Bottle shared by footbalm. Pours a cloudy copper with a large creamy white head and lots of particulates at the bottom. A nice nose of biter hops, fruity, some caramel as well. The flavor is mostly bitter and quite fruity in the beginning, more pine bitterness in the finish. Decent.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 On tap at KØ-10. It pours a big, dense, off-white head over a hazy, orange-golden body. The aroma is resiny and piney with a good maltyness in the back. Bitter flavor but not intense, really piney and with lots of caramel-sweet maltyness. Bitter and sweet finish, with the hops playing the lead role. Full-bodied. Surprisingly balanced for a beer this bitter, almost easy drinkable. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 100507

Bottle, 375ml corked. A hazy one, even some floaties, and a small, off-white head on top of the brown to copper body. Loads of hops on the nose. Pine cones, resin, citrus, freshly mowed grass and a little caramel as well. Bitter, hop-dominated flavor with some malty caramel in the back. Full-bodied and warming, with a lasting bitter finish where there’s citrus peel, grass and pine cones. Judging from my words one might get the impression that it’s almost all hops. That isn’t very wrong, but considering it’s theoretical bitterness level, it’s sort of balanced. 101229

Bottle courtesy of and shared with Balazs, thanks a lot!
Deep opalescent amber beer with a small lacing off white head. Sweet in aroma with caramel and honey, after a second the fruity-citrussy and resiny hop comes throught the liqueric and alcoholic perfume. At the first slips the sweet caramel base rules the palate, but after a while the hop-bomb explodes with a powerful resiny and green citrussy flavor. For hop-heads, yes...

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2010
Poured with a murky-amber color and a tan, thick lacing foam. Fruity aroma with grapefruit, pine and hints of citrus. Bitter taste in a dense body with medium carbonation. Extremely bitter, dry finish. Similar experience to biting into a grapefruit. Pretty good.

Draft @ Bishops Arms, Malmö. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy bitter grapefruit aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor with piny hints. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter grapefruit finish with a long bitter aftertaste.

Draught @ Phred’s in Hokkaido ! Huge aroma, makes its presence known with the beckoning smell of beervana. Thick and substantial it starts out hoppy and becomes richer and more balanced as the beer fills your mouth. Doesn’t ever feel like an extreme hop experiment, it is a wonderful balance of just right bitterness with wonderful sustaining malty sweetness. Long, long, finish which again turns bitter but in such a good way !! Awesome stuff.

Been really excited about this one for quite some time and I finally scored it in my most recent trade. The color was pretty dark, with a hue of dark brown with goldish tints. The carbonation was pretty spot on and the head retention held up as well. The aroma/taste was hoppy with notes of citrus hops. It was quite bitter, of course, but not super overpowering. It did sort of remind me of Dogfish 90, but with a kick.

LoFi (1593) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2010 Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thick head. Aroma is very hoppy. Tastes of citrus hops with a sweet caramel. Alcohol warmth more than taste. Not as bitter as expected, actually pretty well balanced, and definitely to my taste.

Draugt at De Klomp in Lkpg, Sweden. What can I say. It´s very bitter!! Well, I know, it´s intended to be that but it´s little to much for my taste. Even for me who likes bitter and hopy beer.
