Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2010
0.5l bottle. Pours orange -honey and unclear bronze-like body with some sediments and a beautiful fresh and big white head. Nose is fresh, sweet, hoppy, peach and passion fruit. Tastes are, as a great IIPA should be, rosted malts and lots of bitter hops. Finishes off with a long bitter ending. A truly great IIPA!

KnutAlbert (6435) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2010
Two Captains is described as a Double IPA, and is brewed to a recipe from a homebrewing competition. A cloudy ruby beer, loads of aromatic hops, like a breeze from the forest. Sweet and dry, pines, eucalyptus. It is strong, full bodied – and very drinkable. A bit too much spearmint toothpaste in the tail to declare pure genius here, but a damn good beer!

marcus (8278) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours cloudy golden with a massive off-white head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a sweet full-bodied caramel malt flavor with lots of citrus and pine. Very tasty.

arone12 (924) - Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Hazy orangeish brown color. Smells like a beer. Also smells like my back lawn. Grass and more grass with the sticks that hit my bocce balls. How rude. Taste is similar to what i would think the back lawn would taste like. Very bitter. Not bad!

drowland (7353) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2011
6/1/11. 500mL bottle courtesy scotchzi. Hazy orange pour with a thick, frothy white head. Overwhelming catty, piney hop aroma with some citrus. Surprisingly subtle flavor with nice pale malt, huge bitter hops, and lingering citrus. Finishes extremely dry, my tongue feels like sandpaper.

Ungstrup (32164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2011
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of flowers and fruity hops on a caramel and malty background. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, spicy hops, fruits, and a bit of alcohol, leading to bitter finish.

1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours to a brassy amber body with a ridiculous eggshell white head that is super tall, whipped like meringue, lively, and leaves great lacing. The aroma is sweet candied grapefruit, pine resin, and oily hop essence. The flavor has a bit of caramel with a bitter grassy and pine resin hops with subtle floral after-notes. Almost oily there’s so many resinous hops. The palate is bitter but not over the top even with the huge resin character.

Tap at HashigoZake - not much aroma, awesome colour. The taste makes up for the lack of aroma, caramel body with a huge resiny bitterness.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle:   Caramel in color, thick and hazy, a bit dirty, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Bright citrusy nose, zesty, sweet candied hops.   Smells like a winner!   Moderately sweet up front, candied citrus peel, bitter but not biting.   Really smooth, mellow, fairly flavorful.   Finish loses a bit of umph tho.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   I wonder how this one would be fresh?   Mild bitterness lingers, semi-sweet citrus peel.   Better than I expected!   Well balanced in my book.
