Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Draft at the Euston Tap. Pours clear, shiney gold with a modest, tight, white head. Good and hoppy nose with pine and light fruits, along with tons of malt. Very sweet flavor with notes of caramel and honey, and plenty of bitterness, but not at all abrasive. Medium to full in body with average carbonation and a fairly resinous mouthfeel. Lightly warming on the finish with tons of sweetness, malty caramel and sugar, and plenty of lingering bitterness. Just great and super drinkable. Worth the reputation.

madsberg (10136) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2003
Bottled: Clear dark golden coloured. Off white frothy medium lasting head. Very hoppy aroma. Fruit accents. Flavour is dominated by the hops. Wellbalanced. Starts mellowed but explodes in a acrid bitterness on the palate. This bitteness grows as the beer warms up, and sit on your palate for quite a long time. Nice. Have tried several of these imperial IPA's and kind of like them, but find it hard to find distinct differences in the samples. Thanks to Raindog for this.

Maria (10125) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Københavnske Øldage 07. Golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is nicely hopped, but not as much as I hoped for. The flavour is sweetish with notes of caramel, pine, grass and citrus, but again, a lot less than expected. It’s nice, but compared with a lot of other nice DIPA’s, I think it could have a lot more personality. 2131

(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Yellow, white head. Dry hoppy aroma, citrus, floral but also with some smotth malty notes. Really hoppy flavor, oily, fruity, citrus, grassy. Hoppy, metallic finish.

Clear orange with medium white head. Aroma of flowers and banana. Big hops of course, but also some tones of citrus. Very dry finish. Good one.
