Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours amber golden with tiny impurities and a small, creamy white head. Fresh, citrusy, grapefruitish aroma. Quite full-bodied with some caramel and then some extremely perfumy aroma hops leaving a rather extreme bitterness. 080107

on tap. this had a very big citrus nose and huge citrus hoppy bitter taste. malt is only evident midway through taste. personally i thought this was a wonderful hop bomb.

I cant believe sliffy and i rated this exactly the same. Poured a orangish yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma was of citrus and perfumy. Pretty sweet and malty but very balanced for a IIPA. Pretty good IIPA.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle: Copper in color with a white head. Aroma, oranges, floral, some herbal hops. Really bright aroma. Flavor, floral hops, some sweetness, a nicely bitter finish. The flavor was almost purfumey, a new hop character to me, which is always nice. This was really good.

madsberg (10111) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2007
Bottled. LIght amber coloured. Unclear. Off white dense head. Pines, herbs, flowers and a quite dense light fruity balance. Flavour as well is totally balanced and smooth. I’m really impressed by the sweet fruits, that totally counter the hard attack from a dense and vivid pinye hoppyness. Flowers and light spicy notes mingles with some light chocolate. Full bodied. Is dry. Has a fantastic bitterness in the end. Man I love this brew. Thanks to Degarth for the trade.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JAN 7, 2007
22oz bottle- Pours into a Johns Grocery snifter, a slightly hazy medium amber color pushing slightly towards the lighter shades. A small ring of white foam finishes out the appearance. The aroma is disappointing giving the description on the bottle and the style in question. It is distinctly apple, apple cider, and maybe even a little hint of sour apple as well. My friend who tried to get the aroma brought up church wine. Drinking this is thick and syrupy, here comes the hops. Big and flavorful, not overpowering though. Just big and there. I love it.

Bottle from cquiroga...apricot puree body with no head..aroma of heavy sugared ruby-red grapefruit...harsh, piney flavor with a very light sugar complement..very clean, very crisp; almost overwhelming, but overall very nice

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle from cquiroga, sampled with badnewsbeers. Hazy orange body, thin-medium off-white head. Sugared grapefruit pulp and rinds dominated the aroma. And, the body. This is about as close as I’ve come to biting into a fresh grapefruit, a pulpy, bright, citric, bitter beer with just enough sugary malts to cut the palate-destroying hops. Quite an interesting beer, but I still tasted it a day later.

22oz - Thanks Foolish_Mortal - Aroma is fresh picked hops, citrus, caramel and pine. Very earthy and distinct for each characteristic. Pours copper with a small head and little lacing. Flavor is pine first, then a slap in the face with an orange wedge followed by a smooth spoonful of caramel. Earthy hops linger all over your mouth begging for attention. Palate is sharp, tangy, creamy and smooth. There is a lot going on here and I am going to enjoy every last ounce. A great DIPA.

Odeed (1775) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 clear orange body with not much head to speak of.aroma was very nice and mixed up ice tea,orange sherbert,pine needles,grapefruit....wow.it goes on forever.flavor is a mix of the same with a bit or caramel malt thrown in as well.mouthfeel is super sticky and the brew slides down the throat.the palate lingers on for minutes and all i can think about is grabbing my snifter for another sip.this is truly a world class beer and a fine example of a west coast/san diego ipa.
