Veholt «Humlehelvete» (8,3%) 5/6

HumlehelveteMedium dark brown colour and subtle aroma of fruity hops, is what this imperial IPA gives away. Coated with small hat, expectations are high as the ceiling, being all too familiar with this proceeder’s original, Two Captains (Nøgne Ø, which the brewer won the brewing contest that led to the mentioned beer with). Little carbonization, but exactly the same delicious, massive fruity vibes of T.C.- only that it’s not overshadowed by the hops. Maltsweetness in combination with spruce tips, citrus, green apples and a hint of caramel, before mild, outstandingly great hopfeatures sends the mind off to summerly assocciations, slowly puts a fading final to this exeptionally work of art. Velvety bitter layer surrounds the gums. At least on par, if not better than «the original».
