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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This one pours a crystal clear, pure orange-golden color with a medium white head, which leaves a thin lacing.

Aromas are rich roasted malt, caramel and toffee, followed by piney and fruity notes and a good hop profile with a tropical influence of mango and papaya.

The taste reveals a good balance between sweeter bready malts with toffee and very fruity hops with added complexity, due to sharper notes of grapefruit, blood-orange and lemon peel. The medium carbonation works fine with the smooth mouthfeel of this beer, while a touch of wild grass comes up, leading to a slightly dry finish. Balance is very well set, the summerlike, tropcial, smooth impression lasts till the very end. The bitterness of the aftertaste is noteable for quite some time, a short, sharp sting from the carbonation down the throat is the final stroke of this enjoyable IPA.

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.

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.
