Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2004
[At Jyske Øldage 2004, Kolding] An unclear orange beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by hops. The flavor is sweet hoppy and quite dry all the way thru, but especially in the end. An OK IPA, but I’ve tasted better.

joergen (25926) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2004
Orange beer with off white head. Powerfull aroma with lots of hops, aroma hops and pine needles. Nice malty flavour with notes of pine needles, that ends up with a powerfull hoppy bitterness.

Bottled. Hazy orangebrown colour, huge creamy beige head. Yeast and hops in aroma. Hops, yeast and citric fruit in flavour. Very pleasant IPA, though it could do with a bit more hops .)

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 12, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Full-bodied with a nice caramel sweetness fully balanced by a solid dose of aroma hops also leaving quite some bitterness. Perhaps I could have hoped fo a cleaner, more subtle hoppiness. But neat indeed. A gigantic, lumpy sediment at the bottom. 120406

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2005 Sampled cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Hazy amber. Grapefruity hop aroma. Richly malty, citric and potent. Dense, firm maltiness, slightly fruity. Aromatic, bitter finish. American style, both when it comes to hop and malt profile.

madmitch76 (22102) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
18th July 2008. Soft amber coloured IPA. Plenty of hops that impart a little more bitterness than fruit. However the bitterness is not overwhelming. Mild malt. Decent.
