mile (3400) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly lastinghead. Moderate, malty and caramel sweet aroma, some alcohol and butter, light hoppyness. Body is medium, flavor matches the aroma except that flavor is bit drier due to alcohol and hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, alcohol. Strong Belgian ale, too much alcohol and toffee sweetness.

mjs (5200) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2010
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Oud Arsenaal) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was large, long lasting and white. Aroma had yeast, fruitiness and hops. Palate was medium bodied with lot of carbonation. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, malts, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. The name is a bit misleading: there is a clear hop character but it’s nothing intense. Don’t expect US style IPA hoppiness. German Pils is closer.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2010

tkrjukoff (4169) - SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2010
Pours with a beautiful clear deep bright amber colour. Very nice champagne like carbonation. Has a dense off white head leaving nice lacing. Full bodied malty, syrup, fruity and hoppy aroma. Even full bodied malty mouthfeel. Fruity, malty, hoppy, alcohol flavor. Easily drinkable and has lots of taste. Acidy sour and hoppy palate. Finishes very nice with a pleasantly sweet and tart hoppy longlived aftertaste.

dingol66 (68) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 14, 2010
Assaggiata in bottiglia da 33 cl. Ottimo aspetto dorato pallido e leggermente torbido., con una schiuma alta, soffice e persistente. Molto aromatica con predominanza di profumi erbacei derivanti dal luppolo. Il corpo è gradevolmente gustoso con un gusto forse un po’ salato che ricorda vagamente la Orval. Il finale amarognolo, ma non invadente, è molto lungo e piacevole.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2010
If you’re gonna name your beer "hopus", then include some hops in it. Is that so difficult?

pivnizub (9199) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2010
Bügelverschlußflasche: Pale golden, hazy, big stable and lacy creamy head; fruity (oranges and orange-peel) and hoppy-bitter nose; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour with a certain tartness, medium bodied; lingering tart-fruity and dryish hoppy (almost piney) finish. Good....

ilovedarkbeer (2436) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Pours a hazy grayish orange color with a large foamy white head. Notes of bay leaves, ricola cough drops, caramel corn, and dirt. Not bad decent mouthfeel.

Hansen (7442) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2010
Perhaps too old? Aroma of butter and fatty, old bread. Sweet flavor, notes of white port. Creamy texture.
