Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2007
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is very sweet and very hoppy giving it notes of grass as well as citrus. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of grass as well as some citrus, leading to a very dry and bitter end, where the grass lingers around.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) This pours a pretty, warm, hazy amber colour with a dense and delicious, creamy, off-white head. Fresk, slightly perfumy hop aroma. Medium-bodied with sweet caramel malt and then very fresh and delicate - although quite soapy - hop notes. Yum. Courtesy of Degarth. 170207

Draught at Concordia, Portland. Clear dark amber. Rich hoppy grapefruit aroma. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Mindblowingly hoppy. Resiny finish with approximately a gazillion IBU. Crazy stuff.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 New rating: Dull dark colour with haze. The aroma shows grapefruit, wood. Chewy character with toffee and resiny hops. Fat bitterness.

Original rating: Dark, hazy, amber-brown colour. Earthy aroma with a hint of citrus and malt. Thick, clean, crystalmalty body balanced with lots of bitterness but surprisingly understated aromatics for a PNW IPA. Ar 6 Ap 3 Fl 7 P 3 Ov 12 = 3.1

UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 (Bottle) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a large long-lasting yellowish-beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and pine. Flavor of toasted malt and plenty of hops with a bitter finish.

argo0 (11450) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2004

bhensonb (10931) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Aromas of caramel malt and citrusy hop. Dark, red tinged, amber color with an off-white head that rapidly diminished. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation with no bite. Toasty malt sweetness. Good balancing hop, which I still think is citrus, but could be floral. The finish is almost dry, and the bitter is wonderful. Warming alcohol arises. What a great ale.
