Rating #13from the european beer festival 2008.
Its amber with a light white head. Flowery aroma with some fruity notes. Not too powerfull and neither is the flavor (maybe its just my tastebuds gone numb) medium bitterflavor and feels abit disappointing comepared to everything else i had from this brewery.

Pours a deep amber, with a middle head. Good, hoppy scent. Taste is hops balanced with some spice. Clove? Real quality here, not often that you find an IPA balanced with spice over malt. A bit dry, good palate, good aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange color with a compact medium sized soapy white head with good sheets of lace. Aroma is intense pungent hops, immediately identifiable as Columbus (or Summit). Reminds me of Green Flash Imperial IPA. Armpit, onion, garlic, earthy, floral, perfume-like. Flavor is similar. Bitterness is medium. Columbus has such a unique and strong presence it is really dank and body odor-esque it’s hard for me to look around it. It kind of overshadows everything else. While this isn’t bad it certainly isn’t one of my favorites in the style.

Draught. Good caramelly hop aroma. Clear amber colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is teaish, actually a bit watery. OK bitterness. Not extraordinary, but quite drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap at Ølbaren. Pours clear and golden orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is mild peachy and light grapefruity with a light caramel note coming through. Flavour is smooth hoppy with a light bitterness and dominated by light oily palate emiting peach and grapefruity notes on the back of the tongue. Ends dry and bitter with a light fruity accent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours clear orange golden with a big, creamy, white head. Good duration. Nice aroma with pine, some fruity hops, mostly grapefruit and oranges. Lowish carbonation, quite dry and oily. Still it feels just a tad watery. Pleasant hoppy and bitter flavour, good pine and fruity hops. Good, long, dry finish.

Pours to nice hazy amber with minimal white head. Smell is interesting, fruitier than expected. Taste is bitter. Must admit that I’m not a big fan of IPA’s but this one is ok.

By far the best in their 12 pack sampler. Clear bright amber with a nice white head. Floral hop aroma. The dry hopping really makes this beer stand out.
