HenrikSoegaard (13286) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Vintage BB2006. Still Ok though! Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy powerfull brett notes! Not intentional I think but fun and nice. Heavy bitter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.

Bottle. Best before 2006. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are brett, fruits, malt and hops. Off perhaps, but in a good way.

Bottle Conditioned. Poured a golden coloured beer with a thin white head. The aroma is of citrus with a hint of bitter orange, dry hoppy finish.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a muddy pale orange with a small creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy with lots of flowers and a little pine and a little background caramel. Nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very bitter and dry. Good bity biscuitness and pilsner/caramel sweetness behind the flowery bitterness. A wonderful, nice, english IPA.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 1) Bottled, months ago. Shining gold with white lace. Big, resiny, sappy aroma drenched with citrus. Whole hop leafiness with a hint of pinecone. Juicy fibrous pineapple and blood orange. Lip-smacking hop juiciness leading to a quinine-bitter finish. Dangerous refreshment ,and an aromatically fruity IPA. 2)Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton. Orange gold with a loose foamy top. Aroma labrador and soft slushy fruit; melon and green apple. Dominant oak, stillness, TCP, diluted wash of orange . I like the oak but it’s weird in a pale, IPA-like effort. 535312.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle. Light amber colour with a thick, rocky head. English hoppiness in the nose- the mix of flowers and grass. Flavours start on the sweet side, and remains there, despite the grassy hops. Not my favourite, unfortunately.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
I had very high expectations for this one after loving Jaipur and Hophead and was not quite let down, but I did not like it as much as the preceding glorious brews. Clearish golden ale wearing a small white cover. Highly aromatic with strong floral and limey notes sparkled on by fresh cut grassiness and an out of place acetone tang. Pleasant despite the off-tone and brightly clear flavours in mouth, supported by a medium body. Well carbonated for a mostly thin, bready cask ale.
