This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

First, I gotta say, I love the comments on the bottle. Great beer with great sarcasm! Deep ruby red/orange brown coloring with strong hop aroma. Some minor alcohol in the taste but very strong good rich grapefuit hops taste and some creaminess near the end.

Aggressively hoppy. Fruity, roasted malt aroma. Bitter hop, mild toasted carmel/malt flavor. Seems a little unbalanced. Warming and chewy. Overall, pretty decent. I just wanted a little more malt strength.

This really smells like bud to me, but i really like it. A magnificent deep red color, with a nice tan head. Dry, bitter, and oh yes, hoppy.

Ungstrup (34644) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2004
A deep red beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and berries. The flavor is very complex with notes of cowberries, grass and enourmous amounts of hops which makes the end extremely grassy and dry. A wonderful beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this bottle.

HOPS! HOPS!!!! HOPS!!!!! A very interesting beer. Did I say hoppy, yes.. it delivers as advertised a dark red/coppery pour with a small tan head. And yes.. it tastes of hops. Not sure Id drink it again but definately worth tasting.

This is my favorite beer, after Stoneís IPA. It is EXTREMELY Hop-y. Very good aroma, very fruity. In flagstaff they have the 10th Anniversity edition, which is even better, but sadly sold out.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2004
Deep dark red with small persistent head and lacing. Lovely, lovely, precious aroma of fruit, berries and fresh, fresh hops. Mentholy fresh flavour with nice soaring hops. Coffe, or very dark chocolate, on aftertaste.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
As stated, very aggressive. Highly hopped, but also quite malty. Darker than expected with a somewhat clingy and plummy sweetness. Sort of splits the difference between IPA and IIPA.

On tap at the Yard House, Rancho Mirage. Boy oh boy! This was a big, harsh experience. Initially intense and flavoursome like brandy, but once it hits the back of the tongue this gives way to the biggest hoppy hit Iíve yet experienced. The climax has moments of smoothness and then of sweet, cloying, throat-grabbing brashness. Appears to be a quality product, but itís too much for me.
