ysusi (19) - Mexico, - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle. Golden to amber color, very cloudy. Big creamy head, long lasting. Biscuity aromas, followed by citrus, some dust and a bit of pine, but less than expected. Almost no ginger. In mouth, mostly heavy bitterness. Very long finish. Nicely carbonated, sticky palate. A very good IPA, but less Christmas in the bottle than I expected

mambossa (172) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Pour into giant snifter, super active head and bright gold body. Nose of mineraly yeast, some stonefruit and citrus zest, no pine, no ginger. Flavor is the same; mineral off-flavor, heavy malt presence, not enough hops, fairly sweet. I suppose some festive pine and spice notes as it warms...Did I get a bad bottle? This was pretty disappointing. Too much undesirable mineraly notes.

Vestergaard (1107) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a hazy golden with a big, white head. Aroma has sweet caramel malts, hops, resin, pine, not really any ginger, bread, very big malt presence. Taste is pretty sweet, but with a fairly nice hoppy bitterness to it. Pretty full bodied, average carbonation. Maybe a hint of the ginger in the late after taste.

rekvium (140) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
From tap. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of resin, spruce, light caramel, seems sweet. Taste is a bit on the sweet side, with some light notes of nuts, caramel. Heavy notes of resin, spruce, light citrus, substantial bitterness. Alcohol well hidden. Too sweet for my taste, but quite enjoyable.

Saeglopur (1332) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 8, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore.
Amber, hazy body, with a big, creamy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, grass, orange, some passion fruit, some spices, some biscuit.
Tastes of grapefruit, orange, pine, resin, spices, biscuit, some alcohol.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, medium dry, piney, zesty, resinous, spicy, a bit malty, with some alcohol warmth.

Nice one. More on the heavy side, with a full, sweet malt backbone, but also with enough bitter, aromatic hops. Alcohol is quite present. I don’t get much of the ginger, except some spiciness from the background. Overall nothing outstanding, but nonetheless a nice, warming IPA for winter.
