Bottle. Pours a dark orange color with a white head. Aroma is of tropical fruits, like pineapple, mango, some white grape notes, orange and tangerine with some caramel malt. The flavor is no way near as hoppy as the aroma indicated, so I guess this is an older bottle. I get the tropical fruit notes, some grapefruit and orange, but lots of caramel and sweet malt in there with toffee notes. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty good IPA, that I am sure is amazing fresh!

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Very fresh and intense tropical fruit aroma from the hops. Medium-bodied, first a little caramel but otherwise extremely fruity, plenty of notes of ripe blackcurant from the Kiwi hops. Dry and hoppy finish. Lovely. 090812

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, at TFODRBSG-12. An unclear, amber beer topped by a dense, off-white head. The aroma has caramel, some cat pee notes and a peachy touch. A bit boring and lacking on hops. Caramel, peaches, citrus and some piney notes in the flavor. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Rather short finish. Probably not as fresh as it should be any longer. 120818
