COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

Geokkjer (5719) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of grassy and peachy hops, alcohol, malt, spruce and yeast. Flavor is sweet and bitter with some pine and biscuit. Medium body, average carbonation. A little hot, but still a nice IPA.

HonusWagner (1365) - Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2011
About what I expected, maybe a bit better, semi-sweet IPA with standard citrus hop varieties, assuming Centennial and probably Simcoe. A bit too much caramel to be amazing, but very good.

thornecb (4352) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Grapefruit and tangerine aromas. Full, dry and hot with sweet tangerine upfront turning to a lasting grapefruit finish.

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2011
330 mL bottle. Fantastic beer. Looks beautiful. Excellent use of hops at all stages of the brewing process. Pineapple is the prominent flavour, although it seems as though there are perhaps some earthy Brit or Euro hops in there as well. The flavour and bitterness go on and on. Outstanding.

Kristall-König (2207) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
Süß-zitrusartiger Geruch (Grapefruit, Maracuja). Antrunk süß und hopfenölig (Maracuja). Mitte malziger im Hintergrund mit einsetzender Bitterkeit. Abgang alkoholisch rosinig bitter-trocken. Ziemlich schwer.

Ungstrup (29211) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a huge dense orangey head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, caramel, and some spices. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops and alfa acid, combined with medium notes of alcohol, caramel, and malt, leading to a very bitter finish.

bhensonb (10906) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma is mild caramel, earthy, fruity and floral hop. Med+ body. Flavor is sweetish malt with a lot of floral and earthy hop. Heat is not noticeable. It’s mouthwatering. Finish is smooth caramel and lots of hop. Balanced? I don’t think the concept applies here. Finishes with lots and lots of non-harsh hop.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2011
Cloudy orange colored beer with a frothy diminishing head. Complex aroma eith notes of caramel, toffee, dried fruits, grapefruit, mango, peach, pineapple. Heavy sweet and heavy bitter in the mouth. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Somehow it’s sticky and crisp at the same time. Long dry, bitter and fruity finish. Meant to be drunk in a 50/50 blend with Yin as a bastard black IPA, but to be honest I think it’s better on its own. The blend tends to be a tad to sweet and soft, missing bitterness.

pours cloudy copper, consistent off white head that fades to a ring. subdued nose of citrus and pine. Taste- lots of resin, sweet roasted malts, pine, caramel malts and then a quick bitterness that fades. Sticky texture with light to medium body and medium finish.solid
