Bottle at Lompa. This is good. Hazy golden color with thin white head. Aroma of dry fruits, a bit hoppy, with citrus. Sharp thin malty taste with some grapefruit and some caramel. Good body, goes well with food.

Pinball (10869) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2010
bottle from bunker beer. pours a clear orange, small bubbly head. very nice flowery and slightly bitterhoppy aroma. this thing is very hopped!. I also get some sweet malts and what i believe is yeast in the aroma. Aroma reminds me of southern tier beers. Flavor is flowery hoppy, mouldy, caramelly, Does not end as bitter as most other IPA’s of its kind. carbonation seems to be real low.

Definitely has a nice fruity aroma, albeit being light, but then it all just disappears when the beer enters the mouth where it’s all about cookieish malts. Medium bitterness. Would need some more hops to really cater to my taste.

BoBoChamp (5550) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2010
33cl, Swedish brewery, from Brouwerij de Molen Bodegraven, complex bitter brew, yet easy to drink, balanced, hazy, small head, nice brew, but expensive!

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 28, 2010
330ml bottle at the Bishop’s Arms, Stockholm, 13th Feb 2010. Cloudy copper colour. Lacy small head. Grassy, piney hop aroma. Dry, resinous taste. Quite thin palate for the strength but a long hop aftertaste.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2011 Aroma is still funky, caramel notes very strong, honey and bisquit. Taste is small bubbles, some caramel malts with hops (chinook, centennial perhaps??) not realy in balance. A bit watery finish and too little hop character imho. Old: 17 July 2010 2:56 PM 8 3 5 3 15 Aroma is funky, with hops of course. taste is kinda funky, hoppish but without that bitterness I would expect. However the funkiness (the bottle being old? I dont know) gave this beer a nice dimention never experienced in an IPA.
