Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Had on tap at the brewery in August 2009. Poured a dark copper color with minimal head. The smell contained some hops, but not nearly what I was expecting given the name. There is a significant malt presence, but the malts themselves don’t blend terribly well, and the hop overlay is not enough to disguise that fact. The beer itself is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is average. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-20-2009

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy dark orange with a thick white head and lacing on the glass. Nose is citrus and pine resin, slight hints of grain sweetness. Flavor is more balanced than expected, moderate-high hop bitterness up front with moderate citrus/pine hop flavor quickly transitions to thick grainy malts, light toast and caramel, finishes bitter and slightly sweet. Full body, moderate-high prickly carbonation, chewy texture. A big 10% DIPA/bwine hybrid, would peg as either a malty DIPA or American bwine with the prominent hop character; solid and balanced but not quite at the standout level; quite drinkable even at 10%.

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops lending it notes of grass, grapefruit, and lemon, leading to a bitter finish.

Bottle at Papsø, thanks Thomas. Hazy orange coloured with a medium sized off-white ehad. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, hops and pine needles. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, hops, citrus and pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy to murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruity and citrusy hops. Sweet caramelish, slight sticky and yet with an uplifting citrusy and crisp hops touch. Ends dry and bitter into the far finish.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Plovmand. Pours an almost clear amber with a dense and frothy head leaving some lacework. Intense hop aroma, a little perfumy. Medium body, some caramel, a little ashes and and some intense and perfumy hops. I believe the massive IBUs are buried under quite some caramel malts. Solid though. 221110
