Ungstrup (31419) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer iwth a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, peaches, and grass, leading to a very bitter finish.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Sweet caramellish aroma - hardly any hops at all! Fairly rich body, again sweet thick caramel and a floral hoppiness, bubblegumish. Quite some bitterness, but not a fresh, crisp hoppiness. Best before is March 2014, so I guess it’s not an old beer. Old hops? 150812

Bottled (from Arkadia, thanks Lövis!). Amber colour with a small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is fruity and floral with some mild hints of toffee and sweet malts. Flavour is being quite similar in a nice balance, not that overly hopped. The alcohol also gives some slight sweetness to the beer.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Hazy amber color; medium sized head. The alcohol and some hop try to hide a smell of vegetables and puke. Strong body; round mouthfeel with caramel and malt flavor, some sweetness, but it also has a vegetables presence, and some yeast; strong bitterness.
Messy and rather unpleasant.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle at Patricks. It pours an unclear, dark orange body, almost flat and headless. It’s lightly vegetal on the nose, with malty sweetness and some fruity hoppyness. The flavor has some of the same vegetal touch as the aroma, doesn’t impress in any way. There’s also malty sweetness, fruityness and dark sugar, some bitterness towards the end. Full body. Not my favorite double ipa in any way. 120128

Bottle from Salling. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich malt, bitter hops, flowers, caramel and bready notes. Has a long bitter finish.
