Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is like sticking your head into a hop plant - hops and oil all over. The flavor is also very hoppy on a sweet background with notes of oil and loads of bitterness, that draw out the mouthwater.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark amber, unfiltered with a pretty flat head and some sediment. Pronounced hoppiness in the nose, in fact the hops saturates this beer - they’re simply all over and returns in the palate. One of the most hardcore IPA’s I’ve had.

omhper (19435) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2006
Bottled. Amber colour, average head. Strikingly hoppy nose with pear and lychee. Initilally it’s dry with rounded mouthfeel. It’s dominated by sweaty hops, but there is enough malt not to make it too lopsided. Some malt sweetnes comes through before a finish which is very bitter.

madmitch76 (15120) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
2nd July 2008. Crisp amber beer with a dry finish. Quite a mild hop profile but enough to keep it interesting. A little malt in the finish.

Parallel with 90 Minutes and Sixty-One

Hazy golden color with small head. The aroma is lightly malty; the mouthfeel is smooth, it has some pale malt flavor, correct bitterness, but not much hop quality.
Disappointing.

Beautiful golden color and big creamy head. Very nice hop aroma, crispy, a bit nutty, and fruity (mature apricots and raisins). Some good malt flavor, unable to balance the huge amount of hops, with a lot of caramel character. Enjoyable.
