Pinball (10920) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2011
clear orange, smooth offwhite to white head. herbal spicy hoppy, flowery earthy aroma, hay.. still elegant and interesting. flavor is hay, flowers, herbal, hops bitterness, sweet but balanced mild soft malty base. Beer reminds me of small-scale rural craft beers like bøgedal and fuglebjerggaard, but this brew is a lot more delicate and "whole". If it gets too hot it seems to get a bit of "biere de garde" notes too. I don’t think You will want to drink this one above 12 celcius. Bottle recommends 10.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2010
(Bottled, 0,75l) Hazy amber, huge head. Fresh, grassy-lemony nose with pale-caramely maltiness. Flavor is quite bitter and herby with a fresh hop taste and no such ashiness or cat pee as in the Sladek. Medium body, slightly foamy. A nice and balanced, fresh IPA. 4635

thebeertourist (4900) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle from Man van Drank, Rotterdam. Pours hazy orange with a smallish head. Nice fruity hop aroma, hints of orange zest. Tastes quite bitter with orange zest like hoppiness leading the way, but also with some toffee in the finish. State of the art IPA.

from www.erzbierschof.ch - pours a cloudy dark orange colour with a robust and long lasting pale beige foam; nice lace; slightly buttery with notes of almonds and flowers; moderate carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel; medium-bodied and with a fair bitterness; the finish is almondy with plenty of hop presence - very pleasant

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours light hazy orange-amber with a great, creamy, white head. Great duration, lovely lacings. Great fruity aroma, some floral notes, apricot, oranges, red apple. Sweetish malts in the background. A slight peppery touch. Medium carbonation, great creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet, lots of malty backbone. The hops are light bitter, taste of flowers and fruit. Fair dryness in the end. Not that much bitterness actually. Extremely drinkable, though. Apricot, grapefruit, roses and a slight spicy, elderflower note. Very nice.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2010
In short: An overly yeasty IPA that is no very sessionnable. An ok beer at best.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed very fresh the day after purchase in Amsterdam
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is yeasty and hoppy and blends oranges, citrus and pine tree. Taste has cake malts, honey, caramel, yeast and banana notes leading to a moderately hoppy finish with oranges, pine-tree, citrus. Medium bitterness. Overall chewy sensation. Something about the strong yeast presence makes this one feel dirty and not highly drinkable like an IPA should be. Just decent. A lot of European IPAs are just like that, very yeasty, not clean, not crisp. Not something I appreciate in an IPA. That’s not how we make IPAs where I come from. Or maybe I think I know it all because I’m a French-Canadian. But it could be worse. I could be French-French.
