Ølfabrikken 100 Gram India Pale Ale

$7.99 bomber at Dukes Package, Marietta, GA, USA.
Murky, light brown pour into the US pint glass. Lack of clarity, and a turbid brown color rather than the orange end of the spectrum. Decent head, but lace fades quickly. Average looking.
Sweetened grapefruit in the nose.
Very sweet. Plenty of unrefined sugar upfront and this does not fade and as a result it tends to leave a sugar deposit in the mouth, on the tongue and the teeth. Some bitterness in the finish (the hops are obviously there), but the whole thing is shrouded in a sweet cloak.
Lacks definition for me – a dull beer, and for someone that generally likes sweet things I found it all a bit taxing. Slick in the mouth – lacks a clean edge.
Pricey as well as average, so not one I’ll visit again soon.
