HonkeyBra (4026) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Ruddy, burnt orange color pour with light white head. Aroma of smoke, hops, citrus, some tropical fruits. Flavor is campfire smoke, caramel, Mild to medium bitterness. Pretty different and not necessarily in a bad way. Almost no sweetness, which I prefer in my IPAs (though, this is more like an english pale ale). Fairly carbonated. Finishes on a fairly dry note. Pretty nice.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light fruitiness, lots of sharp soapy hoppyness. Body is average, malty and lightly sweet and fruity flavor, sharp soapy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish – soapy hoppyness. Soapy IPA – perhaps wild hops just do not work so well.

CamdenD (1177) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2010
This was a very interesting IPA. Earthy/rauch type aromas hide any floral/citrus/pine hop aroma. Taste is mellow and mouthfeel silky. This is a great beer, just not worth the tag here in the States. Certainly worth the try!

Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.

Flavour is mild, some slight doughy malts in the front, light grassy and piney hops in the middle and a fair, grassy bitterness at the end with just a floral and black currants hint.
