Pours a hazed orange, somewhat translucent, one finger head, thin lacing. Smells of bright citrus, candied fruits, earthy. Taste is crisp hoppiness, tropical, into a crackery buttery malt. Finishes lasting dryness and bitterness on the back of the tongue. Really well balanced, smooth and very drinkable.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Aroma is milky, yeasty, dank and oniony. Taste follows: oniony, milky, dank. Medium body with a dry bitterness. Really similar to the NE style IPAs.

Appearance: Murky yellow, big head.

Smell: Citrus, dank, vegetal. Not as strong as I would think for a DDH beer.

Taste: Balanced, bready and fruity. Moderate citrus. Very low bitterness.

Overall: Picked up a bomber with bottled date 5/11, consumed on 5/14. I've heard that sometimes with DDH beers they need to sit for a week or two after bottling for best results. I suppose I should have done that with this beer because it was pretty underwhelming considering the massive amount of praise in other reviews. I would call it a well made pale ale but nothing spectacular.

L: Pours hazy in a tulip glass with minimal head.
S: strong pineapple and grapefruit
T: hop forward. The taste isn't quite what is picked up on the nose, but still Insanely good with a great grapefruit finish
F: medium carbonation, great mouthfeel.
O: one of the best pale ales I've had. The hops are intense, with a slightly bitter finish.

F: light carbonation. Creamy finish with a slight bitter linger.

O: probably the best pale ale I have had. Grab you some of this.
