Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad:
Murky orange/brown, thin head, sticky, lots of lacing. The nose is juicy and citrusy with some tart earthy malts and a grassy undertone. The flavor is balanced, citric, nice body, creamy, tasty and floral. Yum! Thanks Jens!

Thanks Ungstrup. A murky orange-amber body with an ample white head. Aroma is of sweet apple and orange notes plus abundant crystal malt character that outshines the hops at this point. Nice woodsy flavor with some welcome lacerative bitterness. Very nicely balanced by abundant maltiness. A little peaked perhaps, but still an enjoyable, quality beer.

Courtesy of Ungstrup. Bottle, 6 months old. Yeasty, orange-brown appearance in the glass. Evidently evolved a bit in the bottle, such the malt dominates, with a viscous mouthfeel. Apricot, malt, light Cascade presence. Slightly past its prime, though still very enjoyable.

Big thanks to hopdog and egajdzis for sharing this rare beer, aquired in a trade from denmark. Pours a clooudy peach amber with a nice head, lots of floaties- yeast and hop particles. Aroma is a touch grassy, but overall very nice and full of cascade hops- some metallicy earthy citrus and a bit of pine. Also a bit of light crystal malts in the aroma as well as a touch of solvent like phenols. More citrus and harsh pine in the flavor backed by some nice clean crystal malts and a touch of earthy yeasty characteristics from the bottom of the bottle mixed in with the beer. The nice slightly harsh hop bitterness really stood out in the end, and made it very enjoyable overall. A very well made cascade IPA. These guys rock.

Thanks to egajdzis & hopdog for this...
Another American IPA from our Danish friends using a hop from the good ’ol USA.
Appears a hazy, cider toned brown with a small off white head.
Smell is of citrusy orange hops, and very American.
Taste is of sweet hop resin and light traces of caramel.
Mouthfeel is ok with the sugary citrus sweetness settling on the front of the tongue.
