Ungstrup (34308) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes fruits, malt, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruits, straw, alcohol, malt, and a bit of alcohol, leading to a dry bitter finish. The alcohol burns slightly on the the tongue. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a cloudy deep golden with an off-white head. Fresh citrusy and piney hop aroma. Medium body, a little sweet caramel and fruit with massive herbal hop accents - almost medicinal. Very hoppy finish. Loads of hops here, but they don’t come out all that pleasant. 080411

Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has good fine carbonation. Very light malt base with a nicely judged light creamy sweetness. Hops bring a lovely nectarine and orange start. Fair dose of hop spice ensues with sweetish pine and a generic tropical fruit burst. Peach and mango resolve. Mildly sweet floralness before a light and hop spicy finish. This is my kind of DIPA. Light malt base, showcasing the fruity hop characteristics. And a nice way to raise a glass to the great man - Lemmy Kilmister. Super duper.

Draft at BikeBar. Beautiful aroma of freshly cut grass and mimosa trees. Taste of grass and citrus. My favorite at the pub.

fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Cloudy orange-amber color; small head. The aroma is nice because it’s not only hoppy, fruity, but also very sweaty, and fresh; grapefruit; very light tones of countryside, cereals, manure. Good body strength, toffee flavor, quite sweet but still with the mouthfeel agile (I prefer this than thick Double IPAs); prepotent hopping, with a balanced mix of fruity and resiny character. Luckily this is fresh, and really excellent.

Theydon_Bois (16854) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Keg at Hopworks Urban Brewery, 08/11/14. Clear orange amber with moderate off white edgeing. Nose is pinr, bitter citrics, tropicana, grapefruit. Taste comprises caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, orange pith, straw, light booze notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Decent DIPA.

Slight haze, fresh blackberry, floral nose, sweetish and then a little alcohol and bitterness come in late.

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2011
Pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, floral notes, caramel malts, a little pine and grapefruit. Extremely well-balanced, though pungent floral hops, grapefruit, pine and caramel. Wonderful, though stupidly priced.
