yespr (40811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2010
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry pinewood hoppy and slight grapefruity. Sweet, sugarish and mild hoppy grapefruity. Rather sweet and sugarish into a lingering caramelish finish. Subdued hoppy - a bit unfortunate for an double ipa...

Ungstrup (34635) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2010
Bottled. An unclear dark amber beer with a thin yellowish head. The aroma as notes of hops and grapefruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and grapefruit, leading to a bitter finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head. Very sweet caramel and fruit aroma. Solid body, sticky and sweet caramel, somewhat medicinal - this is almost cloying. The hops are almost killed underneath the syrupy sweetness. Damm, this is a bit much! 120910

Cloudy amber beer. Little suddy white head. Marmalade hop nose. Softish palate, a little syrupy. Moderate carbonation. Rich marmalade orange and grapefruit hops, not that bitter but with loads of depth. Spicy. Good malt base, juicy toffee caramel. Finishes with well integrated aniseed alcohol. Lingering spicy aftertaste. Very drinkable and very moorish. As much barleywine as DIPA. Sumptuous.

75 cl bottle, 2010, courtesy of SeaBass, thank you sir! Murky copper color, medium tan head. Aroma of caramel, hay, grass. Taste is slightly sweet malt, with an edge of bitterness. Very nice.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2011
A: The beer pours a somewhat murky/yeasty orange color with a slightly off-white head. S: Some nice citrus hops to start with, and a little bit of tropical fruitiness, but overall this beer is too sweet for me. Moderately bready with quite a bit of caramel. Hints of brown sugar and booze. T: There are some good points to the flavor, for instance it has a nice citrus and tropical fruit note. Unfortunately, it’s absolutely too sweet and sugary. Minimal pine bitterness can’t save that. M: Medium in body with a definite stickiness and medium carbonation. O: Too sweet and malty (and yes, this was when it was pretty fresh). Not my kind of IPA.

Bottle @ Papsø-Grand-Tasting, September 2010. Pours unclear orange with a small creamy white head and lacings. Grapey nose - hops. Fruity hoppy and quite sweet malty. Dry and hoppy end with some sweetness. Smooth palate.
