Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Clear golden with an off-white head. Somewhat rustic hop aroma - not particularly fresh. Medium body with a dry fruitiness, ends bitter - but again, not particularly fresh in its hoppiness. 280412

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a glowing orange with good carbonation and a nice white cap, lots of lacing S: Floral and citrus dominate the nose T: A nice graininess upfront with floral and light citrus notes. Pretty standard. M: Light to medium body, well carbonated, light slickness on the end O: Just a cut above average and easy to drink

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemons, hops, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, dusty hops, and grapefruit peal, leading to a bitter finish.

Strykzone (4812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We had one together via facebook chat. I rolled my bottle as there was yeast sediment. Maybe that is why the head was so big. It is beige in color and leaves tat work lacing and has good retention. The beer is cloudy and tea colored. A nicely hopped aroma is citrus and then pine with some malt. The flavor begins with citrus hops. They are light grapefruit but not overly so. My taste buds appreciate the less than massive bitterness. A bit of orange, perhaps. Yeast, too. The malt was not really caramel and was at one time like oatmeal. Interesting. The finish brought lemon. I liked this beer and could drink a ton of it. Thanks, Ron.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Sampled at the AZ Strong Beer Fest. Dark tangerine pour with a small beige head. Pretty bright hop presence in this one with loads of orange peel and minimal pine. Caramel malt backbone doesnít distract from the citrus. Also has a hint of marijuana. Pretty decent stuff.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 9, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #18. Hazy light brownish color, bottom of the bottle so itís a little thicker than normal Iím sure. Toasty hop aroma, almost burnt. Flavor is similar, more toastiness to go along with the hops and a really mild aftertaste. (2159)

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Pours hazy light amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is citrus. Med body or better. Flavor is citrus - but not grapefruit. Thereís a malt backbone that is pleasantly overborn by hop. So should we appreciate a beer that just obliterates malt with hop? Heck yes we should!!!!!!!&# Nice dry, bitter finish. Yum.

Ratman197 (9514) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2012

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a mildly hazed (but noticeably bottle conditioned) golden body with a very large, just barely off-white head. Aromas are of pine, citrus and caramel. Old school. Soapy. That said, there is a noticeable nutty, malt character. Some soil and marmalade. Dry biscuits. Flavors are malt forward. Bready, nutty, biscuity, sunflower seeds. Very bitter. Citrus and pine. Tastes like an IPA that would have been made 10 years ago. Strong bitterness, mildly floral and citrusy hops (little in the flavor compared to other hop attributes). Seems all C-hop (I do wonder if the name hints to Delta hops, but if so I canít taste them). Nutty, ice tea. Good, but not very good or different. A bit of a co-humulone bite. Some ester that borders on a mild ethyl acetate. Medium bubbles, medium to fuller body for the style. Kind of bummed by the out come here. I do like Beer Valley, and they can make some very solid hoppy beers. This just seems like an IPA brewed by going through the motions. Perhaps harsh, but...
