12 fl oz bottle, thanks to faroeviking. Pours hazy orange with a creamy and dense head. Dry hoppy and fruity aroma. Flavour is dry hoppy with a bit of liqource-like note. Very dry finish, hoppy and slight spiced.

Ungstrup (29817) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2005
A hazy orange beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of honey. The flavor is sweet with hops being most dominant, aroma as well as bitter hops, the latter giving it a bitter, grassy, dry end. OK.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, clear amber with a small, white head. Incredibly lovely aroma hops in the nose with the Chinook really shining through. Rather light body with vague notes of caramel malt. But completely dominated by the great hops, that also leave an immense bitterness. 291205

Bottle. Clear amber coloured with a white head. Fruity aroma of basil and hops. Hoppy flavour of fruits and grape fruits. Hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured, small white head. Strong flowery hoppy nose with weak hints of leather. Strong flowery, kind of sweetish, hoppy flavour. True to it’s style and pleasantly balanced, but still nothing to go "weeeeee" for.

omhper (19932) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2003
Bottled. Brownish amber with brief head. Wonderful lightly grapefruity aroma. Dry with clean, hard mouthfeel and nicely balanced bitterness.

Well, I guess that the aroma is not as much strong, the beer has some light mint character and is not too much impressive.

2003-12-17, bottle, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Light amber color, creamy head. Strong aroma, hoppy, strong hop flowers, mango, apricots, caramel. Smooth, malt and caramel, hoppy fruitness, well mixed with the others. Very good hop fruity final, but shorter than usual. Finally, a good and easy to drink IPA, less aggressive than many others.
