pcerebral (2) - , Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2009 does not count
Tasted from bottle -- 22/10/10 on the cap. Tasted March 2, 2009. Gorgeous hop aroma of pine and some grapefruit. Great golden color. It states 6.9% alcohol and you can get the bite with the hops on the finish. But it balances nicely with the malty sweetness. It is hard to stop drinking it. I am very impressed and love this beer. Wish it was a little cheaper to be able to enjoy more often, but it is still well worth it.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2009
[Sampled with the trio: Svoger, Svogergylp and Adenila Foged at EBF, 2008.] Although it is long time I’ve tasted this I remember some nice fruity simcoe sweetness, but also rather challenging with stickyness.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2008
On tap @ EBF 2008. Hazy, dark golden to amber body with a small off-white head. Strong aroma of citrus fruit and hay. Flavor is malt, caramel, fruit and lots of hops. It’s strong in alcohol, strong in hops and still manage to be relatively balanced. Long and bitter finish.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Draught at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Cloudy, slightly reddish amber. Hops and malt flavours both turned up to 10 compared to the single IPA - both on the nose and in the flavour. Less classy than the single IPA, this is more of a brawler with one hell of a punch.
