On-tap served in an Amager sniffer at O'glee, Bangkok.

Hazy golden yellow color with some amber tinge, it tops with thick fluffy off-white head that withstands with good retention before slowly subsiding to an eternal foamy crown, plenty of lacing patch and spot left here and there.

Prominent fruity hop aromas of pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, passionfruit, ripe mango, as well as floral, slight earthy, pine and resin. Malt is also there with a note of caramel undertone. Overall, it is juicy, fresh, and well mellow.

Hop bursts through the taste buds with all those qualities stated in the aroma ranging from fruity, earthy, piney, resiny, and persistent bitterness that dwells from the middle until the end as well as lasting in the aftertaste. A trace of malt can also be perceived as it grounded as a foundation of the flavor structure with notes of caramelized sweetness and breadiness as well as smoothness from oat.

Medium body with some bold touch through the palate, smooth with some crisp and moderate carbonation to generate refreshing feel through the palate, pleasantly dry finish.

Very good hop bombardment IPA with its big fruity, piney, and resiny profile, this beer can't go wrong in any case for every hopheads, so catch it if you can.

From cervezalandia. In Teku glass. Playing Blackwell Epiphany. Great even 3 months after BBF, full of tasty citrus hops and not as aggressive as other people says but smooth, maybe thanks to its age?

Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of green grassy notes is pretty pleasant. Taste is also a great mix of green grassy hops with floral citrus notes with a smooth finish which is probably due to the use of oat malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed and I enjoyed the smooth and creamy texture of the oat malt.

When pouring the beer brings up a wonderful white fine foam crown. Small fine bubbles that hang around for a while. The beer is unclear Yellow color and you see small bubbles dancing in the glass. The fragrance is good, even and have some sweet notes, a little exotic. Fruity notes of lemon Hops, Grapefruit, Orange, Passion fruit. There are some herbs, a little pine and white bread. Good balanced aromas. At first taste so it is a little sweet, hops tones comes along with bitterness. It has fruity notes of lemon, red orange, grapefruit, passion fruit. The aftertaste is bitter significantly and this will more flavors out of spices, apricot and a little peppery. Long aftertaste of grapefruit and bitterness.

A small head soon dissipates leaving a small and lacy white cap atop an enticing light amber haze. The aroma smacks of freshness; there are so many citrusy notes that make the mouth water. The is gorgeous with initial and welcome sweet hints quickly overwhelmed by hops and more hops. The grapefruit aftertaste lingers for a long time. Please brew this again!

The colour is gold (8 EBC), the liquid is almost clear. The two finger head is compact and off-white; it sinks slowly leaving lots of thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is smooth with clean sweet notes, citric hops (grapefruit, orange peels, clementine, orange marmalade.), pine needles and fresh white bread. It is very balanced.

The first taste is sweet. Then, citric hops emerge with clementine, bitter oranges, grapefruits. Strong (but not sharp) bitterness. Pine needles, orange juice, lime ice cream. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is even bitterer with hints of gunpowder, grapefruit juice, butter cookies, olive oil and apricot candy. The long finish is bitter-sweet with grapefruits.

The carbonation is light, the small bubbles are fresh and long-lived. The liquid is smooth.

A solid and very fresh AIPA without any flaws. Just a bit more body and it would have been perfect.

A collaboration between Amager and Arizona Wilderness - An "Oatmeal IPA" that I've read about and looking forward to try!

This beer was released January 22, 2016 in Sweden's only place to by drinkable liquid with alcohol in it: Systembolaget.
ABV: 7%

The beer is really fresh and I LOVE that! Best before January 2017 and that should say that this beer is brewed in this January?

The beer pours light yellow and light hazy with a two finger high, white, fluffy head. A lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Boom! This is fresh! A lot of hops, citrus, grass, grapefruit, orange, carambola, honey and pine.
Taste: About the same as the nose. A lot of fresh hops. Grass, pine and resin. Sweet caramel malt. The taste also adds mango and more bitter grapefruit. A lot of bitterness!
I think a few people have problems with the high bitterness but i really like it!
Moutfeel: Fresh hops, almost a bit oily texture. Soft and smooth. Dry and bitter aftertaste.

This is a bold beer for grown ups! I love it!

Hazy yellow color with white, bubbly head. Aroma has notes of elderflower, melon, chive and some tropical fruits. Taste starts with melon notes and pretty intense grapefruit bitterness which goes on and on, lingering heavily in the aftertaste too. Body is quite heavy for an IPA. Feels also very soft but with a good amount of carbonation making it very easy to drink. If I could choose, I would turn down the bitterness a bit but except that, it's a very well made IPA.
