Canít believe I havenít rated this one, especially considering itís my daily drinker and a solid one at that. Flowery aroma but not too much like SN. Flavor is also more balanced than SNPA. Malty at first then finishes with slight bitterness. Thereís other flavors present but Iíve never been able to figure them out. Best guess is some roastiness.

Clear brown color, creamy medium-sized off-white head, lace. Flowery aromatic hoppy nose. Crisp, flowery hoppy ale. Well-balanced, good bitter aftertaste. Tasty.

I love hops and therefore love this beer. You wonít get much else, but thats alright with me. A nice cloudy pour and some sweet overtones make this a personal favourite.

BOTTLE: Initial smell is fruity (bananna). Strong fruity taste with a slight hop finish. Also has a floral hint in the finish

12oz bottle...Iíve been drinking this for a week, everyday...man, this is hoppy...I didnít recall it as being so massive in that direction...but this makes SNPA look like a MALTY beer! Head is lacking, but otherwise it looks yummy..smell is not so much grapefruit as I would have thought...maybe a bit light struck in my 6er this time...but the hop character seems FRESH aside from that...like my homebrew hop character...malt is just buried in hops...this is a nice lunch time or just after work beer for me, especially when I can sit on the patio and enjoy a mild sunny day.

Some spiceyness and layers to this beer. No better way to commemorate Paul Revereís ride...especially for a San Franciscan beer The beer of freedom and liberty and America. Some hoppiness and a little bit of smoke.

Golden, amber and transparent with a gorgeous meringue sitting proudly on top. I wasnít expecting that much head on it and was pleasantly surprised. Some Cascade citrus and floral features up my nostrils, but with an extra spicy twist. Good cookie malt presence, bitterness has more bite than your average pale ales, but smoother than an IPA. I really, really enjoyed this one. Proof once more that, for me at least, balance and nuance beats exaggeration and obstreperousness (my secret word for today).

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Amber coloured ale, slightly hazy wirth a pretty thin head. Has all the typical ale-charachteristics with caramel and a scent of flowers. Pronounced, dry hoppiness.

Nice creamy head. Aroma is sort of tropical and citrucy. A very hoppy kick that reminds me of st arnolds elissa, but not as strong. Tastes a bit toasty and finishes bitter. Quite enjoyable however.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 This was when it was introduced the hoppiest beer in America. We have sure come a long way thankfully. Some nice malt notes semi sweet and bready. Nice cascade dry hopping with good bitterness. Very clean and consistent with nice carbonation good conditioning {tiny bubbles} and balanced finish.
