Bottle shared by northernbrews at the Sept. 09 Metro Detroit tasting. Amber pour with a loose white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, dry cedar, slight citrus, dry pine needles and a hint of juniper. The flavor is piny and minty with more juniper notes, a dry cedar finish and a sweet honey malt backbone. Creamy medium body with soft carbonation.

Much thanks to Hopshunter! Pours a very cloudy orange and never clears. Strong off-white head hangs forever with massive lacing. HUGE nose. I could smell this from 6 feet away. Grapefruit, lemon, spice and malts. Much more complex then the normal IPA citrus-fest. Extremely well balanced hops. Citrus up front that gives way to a spicy finish. Bitter to bring it home. I think a tiny bit more malt would balance this out perfectly. Sadly, cedar is non-existent. Mouth feel is a tad bubbly. I roll it around and it gets instantly foamy. Carbonation is pretty prickly. I’d tone it down a bit. I was worried about this. After the Cigar City swill that they call a RIS, I wasn’t expecting anything from this, but wow! As a cigar smoker, I was really looking forward to the cedar, but it’s not present at all. Great beer!

Thanks to Jeff for bringing this to the Metro Tasting. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is oranges, cedar and orange zest. Taste is much the same with a bit of spicy cedar character, grapefruit, well rounded and smooth. Pretty easy drinking stuff.

Bottle shared by MaxxDaddy. Cloudy orange pour with a wispy white head. Big, sweaty, funky hop aroma, a bit of spicy cedar. Sweet and chewy flavor, more cedar spice, and a mild sweaty funk. A nice beer but not 99th percentile good.

Ungstrup (33408) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma is very spicy - ginger and cardemomme, combined with notes of cedar wood and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of cedar wood, spices - ginger and cardemomme, oranges, on a malty back ground, leading to a dry spicy finish where the cedar wood note lingers.
