yespr (37603) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy to murky orange with a dense and slowly diminishing tan head. Extremely inviting hoppy and caramel malt aroma, light yeasty note too - lovely! Flavour is classic hops dry with a mild fruity note towards a light wooden note. Has a mild liqourice bite too. Medium dry caramel malt base. Goes into a light bitter finish with a mellow yeasty note. Fantastic inviting aroma while the flavour is a bit so and so.

Ungstrup (32195) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
An orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet ans slightly flowery, intertwined with light notes of caramel. The flavor is very simple - with some hops as well as some grassy notes, and a dry end. Not enough hops to make my day - it is British in its IPA interpretation.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy, orangey golden with a small, creamy head. Slightly unpleasant phenolic aromas. Malty with a weird tartness and a dry, rough, bitter finish. No real pleasure. 120805

joergen (24774) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
Bottled at RBESG 2005. Hazy amber coloured with a small white head. Sweet aroma of cookies, hops and fruits. Fruity flavour with hoppy notes. Haven’t much to do with IPA.

oh6gdx (23917) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is hops and yeast. Flavour is hoppy all the way through. Also some hints of yeast and grass. Smooth to drink and a very pleasant IPA.

omhper (22327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Cloudy amber. Vague orange aroma overpowered by alcohol. Sweet and solidly malty with notes of peach and clean mouthfeel. The hops add bitterness but not much aroma and flavour. Simple.

fiulijn (17487) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Hazy dark amber color with red shades; the head is really too much (strange). Aroma of English hop. Medium dry mouthfeel, some malt and caramel flavor, quite strong bitterness, later some sweetness comes out too. A bit too much yeast in the end. An English style IPA, just more bitter than the average. Not much aromatic. Pleasant.

harrisoni (16056) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle at GBBF 2007. Hazy copper, lasting beige head. Interesting hop aroma, strong but really grapefruity. Very piney, redcurrant bush leafiness. Different, characterful. Some berries. It is rather interesting.
