Sweet, hoppy and very clean, this is an everyday ipa for me. Memorable because of a little mishap in the alcohol volume here, this was sold in the normal shops and they aren’t supposed to sell over 4,7% stuff. No wonder this was more delicious than the run of the mill ordinary shop IPAs.

HonkeyBra (3358) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2008
I had the old version a while ago. I remember it to be rather unremarkable, I remember thinking: are they sure this is an IPA? Overall, I’d say I thought it was average.

HenrikSoegaard (10480) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle. I am a little confused. Is this the new or old version. it is 4.7 ABV and 36 IBU so none of the desciption on ratebeer matches. BB 03.08. Creamy white excellent mostly lasting head. Orange-yellow colour. Light malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Flowers and herbs present. Harsh bitter flavor. Long harsh bitter finish. Creamy palate. Not my style but nice.

Plovmand (6459) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with medium white head. Good hoppy aroma with fresh fruits and grass dominating. Flavour is hoppy too but it lacks the freshness. Dry bitter end.
