Orange/gold color pour. Strong hoppiness, sweet caramel, pine needles, orange peel, and grass. It’s a nice brew, worth getting.

<i>Tasting at Papsoe</i>
Hazy golden color; big head. The strong hop aroma is resiny and a bit fruity, piney. Good toffee flavor, dry mouthfeel, because of an extreme hopping, very resiny and piney. Very good.

yespr (33066) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2008
RB US-CA#300: 22 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours hazy orange with a huge white head. Dense hoppy and peachy aroma, classic So-Cal and inviting. Smooth and fruity to a light bitterness in the flavour. Dry apricot note and dry yet also fruity hoppy flavoured. Hoppy and dry malty into the finish. Smooth.

shadey (1931) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2008
22oz bottle. Acquired in trade. The pour is a nice amber orange with a thin layer of white lace on top of the beer and on the glass. Aroma is fresh resiny hops. That’s all I smell. Very fresh and the taste was what I was hoping. Really satisfying biting hops up front, then lightly sweet malts followed up by the bitter bite on the sides of my tongue. This beer is chuggably good.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle. [Tasting session @ Papsoe, 31-10-2008] Huge thick creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Hazy golden color. Aroma of grapefruit, apricot, floral, grass, caramel, grain. Over the palate came almost herbal, grapefruit, sweet fruit mix. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Lingering dry bitter finish.

bhensonb (11685) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Slightly hazy copper color with a white head that didn’t stand up for long. Very fruity aromas. Not at all resiny. Slight aroma of caramel backing. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is a little piney, perhaps, but I think it is mostly floral. A little bit tart. It’s not really bitter. Astringent seems more appropriate. My mouth is sort of shrinking from all the hop. This drinks really well.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseman. Deep orange color, thin white head. Fruity hop character, pineapple and citrus, mild malts underneath. Moderate hop notes, good malt base, mild lingering finish. Decent IPA that stays just short of astringency.
