Ungstrup (29072) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with light notes of malt. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of citrus and straw, leading to a dry bitter finish. I’m not overly impressed.

Very light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and slightly viscous, semi dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malts precede alcohol dryness and spice. Little resinous pine and citrus. Mild hop spice. Light finish. Clunky but passable.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2007
Cloudy orange-amber color. Good hopping, powerful and resiny, a bit fuity (bitter oranges); but the sweetness and malt flavor are not enough for me; there is also a light vegetables touch. Good.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a slightly unclear golden body with an off-white head diminishing rather quickly. Hop-driven aroma leaving room for the sugary malts. Pine and resin. Sure nice, but a bit gentle maybe. Very sugary flavor, sure on the malty side, with pine and resin. Full body. Long finish with sugary malts, resin and pine. Delicious, but not in the west coast way.

(Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with an average white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor of hops and caramel malt with a bitter, somewhat sticky finish.

Bottle @ Kolding Bryglaug Americans tasting.
[thank you, myrup!]
Pours hazy orange with a creamy, lightly yellow white head. Aroma is lots of citric hops, some grapefruit and a chewy biscuity malts background. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Flavour is pretty sweet, medium crispness, lots of citric and fruity hops. Good, but there are better IIPA’s.
