop flavor could be stronger.

Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Decent.

An interesting beer. Too malty for my tastes and the hop flavor is muted but it is certainly still drinkable.
