Beautiful West coast ipa with a lot of mango and passion aroma and a dry finish. Highly recommended!

I don't understand why this beer is marked "retired"; I bought it recently, and it's not marked as being retired on the brewery's home page. Anyways: It's a great, strong+dry IPA, with a discreet fruity touch.

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Technobabylon. Great resinous body. Tropical fruits in aroma and lots of orange in taste. From a collaboration between these 2 great breweries nothing bad could surge.

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%.

Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is slightly dank, grassy with some overripe stonefruits. Taste starts sweet and fruity but gets quickly bitter and dank with some chives, lovage and dill. Body is medium with a good amount of carbonation. Aftertaste is quite bitter. Quite nice, dank IPA overall.

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.

400ml on-tap at ├śrsted ├ślbar, Copenhagen (60 Danish Krone):
Very enjoyable but also very bitter, this was strongly hopped & intense with plenty variety from the tropical fruits coming through. There was some nice sweetness too thanks to the vanilla, caramel malts & even some butterscotch showing. I got a nice kick from the alcohol & there was a good citrus tang as well. Very complex & interesting, I really liked this one & definitely wouldn't mind having it again. The bitterness could have been toned down slightly though but overall it was a good one & well worth trying.

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 ...

Orange pour, just a bit misty. Small sticky white froth.
Smell of stale citrus, biscuit, touch of sulphur, grain, faint tropical notes. Not too fresh.
Taste sets things right. Rich grapefruit and pineapple (syrup and seed) up front, with a slice of mango and peach. Lime, spicy leafiness too, pretty early. Malts are sweet with caramel, but retain a dry grainy note that doesn't quite fit in. Finishes with rough hop oils, a bit dank, some dried spruce, really really bitter.
Aftertaste has strong hop, pine, tons of grapefruit peel and perfumey floral notes. Medium body, prickly carbonation.
A really really bitter IPA that has that nice Port Brewing profile, but also some weird bad notes. In the end, still good.

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.

The beer is ready to go in the yellow color. The foam is white with medium bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. The scent is fresh humlig. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, lime. Smells also some grain and grass with little flowers. The taste has great hops, dry and bitter. The hops plays the main role here and it shows. The flavors of grapefruit, lemon, orange, green bananas, unripe berries. A hop bomb sitting in a while with subsequent bitterness. Easy to rich body. Medium carbonation. Dry and bitter.
