yespr (31625) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2008
From tap. Pours hazy brown with a diminished white head. Baking yeasty and dense hoppy aroma. Flavour to is quite yeasty although with an extremely dominant hoppy simcoe flavour and bitterness. Bone dry and hoppy burning finish. But something went wrong with the yeast in this one.

Ungstrup (29663) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2009

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2008
(On tap) Hazy dark brown with an off-white head. Fat, peachy hop aroma - almost a little leathery. Quite full-bodied with sweet caramel and fruit. The alcohol and the hop bite combined almost burn my lips while the bitterness in the finish is surprisingly moderate. 130908

joergen (21291) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008

oh6gdx (20821) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2008
Draught@EBF2008. Deep hazy ambery colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity hops, alcohol, very sweet, and also has some mild notes of vanilla. Falvour is grass, alcohol, mild fruity hoppy dryness. Nice brew otherwise, but a little bit sticky sweet.

omhper (19796) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2008
Draught at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Hazy brown. Intense perfumy piney nose. Sweetish and full bodied with ridiculous amounts of hops. Inky and orangey together with licorice. The bitterness grows to the proportions of a category-5 hop hurricane. Unbalanced, but that is no doubt the point with it.

cgarvieuk (14957) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2008
draught at EBF Copenhagen 2008 ... Hazy Dirty brown ... very bright hop nose and very hoppy it was ... huge hop kick up front ... quite bitter and more hops. Not my thing.

Tap at EBF: Muddy amber with a off white head. Nose is Simcoe hops... Pine, peach & grapefruit. Power bitter & sticky. Crisp. Body is medium. Some sweet malts & sugar. Extremely one dimensional but nevertheless very nice & tasty!
