Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of hops and citrus peal, as well as some notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, alcohol, over ripe fruits, and spices, leading to a dry grapefruity finish. Nice one. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

GABF. Clear amber beer. Very aromatic and bittering hops with a medicinal note. The aroma alone made me sneeze! 3.

Hazy amber - brown beer, good pale tan head. Light palate, semi dry and crispy. Creamy malt provides silky smoothness. Hops are minty and piney. Whisper of orange. The sage blends in nicely here. The juniper adding a nice subtle fruit. Finishes smooth and malty creamy with fresh hop spice. Nicely thought out IPA - the additions sepperating it out from the crowd. Very drinkable.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle from the Coop in Davis, CA. Copper amber color with a three-finger beige tan head. Rather evergreen aroma, but not over the top. Medium body with creamy carbonation. There is so much hop. It is almost juniper. It is almost sticky with resin and malt. Sage? Might be. Mostly really evergreen. If you love gin, this is for you. The juniper just rolls around the mouth. This might be something to preserve the body for the ages!
