Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 An orange beer with a small but disppearing white head. Both the aroma is slightly sour, malty, and slightly hoppy. I loved this beer before I joined RateBeer, especially when I had it at the brewery - but 2 years and 2500 beers later it has become boring - it is a little sad, but also shows how much my world of beer has improved.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Orangey golden with a moderate head. Hoppy and aromatic, but far from the bitterness and character found in other IPAs.

Bottled (Thanks Degarth!). Orange colour, small white head. Aroma is hops and grass. Flavour is grass, hops and some weak caramelly hints. Not very exciting IPA.

Very pleasant juicy hops, grapefruit dominates. A sweet malt base and a mild malty finish. Nice.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Blond color. Nice hoppy aroma, some fudge. The malt body is too thin, there is the usual caramel flavor, quite strong hopping but not too special, just some dry resins. Plain.
