From 75 cL bottle, thanks to Storm. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Quite fruity aroma with a distinct grapefruit note. Very dry almost woody flavour which then turns to a quite fruity and almost citric fruity flavour. Finish is dry and citric. Too much dryness for my liking.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2008
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a biege head. The aroma is sweet and quite hoppy. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops, grass, and grapefruit. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, NY
Beautiful dark mahogany color; generous creamy head; sticky lace. The aroma is perfumy, with caramel, creamy, not much hoppy, maybe soapy, a noble touch of yeast. Medium body strength; dark caramel flavor, spicy (pepper); reasonable bitterness, a bit dusty and with a very light soap impression. Quite strong final bitterness. No hop qualities. Unimpressive, somehow boring.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2003
Dark amber-brown. Lightly tanned head. Rich woody aroma with caramel maltiness. Slight chocolatey notes, rich hops. Smooth. I like this balanced, "English-style" Imperial IPA...reminds me a little of last year's Big A from Smuttynose.

bhensonb (11089) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Bomber from Half Time. Pours dark ruddy amber with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma of roast caramel. Flavor is floral/fruit with caramel and then some arguably citrus rind bitter. Itís not NW bitter, but the hops are all over the malt. Itís a pretty good drink.

jcwattsrugger (11083) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2008
22oz bottle-pours a big shaving cream light tan head with lots of lacing and mahogany color. Aroma is nice citrus/earthy hops, some medium malt. Taste is nice citrus/earthy/metallic hops-bitter, some medium malt, nutty, alcohol. Surprisingly on the light side of medium body for a some what thin mouth feel, although a good American strong ale.
