Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Alieniloquium on 07-23-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This double IPA is a collaborative beer brewed by Shaun E. Hill of Hill Farmstead Brewery with Jacob Storm and Morten Lundsbak of Amager Bryghus (Denmark) at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend, VT.

The name is inspired by one of Danish writer Hans Christian Anderson's travelogues; the beer represents a vivid but fleeting memory of a productive and wonderful visit by our Danish friends to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Served in a ridiculously small half pint glass.

Appearance - Clear orange. Nice fluffy head. A bit of lacing and nice surface foam.

Smell - Some orange, skips the grapefruit, and goes right to pine. A touch musty and some malt sweetness.

Taste - Sweet malt right up front, but orange hops take hold. Very juicy. Pine hops take over throughout as the sugars drop off. Moderate bitterness and some grass. The finish reveals a bit of a toasty malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Has the sweetness of a DIPA without just a bit less body.

Overall - Interesting hop profile. Very nice. Expensive at the Pig though... I suppose that's not the beer's fault. (687 characters)

Served in a tulip glass from a fresh growler. Color is a light golden yellow; thick frothy head with persistent lacing that hangs on forever. Nose is a little fruity, not overpowering. Taste is fantastic; definitely hoppy without any sense of being overly bitter or astringent; it's got a bit of a citrusy component that makes it very pleasant and refreshing to sip on. Fairly light mouthfeel; none of the clingy, overly oily sense of some DIPA's.
My only regret is that I didn't bring a few more growlers of this one home with me; my favorite so far of all the brews I've enjoyed from this brewer. (598 characters)
