yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. A hazy, dark golden beer with a foamy, off-white head, two-finger thick. Lots of cedar on the nose. Not much left of the normal IPA aromas. Touch of something bretty too. Cedarish flavor too, some sugary maltyness and a nice bitterness. Spiced. Full-bodied, lightly warming and pleasantly carbonated. Long, cedarish, bitter finish with some spicyness. A really nice beer, but I miss the IPA aromas and flavors. They’re there, but too subdued. Wonderful cedar aroma and flavor though. Nice. 110917

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
Amber. Basically bright with a thick head that dies down, leaving a thick lace on the glass. Rich woody aroma with earthy, fruity hops - complex nose for an IPA. Heavy cedar character - very woody. The malts are big, slightly sticky and with a biscuity taste. There is a lot of bitterness, too, earthy and with some citrus and resiny notes. Bold brew, my type of IPA.

thewolf (11114) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Pours lovely, clear amber with a medium, nice creamy, slightly off-white head. Great lacings. Aroma has mild wood, apricot, white pepper, peach and sweet crispy malts. Mild, light prickly carbonation, great dry and light creamy palate. Flavour is very elegant and still quite complex. Very bitter, but the wood kinda soaks it up a bit and softens everything out wonderfully. Peach, white pepper, apricot, red apple. Long lingering bitter finish. Absolutely wonderful beer.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2011
Cloudy pale amber with a lasting off-white head. Oh, what an aroma! U/nique combination of spice and citrus! Lots of pepper, some orange and pineapple, and a unique touch of cedar, not unlike brettanomyces. Sweet and spicy flavour with lots of fruity hop chracter, and plenty cedar. Reasonably bitter with lots of wooden aftertaste. The sweetness could have been on the cloying side if I didn’t have to share the bottle...
