What about the beer?
Colour is amber orange with a small white—  head. Aroma has resin, orange and alcohol. Taste starts with bittersweet piny citrus kick. Strong resiny bitterness takes over with grapefruit and sweetish orange. Towards the end bitter pine and grapefruit come dominant with alcohol kicking in. Aftertaste has very dry & bitter pine and warming fruity alcohol.
Strong piny India Pale Ale. Bitter pine goes to the limit just without going over it. Nice orange, grapefruit and alcohol flavours, too. Stands out of the crowd. High quality brew.


I’m starting to slowly believe that Ölbeat is not just random word play and that this blog is actually used to promote Volbeat. It’s those damn Danes. But, as long as breweries name beers with heaven/hell themes, that shit keeps happening and it’s ok.
