I enjoyed this APA together with Ølbutikken co-owner Michael Feyk at his store on Istedgade. The recipe for this particular beer drafted by his business partner Jeppe “Evil Twin” Jarnit-Bjergsø.

Appearance 2/3

Pours an hazy orange (SRM 9) in my Cantillon snifter with a tiny but creamy off-white collar.

Aroma 9/12

The nose is of predominant fresh and flowery hops. There’s a less noticable malt aroma. It’s sweet though with plenty notes of grapefruit, lemon and cookie dough.

Flavor 16/20

Rather a filling and smooth taste this one. Caramalt and light hoppy bitterness washed with lots and lots of exotic fruits.

Mouthfeel 4/5

A very refreshing light to medium body with average carbonation.

Overall impression 7/10

Could this do as a summer ale? Yes sir indeed! Hipster Ale’s a refreshing and easily drinkable brew packed with complex flavors. Give me another one!

Total Score 38/50

Excellent – Exemplifies style well, requires minor fine-tuning.
